    On July 20, 1969, Buzz Aldrin became the second man to set foot on the Moon, following mission commander Neil Armstrong. That historic moment was over 40 years ago. Today, Aldrin is celebrating another milestone, his 80th birthday. Although the famous Apollo 11 mission was over four decades ago when NASA was in its infancy, Buzz continues to be very vocal in matters of human spaceflight. He is an outspoken critic of spaceflight policy and an expert in communicating all things space to the public.

    WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama has treated first lady Michelle Obama to a surprise birthday party at a tony Washington restaurant known for its commitment to organically grown food. Surprising the birthday girl Saturday night at Restaurant Nora in Washington's Dupont Circle neighborhood were her mother Marian Robinson and friends, including Attorney General Eric Holder, White House Adviser Valerie Jarrett and Jocelyn Frye, who is a domestic policy adviser to both the president and first lady. Mrs. Obama walked into the restaurant in a dark, knee-length frock. President Obama was dressed casually with no tie. Michelle Obama will turn 46...

    Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and Roll would have been 75 years old today. A gyrating young truck driver, who blended “Hillbilly” and “Blues” turned the world of music upside down when he burst onto the national scene in 1956. Music would never be the same. America would never be the same. The world would never be the same.

  • December 25 and the Origin of Christmas (Was Jesus born on the day we celebrate His birthday?)

    Dakota Voice ^ | 12/25/2009 | Bob Ellis
    Ever since I grew old enough to begin the complicated process of starting to separate the myths we are often fed as children from the truth, I’ve been told that the long-held date of December 25 to celebrate the birth of Christ, Christmas, isn’t really the date upon which Christ was born as a human baby. I’ve heard the stories that December 25 was just a pagan holiday that Christians “took over” once the Christian religion gained ascendancy in the Roman Empire. I’ve heard that due to the wintery time of year and the shepherds out in the field in...

The Kitsap Sun reports about 12:15 a.m. a witness said the man approached him and started a conversation. The man said he was in the Marines, while the witness replied he was in the Navy.

  • Happy 70th, Grace Slick!

    A popular saying among those who considered themselves part of the '60s counterculture went something like, "Never trust anyone over 30." In that context, it's interesting that quite a few of that era's iconic figures celebrated the applicable birthday before the calendar turned to 1970. One of them was Grace Slick, who rose to fame singing two hit singles by the San Francisco band Jefferson Airplane, "Somebody to Love" and "White Rabbit." She turned 30 on Oct. 30, 1969, which of course makes her 70 today

    London Times ^ | October 28th 2009
    October 28, 2009 Happy 40th Birthday To The Internet What a busy old year 1969 was. When man wasn't landing on the moon, the Beatles were performing their last concert together, Led Zeppelin were releasing Led Zeppelin I and the Rolling Stones were playing Altamont. Say no more. Meanwhile, on October 29, the first Arpanet network connection between remote computers was established. Arpanet was the military precursor to what we now know as the internet (the term "internetting" would not be coined until 1977). Anyway, at 10.30pm precisely, the first message was sent over the Arpanet between the University of...

    Yes, it's "Happy Birthday, Hillary"! The Secretary of State turns 62 today... I wonder how she is celebrating the big event... Which Soviet Block dictator is she kow-towing to today? What lie or lies is she trying to peddle on behalf of the Obama Administration today? Yes, the great leader who was named after Sir Edmund Hillary (who first climbed Mt. Everest some 7 years AFTER Hillary was born) became famous, continues to serve us all in her capacity of Secretary of State -- and make no mistake: SHE's Secretary of State, not Bill!!!!! Let's all wish her "Happy Birthday",...
