A Day of “No!”


–          Don Gaspar de Portola led the first documented European visit to San Francisco Bay today in 1769. There were no cable cars, but it’s rumored that he did wear flowers in his hair and left his heart there when he departed.

–          Cheerleading was invented today! Rah!! Today in 1898 Johnny Campbell of the University of Minnesota led the crowd in cheering on the football team. No pyramid though – only one guy.

–          Today in 1920, KDKA of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania started broadcasting as the first commercial radio station. There were no callers…it was a pretty dull effort.

–          Penguin Books was found not guilty of obscenity in the LADY CHATTERLEY’S LOVER case today in 1960. It’s just art folks. Chill.

AND there are birthdays! Sis! Boom! Bah!!

–          Two singers who obviously have no first names were born today; k. d. lang (1961) and J. D. Souther (1945).

–          Baseball’s no-hit master, Johnny Vander Meer (1914) was born today. Have the pitchers and catchers reported yet?

    I just wanted to say while doing the Bourbon Trail we found your store in Danville. We had the best time in your fabulous store. Everyone in there was very kind, helpful and provided us with a wealth of information about bourbons, especially the craft bourbons. A shout out to whomever suggested Pogues!

    Really, a highlight of the Trail for us was ya’lls Liquor Barn. I only wish I lived in KY, especially Danville. Thanks again for everything.
