Historically this date...
1917 – The Congress of the United States passes theImmigration Act of 1917 over President Woodrow Wilson's veto. Also known as the Asiatic Barred Zone Act, it forbade immigration from nearly all of south and southeast Asia.
............click on the act title...interesting text in this ....
1918 – Stephen W. Thompson shoots down a German airplane. It is the first aerial victory by the U.S. military.
1958 – A hydrogen bomb known as the Tybee Bomb is lost by the US Air Force off the coast of Savannah, Georgia, never to be recovered.
..................hmmmmmmmmmm, wouldn't want to go diving down there!
And births this date include....
1848 – Belle Starr, American outlaw (d. 1889)
.........My God, what a life. Totally wild and out of control. Her son suspected in her murder, but never proven. Daughter was a trollop like her mother. Interesting read.
Remember when we saw him, Sandy? We were coming out of the parking garage at my dental surgeon's after my wisdom teeth were 'dug out' and John was walking down Sunset Blvd in front of us! No camera! Dang.
1908 – Daisy and Violet Hilton, British conjoined twins (d. 1969) ....here's another OMG. Poor things. 60 years conjoined and a very sad death.
I loved the movie Sayonara. He got an Oscar for his roll.
Later yesterday it was more of that awesome Veggie/Pork soup, chair, wine, TV! Recorded a few Hallmark movies and enjoyed watching them.
As for the Super Bowl halftime show, I will NOT watch it. I will change the channel. Lady (GAG) Gaga is one of those super liberal Hollywood lefties (BIG Hill-liary supporter!) and even being raised Catholic has claimed she believes God is "one's self"... self-worship. That is obvious! POS!
Totally totally weird!

All I know. Nuff said. GO PATRIOTS! Ciao.

National Weatherman's Day
^Our local KOBI Ch 5 Weatherman, Adam Colpack. A fav!
From back in the old days, my favorite weatherman in So. Cal was Dr. George Fischbeck from KABC 7 News:
National Weatherman's Day honors weathermen, and woman who work hard to accurately predict the often fickle weather. Despite major technological advances and supercomputers, forecasting the weather is still a tricky, and ever changing business.
Knowing the weather is important in so many ways. It affect how we dress, where we go, and even if we go. Space launches are made or delayed depending upon the weather. And, knowing the weather can save lives. The most obvious example is knowing when and where hurricanes or tornados may hit.
According to the Air Force News, Weatherman's Day "commemorates the birth of John Jeffries, one of America's first weathermen". Jeffries was born on Feb 5, 1744. He kept weather records from 1774 to 1816.
