Thoughts of the day

Today is Thursday, March 23rd. Since I don’t know if today is
designated as a National Day of Something or Other here are a
few things that happened on this date.

On this date in 1983, then President Ronald Reagan, made his
proposal to develop technology to intercept enemy missiles. It
was called the Strategic Defense Initiative.

This date in 1994 a United States Air Force F-16 collided with
a USAF C-130 at Pope Air Force Base then crashed. 24 U.S. Army
soldiers on the ground were killed in what became known as the
Green Ramp disaster.

A few people celebrating a birthday today include Rex Tilerson
(1952), Moses Malone (1955), Hope Davis (1964), Brandon
Marshall (1984).

Who died on this date you ask? Peter Lorre (1964), David B.
Bleak (2006), Joe Weider (2013), and Ken Howard (2016) to name
a few.

And, after some very intense research we can confirm that
today is National Puppy Day, National Chip And Dip Day,
National Chia Day, National Near Miss Day and National Melba
Toast Day.

There is a lot more that happened today but we thought of
sharing just a few things that we found interesting. Have a
great Thursday.
Comments are always welcome.

    I like those clouds. I remember Peter Lorre, as a kid we used to see him in the movies with other greats, like Vincent Price.

    Ron Walker,
    thank you. It’s an older picture but reminded me of today. Peter Lorre had those strange eyes that seemed to look right through you.
