The Daily Dose – Saturday, July 28,

Sparrow’s back, reporting on his trip to the big city to see The Wife and the Dead Sea Scrolls on today’s edition of The Diary of a Nobody. Sparrow reports he was suspicious the Scrolls might be frauds because they’re not in English and they wrote right to left besides. He also took his old boots, that he had never bothered to take out of his car, to a cobbler to get fixed. He and The Wife had dinner at Chinese joint in a strip mall.

The Thought for the Day is back, too, with regular contributor Henry David Thoreau providing a quote from his diary about when it is necessary to travel. Thon 1reau kept his diary for over two decades and it can be found in book form and made for very good reading.

On This Date
In 1995 – Mexico records its highest temperature ever, 125.6, near Mexicali, which is on the border with the US, a couple of hours inland from the Pacific Ocean. We happened to be living across the border from Mexicali, in California’s Imperial Valley, at the time and when I signed off from my radio show at 12 noon the temperature repeater in the studio read 124 degrees. Friends, at that heat you don’t even want a breeze because it feels like you stuck your head in an oven.

In 1963 – Stan Musial of the St Louis Cardinals strikes out three times in a game for the only time in his career, all against Chicago Cubs starter Dick Ellsworth in a game won by the Cubs 5-1. In his 22-year career, Musial played in 3,026 games.

In 1979 – Donna Summer is at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the third week with Bad Girls. It was Summer’s third of four #1’s and also topped Billboard’s Dance and R&B charts and also went to #1 in Canada. It would spend five weeks atop the Hot 100, and was Billboard’s #2 song of the year.
