ON THIS DAY

On this date in 1429, Joan of Arc entered the besieged city of Orleans, to lead France in a victory over the British.
  • I believe she scored a goal in the second overtime.
  • Although, in time, they were the ones asking, "How do you like your stake?"
  • The British never forgot and eventually, held a roast in her honor.

In 1913, the zipper was patented by Swedish-born engineer Gideon Sundback.
  • When someone said, "Uh, your barn door is open" it actually was.
  • Up until that time, it was common for people to say to each other, "Uh, nothing is down."
  • Please, don't wear it at half-mast in its honor.
  • Since then, it's had its ups and downs.
  • Before then, the phrase, "Careful. The horse may get out of the barn!" only applied to animals.

On this date in 1965, a 6.5 earthquake hit Seattle. It was the last time the city would shake that much until years later, when Starbucks opened its first store and made the coffee too strong.

In 1988, McDonald's announced they were going to build their first restaurant in Russia. They also unveiled the McBorst.


On this date in 1998, Israel celebrated it's 50th birthday and almost immediately, the junk mail from AARP started showing up.
