  • The 8th Annual Fannin County Family Crisis Center ‘You Hold the Key’ Dinner & Auction is coming up! Save the date. February 28, 6:00 p.m. at the Frist Baptist Church Community Center in Bonham.
  • There are very few true living legends in the world of classical music, and fewer still have sustained greatness and grown throughout their lives. Pepe Romero is such an artist.
  • Lanny Joe (right) and his college fraternity brother Chester are the ultimate odd couple. Chester is fastidiously clean, precise, and eats only nuts and berries, while Lanny is lah-di-dah, pell-mell, and eats nuts and berries only if they’re coated in chocolate. What they do have in common is that they both choke on their own spit.
  • Court bouillon is the traditional method of poaching foods that uses an acid (wine and lemon juice) and aromatics (bouquet garni and mirepoix). Wine is usually used for poaching fish and fruit, while poultry is cooked with broth, and eggs with water and vinegar.
  • 1964 – The Beatles have their first number one hit in the United States with "I Want to Hold Your Hand." "I Want to Hold Your Hand" is a song by the English rock band the Beatles. Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, and recorded in October 1963, it was the first Beatles record to be made using four-track equipment. With advance orders exceeding one million copies in the United Kingdom, "I Want to Hold Your Hand" would have gone straight to the top of the British record charts on its day of release (29 November 1963) had it not been blocked by the group's first million seller "She Loves You," their previous UK single, which was having a resurgence of popularity following intense media coverage of the group. Taking two weeks to dislodge its predecessor, "I Want to Hold Your Hand" stayed at number one for five weeks and remained in the UK top fifty for twenty-one weeks in total. It was also the group's first American number one, entering the Billboard Hot 100 chart on 18 January 1964 at number forty-five and starting the British invasion of the American music industry. By 1 February it held the number-one spot, and stayed there for seven weeks before being replaced by "She Loves You," a reverse scenario of what had occurred in Britain. It remained on the US charts for a total of fifteen weeks. "I Want to Hold Your Hand" became the Beatles' best-selling single worldwide. In 2013, Billboard Magazine named it the 44th biggest hit of "all-time" on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.
