Its Tuesday after a holiday weekend and you might be a little groggy, pour some GSD Blend in your cup and wake up. Today I finally talk about the gathering we had across the street, I admit I can’t see a lot of colors and a few other odds and ends. Leading off with The Perfect Cup question “What is the biggest lie you once believed was true?” followed up by LOTS of History prepared by Pip over at Ducktioncups.com.

LOTS of History
Happy Post Monday, humans & heres some Wiki nugs for LOTS of history for ya.
- 1431 – Hundred Years’ War: In Rouen, France, the 19-year-old Joan of Arc is burned at the stake by an English-dominated tribunal.
Pip’s notes- as famous as ‘Joan of Arc, I didn’t expect she was only 19. Life is weird.
- 1539 – In Florida, Hernando de Soto lands at Tampa Bay with 600 soldiers with the goal of finding gold.
Pip’s notes- this concludes the history segment, I’m heading to the back yard for prospecting for gold.
- 1842 – John Francis attempts to murder Queen Victoria as she drives down Constitution Hill in London with Prince Albert.
- 1883 – In New York City, a stampede on the recently opened Brooklyn Bridge killed twelve people.
Pip’s notes- I’ll just leave this quote here…
“It’s never too early to start beefing up your obituary.”
- 1942 – World War II: One thousand British bombers launch a 90-minute attack on Cologne, Germany.
Pip’s notes- looking ag the rubble.. Get out of the cities?
fak… the pics look like a dog just knocked over a Lincoln Log city…d
- 1948 – A dike along the flooding Columbia River breaks, obliterating Vanport, Oregon within minutes. Fifteen people die and tens of thousands are left homeless.
Pip’s notes- well frak.
- 1874 – Ernest Duchesne, French physician (d. 1912)
A French physician who noted that certain molds kill bacteria. He made this discovery 32 years before Alexander Fleming discovered the antibiotic properties of penicillin, a substance derived from those molds, but his research went unnoticed.
- 1944 – Meredith MacRae, American actress (d. 2000)
She is most remembered for her roles as Sally Morrison on My Three Sons (1963–1965) and as Billie Jo Bradley on Petticoat Junction (1966–1970).
- 1912 – Wilbur Wright, American pilot and businessman, co-founded the Wright Company (b. 1867)
Pip’s notes- how does one say ‘godspeed’ to a dude who altered the world with flight?…
Holidays – nothing to note,
