A team of six Clydesdales first pulled an Anheuser-Busch wagon (filled with beer from the company's St Louis brewery) in 1933 to celebrate the repeal of Prohibition.

As of last year there were approximately 52,300 nuns serving in the United States, with an average age of sixty-one, down from a quarter-million in 1950, and about 175,000 in 1975. That means if I'd listened to the sisters who visited on career fair days in school trying to talk me into religious life, I could have had great odds at a promotion to the top with so little competition among the habit-wearing scene.

Contrary to popular opinion, DNA testing did NOT conclusively prove that Thomas Jefferson was the father of his slave Sally Hemings' children.  What the tests did show was that someone in Jefferson's bloodline fathered ONE of her children.  It could have been him - but it also could have been his brother or his nephew, who also lived at Monticello and had as much, if not more, contact with the slave population there as Jefferson did.

One advantage to being an old git is that you remember how things were. From Marty Sklar's "Dream It! Do It!'"

1952 - Tuition at UCLA was $100.00, and that is not per term nor semester, but per year.
Now - Tuition at UCLA is $14,000.00 per year.

1954 - L.A. had 4 papers that were published every day.
Now - L.A. has 1 paper that is published every day. And the last I heard, the Koch Brothers were interested in purchasing it.

To show how fast  California has grown.

1952 - Anaheim had a total population of 14,000.
Now - 353.643, and it is not the largest city in California, but only the 10th largest city, and it may not even be the largest city in Orange County. By some estimates Santa Ana is larger.

Next time: There are still places in America, where you can express yourself freely.

The first reports of the yeti called it The Metoh Snow Man.
However, due to a telegraph error somewhere between The Himalayas & London, the report announced it as The Metch Snow Man.

Not knowing what the word "metch" meant, an editor look it up in the dictionary, and found the word metch defined as "capable of being abominated".

And that's how The Metoh Kangmi became The Abominable Snow Man.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
