Good Morning February 12th 2018,
Today in 1924 George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue premiers in Aeolian, Hall New York. The show's titled "An Experiment in Modern Music" and features Paul Whiteman and his band, with Gershwin on the piano.
Today in 1947 in Sikhote-Alin Soviet Union, 10:30 a.m. A giant iron meteorite explodes into the atmosphere creating a light brighter than the sun, leaving an elliptical half mile area on the ground, covered by impact craters as large as 85' across, and 20' in depth.
Sikhote-Alin is the only place in the world where one can observe, brown bear, tiger's, leopards, reindeer, and a few wolves (due to the tigers) all in one place.
It's the birthday of Japanese Shogun, Kujo Yoritsuni (1218) who asked and received permission from the emperor of Japan to abdicate his duties as Shogun, and soon after shaved his head and became a Buddhist priest.
Been trucking since 96. My main interest is having a good healthy life.
