    Apollo 11 Lunar Lander 50 years ago

    From TIME magazine: “Houston,” said Armstrong tentatively. A long pause. Then: “Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed.” “Roger, Tranquility,” sighed Mission Control. “We copy you on the ground. You got a bunch of guys about to turn blue. We’re breathing again.” The time was 4:18p.m. Cape Kennedy time, Sunday, July 20, 1969. Man had landed on the moon......... .........Slowly, they bled the pressure from their spacecraft, letting oxygen out, vacuum in. At 10:40 p.m., Armstrong reported, “The hatch is coming open.” Then, following Aldrin’s instructions, he began to back out onto the porch of the spacecraft, taking care that his suit did not catch or snag in the narrow opening. It was slow going. His 185-pound suit, weighing only some 30 pounds in lunar gravity, was more a hindrance because of its bulk than its weight. Suddenly he was standing on the porch of Eagle, beginning the tentative steps down the nine rungs of the ladder. On the way he pulled a lanyard releasing an equipment shelf and a television camera. Now, on screens all over the earth, you could see the stark shadows, and there, swinging, searching, a boot, Armstrong’s boot. Bit by bit, the whole man appeared. Now, off the last rung, onto the saucer-like footpad. Then, cautiously again, unsure of what was below it, he stepped with his left foot, a size 9½ foot in a clumsy, awkward step. He pressed the lunar surface at 10:56 p.m. His first words were, “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” For 20 minutes he walked alone on the alien soil of the moon before Buzz Aldrin followed the same backward route down the ladder to join him. Aldrin looked around and his first words were, “Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. A magnificent desolation.”......... Made for primetime TV!
  4. I do like cool exciting presenters better than a bunch of relatives going on and on about someone.......sounds like Thanksgiving at home. Now I do like the interesting winners and their good stories.

    Rutherford B. Hayes Week

    Gip you piqued my curiosity on this subject, more presidents had NO degrees than were lawyers......how about that! True most were way back in time. Did not graduate from collegeEdit George Washington (The death of his father ended Washington's formal schooling; however, he believed strongly in formal education. In his will, he left money and/or stocks to support three educational institutions.[1]) James Monroe (attended the College of William and Mary but dropped out to fight in the Revolutionary War) Andrew Jackson Martin Van Buren William Henry Harrison (attended college but never received a degree) Zachary Taylor Millard Fillmore (founded the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York) Abraham Lincoln (had only about a year of formal schooling of any kind) Andrew Johnson (no formal schooling of any kind) Grover Cleveland William McKinley (attended Allegheny College (did not graduate) and Albany Law School (did not graduate) Harry S. Truman (went to business college and law school but did not receive a degree) UndergraduateEdit Some presidents attended more than one institution. George Washington never attended college, though The College of William & Mary did issue him a surveyor's certificate.[2] Only one president attended a foreign college at the undergraduate level: John Quincy Adams at Leiden University (John F. Kennedy intended to study at the London School of Economics, but failed to attend as he fell ill before classes began.) Three presidents have attended the United States Service academies: Ulysses S. Grant and Dwight D. Eisenhower graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point, while Jimmy Carter graduated from the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland. No presidents have graduated from the much newer U.S. Air Force Academy. Eisenhower also graduated from the Army Command and General Staff College, Army Industrial College and Army War College. These were not degree granting institutions when Eisenhower attended, but were part of his professional education as a career soldier. A complete list of each president and his undergraduate educational history appears below. M.B.A. (Master of Business Administration)Edit School Location President(s) Harvard Business School Boston, Massachusetts George W. Bush J.D. or equivalentEdit School Location President(s) Columbia Law School New York, New York Theodore Roosevelt Franklin Delano Roosevelt Duke University Law School Durham, North Carolina Richard Nixon Yale Law School New Haven, Connecticut Gerald Ford Bill Clinton Harvard Law School Cambridge, Massachusetts Barack Obama Note: Nixon and Ford were awarded LL.B. degrees.[3][4] When U.S. law schools began to use the J.D. as the professional law degree in the 1960s, previous graduates had the choice of converting their LL.B. degrees to a J.D.[5] Duke University Law School made the change in 1968,[6] and Yale Law School in 1971.[7] Theodore Roosevelt[8] and Franklin D. Roosevelt[9] were awarded posthumous J.D. degrees in 2008.[10] Ph.D.Edit School Location President(s) Johns Hopkins University Baltimore, Maryland Woodrow Wilson

    Apollo 11 Lunar Lander 50 years ago

    I remember the landing pretty well we were together at a friend's house gathered around the TV taking it all in in 1969. Mankind hasn't done much since that day. I was 18 entering my second year in college and in my first year at USSteel.......great times.
  8. Not exactly the most exciting list of presenters this year.
  9. Just from my desk drawer most all are $50s and not the ones in my wife's purse or the ones I have not sent for yet. Give me your number and I will fax you a few.

  13. As of today, more than 72,000 Americans who were involved in World War II remain unaccounted for, according to the Defense Department. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ There were some real hell holes in the Pacific my late father-in-law was in several of them. I worked with many of those guys in the steel mills, a tough bunch including Lou a member of that Greatest Generation. God bless them all.

    All Time Browns Depth Chart

    You know what this is. Before there was a Joshua Cribbs, there was an Eric Metcalf. Touching Eric Metcalf on a punt return kills you immediately. I was going to look at the impact of Paul Brown and football. Then Josh Cribbs took me back to one of the best afternoons of my young football life. October 24th, 1993 Eric Metcalf shouldn't have played. He injured his right knee in the previous weeks win over the Bengals. He missed practice on Monday, Tuesday, Wednsday and Thursday. On Friday he did nothing but a light walk through. In today's NFL world he would have been declared doubtful (although our coach was Belichick, so maybe not). On Friday he told Cleveland Browns owner (I refuse to add his name to such an amazing tale) "I'm playing in the Pittsburgh game. I'm just not going to miss that." Thank God he didn't......... https://www.dawgsbynature.com/2009/12/22/1212207/a-look-back-the-greatest-punt
