What Had Happened Was...June 29th


Why yes, yes it is another blog on what was happening in History on June 29th. Ya'll ready for this? bomp, bomp, bomp…

Pope Benedict XVI announces the launch of a new Vatican website, news.va; he also performs the first tweet ever made by a pope

I wonder if he uses the #Jesustweeters tag? You think he does follow-backs?

"I know, right?"
PB's response to the ?
"Is it true you're on twitter?"


The General Assembly of Rhode Island passes legislation allowing same-sex couples to enter civil unions 

I was in Rhode Island in 2011. My husband married his cousin Ben. No one seemed to mind. (that never gets old) It was a lovely wedding, Ben and Julia!
 Also, did Pope B tweet about this? Not Ben and Julia's wedding...civil unions.


Emmy 16th Daytime Award presentation - Susan Lucci loses for 10th time

I have a photo of Lucci posted on my wall. She's the epitome of perseverance. Also if you believe I have a photo of Lucci, I have some swamp land in Texas I want to sell you. Gosh, I'll be embarrassed if there actually is swamp land in Texas.

There's not…is there?
"I borrowed this from Deidra Hall, sssh
give me my moment."


"Moonraker" premieres in U.S.

Please for the love tell me you know what this is? I'll give you a hint. He likes his martinis shaken…not stirred. Love me some James Bond. Connery. Moore. My two favs.
"Wow it's a jungle out here."
Oh, Bond, you are so observant.
Cue dreamy sigh.


"Tip-Toe Thru' The Tulips With Me" by Tiny Tim peaks at #17

Sounds like something a serial killer, dubbed Tiny Tim for the way he can squeeze through cracked windows and leave tulips at the crime scene, would say. Oh that's good! Dibs! You must click on this at least for a second, it only solidifies my serial killer idea. Not that the photo itself doesn't.







And there you have it, everyone! My husband's birthday is tomorrow but we'll be celebrating today so I might be thin on comments! Have a great weekend! Any big plans? Little plans? No plans? Share!

  6. Oohh...Tiny Tim...scary!

    Let's see, I work for a school district that shuts down the whole week of the 4th, so I am on vacation. Going to a funeral this afternoon, going to a wedding tomorrow, then relaxing the rest of the week. Not much going on. ;)

  7. My mom watched "All My Children" all growing up, so I think of her as Erica Caine. And when I read that you had a picture of her, I almost died. Like literally. Heart attack. Stopped breathing. The whole nine yards.

    Ha.

    And my plans? Well...they might just include a CRUISE! Yay! Will miss you,friend.

    1. OK, now I have to clarify. I knew you were joking about the picture when I read the swampland comment. That's why I'm still alive. I recovered when I read you were kidding. Hehe.

  9. Jessica - When my son was between 4 and 6, he went through a stage where he made up names for himself and expected to be called by them; Knuckle George, Henry Fossaf, Joe Russell...and Tiny Tim, among many others. No one could figure out where he came up with that name as we were not fans and it was the 90's so TT was not a radio hit...). But now that you suggest creepy serial killer squeezing through the cracks...Hm. Maybe it's time for therapy.

    Great stuff - enjoy your hubby's birthday!
