WELCOME to WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 8, 2023
Here’s The Story…..
Most people don’t know that back in 1912 Hellman’s mayonnaise was manufactured
in England. In fact, the “Titanic” was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled
for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after New York City.
Mexicans were crazy about the stuff. The Mexican people were eagerly awaiting delivery
and were disconsolate(“desperados”) at the loss. So much so that they declared a
national day of mourning which they still observe today.
It is known, of course, as …Sinko de Mayo. 😳😳😳
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY people, stay safe, and
whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you
gotta put up with the rain.” —Dolly Parton
“Do all the good you can, for all the people you can,
in all the ways you can, as long as you can.” — Hillary Clinton
“Don’t settle for what life gives you; make life better
and build something.” — Ashton Kutcher
“Everybody wants to be famous, but nobody wants to do the work.
I live by that. You grind hard so you can play hard. At the end of the
day, you put all the work in, and eventually it’ll pay off. It could be
in a year, it could be in 30 years. Eventually, your hard work will pay off.” — Kevin Hart
Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
He was a mediocre conductor of a mediocre orchestra. He had been having
problems with the basses; they were the least professional of his musicians.
It was the last performance of the season, Beethoven痴 9th Symphony, which
required extra effort from the basses at the end. Earlier that evening, he found
the basses celebrating one of their birthdays by passing a bottle around. As he
was about to cue the basses, he knocked over his music stand. The sheet music
scattered. As he stood in front of his orchestra, his worst fear was realized; it
was the bottom of the 9th, no score and the basses were loaded. 😳😳😳
Tuesday’s’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“The MATRIX will be with you, always.”
Answer: Star Wars” trilogy
In the original “Star Wars” trilogy, “May the Force be with you” is a customary goodbye phrase among the Rebel Alliance. Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and, after his death, his spiritual form use the more encouraging and definite variant in “A New Hope” several times, to reassure the young Luke Skywalker in the moments of greatest doubt, including the crucial final scene where his starfighter approaches the weak spot of the Death Star for a final chance at victory.
