ON THIS DAY
On this date in 1758, in the French and Indian Wars, the British capture Fort Duquesne at what is now Pittsburgh, thanks to a couple of controversial calls by the officials. So, technically speaking, the British were the first stealers in town. They sacked the quarterback four times.
In 1884, evaporated milk was invented when a cow was vaporized.
On this date in 1885, Thomas Hendricks died, the first vice-president to die while in office. Tough way to get semi-famous.
In 1922, the entrance to King Tut's tomb was discovered.
  • Of course, being out in the middle of the desert, none of the workers had enough money for the cover charge.
  • He was buried there so he could be close to his mummy.
  • The head of the expedition grew very attached to his mummy. That same day, FTD introduced their Mummy's Day Bouquet.
  • As they walked in, everything seemed like it was made of clay. One researcher wrote, "I tot I taw a putty Tut!"

One month from today, people. Four weeks from Friday. The clock is running.
George W. Bush's twin daughters, Barbara and Jenna Bush, turn 34 today.
  • They're not identical twins, as their dad likes to say, "just fraternity twins."
  • In the former president's mind, that makes them 68.
  • They're fraternal twins because their dad belonged to a fraternity.
Christina Applegate, the daughter on "Married with Children" turns 44 today. Ironically, the guy who played her dad -- Ed O'Neil -- is now playing a guy married to a woman her age on "Modern Family."
Amy Grant hits double nickels today, turning 55. Listen to her big hit, "Baby, Baby" and tell me she's not singing, "Baby, Vaby."
Funny guy John Larroquette turns 68 today. He's one of those guys who very premature gray hair. Made junior high pretty tough.
Shopping Reminder Day -- It's exactly one month before Christmas, time to remind you that there are only 24 more shopping days after today until Christmas (excluding Sundays, Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve).
