★~ Social Media Day:
Mashable’s launched social media day in 2010 as a way to recognize the digital revolution happening right before our eyes. I guess this means you should spend more time on your favorite social media site today. Ok.
★~ Meteor Day:
The word “meteor” refers to the visible streak of light produced by fallen debris from space—”meteoroids.” We also call these beautiful sights “shooting stars” or “falling stars.” Tonight, make sure you look up and, if you see a meteor, don’t forget to make a wish.
Not turkey dinner, summer turkey! Light and easy…
★~ This Day in History:
♥~ 1936 – Margaret Mitchell’s, Gone with the Wind, one of the best-selling novels of all time and the basis for a blockbuster 1939 movie, was published. Mitchell was forced to quit her job as a reporter at the Atlanta Journal to recover from a series of physical injuries. With too much time on her hands, Mitchell soon grew restless. Working on a Remington typewriter, a gift from her second husband, John R. Marsh, in their cramped one-bedroom apartment, Mitchell began telling the story of an Atlanta belle named Pansy O’Hara. . .
♥~ 1962 – Sandy Koufax strikes out 13 batters and walks five to lead the Brooklyn Dodgers to victory over the New York Mets 5-0 with his first career no-hitter. Koufax went on to throw three more no-hitters, including a perfect game on September 9, 1965, in which he allowed no hits and no walks.
♥~ 1994 – The temperature at Death Valley, California reached 128 degrees (Fahrenheit). The only other time it has been that hot (since 1961 when weather data was first recorded) was on July 14, 1972. In case you are wondering, the coldest day was at Death Valley was January 30, 1988, when it reached zero.
♥~ 1971 – Monica Potter actress: Boston Legal, The Young and the Restless, Without Limits, Patch Adams, Along Came a Spider
★~ Good to Know:
Ok, We all know road rage is BAD. People get KILLED. But well, you have to admit this is really funny. And a laugh is a good way to start out Monday.
Today is the last day of the June and you know what that means don’t you? It’s time to prepare for the first of the month and all that can be yours by simple saying ”rabbit, rabbit!” The first words out of your mouth on the first day of July must be “rabbit, rabbit.
We are on the radar for severe thunderstorms which is preferable, in my opinion, to the ongoing fireworks. Vickie, our friend and camp helper, tried a new product from Amazon to help her 5 pound pup make it through the fireworks called Zylkene. She says it’s working better than Pet Calm. The trick is to start giving any of these products early. If you wait until your pup is already stressed fuggetaboutit.
Did you think KLMs world cup tweet was racist? It’s always a bad idea to offend potential customers, but racist?? And the tweet gave Aeromexico the perfect retort. So far ,it seems more Mexican – Americans are offended than people actually living in Mexico. I was disappointed they took the tweet down.
Merry Monday to one and all!
