I went on a Middle East peace tour in 1984 which included Syria and Jordan, and the secret basement office of a militant Palestinian faction. We were not able to visit Lebanon, though, as it was too dangerous at the time. #saturdayff
In 1957, a Dallas housewife had her recipe for cake made with German's Baking Chocolate published in a local paper. It became wildly popular, and soon people all over the USA were making and enjoying her German's chocolate cake.
My Fitbit just took an unintended bath. I spilled on myself, so I through my shorts in the wash and completely forgot that the fitbit had been in my pocket until they had been underwater for about 4 or 5 minutes. It seems to be working fine, but it's hanging out in a bag of rice just to be sure.
Found the most charming young man to help me get the Minecraft mods Wade wants running. He is quite the whiz kid and our Skype consulting sessions are delightful. Finally got a Fossil and Archaeology mod running. Dinosaurs!
Took a little break from working at home and took my son out to breakfast and for a glorious walk on the beach. Now I'm sooo sleepy. Working on AdWords campaigns, starting to learn a new email marketing system, and thinking about getting back to work on some documentation but hard to stay awake!
Belated #saturdayFF - being a deadhead was a seminal part of my life. I went to somewhere between 50 - 100 shows between 1978 - 1995 (I did not obsessively keep ticket stubs so it would take some doing to pin that number down). That shared camaraderie of being able to look into the eyes of a stranger and your eyes are saying, "do you know?"
