Ridley's Believe It Or Not November 27, 2022


Hope you had time to shop at some small businesses yesterday and if a member of the dwindling number of Stanford football fans are celebrating Coach Shaw’s taking the high road and resigning after the loss to BYU last night. Stanford alums are hoping there  is a great coach brave enough or dumb enough to take the job and fight the Dean of Admissions to recruit and enroll A+ student athletes. Please enjoy today’s Ridley's Believe It Or Not. Hope you find them informative and worthy of your time to read. If not, please reply “Unsubscribe” and I will delete you from the mailing list.

National Holiday
: Small Brewery Sunday: Created by American Brewery Association on November 18, 2019 to promote the numerous craft/micro breweries that have sprung up across the nation putting beer connoisseurs into 7th Heaven to dismay of the tasteless giants like Budweiser and Miller. Easy day to celebrate by going to a brew pub and sampling their libations.
          Word of the Day: The word of the day is “abessive” which means an absence or lack which describes Stanford’s wins to a tee.
          Number 1 Song of the Day: The number 1 song in 2020 was “Mood” by  24 Goldn feat. Iann Diors on a run of 4 weeks non continuous to share with 24 other acts recording number 1 hits, 12 of whom including 24 Goldn feat. Iann Diors achieved their first number 1.  Here is a recording of 24 Goldn feat. Iann Diors performing “Mood”:
          Famous Birthdays: Bill Nye, born on this day in 1955, noted TV host and comedian, best known for his 5 year program Bill Nye, The Science Guy from 1993 to 1998 and marrying musician Blair Tindall in 2006 only to end the marriage after 7 weeks after learning their marriage license was invalid.

             Quote of the Day: Albert Nobel on the prospects for peace: “ I intend to leave after my death a large fund for the promotion of the peace idea, but I am skeptical as to its results.” Sadly Nobel was very prescient in terms of the forces of war pushing aside the prospects of peace
