This was such an important day that it needs to be mentioned.....

V-E Day

Date When Observed: May 8th

Victory in Europe Day (V-E Day) commemorates the end of fighting in Europe during World War II. After years of war, The Third Reich of Nazi Germany was defeated. Millions of people were killed. Adolf Hitler, Germany's Dictator, had committed suicide in his bunker in Berlin.

The German Army ceased fighting on May 2and, and formally surrendered unconditionally, on May 7th. The surrender of all German forces was arranged for May 8 at 11:01. The Allied countries planned to celebrate victory, and the cessation of hostilities.

Did you Know? The original planned date for the celebration of V-E Day, was May 9th, 1945. But, journalists caught wind of the plans. So, the U.S. and Brittain moved the date up by a day to May 8th. Russia kept to the original planned date for May 9th. Russia still celebrates V-E Day on May 9th.

I just realized that Harry S. Truman, US President at the time was born on this day in 1884 in a very
small town called Lamar, Missouri. The house that he was born in was only about 4 or 5 blocks from
my grandmothers.... Lamar is also my hometown... My claim to fame...

Dr John S Pemberton invented Coca‑Cola on 8 May 1886 in Atlanta, Georgia. He tried it out on customers at his local chemist, Jacobs' Pharmacy, where it proved so popular it immediately went on sale at five cents a glass. It was Dr Pemberton's friend and business partner, Frank M Robinson, who came up with the name Coca‑Cola and wrote it out by hand in the Spencerian script that we still use as our logo.

9 Facts About Coca-Cola's History That'll Make You Go "Whoa"

1. The creator of Coke was a colonel in the Confederate Army.
After earning a medical degree, John Stith Pemberton served in the Confederate Army during the Civil War and it was his life-threatening wound that sparked his quest in creating Coke. Pemberton had become addicted to morphine, and sought a way to combat this addiction

2. The original Coca-Cola prototype was both alcoholic and coked-up.
In 1885, Pemberton began marketing a beverage called "Pemberton's French Wine Coca," a mix of coca, kola nut, and damiana (a flowering shrub that has anti-anxiety and aphrodisiac qualities).

3. Coke is 127 years old?!
It officially launched wayyyyyy back in 1886.

4. Coke was originally marketed as a cure to many ailments including low sexual libido.
Pemberton was forced to take the alcohol out of his original coke wine formula due to prohibition laws, but he first touted that version as "a most wonderful invigorator of sexual organs." Once he launched Coca-Cola, he called the drink a "Brain Tonic" and "temperance drink" (anti-alcohol), saying it cured headaches, anxiety, depression, indigestion, and addiction.

5. Cocaine was removed from the drink in 1903.
But guess what - cocaine was still legal at that time. It wasn't outlawed until 1914.

6. It originally cost five cents a glass.
Roughly the equivalent of $1.26 today.

7. Coca-Cola has always been creative with advertising, so much so that some think they shaped the public's vision of Santa Claus.
Some notable advertising and marketing facts:
- From the beginning, Coca-Cola employed successful strategies such as creating non-Coke products like calendars and clocks and using pretty female spokesmodels.
- Norman Rockwell created art for Coke ads.
- In the 1930s, Coke created Christmas ads, depicting a jolly, red-suited Santa and although other depictions of Santa were part of pop culture history, Coke had a huge role in shaping our image of St. Nick.
- In the 1980s, the company attempted a "Coke in the Morning" campaign to try to win over coffee drinkers.

8. Coke has had a role in race relations.
In 1899, Coca-Cola became available in bottles as well as soda fountains, which means that there was a shift in consumer demographics. Explains The Atlantic, "minorities who couldn't get into the segregated soda fountains suddenly had access to it." It's suggested in a New York Times article that the removal of cocaine from the formula was sparked by racial tensions: "Southern newspapers reported that "negro cocaine fiends" were raping white women, the police powerless to stop them. By 1903, [then-manager of Coca-Cola Asa Griggs] Candler had bowed to white fears (and a wave of anti-narcotics legislation), removing the cocaine and adding more sugar and caffeine."

