Fact of the day.

For the first 15 or 20 years after the Declaration was written, people didn’t celebrate it much on any date. It was too new and too much else was happening in the young nation.

But the other party, the Federalists, thought the Declaration was too French and too anti-British, which went against their current policies.
By 1817, John Adams complained in a letter that America seemed uninterested in its past. But that would soon change.

Oldest American War Vet Turns 109!

Richard Overton turned 109 on Monday, May 11, 2015. This makes him America’s oldest surviving World War II veteran.

I recently had the honor of visiting with Richard at his home in Austin, Texas. He credits his health and longevity to smoking cigars, drinking whiskey and being able to defend himself and his country with firearms.

He’s hung out with everyone from the president to senators to celebrities.

Happy birthday Richard and God bless you from all of us living in the free world.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hey C-A! The Ecommerce class would like to wish you a great St. Patrick’s day!! Here’s a little bit of background on St. Patrick’s Day. St Patrick’s Day is celebrated in many parts of the world, especially by Irish communities. Many people wear green clothes on St. Patrick’s Day because that and the shamrock were a symbol of Irish independence. St Patrick is one of the patron saints of Ireland.

Fact of the day

These days, St. Patrick's Day celebrations don't have much to do with the man for which the holiday is named. Nonetheless, he is an important figure in Irish Catholic history.

According to folklore, St. Patrick was kidnapped and brought to Ireland at 16, but he escaped and was reunited with his family in Britain at the encouragement of a voice he heard in his dreams, which later told him to go to Ireland. St. Patrick became a …

Fun Fact

As a little kid, Bob had a knack for deeply spooking people by successfully predicting their futures by reading their palms. At seven, having just returned to his rural village after a year spent living in the ghettos of Kingston (Jamaica’s capital), he declared that from then on he would cease to read palms. His new destiny, he said, was to become a singer. For the rest of his life, whenever someone who knew him back when asked him to read their palms, he resolutely refused.
