GOOD MORNING SPEAKIES,
Not much to report on today, I may add a few new funny book titles for you to enjoy. First, let's check out the real stuff for today.
NAME YOUR SELF DAY - I am very proud of my given name. If I had options or perhaps lived in a different time period here are a few names I would choose. In Roman times, I would have liked the name,"MARCUS ANTONIO GLORIOSUS." As a Spanish nobleman and protector of the poor, my chosen name would be "JUAN CASTILLO DELLA VEGA." Give me a mask, cape, sword and a fine Andalusian horse and I would carve the letter Z on all the evil I could find, great dreaming Joey Z.
TV GUIDE IS BORN - We celebrate the birthday of that great program finder the TV Guide, born this day in 1953. My parents did not own a TV set until the late 50's and then always purchased that guide to find the programs being broadcasted. I would sit there with each new weekly issue and study the shows, news articles that were published. Now I just zip through my remote and know what is coming on.
On a somber note this month we honor "HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE MONTH." Not only were the Jews, but many European nationalities were slaughtered in those death camps. Horrors like this will always be remembered by many. It is up to mankind today and always to make sure it never occurs again.
I was going to leave you with a few funny book titles, but I'll leave that up to the Zip to write about. So I bid you all a great day and leave you with this Charlie Chan saying, "CAT IS LIKE RICH MAN'S HEIR, NEVER DIES OUT OF SYMPATHY."