Coke was also present during the Civil Rights movement. In the '50s, soda fountains were at the height of their popularity, with Coke being a main component of this. However, establishments like fountains were still often segregated. Activists including Martin Luther King would often stage sit-ins at Coke-selling soda fountains.

9. Coke invented the 6-pack.
In 1923, the company began selling bottles in packages of six, which became common practice in the beverage industry.

Good morning Sandy and everyone. I received this in a friends email this morning and thought I would give red some competition... real or not real, don't know, (sad if it's real) but it has some humor to it,

Why Teachers Drink

The following questions were set in last year's GED examination

These are genuine answers (from 16 year olds)

Karl, very funny and very sad at the same time...
I hope you are doing well...
You are in my thoughts..

Posted on May 8, 2014 3:40:01 AM PDT
Good morning, Karl. I hope a bit of sunshine is finding its way into your life despite your grief. Thanks for the dose of humor . . . except that it is true, isn't it? My mother taught. My brother teaches. I have heard similar answers far too often.

@Donna, small.black.cat,
Yes, Mr. Dirt is a keeper. Just as well, as the terms were clearly stated: No exchanges, no returns; lifetime contract.

I would be happy to share the sunshine, so long as I don't have to have rain in its place. Clouds work just fine. Cooler days would be most welcome. As far as curling hair changing texture (without chemotherapy), are you telling me there is hope? I still HATE having curly hair. I would flat-iron it more often if my hair could handle the heat (and I had time, and if it mattered how it looked).

The owner of the Thoroughbred will take care of both horses while we are gone. The young woman who sits with Mom in the mornings will stay until we return. Her husband is in his third year of medical school. I don't know what we will do when he leaves. Unless we leave first . . . which would suit me fine.

Sandy, love the Coke trivia. I knew some of it, but nowhere near all of it.

Eight o' May is also the observation of the day the news of the end of the Civil War arrived in the Deep South and the end of slavery there. Southern ladies marked the day by serving dinner (the big, midday meal) to their former slaves, a tradition that was observed for many years in some form or fashion. The ladies of the church I attended in college cooked and served a big noonday dinner every year for all, but especially invited any domestic staff (maids, gardeners, handymen, etc.) they employed. Due to the ravages of war, the news did not cross the Mississippi River to those states west of it until the 19th of June, celebrated in some parts of Texas as June 'Teenth.

Thanks for the great start, Sandy! :) I love the Coke trivia. Karl, I've seen similar bits on FB, possibly that same one. I also agree with the funny, but sad. I remember grading a multiple choice science test my first graders had taken a couple of years ago. I got to the question asking which picture showed an environment. I was dismayed to find that several had chosen the picture of a couch. I'm still shaking my head over that one, but thinking it's a sad statement that they probably live their lives at home on the couch watching TV or playing video games.

Oops! Just fixed autocorrect turning Karl into Karla, which is my sister's name.

I just love your form of competition (much better than .....sport) - the only exercise that I really like is laughing and it is so good for you too.
Thank you for sharing and yes it is sad if it is really true, but you had me really laughing out so loud that I had to share with my work colleagues.

I am glad that you are able to appreciate the healing powers of humour thank you so much for sharing.
Take care ♥

We are flying to LA, then driving to San Diego. I'm not sure why we aren't flying to San Diego, though this way means I definitely get to see the cousin I like better than the one who lives in San Diego.

It is already too hot and humid to walk at 6 am. I'm hoping to get in my little pool around midday. The water is still a bit chilly from last night, but it is too hot not to be able to cool off in it. It's not much of a pool -- one of those inexpensive ones sold at Target and Wal-Mart but deep enough to allow me to do my water aerobic exercises which are so good for my joints and muscles. Not so good for my bones, though certainly not harmful.

