I completely forgot to acknowledge your anniversary a week ago. I did last year, but just now found it filed away with no flag to remind me again. But I hope it was a fun day for all.

As to you others, this was presented as a form of a history quiz...so here it is again.

Do you know what happened 162 years ago on May 26, 1850 ?





California became a state. The people had no electricity. The state had no money. Almost everyone spoke Spanish. There were gunfights in the streets.

So basically, nothing has changed except back then, the women had real boobs and men didn't hold hands.

That, my friends, is your history lesson for today...

I thought you were going to say that was the date Gov. Moonbeam was first elected governor.
