Where does the time go?!

Happy New Year….again! Yes, it’s another New Year today. I’ve counted three in the last two months! Now it’s the Islamic New Year. 1426 H.

1426? That’s right, we’re traveling back in time today. Get ready everyone because on March 6th John, Duke of Bedford and the entire British army are going to kick the crap out of the French at the Battle of St. James.

Not to be confused with the battle of St. James Place. Which is a Monopoly thing. And one battle that’s really not worth winning.

So have a good New Year and a reflective Muharram.

Fun Fact: Lon Chaney, Jr. was born today in 1905. He wasn’t “the man of a thousand faces,” that was his father. But Jr. did get to develop an unhealthy obsession with rabbits in 1939.

Oh, and happy birthday to Eric! It was yesterday, but I didn't find out until today. Does that make you Chinese, Eric?
