And in 1964 California officially became the most populated state in America.
Quote of the Day
“People come out to see the players. When do you see a manager anyway? When he’s out on the field arguing with the umpires, making a fool of himself and you know you can’t win, and when he brings out the line-up card.”
Jerry Allison’s birthday is today. He was one of the Crickets.
It’s also Jeff Russo’s.
And Rudolph Schenker’s, so this one is loud.
Who has a request or praise to share?
¹The king shall have joy in Your strength, O Lord; And in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
2 You have given him his heart’s desire, And have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah
3 For You meet him with the blessings of goodness; You set a crown of pure gold upon his head.
4 He asked life from You, and You gave it to him— Length of days forever and ever.
5 His glory is great in Your salvation; Honor and majesty You have placed upon him.
6 For You have made him most blessed forever; You have made him exceedingly glad with Your presence.
7 For the king trusts in the Lord, And through the mercy of the Most High he shall not be moved.
8 Your hand will find all Your enemies; Your right hand will find those who hate You.
9 You shall make them as a fiery oven in the time of Your anger; The Lord shall swallow them up in His wrath, And the fire shall devour them.
10 Their offspring You shall destroy from the earth, And their descendants from among the sons of men.
11 For they intended evil against You; They devised a plot which they are not able to perform.
12 Therefore You will make them turn their back; You will make ready Your arrows on Your string toward their faces.
13 Be exalted, O Lord, in Your own strength! We will sing and praise Your power.
It’s Saturday, so time for…..
What’s interesting in the news today?
Here’s a few to start off.
First, something to keep in mind.
The President’s approval is dropping.
Yet another reason to not send kids to public school.
Of course they will. Can you guess which family type will get the most attention?
Say it with me now….. Most transparent administration evah!
And lastly, this one. She’s always been an activist judge, so this isn’t exactly shocking.
Yay, it’s Friday! 🙂

Quote of the Day
“Fashion is in a terrible state. An overdose of too much flesh.”
Samuel Albert Bozeman, Jr. (Geoffrey Beene)
On this date in 1991 Dottie West was injured in a car accident while on her way to a performance at the Grand Ole Opry. She died during surgery 5 days later. 😦
Today is John Phillips’ birthday. We sang this in middle school chorus because it was a favorite of my hippie music teacher. 🙂
And it’s also Mick Moody’s birthday. Whitesnake is a bit loud, so solo it is.
Anyone have a QoD for us?
Who has a request or praise to share today?
1 May the Lord answer you when you are in distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
2 May he send you help from the sanctuary and grant you support from Zion.
3 May he remember all your sacrifices and accept your burnt offerings.
4 May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.
5 May we shout for joy over your victory and lift up our banners in the name of our God.
May the Lord grant all your requests.
6 Now this I know: The Lord gives victory to his anointed. He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary with the victorious power of his right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. 8 They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.
9 Lord, give victory to the king! Answer us when we call!
