The HL Hunley became the first submarine to sink an enemy vessel in combat.

FWIW, I share a birthday with Larry the Cable Guy and Paris Hilton.

It's good for the soul when there's not a soul in sight.

Cool link Tattratt,
Eggs were 57 cents and Willard Frank Libby won the nobel prize in chemistry.
The Apartment won the Oscar for best picture. (I've never seen it but am now curious.) Everybodys Somebodys Fool by Connie Francis was the number one song in the USA.

Well, according to a topic here, 17 years prior to the day prior to my birthday music died when Buddy Holly died. As for the link . . . . .

This is also a date many would like to forget. This date, in 1913, the 16th amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified. This gave Congress the authority to collect income tax.

In 1961, Bob Dylan made his first recording, taping "San Fransisco Bay Blues" in NY.

Eggs weren't mentioned in mine. Perhaps they were ridiculously low or embarrassingy high.

My year seems a bit mundane. Although I've seen and sat in many of those goofy-looking chairs.

In the USA:
"You Keep Me Hangin' On"
by The Supremes

In the UK:
"Good Vibrations"
by The Beach Boys

and eggs were 60 cents.

.........and it was Thanksgiving, so everyone wasn't bothering to do anything that day, besides eat.

I'm feeling old, btw, I remember ice skating to TATTRAT'S "Night Fever" and wishing I was like bIGDOG'S Dorothy Hamill.

it won't let me select yesterday.

The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"
