  • As Yogi Berra would say, "It's Dj vu all over again." When I was raising my three kids, the sound of thundering sneakers, the clanging of forgot-to-remove-from-the-loops belt buckles and the dinging of brass divots on jeans echoed from the utility room 24/7. In fact, I never had as good a physical work-out as when I sat on the washing machine during the spin cycle.
  • I grew up in Brinker, Texas, U.S.A., the Hub of the Universe, east of Sulphur Springs in Hopkins County, a community that had more characters per square mile than any other place in the world. Practical jokes abounded, and my dad's stories of his growing up in Brinker kept us in tears of laughter.
  • 1564 birth of William Shakespeare, English poet, playwright and actor. William Shakespeare (26 April 1564 (baptized) 23 April 1616) was an English poet, playwright, and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon." His extant works, including some collaborations, consist of about 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other verses, of which the authorship of some is uncertain. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright. In the 20th and 21st century, his work has been repeatedly adopted and rediscovered by new movements in scholarship and performance. His plays remain highly popular today and are constantly studied, performed, and reinterpreted in diverse cultural and political contexts throughout the world.
