This could be THE Christmas gift of the year

An emergency Martini Kit (Kids - use less vermouth)

Now if I can only come up with instant ice.

Today is the birthday of both Boris Karloff (1887)

and Harpo Marx (1888).

And that makes this a good day.

Today in History:
November 23, 1910 -
English murderer Hawley Crippen an American physician is hanged in Pentonville Prison, London, England, after he was caught aboard the SS Montrose attempting to escape to Britain, on this date.

It was the first use of wireless radio for the apprehension of a criminal.

November 23, 1936 -
The first edition of Life, the picture magazine created by Henry R. Luce, was published.

It was an immediate sellout.

November 23, 1963 -
The first episode of Doctor Who, The Unearthly Child, premiered on the BBC, on this date.

William Hartnell was the first Doctor Who.

November 23, 1976 -
Jerry Lee Lewis has been a bad boy again. On this date, he was arrested in front of Graceland in Memphis for public drunkenness, and carrying a chrome plated .38.

Looking for Elvis, I bet.

32 more shopping days until Christmas, 8 more shopping days until Hanukkah. (Black Friday is just 3 days away.)


Here's a great GIF of Bill Murray in all of his great roles

And so it goes
