Today in January 15th and it is another beautiful day. Spent yesterday working on my battery bank on the RV, four house batteries and two engine batteries. But it was a great day to be outside. That was yesterday and today is the 15th, and since I don't have anything outstanding to write about, I thought I would check and see what happened on this day through out recent history.
Let's see, oh yes for you football fans, this day in 1967 the first Super Bowl was played in Los Angeles between the Green Bay Packers and the Kansas City Chiefs. The Packers won.
In 1970 Muammar al-Qaddifi became Premier of Libya. He had removed King Idris from office the year before.
On this day in 1973, Bonanza aired for the last time. It had been on for fourteen seasons and it was the first western to be seen in color.
Also in 1973, the Vietnam bombing ended.
Remember the cop drama, Hill Street Blues? Well back in 1981 it aired for the first time. . . yes, on this date.
On this date in 2008, the FDA approved meat from cloned animals stating that it was safe for human consumption.
I am sure we all remember flight 1549 crashing into the Hudson River in 2009. To refresh your memory, here is a picture:
In 2010, a 7.0 earthquake hits Haiti killing 45,000 to 50,000 people!
And just last year, horse meat was found in "beef" burgers sold in Ireland and the United Kingdom.
By now, you probably have had enough January 15th trivia to last you until next January, right? So I will quit before I completely ruin your day. I do want you all to have a great day, you hear?
