Look! Up in the Sky! It’s…

…the Great Comet of 1861!

It was discovered today in…anybody? …Anybody? …1861, by John Tebbutt of Windsor, New South Wales, Australia. Mr. Tebbutt just happened to glance up from Down Under and there it was.

During my senior year in high school I drove a Not-So-Great Comet of 1962. It was a Mercury and a real babe dispersant. Sigh…

So much became instantly possible…

…today in 1958 when the trademark “Velcro” was registered. AND it makes that great ripping noise!

Two of our birthdays are wonderful singers.

–          The Queen of Motown, Mary Wells was born today in 1943. Sing! “Nuthin’ you can do cause I’m stuck like glue to…”

–          It’s also the birth date of Stevie Wonder in 1950. Talk about “wonder”-ful!

The other birthday…not so much.

–          But he is a very funny guy. Stephen Colbert was born today in 1964. Practice “truthiness” today!

I can’t get the Great and Not-So-Great Comets out of my head. Let’s have a;

Comet Cocktail

1 ½ oz. Cognac

1 ½ tsp. Cointreau

1 ½ tsp. Drambuie

1 oz. Grapefruit Juice

1 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake ingredients well with ice.

Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Sing! “Don’t you worry ‘bout a thing!”

Cheers!
