Manley in the Morning

I was born & raised in Marysville, Washington (the other Marysville).  I am the son of teacher parents so education was pretty important in my family.  I graduated with a B.S. degree in Organizational & Mass Communications from Eastern Washington University (after a lengthy battle over a typing compentency test, which I eventually won).  When I got to college I asked someone who had the best parties and they told me to try the Radio & Television Department.  So I got a job on the campus station and it turns out the guy was right, I got hooked on radio and the rest is the proverbial history.

 

I'd like to know what you are up too.  Send me an e-mail about your favorite things to do, fun websites you've found, funny stories or gossip you may have heard and things that you and your friends and co-workers are talking about (I can always use the material).  Thanks for listening and thanks for stopping by my page.  By the way if you have any thoughts about stuff you'd like to see here, send me an e-mail. - Manley

 

 


Manley's History lesson...

 

Friday July 1, 2016:

 

*National Postal Worker Day:1

*National Creative Ice Cream Flavor Day:1

*National Gingersnap Day: 1

*Canada Day: 1
*National GSA Employee Day: 1
*Second Half of The Year Day: 1
*U.S. Postage Stamp Day: 1
*Zip Code Day: 1

 

On this date in 1847, the first adhesive postage stamps were sold. Up until that time, you had no way to stick them on, so you'd put them inside the envelope and your mail was always returned due to insufficient postage.

 

In 1862, Congress made polygamy illegal. And, seriously, guys, you'd want more than 1 anniversary to remember?

 

On this date in 1863, the famous Civil War battle at Gettysburg took place.  We don't know exactly where it was because they lost the address.

 

In 1874, the first zoo in the U.S. opened in Philadelphia, the city of Brotherly Love, as long as your brother wasn't an animal. On opening day, the city slogan was temporarily changed to "The City of Animaly Love."

That doesn't sound right!

 

On this date in 1929, the cartoon character Popeye was born. And spinach growers everywhere rejoiced!

 

On this date in 1935 The Warner Brothers cartoon character Porky Pig debuts in "I Haven't Got A Hat." After coming up with a good cartoon character name, they just used the first title to come along. Obviously, that wasn't all, folks.

 

THIS WEEK IS…
 

*Fish Are Friends, Not Food! Week: 26-7/2
*National Mosquito Control Awareness Week: 26-7/2
*National Prevention of Eye Injuries Awareness: 27 -7/4
