Mother's Day

May 8th, 2005

in 199,265 BCE, the mother of all humanity gave birth to the first of her many children in southern Africa. She never got a card from a single one of them.

in 1886, Dr. John Pemberton’s Coca Elixir began being sold from Jacob’s Pharmacy in Atlanta, Georgia. The powerful medicine brightened the outlook and put pep in the steps of Georgians for years until cocaine was outlawed.

in 1910, Q’Bar ships in retreat from the Mlosh homeworld engage with Jovian raiders at the C’Tabo’Liet system and are utterly destroyed. Jovian representatives at the Barnard Star talks begin to press for concessions from the Q’Bar, emboldened by how well the war is going for them.

in 1937, gadfly writer Thomas Pynchon was born in Glen Cove, New York. This publicity-hungry writer entered the New York City literary scene with his short story The Small Rain and became a permanent fixture wherever a party or camera was to be found.

in 1970, Pete Best’s album So It Goes is released. It marks the turning point for his career as he abandons the old Liverpool sound for a new, more bluesy American musical style. Many of his British fans feel it is a betrayal, but critics across the pond embrace the album as Best’s finest work to date.

in 1984, in a twist ending, Joanie left Chachi at the altar on Happy Days. The plans for a spinoff series starring the two characters had fallen through, and the actors had not renewed their contracts for Happy Days, so they were written out with this episode.

in 1991, William Webster, the CIA director under George Bush, resigns prior to giving testimony against Bush in the Iran-Contra hearings. This is the final nail in the coffin of Bush’s presidency, and he himself resigns a month later.

in 1997, VA Day is celebrated in Great Britain, Egypt and China as the war in America is over. All prisoners of war were released and sent home, and the allied powers began reconstructing the American government; along the old lines in the east, where British and Egyptian forces held control, and along communist lines in the west, where the Chinese troops held the reins.

sorry if I sounded rude. I don't mean to be, but this is just bothering me.

Adding free software for "mother day applications" attracks customers. The reason why I mention in my mother day blog a freeware application called "Photo Cube Maker". This allows you to make a unique customized Photo Cube with your own pictures (of your mother, family, yourself, ...).
You can check it out at **Free Photo Cube Maker**

I wish you all the luck with this application.
Kindly regards,
