Cell Phone Courtesy Month

“Cell phones were invented to make our lives easier, not more annoying”

We couldn’t let the month pass without bringing attention to a very important cause – Cell Phone Courtesy – because L-rd knows there sure is a lack of courtesy from cell phone users throughout this country!

Visit the Sprint website for these cell phone courtesy suggestions .

Cousin’s Day
A day for celebrating our cousins! I know I’m showing my age now but what better way to celebrate the day than a little clip of TVs ultimate cousins!

Meet Cathy, who’s lived most everywhere,
From Zanzibar to Barclay Square.
But Patty’s only seen the sights
A girl can see from Brooklyn Heights —
What a crazy pair!

But they’re cousins,
Identical cousins all the way.
One pair of matching bookends,
Different as night and day.

Where Cathy adores a minuet,
The Ballet Russes, and crepe suzette,
Our Patty loves to rock and roll,
A hot dog makes her lose control —
What a wild duet!

Still, they’re cousins,
Identical cousins and you’ll find,
They laugh alike, they walk alike,
At times they even talk alike —
You can lose your mind,
When cousins are two of a kind.

Moon Day

Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed

Celebrating the first human landing on the moon by the crew of Apollo 11.

Led by commander Neil Armstrong, lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin and command module pilot Michael Collins, Apollo 11 blasted off from Earth on July 16, 1969. Armstrong and Aldrin landed on the moon on July 20, while Collins circled above in lunar orbit. On the following day, July 21, Armstrong became the first human to walk on the moon. Buzz Aldrin followed shortly becoming the 2nd human to walk on the moon.

The video above features President John F. Kennedy making his historic call for American spaceflight followed by Neil Armstrong’s first walk on the moon.
