Favorite Song ~ Glooooom ~ NFL Sunday ~ Snow on Field ~ Tom Brady ~ Colon ~ Statue from Jerry ~ Bad Noodle Bowl ~ Repeal Day

Good 35ยบ foggy cloudy glooooooomy morning, again! Sigh.....

Happy Monday.

I was sitting in my chair, playing solitaire on my iPad, and listening to music on the TV and I heard one of my favorite songs...
Now, it says the song is sung by Gene Autry, but, NO, it's Perry Como! Someone doesn't know s**t about vocalists.

Yesterday I messed with paperwork, my checking account, and a couple more bills. It stayed so cold and gloomy....No reason to go out.

So I sat in my comfy chair, drank wine, and watched football!

Yesterday's NFL games:

Boy howdy, the Packers were playing in some rough weather against Texas!

To top all that off, my Tom Brady after yesterday's game became the winningest 
quarterback in NFL history with 201 career wins! GO TOMMY!!!! YEAH!!!

December 5th

Repeal Day is today. It commemorates the repeal of the 18th Amendment.  Once more, Americans were free to buy, sell, and consume alcoholic beverages. I'll drink to that!
In the early 1900's, many of the good people of America believed that alcohol was the root cause of many social ills in the country. Prohibition on a national scale, was promoted in part by the American Christian Women's Temperance Union. This movement grew in popularity. Ultimately, the United States Congress passed the 18th amendment on January 16, 1919. The 16th Amendment prohibited the manufacture, transportation, sale and consumption of alcohol.  
The ban on alcohol did little to improve the social conditions of the country, or to reduce crime. Rather, crime increased as racketeers got into the the business of making and selling alcohol.  The popularity of the 18th Amendment waned. More and more people and groups sought it's repeal.  
Congress passed the 21st Amendment, effectively repealing the 18th Amendment. On December 5, 1933, the State of Utah voted it's approval of the 21st Amendment, achieving the 3/4 of states need to approve this amendment. Thus on this day, the 18th Amendment was formally repealed.
I think I'll have a Dirty Sue martini tonight!!
