Wednesday Arrived With An Excuse From Tuesday !

Wednesday's here, so I'm heading over to Lakes Cafe and Pub. I've heard some unusual stories about some happenings there the other night and, as per my wont, "I gots ta know". I don't know why Tuesday seemed to hang around so long, but it finally left with a sniffle and Wednesday has come in with a bang. 

The Goldman Family were awarded rights to (A) O.J. Simpson's unpublished book, "If I Did It". The Goldmans plan to publish the book with the title, "Confessions Of A Double Murderer". I hope they do and make a ton of money. You'll be paying the price for a long time, O.J. !

The Pictures: Tea fields of Japan and Jackie's sunflowers. I also added some of the artist Eric's paintings of the brewery so you could see them in the "Ken Burns" style.

This Date In History: 1291; The cantons of Uri, Schwyz and Unterwaldon form a protective confederation that will become the nation of Switzerland. 1954; The Yangtze River floods in China, killing 40,000 people and forcing 10 million others to leave their homes. 1981; Music Telvision (MTV) debuts on the air with a video of the Buggles' Video killed the Radio Star'.

Birthdays: Herman Melville, author of "Moby Dick" (1819), Anne Hebert, poet and novelist (1916), Jerry Garcia, singer and guitarists (1942).

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:

                   

That's it for today my little cantelopes. More tomorrow.

Stay Tuned !

Thanks for running the pic of the sunflowers again! They always make me smile! As I was looking at the pics of the brewery, I wondered if anyone had ever mistakenly walked into the wall because it looks so real!! That would truly be affirmation of a perfect piece of artwork!!

Still waiting for the #,  <grin>

I've never really understood the significance of Moby Dick. In America it seems to be considered a novel of great importance. In England it is generally considered just another children's book.
