Version 1.0 or a Perfect 10? Your Choice.

Wilkommen, bienvenue, welcome to today!

The musical “Cabaret” opened on Broadway today in 1966. Sing it with me; “What good is sitting alone on a shelf?”

It’s Universal Children’s Day. If you know any universal children, treat them well.

And it’s Teacher’s Day in Vietnam. Might an apple be in order?

Birthdays of interest…at least to me;

–          Dick Tracy’s creator, Chester Gould was born today in 1900.

–          Rupp’s Runt, Louis Dampier was born today in 1944. If only there had been a three-point shot in his day…

–          Newscaster Judy Woodruff (1946), Olympic gymnast Dominique Dawes (1976), and Tommy’s brother Dick Smothers (1939) were all born today.

–          We could make a most curious movie with today’s birthdays. Actors Sean Young (1959), Bo Derek (1956), and Kaye Ballard (1926) would star. The fine French director Henri-Georges Clouzot (1907) would direct and we’ll get Alistair Cooke (1908) to introduce our film when it goes to television.

Today in 1985 was the day Microsoft released Windows 1.0.  That sounds prehistorical doesn’t it? Let’s toast the event with a;

Candle in the Window Cocktail

2 tsp. Hancock’s Bourbon

1 tsp. Cherry Brandy

2 oz. Castaway Cove Light Rum


1 dash Cocoa Powder

Combine ingredients in an Irish coffee mug, adding whipped cream and a sprinkle of chocolate powder on top.

That sounds like a perfect “10”.
