We’ll Always Have Paris.

The Allies liberated Paris today in 1944. I probably need to watch “Casablanca” again…or simply recite it from memory.

It’s also Independence Day in Uruguay. Another chance to use those leftover fireworks!

Attention rock fans! Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run” was released on this day in 1975. Yes, I was and am still there.

We have interesting birthdays to celebrate today.

–         Cowboy writer Bret Harte (1836) and TV chef Rachel Ray (1968) were both born today.

–         Kentucky’s own Achy Breaky singer Billy Ray Cyrus was born today in (1961).

–         Dancer Ruby Keeler (1910) shares this birthday with actor and Gort’s best friend, Michael Rennie (1909). “Klaatu Barada Nikto” indeed.

–         Composer Leonard Bernstein (1918) was born today, as was the creator of Pogo, Walt Kelly (1913) – “We have met the enemy and he is us!”

Our “Drink 4cast 4 2day” is to celebrate the birth today in 1930 of Actor Sean Connery.

He’s still my favorite “Bond…James Bond”.
