The First President is inaugurated

on this day in 1836?  Yes but it wasn’t George Washington. 

Also, he was notorious for both his looks and his bad behavior and he came to a messy end on this day in 1934

Monday, October 22nd, the 296th day of 2012






Today is National Nut Day, either eat one or be one, your choice.






1836: Sam Houston was inaugurated as the first constitutionally elected president of the Republic of Texas.

1964: EMI Records turned down a chance to sign the group High Numbers. So they changed their name back to what they had used earlier and signed with Decca.  Who were they?  Yes, they were – and are “The Who.”
