    Happy Birthday to Jackie Chan (1954)!  I once saw his spitting image walking by at the end of a marathon, although whether that says more about the bystander or my condition remains unknown.

    Happy Birthday to Tony Dorsett (1954)!  I never saw any likeness of him walking at the end of a race, but he does hold the record for the longest run from scrimmage in NFL history.

    2001: A Valparaiso, Indiana, couple who met through their mutual love of jogging were married in their running shorts after completing a 5-kilometer race in which they competed against their pastor and best man. During Wanda Johns' and Clarence Melion's wedding, the Rev. Duane Schmidt told the sweaty couple they were starting the "marathon of life." Johns' racing outfit included a white veil attached to a baseball cap, a wrist corsage and a white lace garter.

    Today is Jenkins' Ear Day, marking the date in 1731 when Spaniards boarded the British ship Rebecca off Jamaica and, among other atrocities, cut off the ear of mariner Robert Jenkins. Seven years later Jenkins appeared carrying his ear before a committee of the House of Commons. As a result, the British declared war on Spain. The 4-year conflict is still known as the War of Jenkins' Ear.

    April 9, 1865, the Army of Northern Virginia, led by Robert E Lee, surrendered to the Army of the Potomac, under Ulysses S Grant, at Appomattox Court House, Virginia.  Grant was born Hiram Ulysses Grant but admitted to West Point with his name fouled up and then changed it to match, thereby avoiding being afflicted with H.U.G. monogrammed towels.

    Does that include Americans with German Ancestry?

    Re: Man You guys are boring today!

    Trying to fudge factor what statistics I can find on line, the average American consumes over 4 gallons less beer per year than the average German.   An honorable, patriotic American of German ancestry would surely rise to the challenge raised by transatlantic cousins.

    April 10, 1874, the first Arbor Day is celebrated in Nebraska City, Nebraska.  The grove of redwoods there should start to mature in another 600-800 years.

    1986: When a Salem, Oregon, movie theater offered half-price tickets to see "Young Sherlock Homes" to anyone dressed as a movie star, 400 costumed customers showed up. Unfortunately, the star dressed as Edward G. Robinson pulled a gun and robbed the box office.
