★~ Today’s Pictures: Thank you El Morno Friend Stevie, for sharing this beautiful Southwest Sunrise picture, taken by your friend: John Fausett.
★~ Today’s Quote: “I love how, in scary movies, the person yells out, “Hello?” As if the bad guy is gonna be like, “Yeah, I’m in the kitchen! Want a sandwich?” Unknown.
★~ World Hello Day:
Well, hello Dolly….It’s so nice to have you back on El Morno where you belong ….You’re lookin’ swell, Dolly, I can tell, Dolly, you’re still glowin’, you’re still crowin’, you’re still goin’ strong. . .Well, hello Dolly…
Oh Hello! Hello! Hello! Today is the day to say “hello” and to say it often and with meaning.
★~ False Confession Day:
False Confession Day encourages you to confess to something that’s untrue. For example, do you remember when five of the six Brady kids admitted that they had broken their mom’s favorite vase so Peter could still go on his camping trip?
Please follow a few simple rules for a safe and happy False Confession Day. Don’t falsely confess to a crime. Don’t falsely report someone lost, killed, or injured. Don’t falsely confess a relationship or love affair.
In celebration of False Confession Day, it might be fun to play “three lies and a truth.” I suspect this suggestion is going to fall as flat as a fritter on an EL Morno Monday, but I feel duty-bound to make it anyway. I’ll go first. I would love to travel to India, I have never ironed anything, I always clean up the same night as the party, and I enjoy making macramé hanging plant holders.
★~ World Television Day
“The United Nations General Assembly created this holiday in 1996. The inaugural celebration included the first World Television Forum, where leading media figures from the global community gathered to discuss the significance of television in today’s international issues. World Television Day highlights how communications can facilitate social and cultural development, and encourages cooperation and partnerships in international media. Since its invention in the early 1900s, television has served as a medium for communication, entertainment, and household culture. To celebrate World Television Day, spread the word about this holiday and encourage your local government officials to continue to support the development of television media”
Wow! I thought the origin of this day was to commemorate the dramatic and scandalous episodes of Gossip Girl – or perhaps remember back to the days of Grandpa Walton and J.R. Ewing. I really should get offline and pick up the remote more often. Who knew?
★~ Gingerbread Day:
I would keep it simple and whip up a pan of gingerbread – you can save the gingerbread house and cookies until after Thanksgiving. Never fear, El Morno will remind you.
★~ Today in History:
♥~ 1871 – The cigar lighter was patented by Moses F. Gale of New York City.
♥~ 1959 – Following his firing from WABC Radio in New York the day before, Alan Freed refused “on principle” to sign a statement that he never received money or gifts (payola) for plugging records. Incidentally, few may remember, but Freed left WABC while he was on the air. He was replaced in mid-record by Fred Robbins, who later became a nationally-known entertainment reporter for Mutual Radio.
♥~ 1980 – The largest TV audience ever, an estimated 82 million people, watched as Sue Ellen’s sister, Kristin Shepard, shot J.R. Ewing on Dallas. The jilted mistress was seen holding the smoking gun after a summer of viewers asking that haunting question, “Who Shot J.R.?” Eighty percent of all viewers watched the show
♥~ 1996 – Cathy Mullikin of Jackson, Tennessee, cooked her Thanksgiving turkey a week early, and she may not have been the only one. Cathy was one of 40-thousand people who got a free 1996 calendar from the county hospital that showed Thanksgiving on the wrong Thursday.
