TODAY IS

This is George Washington's actual birthday. We're getting him the same thing we got him last year.
Used to be, we got Lincoln and Washington's birth off as separate holidays.
The last American president ever to say, "I cannot tell a lie."
If you're old enough, you remember when we would get this off as a holiday.
See, it should have been a three-day weekend.

Drew Barrymore turns 44 today. She hasn't spoken to E.T. in 37 years. E.T. is just as surprised she made it this far, too.

James Blunt, you're beautiful and you're 45 as of today.

ON THIS DAY

On this date in 1630, Popcorn is introduced by an Native American named Quadequina to the English colonists at their first Thanksgiving dinner in America.
Obviously, popcorn for Thanksgiving didn't catch on.
The good news about Thanksgiving in February is that it would mean a couple of football games to watch today.
He then said, "OK, we've done our part. Now you invent movies!"
He actually introduced the popcorn by singing an ancient Native American song: "Let's all go to the lobby, let's all go to the lobby..."
One asked, "So, when's the movie start?" and the chief replied, "In around 300 years!"
The popcorn was introduced to the new settler by the local Reddenbachier tribe.

It was on this date in 1819 that Spain ceded Florida to the United States with the agreement that no one named Jeb should ever be elected governor. I'm expecting this one to go to court any day now.
