Wind & Rain ~ Gibson's Homer ~ World's Oldest Dog ~ Loafers & Man Cooking ~ Jelly Bean Day


Good 46º cloudy morning. Wind got to howling last evening and then the rain came. We only got about 1/10". More expected today....


 
 
Here is a super short video of the 4th inning Dodgers vs A's game when Kirk Gibson hit the home run....

This is indeed interesting... World's oldest dog dies...

 
Yesterday I went into Grants Pass. Stopped to drop off some stuff to Jennifer at the Kitchen Company ...

Then to Brian's office to give him some things....
Then to Safeway for groceries...
 


When I got home Mike was here doing some weed-eating and leaf blowing. He'll be back when the weather is better and do some mowing, as it looks like rain on and off til the middle of next week.
 
Here are two funny things...



 
Historically this date...
1945 – World War II: Führerbunker: After learning that Soviet forces have takenEberswalde without a fight, Adolf Hitler admits defeat in his underground bunker and states that suicide is his only recourse.

.......too bad he wasn't caught and put in an oven to die! JUSTICE.

2000 – In a pre-dawn raid, federal agents seize six-year-old Elián González from his relatives' home in Miami, Florida.

Commentators have suggested that the Elián González affair may have been a factor in voters' decisions in the 2000 United States presidential election, which could have affected the close outcome in Florida. Al Gore's handling of the matter may have been as great a factor as anger by the predominantly Republican Cuban community over the boy's return to Cuba. Gore initially supported Republican legislation to give the boy and his father permanent residence status, but later supported the Administration position. He was attacked by both for pandering and being inconsistent.

2008 – The United States Air Force retires the remaining F-117 Nighthawk aircraft in service.
 

 

And births this date include....
1906 – Eddie Albert, American actor (d. 2005)

April 22nd
Earth Day    and...
National Jelly Bean Day

 
National Jelly Bean Day is a time to enjoy gobs and gobs of jelly beans. Anyone who loves jelly beans, knows they are not just for Easter. Sure, they are very popular at Easter. But, they are also enjoyed year round. The flavors are limited only by the imagination of candy makers. If you've never enjoyed the multitude of flavors in a box of gourmet jelly beans, the we suggest you head right out to the store and buy some.
 
Jelly beans date back to at least the 1860's. Advertisements promoted sending jelly beans to Union troops fighting in the Civil War. The original candy maker is unknown.
 
In my kitchen I kept a jar with Jelly Bellies in it. When I babysat our little Alex she would always ask for some. She loved them. That is what I nicknamed her.. hence the email JellyBeansBobo !
