Wild Scottish Cat ~ My Bruiser ~ Lobster House Cheddar Bay Biscuits ~ Thursday Night Beating ~ A 5th on the 5th!

Good 44º cloudy 'chance of rain' morning.
Yesterday was another long day of working on calendars. Foggy and cloudy most of the day.

A wild cat in Scotland... I have this on my desktop background. Love his face!

And speaking of cats.... mine, Mr. Bruiser, has taken to sleeping in this position while I watch TV...
Of course, the flash made him open his eyes!

Yesterday Bill and Jeannie were in Medford and stopped to munch at Lobster House. She LOVES their Cheddar Bay Biscuits.. as do I. Here are two copycat recipes ... SO easy!

Historically this date...
1848 – California Gold Rush: In a message before the U.S. Congress, US PresidentJames K. Polk confirms that large amounts of gold had been discovered in California.

1932 – German-born Swiss physicist Albert Einstein is granted an American visa.

1933 – Prohibition in the United States ends: Utah becomes the 36th U.S. state to ratify the Twenty-first Amendment to the United States Constitution, thus establishing the required 75% of states needed to enact the amendment (this overturned the 18th Amendment which had made the manufacture, sale, or transportation of alcohol illegal in the United States).

1979 – Sonia Johnson is formally excommunicated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for her outspoken criticism of the church concerning the proposedEqual Rights Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

And births this date include....

1839 – George Armstrong Custer, American general (d. 1876)

1879 – Clyde Cessna, American airplane manufacturer (d. 1954)

1901 – Walt Disney, American animated film producer (d. 1966)

1932 – Little Richard, American singer and pianist
Last night's football...
Looks like the Cowboys not only rounded them up, but herded them, and sent them to the slaughter house!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.

December 5th
National Repeal Day

In 1919, the 18th Amendment to the United States Constitution was passed by Congress, making it against the law to manufacture, sell or transport “intoxicating liquors for beverage purposes” in America. During the same year, Congress also passed the Volstead Act, which provided for the enforcement of Prohibition, despite President Woodrow Wilson’s veto. While thousands of bootleggers stills were destroyed, organize crime flourished. After 13 dry years, prohibition in America ended on this day in 1933 when the 21st Amendment to the United States Constitution was passed and ratified, repealing the 18th Amendment.
In honor of National Repeal Day, why not enjoy a tasting brew or festive cocktail with a few friends, co-workers or special someone and celebrate the constitution and the end of the Prohibition era?

A 5th on the 5th!!!!
A hundred years ago, 1960's, when I worked for the Yellow Pages downtown Los Angeles the building at one time had a speakeasy on the top floor. There was a secret elevator that went from about the 3rd floor, well disguised, to the top to carry the people and the booze. Here is what the building looks like now... Westmorland and Beverly Blvd... close to Vermont. Where it says Public Storage it used to say Yellow Pages.... it was visible from the Hollywood Freeway.

You know you're not in California when you pull through a drive-up window like at fast food stores- and can legally drink the liquor sold through it .

My gf Becky introduced me to drive-through liquor windows in Montana. It was loosely related to 5th on 5th.

Not to worry. At least you know I read):-

Have a good day. The cat was gorgeous! L.
