Pip’s notes- I hear it’s nice there, though the people might be questionable.
- 1829 – Accordion patent granted to Cyrill Demian in Vienna, Austrian Empire.

bands like ‘the talking heads’, Rolling Stones’, and Dropkick Murphy’ are up top.

- 1934 – American bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde are ambushed by police
and killed in Bienville Parish, Louisiana.

- 1992 – Italy’s most prominent anti-mafia judge Giovanni Falcone, his wife and
three body guards are killed by the Corleonesi clan with a half-ton bomb near Capaci, Sicily.
Pip’s notes – I went down this rabbit hole…. 881 lbs of explosives used
to take this dude out. Damn…
- 1995 – The first version of the Java programming language was released.
Pip’s notes- I was thinking of a different Java (sips coffee)

while trying to read the name. (attempted humor)
- World Turtle Day
Held every May 23rd, It began in 2000 and is sponsored by American Tortoise Rescue.
Pip’s notes- I assume most of us get 12 packs and not 6 packs with the plastic beer holder,
so we shouldn’t need to remind ourselves to cut up the plastic holders.
Pip’s side notes- I did a search for when was Shredder day, nothing found.
Heroes in a Half-shell Turtle Power!
(try to get that out of your head now)
