Don't Know Why I'm So Listless Today

Tucson Weather Today


A couple days ago I watched a movie titled Liberal Arts. I liked it.

Then, last night I watched another one, titled No Country For Old Men. I'd watched it before,  a year or so ago. And I read the book. Liked it too. Of course, it was written by Cormac McCarthy so what's to not like?

(Can't think of anything else I want to write about)


Did You Know . . .?

Miley Cyrus's first job was to pick up the bras and underwear that her dad's fans (Country singer Billy Ray) threw on the stage. She got paid $10 for doing it.



On this day in 1865 Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered his army to Union General Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Court House, Virginia. They met at a house in Appomattox at 2:00 p.m. on the afternoon of April 9. Lee was resplendent in his dress uniform and a fine sword at his side. Grant arrived wearing a simple soldier's coat that was muddy from his long ride.

Although there were still Confederate armies in the field, the war was officially over. Four years of bloodshed had left a devastating mark on the country: 360,000 Union and 260,000 Confederate soldiers had perished during the Civil War.
