★~Todays Quote: “On Monday, when the sun is hot, / I wonder to myself a lot: / `Now is it true, or is it not, / That what is which and which is what?’” ~A. A. Hodge quotes
★~ Monday Morno Day: The Mamas and the Papas sang “Every other day of the week is fine- yeah! But whenever Monday comes, but whenever Monday comes, you can find me cryin’. Lets face it-Monday has a bad reputation. Monday needs our help! Todays challenge is to find a few good things to celebrate about Monday’s and share them.
★~ Today in History:
♥~ 1952 – The Moondog Coronation Ball was held at the Cleveland Arena. Promoted by Alan Freed and two partners, it was later cited as the first rock concert. Due to the overwhelming response, a second show was added, but the second batch of tickets were not marked as such. So, by the time openers Paul Williams and The Hucklebuckers got the show on the road, an estimated 25,000 kids had showed up — at the venue that could only hold about 10,000 folks. Windows were smashed, doors were crashed and the fire marshall ordered a quick end to the ‘show’.
♥~ 1985 – Boy George said he would never marry, settle down, or become a father because he was “too eccentric!”
♥~ 2001 – The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that hospitals could not test pregnant women for drug use without their consent.
♥~ 2003 – A 25-year-old software engineer from Los Angeles, visiting Las Vegas, hit pay dirt: a world record million jackpot on a slot machine.
★~ Born Today:
♥~ 1962 – Matthew Broderick Tony Award-winning actor: The Producers ; films: War Games, The Freshman, Family Business, Ladyhawke, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
♥~ 1962 – Rosie O’Donnell comedienne, TV host: The Rosie O’Donnell Show, 42nd Annual Grammy Awards; actress: Sleepless in Seattle, The Flintstones, Exit to Eden, A Very Brady Sequel, Will & Grace, The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas
★~ Did You Know:
♥~ Monday’s color is Purple or violet.
♥~ If the sun is honored on Sunday, it follows that the Moon should be given a place of prominence on Monday. The word for Monday is derived from the word for Moon, “monandaeg”.
♥~ Monday is, associated with Silver when it comes to Alchemy, an ancient chemical science. According to Astrology, Monday is is ruled by the zodiac signs Cancer.
♥~ Monday is the only day of the week that is also an anagram for a single word-Dynamo.
♥~ Back in the days-Monday was wash day. There was logic behind this. Laundry was far and away the heaviest task a housewife faced, requiring a great deal of strength and fortitude to hand-wring clothes and carry big baskets of wet laundry to the clothesline from the basement washtubs. Monday was the day to do it, when you were still fresh and rested from Sunday.
♥~ And ending on a positive note if you were born on Monday, then you’re not homely. As the old rhyme goes, “Monday’s child is fair of face”. That’s a good thing!
♥~ My musical pick for today-Come Monday everything will be all right! Jimmy Buffett
