Going to the Mattresses

If only this man was wearing a seat belt. Lesson learned. When sitting on a mattress in the back of a pick-up truck buckle up-it's the law.

Alan Greenspan and Gabriel García Márquez will be sleeping soundly in their birthday beds tonight. Unless of course a strong wind comes by. Then we'll have to hope they were buckled up.

Today is somebody's Birthday! Whose Birthday? Former Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank Alan Greenspan's Birthday. How Old Is He? 1,2,3,4... 82! And Never been Kissed By... Death

Alan Greenspan's name appears on "6 Feet Under's" roster

  • On June 2, 1987 President Reagan nominated Dr. Greenspan as a successor to Paul Volcker as chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, and the Senate confirmed him on August 11, 1987. After the nomination, bond markets experienced their biggest one-day drop in 5 years.
That's gotta make the new guy feel right at home, huh?

Today is somebody else's Birthday! Whose Birthday? Nobel Prize-winning Colombian novelist Gabriel García Márquez's Birthday. How Old Is He? 1,2,3,4... 81! And Never been Kissed By... Death

Gabriel García Márquez's name appears on "Blue's" and "Whoaa-ooah, Dying on the Edge's" rosters
  • García Márquez is noted for his friendship with former Cuban president Fidel Castro and has previously expressed sympathy for some Latin American revolutionary groups, especially during the 1960s and 1970s.
So although they can't be near each other geographically, at least they get to be near each other on this blog. BDPE-Bringing friends together since 2007.

... And Many More!
