July 19, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not National Flight Attendant Safety Professionals' Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For July 19, 2016. Unfortunately still 185 days to go in President Obama’s pathetic lame duck term and 228 days since hiding Hillary has held a formal press conference; the RNC opened on Monday with a raucous floor fight that the “Never Trump” movement lost; killer speech by Melania Trump (the only thing the Blues can do is sputter that she borrowed lines from Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech but Melania Trump will never say that with Donald’s nomination it will be the first time that this legal immigrant is proud to be an American) http://alaskanpoet.blogspot.com/2016/07/bimbo-express-for-air-force-one-or.html; great impassioned speeches by Pat Smith (as a mom she was on point as Hillary should be wearing stripes), two Benghazi heroes, and Rudy Giuliani; on a tragic and ironic note, an impromptu “Stop the Violence”  rally of 300 at a Cleveland lakeside park a 19 year old black male was shot and killed and a 12 year old wounded with shooter still at large; since she has no record to run on, Hillary called Trump unfit to be president and the most dangerous and reckless man ever to run for the office (brace yourself for a remake of the anti Goldwater ad of the little girl picking petals from a daisy only to be obliterated by an atomic bomb detonation); another radical Islamist attack by axe and knife in Europe by an Afghan teen inspired by ISIS on a German train before being shot and killed by police (do we feel safe with Obama and Clinton both calling for the acceptance of hundreds of thousands of refugees from the Middle East?) http://alaskanpoet.blogspot.com/2016/07/islamist-axes-and-knives-20-plus-on.html; Erdogan continues to arrest 1,000’s while calling for restoration of the death penalty and to purge teachers, military, judges, and media workers suspected of having ties to the coup or opposing him.

1. Flight Attendant Safety Professionals’ Day—first observed by presidential proclamation to honor the contribution of the men and women in the cabin of an airliner to insure passenger safety—too bad they are powerless over the lack of food, the carryon baggage charges, high fares or the lack of leg room.  
2. National Flitch Day—an old English custom that rewarded a couple that did not repent their marriage for a year and a day with a flitch (slab) of bacon (great concept in divorce plagued states like California as a motivator for fidelity unless of course the couple are vegetarians).                      
3. 1947 Number One Song—celebrating the number one song in 1947 on a run of 4 weeks in that position “Peg O’ My Heart” by the Harmonicats. Here is a link to the Harmonicats performing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BIuX7IsdE8 Check out the size of the harmonicas used.
