History Day......



History Day is back! And to kick us off, we have Amelia Earhart--in 1935, she became the first person to fly solo from Hawaii to California--2 years later, she would disappear. I really want to know what happened to her.

1770, the first Rhubarb was sent to the US. Benjamin Franklin was the culprit.

1878, For the first time, milk was delivered in glass bottles by Alexander Campbell in New York.

1913, the first sedan type car was unvelied at the National Auto show in NYC, courtesy of the Hudson Company.

1963 Whiskey a Go Go opened tonight on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood!

1984, Thriller, by Michael Jackson, became the all time best selling album with ten million copies sold. And I think I still know all the dance moves!!

What've you guys got?

    I want to know what happened to Amelia too! It drives me nuts. I'm not quite like a dog that obsessive chases its tail over it, but I swear I'm getting there ;)

    Hmmm....rhubarb. Can't say I'm a big fan. I guess Amelia will always remain a mystery. Just like all that weird stuff that took place in the Bermuda Triangle.

    I will not acquiesce in on it. I think polite post. Specially the designation attracted me to study the intact story.
