Ridley's Believe It Or Not For February 4, 2016 World Cancer Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For February 4, 2016, 351 days to go in President Obama’s pathetic lame duck term.
Interesting theater on the political front in Iowa as Hillary Clinton, dogged by the never ending email scandal
with the FBI hot on her heels and with the DNC protecting her back, eked out a very narrow win over Bernie
Sanders in Iowa and Cruz was alleged to have used dirty tricks against Doctor Ben Carson. As always, I hope  you enjoy Thursday’s holidays and observances, a music link to The Beatles, factoids of interest, a relevant quote by Edward Steiglitz, looking forward to enjoying a some stuffed mushrooms, blessed with a positive attitude and secure in the knowledge that if you want to find a gift for any  memorable events like birthdays, weddings, or anniversaries, you know that the Alaskanpoet can provide you with a unique customized poem  at a great price tailored to the event and the recipient.
