Don’t Tell My Wife!

Today in 1858, Lyman Blake patented his shoe manufacturing machine. I am married to Kentucky’s answer to Imelda Marcos. I’m convinced she’s the sole (sole?) reason Zappos came to Kentucky.

There are other things to celebrate today

–          It’s National Fried Chicken Day.

–          Louisville’s Ned Beatty was born today in 1937, as was Janet Leigh in 1927. Ms. Leigh’s shower scene in the film PSYCHO kept us well out of the water until JAWS came along and finished the job.

–          The Rolling Stones’ “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction” hit number one on the charts today in 1965. Sing! “Baby better come back, maybe next week, coz you see…”

Famous first meetings!

–          Today in 1965, Jefferson Airplane formed – a fine idea.

–          The White House Plumbers Unit was formed today in 1971 to plug leaks – a poor idea.

–          John Lennon met Paul McCartney for the first time today in 1957 – the best idea!

Quote of the day

Actor Sylvester Stallone was born today in 1946.

“For every guy, there is an opportunity to be a lot better than he thought he could be. We can’t all be the star of the team, but we can be the star in our life. That’s where you set your goal.”

What else would you expect from Rocky?

Drink 4cast 4 2day

Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion” made its debut today in 1974. We’ll stretch a point and celebrate with a;

Mexican Prairie Fire Cocktail

¾ oz. Durango Gold Tequila

¼ oz. Tabasco Sauce

Pour Tequila into a shot glass.

Top with Tabasco.


Just when you thought it was safe…
