Tuesday has no feel – Newman

You can put some feel into this Tuesday with #GivingTuesday, a Global Giving Movement.

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

One of the best ways to get involved is in your own community. We’ve created a directory to help you find organizations, charities, events and more in your own community.

It is Thanksgiving. We hope everyone that celebrates has a wonderful day. As ever, shut up about politics and religion.

I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual. -Henry David Thoreau

Carrie by Stephen King

On this date in 1976, Stephen King’s Carrie opens in theaters. Sissy Spacek becomes every young man’s secret nightmare.

Directed by Brian De Palma, the film tells the story of high school outcast Carrie White, who uses her telekinetic powers to exact a violent revenge on her teenage tormenters on prom night. In addition to Spacek, who received a Best Actress Oscar nomination for her performance in the title role, the film’s cast included Piper Laurie, Amy Irving, William Katt, Nancy Allen and a then relatively unknown John Travolta. Carrie became a classic of the horror genre and is considered by many critics to be one of the best big-screen adaptations of Stephen King’s work.

We agree with CARRIE being one of the best adaptations. We also like the movie adaptation of THE MIST, so our judgement should be questioned.

If you haven’t yet, read CARRIE, and then watch the movie. Or reverse those, we’re not your boss.

On this date in 1907, Oklahoma enters the Union as the 46th State.

Oklahoma, with a name derived from the Choctaw Indian words okla, meaning “people,” and humma, meaning “red,” has a history of human occupation dating back 15,000 years. The first Europeans to visit the region were Spanish explorers in the 16th century, and in the 18th century the Spanish and French struggled for control of the territory. The United States acquired Oklahoma from France in 1803 as part of the Louisiana Purchase.

In 1907, Congress decided to admit Indian Territory and Oklahoma Territory into the Union as a single state, with all Indians in the state becoming U.S. citizens.

As former residents of the Great State of Oklahoma, we thought this was neat. A nice place to visit, but hotter than hell in the summer!
