“You load sixteen tons, what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt. Saint Peter, don’t you call me, ’cause I can’t go; I owe my soul to the company store.” –lyrics from the song “Sixteen Tons“-
Well, I don’t owe my soul to the company store no more. No more. I am free. After 15 frantic years, free to taste the sweetness of living without datelines! Free to starve to death from unemployment! How exciting!
But sadly, it’s a case of another year older and deeper in debt. Yup, it’s that day in the year that another candle is placed on the already straining cake.
Please forgive me if I choose to do something other than slaving over a proper post on this day especially if that something involves my wife and a restaurant.
So, I just quickly cobbled the following pseudo-post;
…..is National Peanut Day;
…..is National Celiac Awareness Day and
…..is Scooby Doo‘s Birthday.
Some other things which I like which happened on Sept. 13th……
1609 – Henry Hudson discovers Hudson River (love explorers)
1759 – Wolfe (British) defeats Montcalm (French) at the Battle of the Plains of Abraham (a remarkable military adventure in the New World during the romantic era of the Seven Year’s War).
2007- The Declaration of Rights of Indigenous Peoples was adopted by the UN Assembly.
