Happy Birthday Ella Fitzgerald!!

It's not really possible to pick *one* favorite track by her, not really. But this one is easy to listen to over and over again... The little combo puts some real swing into it. And Ella, oh man... I agree. Let's just fall in love. Worth listening to the whole track, they let the tape roll and you can hear them talk about the recording. A favorite, among many.

Today is April 26.

Many of the southern states in the U.S. celebrate Confederate Memorial Day today, commemorating the ~258,000 members of the Confederate States Army, Navy, Marines, and militia who died in combat during the Civil War.

Today is also Hug A Friend Day, so, hug somebody, dammit! Here's how.

As well, today is World Intellectual Property Day.

Russia, and Belarus, commemorate the Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster with Memorial Day of Radiation Accidents and Catastrophes, and Day of Remembrance of the Chernobyl Tragedy, respectively.

Today is the Feast Day of Aldobrandesca. But don't say that word aloud. I did, and my coffee table disappeared.