There were so many things special about May 8th... But I didn't want to take up the whole 1st page... LOL...
It is also World Red Cross Day / World Red Crescent Day,
World Red Cross Day remembers and recognizes the efforts of National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies worldwide. According to the Red Cross website, this day recognizes:

"Worldwide efforts to advocate for the relief of human suffering, whether from disease, famine, disaster, or war. On May 8, the American Red Cross puts special focus on our programs that keep children healthy and safe around the globe."

May 8th was chosen, as it is the birthday of Henry Dunant, the founder of the Red Cross.

On Lost Sock Memorial Day, we suggest you spend a little time (as little as possible) searching for those missing socks. After a (very) brief search, and in good "Memorial" spirit, spend a minute reflecting upon how warm and comforting the missing socks were on your stinky toes. Then, by all means, get on with your life.

we encourage you to use this special day, to toss out all of your unmatched socks. Let's face it, you're never gonna find the missing one.

All for a Story

Monica Bisbaine loves being a modern girl in the Roaring Twenties. Her job writing a gossip column allows her access to all the local speakeasys in Washington, D.C., where she can dance the night away-and find fodder for her next article. But when the owner of the Capitol Chatter newspaper passes away, Monica wonders what will happen to her job, and the lifestyle she loves.

Max Moore may hold the title of editor-in-chief for evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson's paper, The Bridal Call, but Aimee calls all the shots. So when Max learns that his great-uncle has passed away, leaving him all his earthly possessions, Max resigns and heads to D.C. Determined to take over the Capitol Chatter, infuse it with his values, and turn it into a respectable paper, Max is soon bumping up against the equally determined Monica Bisbane.

Under Max's direction, Monica embarks on her most challenging assignment yet: infiltrating and reporting on the Anti-Flirt Society. Though reluctant at first, as Monica meets and mingles with the young women of the club, she begins to question the innocence of her flirtatious lifestyle. And when romance begins to blossom between Max and Monica, she must choose where her loyalties lie: with the young women of the society or the alluring pull of the speakeasy and its inhabitants.

How Do Court Reporters Keep Straight Faces?

These are from a book called Disorder in the Courts and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while the exchanges were taking place.

ATTORNEY: What gear were you in at the moment of the impact?
WITNESS: Gucci sweats and Reeboks.

ATTORNEY: Are you sexually active?
WITNESS: No, I just lie there.

ATTORNEY: What is your date of birth?
WITNESS: July 18th.
ATTORNEY: What year?
WITNESS: Every year.

ATTORNEY: Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn't know about it until the next morning?
WITNESS: Did you actually pass the bar exam?

ATTORNEY: Were you present when your picture was taken?
WITNESS: Are you kidding me?

ATTORNEY: She had three children , right?
WITNESS: Yes.
ATTORNEY: How many were boys?
WITNESS: None.
ATTORNEY: Were there any girls?
WITNESS: Your Honor, I think I need a different attorney. Can I get a new attorney?

ATTORNEY: How was your first marriage terminated?
WITNESS: By death..
ATTORNEY: And by whose death was it terminated?
WITNESS: Take a guess.

ATTORNEY: Can you describe the individual?
WITNESS: He was about medium height and had a beard
ATTORNEY: Was this a male or a female?
WITNESS: Unless the Circus was in town I'm going with male.

ATTORNEY: Doctor , how many of your autopsies have you performed on dead people?
WITNESS: All of them. The live ones put up too much of a fight.

ATTORNEY: Do you recall the time that you examined the body?
WITNESS: The autopsy started around 8:30 PM
ATTORNEY: And Mr. Denton was dead at the time?
WITNESS: If not, he was by the time I finished.

And last:

ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
WITNESS: No.
ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?
WITNESS: No.
ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?
WITNESS: No..
ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
WITNESS: No.
ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
WITNESS: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
ATTORNEY: I see, but could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law
