Pluto! Pup or Planet? Discuss.

Who knows where this might lead?

Today in 1915 gambling was legalized in Nevada.  Without this, the film “Viva Las Vegas” could not have been made and we might not have ever discovered the profound acting talents of Ann-Margret and Elvis Presley. Could this have been what the voters in Nevada had in mind?

Striving to keep things on the high road…

Willie Mosconi set a world record today in 1954 that remains standing. Mr. Mosconi ran 526 consecutive balls without a miss during a straight pool exhibition at East High Billiard Club in Springfield, Ohio.

My personal best run is 32, but I’m practicing…occasionally.

From the stunningly creative title department…

Bob Dylan’s first album was released today in 1962. The title was “Bob Dylan”.

There are two birthdays today that caught my eye.

–          Lexington’s golf champion Gay Brewer was born today in 1932.

–          The “Bond Girl” that started it all, Ursula Andress was born today in 1936. “Dr. No” was a fun film until Ms. Andress walked out of the sea. Then it became a lovely film to watch. I’m told by most of my male friends that Ms. Andress’ acting talents fully matched Ms. Ann-Margret’s. I’m not so sure. Obviously, I need to see both films again to decide.

Drink 4cast 4 2day.

The planet Pluto was photographed for the first time today in 1915, but it was not recognized as a planet. Does that count? Let’s celebrate the event anyway with a;

Sunset on Pluto Cocktail

2 oz. Blue Curacao

¼ oz. Lemon Juice

2 ½ oz. Orange Juice

Mix ingredients together with ice.

To the moon!

Cheers!
