ON THIS DAY

On this date in 1788, the U.S. Constitution went into effect as it was officially ratified, so we'd have something to argue over what it really meant.

In 1834, Cyrus Hall McCormick patented the reaping machine... to go along with his sewing machine. "As ye sew, so shall ye reap!" Might as well do it the easy way. It was exactly what all those who sewed were waiting for.

On this date in 1879, F.W. Woolworth opened his very first store. It was called a "Five & Dime" store, years before those became drug-related terms.

In 1913, Georgia Thompson became the first woman to make a parachute... shortly after becoming the first woman to ever be a on an airplane with failing engines.

On this date in 1939, doctors revealed that Lou Gehrig had Lou Gehrig's disease. What were the odds?

In 1940, Richard Nixon married Patricia Ryan. Nixon was honest and said before their marriage, "I'm not a cook!"

On this date in 1975, the movie "Jaws" hit theaters.
Suddenly, it was easy to get a great spot at the beach.
The big catch phrase at the beach that year was, "No, after you!"
That was the summer I was even afraid to go near a wading pool.




TODAY IS

Britain's Prince William of Wales celebrates his 35th birthday today.
Or "Wills" if you hang with him.
After years of school and training and royal upbringing, he's the queen's son known as "the one married to Kate!"
If you're looking for a gift idea, don't bother. He's married to Kate Middleton. And some day he'll be king.

Chris Pratt turns 38 today. Talk about a guy whose career is on fire! All of his contracts are printed on asbestos.

Juliette Lewis turns 44 today. She'll always be the daughter in "Christmas Vacation" to me.

Doug Savant hits birthday number 53 today. He played Tom Scavo on "Desperate Housewives."

Meredith Baxter and Michael Gross, who played the mom and dad on the old Michael J. Fox series, "Family Ties," both turn the big 7-0 today. That series must seem like a million years ago, but it's actually only 30 (1982-1989).

Ray Davies of The Kinks turns 73 and has more kinks than ever!

Bernie Kopel, who played Sigfried in the original "Get Smart" TV series, celebrates his 84th birthday today. Of course, he won't blow out the candles on his cake. This is KAOS... we do not BFFFFFFFFF here!
