Historically

1804 – Former United States Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton dies a day after being shot in a duel.

1917 – The Bisbee Deportation occurs as vigilantes kidnap and deport nearly 1,300 striking miners and others from Bisbee, Arizona.
 .... Interesting, as my mother lived in Bisbee at the time. She was 12 and my grandfather was a mining engineer at the Lavender Pit Mine. Never heard this discussed.

Yesterday morning with all the clouds covering us we had thunder. I heard it about 4 times. Then about 9am the rain started coming down. Didn't last long. Stayed just about 60º. Then again noon, more rain. By 3pm it was 85º and clouds were dissipating. Finally hit 90º.

 
Brian put together a surprise 40th birthday party for his lovely wife Jennifer at Tap Rock last evening. The theme was Mary Poppins, as Jen is a fan and has named her business of children's parties "Practically Perfect Children's  Parties"   ...
http://www.practicallyperfectchildrensparties.com/  Jen was totally surprised. Brian did an amazing job. Brian was Bert and I got Jen a Mary Poppins hat... a Smilebox to follow...


Coming home last night the full moon was amazing. No picture. Was too tired. Maybe tonight.
 
All I know. Happy Saturday. Nuff said. Ciao.

July 12th
Different Colored Eyes Day



Different Colored Eyes Day has two reasons to celebrate.  First of all, it celebrates diversity of eye color. Wouldn't the world be boring, if everyone had the same color of eyes?
Secondly, it recognizes an eye condition called Heterochromia. People who have this trait,  have two different colors of eyes. One eye may be brown, while the other is blue.  Famous people who have Heterochromia include David Bowie, Jane Seymour, and Christopher Walken.
Your eyes are an important part of your appearance. They are also important in communications. When you look into your lover's eyes, you need to like what you see. Making "eye contact" just wouldn't be the same without different colored eye. Isn't it great that we have a variety of eye colors to set us apart from one another?
Eye colors include:
  • Shades of brown
  • Shades of blue
  • Shades of green
  • Black
  • Grey
  • Hazel
