Thanksgiving 2003: President Bush made a surprise visit to Iraq






Back in 2003, President Trump showed up in Iraq for Thanksgiving.   It was a great story and must have been quite a treat for the soldiers enjoying some turkey.

For security reasons, the President's trip was such a secret that even First Lady Laura Bush, and his parents, were not told about it.    The announced plan was a trip to Crawford, Texas, but Air Force One turned east to Iraq.

A few years later, President Bush wrote about Iraq in a great book.

Happy birthday to 'The Gipper' and 'The Babe'

Image result for happy birthday images"
All of my conservative friends are flooding social media with birthday wishes for the late President Reagan who was born on this day in 1911 in Tampico, Illinois.    

To this day, President Reagan ranks high as one of the most popular presidents of the last 50 years. We remember him as a leader, a man who stood up to the USSR, defended the US and the kind of figure that you were proud to see on stage as the US president.   In fact, 2011 Gallup ranked him as our greatest president

Greater than Lincoln and Washington?  Not so fast but it is evidence that a lot of us remember him as a successful president, a man who made us feel good about the country.

We also remember that Babe Ruth was born in Baltimore, Maryland on this day in 1895.  

Like Reagan, Ruth came along at an opportune time. 

Baseball was in deep trouble after the White Sox scandal and fans soured on the game. The "Black Sox" scandal was a complicated story but the Commissioner had no choice but to ban the players.  The biggest tragedy of the commissioner's decision is that we never got to see "Shoeless" Jackson play a full career in the majors.

Ruth put fans in the seats, made baseball fun and became a legendary American hero. 

What was God telling us by making this day a birthday for two such dynamic individuals?  I think that he was saying that our leaders come from humble homes and unexpected places like Tampico, Illinois and the rough streets of Baltimore, Maryland.

Many of us remember Stack for the role of  Eliot Ness on the wildly popular television series, "The Untouchables "(1959).   

He died in 2003.

We remember Maurice Gibb (1949-2003)


Maurice Gibb of The Bee Gees died on this day in 2003.  It was a sudden death unlike Robin who battled cancer for over a year.  The news flash was a shock to say the least.

Maurice was known as the "Man in the middle".  He did not do a lot of lead vocals.  His contributions were the indispensable 3rd voice in the group's harmonies and arranging their hit songs.  He played bass, guitar, piano and organ.

We remember "It's just the way", one of Maurice Gibb's best lead vocals & "Toast and marmalade for tea", a song that Maurice produced for Tin Tin.

This is a great CD box set that covers four decades of hits and songwriting.
