Yesterday I had a great chat with an old friend, you Temple people will remember Barry Perrou..... We talked for quite a while. Nice. Reminiscing ... fun.

 
Last night I woke about 3 am with a sore throat. UGH. So, I poured ½ cup of water and added 1 T. apple cider vinegar and sipped it down slowly. I know, I know, it tastes like you are drinking out of a pickle jar! BUT.... the sore throat went away and is still gone! So there. I swear by that stuff!

And births this date include...

1913 – Lloyd Bridges, American actor (d. 1998)


 



1929Martin Luther King, Jr., American civil rights leader, recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize (d. 1968)


"It should come as no surprise that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican. In that era, almost all black Americans were Republicans. Why? From its founding in 1854 as the anti-slavery party until today, the Republican Party has championed freedom and civil rights for blacks. And as one pundit so succinctly stated, the Democrat Party is as it always has been, the party of the four S's: slavery, secession, segregation and now socialism."
" It was the Democrats who fought to keep blacks in slavery and passed the discriminatory Black Codes and Jim Crow laws. The Democrats started the Ku Klux Klan to lynch and terrorize blacks. The Democrats fought to prevent the passage of every civil rights law beginning with the civil rights laws of the 1860s, and continuing with the civil rights laws of the 1950s and 1960s."



1968Chad Lowe, American actor



1979Drew Brees, American football player

January 15th
National Strawberry Ice Cream Day



(Whaaaaaa....in January?? I love it, but I'll pass today.... Sort of apropos this pink ice cream day would be Bill's birthday!)
 

It's the third musketeer of ice cream flavors. It's no coincidence that strawberry ice cream makes up one-third of every quart of Neapolitan. After vanilla and chocolate, strawberry is the next most popular flavor of ice cream. As such, it has earned its own day of recognition, National Strawberry Ice Cream Day. Go ahead, you can still eat ice cream in January!
