Headed Home


I will be heading back home this morning after two weeks out here in the scrubland with Eva.

Don't really have anything of interest to report at this time.


Did you know that . . . ?

The highest point in Pennsylvania is lower than the lowest point in Colorado.



On this day in 1960 John F. Kennedy became the youngest man ever to be elected president of the United States, narrowly beating Republican Vice President Richard Nixon. He was also the first Catholic to become president.
Kennedy claimed during the campaign that he looked forward to meeting the challenges facing the strongest nation in the Free World. He did not have long to wait before those challenges were upon him. During the first few months of the Kennedy presidency, Kennedy appeared overwhelmed, first by the catastrophic failure of the Bay of Pigs invasion, then by a blustering Nikita Khrushchev during a summit meeting in Europe, and finally by the construction of the Berlin Wall.

JFK was assassinated on November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas.
