The day was Monday January 6, 1969.

  • The electoral college members who cast their votes back in December 16th had the final result certified on this date in the 1968 Presidential election. The results were certified after both houses of Congress debated on what to do with a change -a Nixon elector had changed his vote to George Wallace. The final results with 270 needed to win-Β  Republican Richard Milhous Nixon officially elected POTUS- with 301, the Democratic candidate- and current Vice President Hubert Humphrey 191 and the American Independent George Wallace 46.Β  The final in the popular vote had been closer than the electoral college. Nixon won 43.4 % of the vote to 42.7 for Humphrey and 13.4 for Wallace.
  • Another plane crash was in the news- Allegheny Airlines Flight 737 crashed on its approach to Bradford, Pennsylvania killing 11 on board on a multi-stop flight from Washington DC to Detroit City. In a creepy coincidence this came just two weeks after a Christmas Eve crash of Allegheny Airlines Flight 736 on its way to Bradford- taking the same route- killing 20 people. No cause was determined.

  • Born on this day- actor Norman Reedus- best known as The Walking Dead’s Daryl Dixon. My wife and I gave The Walking Dead a shot a few years ago- after all after hearing so much hype about it why not see what it’s all about. We made it halfway through Season 2 before giving up on it.

  1. We tried the Walking Dead… We lasted around the same…maybe a season longer…The normal humans struggle for power and then the zombies eat…over and over

    • Is the series over with now? Seems like it has been on forever. I know a few people who treat the opening of a new season like it is Christmas. It may be the most disappointing series ever to me. All you needed to see was an episode.

    • Nope. Still going. My Ken watches it…while I do other things.

      The series shifted gears this season (nine). The main protagonist left the series in the early episodes. He was wounded & carried off to parts unknown. Then, they fast forwarded six years and new people are showing up. Just like the walking dead, it could go on & on & on…πŸ™„πŸ˜–

  2. β€œ……….About a lucky man who made the grade…..” (sorry..couldn’t resist the title πŸ˜‰ )

    I got two episodes in to the walking dead and had nightmares for 3 days…πŸ˜‚

    • I don’t know how I made it to the middle of season 2- I guess I was an optimist- that maybe all the sudden it would turn into something good- how could so many people be so wrong!

  3. I never could do TWD. I had friends that were OBSESSED with it. πŸ™„ The Talking Dead just makes it worse. Actors sitting around talking about how their characters ‘feel’… Just how many levels of narcissism are there in Hellyweird?

    This show was nothing more than ‘Survivor: The Zombie Edition”.

    • This seems to be a show you either love or just don’t like- I know some people who are obsessed with it also.
