Happy Monday began back in 2012 during the summer Olympic games. We took time to mentioned that earlier this week in post #365. Then I was surprised by the announcement above from WordPress.

If anyone reading today has been with us since 2008, shout out in the comments.
I mentioned Daddy Daughter Date Night last Saturday. That’s Johannah and I at this year’s event. We have been four years in a row. Past events have included a horse drawn carriage ride, screenings of Beauty and the Beast and Frozen, while this year featured a Royal Ball and a limo ride. It was good to see my little brother and his two girls there for the first time. Thank you Chick-fil-A for sponsoring the event for the past 15 or so years.

The only question now is whether either of these two can win enough delegates to secure the nomination before the national convention.
Christianbook.com is the website for Christianbook, formerly Christian Book Distributors. Known simply as CBD for years, they began getting confused with the other CBD (of marijuana fame).

The truth is stranger than fiction. We’ve all heard stories of irate customers starting fights or brandishing weapons at places of business. Here’s a new twist: A Checkers employee shot a customer over a dispute arising from a wrong order. It happened this week at a location near Atlanta. The employee has been fired, you can read the whole story here.
Kids today. The picture above, on the left, is perhaps the first ever selfie, circa 1890. The pic on the right is a shot of the men taking the selfie. And they didn’t even need a bathroom mirror to do it.
Age test: Which of these is your “Uncle Jesse?”
Wait, did she just… I shared my two cents worth last week about the coronavirus. Here is perhaps the most ironic PSA in news conference history. Watch this 13 second clip, see if you can spot it.
