September 15, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Free Money Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For September 15, 2016 Only 55 waning days to go until the only polls that matter close for Trump to continue his pivot before we elect a new president; as Trump’s poll numbers are surging, health records released for both candidates with doctors claiming their patients are fit to be president; Powell’s hacked emails slammed HRC, Bill (still doing Bimbos at home) and Trump while Powell and Flynn are in a Blue on Blue snit spat; IRS Commissioner Koskinen dodged an impeachment vote on the floor as the matter was referred to the House Judiciary Committee; in another typical bias slant, CNN reporter Christiane Amanpour claimed the media concern over Hillary’s health was sexist (huh after millions saw a video of her collapsing after the campaign concealed the fact she has pneumonia); in yet another example of growing tensions between refugees and Germans, a brawl occurred between far right groups and asylum seekers near Dresden; two more Gitmo detainees released have returned to the battlefield; in yet another example of blatant political corruption the DHS is refusing to release reports showing its failure to apprehend and deport illegal aliens and instead using false figures in order to help Clinton; another killing of a 13 year black by a white cop (what kind of parent allows their child to have a BB gun that is indistinguishable from a real gun); finally the Show Me State, Missouri will now allow its citizens to carry concealed weapons without a permit.
          As Trump is trying to become more presidential, going to is a great way to start your day along of course and reading Clinton Cash would be a great read to understand the quid pro quo mentality of the Clintons.
          As always, I hope  you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, a music link to Tommy Dorsey with Frank Sinatra doing the vocals,  factoids of interest for this day in history, a relevant quote from Agatha Christie, while  looking forward to enjoying a plate of linguine, 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.

1. Free Money Day—celebrated 2011, on the anniversary the anniversary of the bankruptcy filing of Lehman Brothers on this day in 2008; to observer the day hand a stranger two bills or coins and ask him or her to keep one and pass the other to another stranger.
2. World Lymphoma Awareness Daycreating since 2004 awareness of and raising funds for lymphoma which is a cancer that strikes around a thousand new cases a day.             
3. 1940 Number One Song—celebrating, since I am rapped out and hip hopped out, the number one song in 1940 on a long run of twelve in that position “I Will Never Smile Again” by Tommy Dorsey & His Orchestra. Here is a recording of Tommy Dorsey & His Orchestra with a very young Frank Sinatra performing the song.
4. National Linguine Day—celebrating not bratwurst (start of German-American Heritage Month) or burritos (start of Mexican-American Heritage Month) but this highly evolved omnivore’s favorite pasta especially when served with clams in a white sauce with appropriate amount of garlic.
5. It’s No Mysterycelebrating the birth on this day in 1890 of Agatha Christie, one very prolific mystery novelist whose 66 detective books and 6 romances sold billions of copies; she continue to write almost up to her death in 1976.  
On this day in:                                                                                   
a. 1835 the HMS Beagle with Charles Darwin aboard reaches the Galapagos Islands.
b. 1935 in a chilling portent of what was to come the Nuremburg Laws depriving Jewish residents their German citizenship were passed.
c. 1950 in perhaps one of the most daring military maneuvers of all time, under the command of General MacArthur, U.S. forces land at Inchon, Korea.    
d. 1978 Muhammad Ali won a rematch with Leon Spinks to become the first person in boxing history to win the heavyweight title three times.  
e. 1981 the John Bull first put into service on this day in 1831 became the oldest steam operated locomotive in the world when the Smithsonian Institution operated it under its own power outside of Washington, D.C.  
Reflections on why archeologists make great husbands: “An archaeologist is the best husband a woman can have. The older she gets the more interested he is in her.” Agatha Christies whose second husband for 46 years was an archeologist. Please enjoy the poems on events of interest on my twitter account below (if you like them, retweet and follow me) and follow my blogs.
