D I S C L A I M E R S – N O T E S - C O M M E N T S

(Disclaimer Revised: 2/7/2019) Originally I set this up as a point of reference for home schooling. I have also noted, that history is being rewritten right under our noses. The JFK, Jr. death is one that has the information on the net altered. This has turned into a monumental project. There is no discrimination on these pages. This site is designed using the KISS Principle. Anything that came out of the Lockheed Skunk Works always got my attention.

This is the final revision. I recently realized that I was stressing over getting days done before they came up. I ended that with a simple note on events that if they did not have a hyperlink, they were not verified and vetted. When this is completed sometime next year (2020), then all that will be needed will be updates to deaths and additions to births and events each day. Counts on time show each day has an investment of between thirty-five and forty-nine hours (working up September 11 events). Clicking a photo will lead to a page for more information on the person or event depicted in the photo. Events are getting done, but it is a lot of mining for data. I noted that I spent close to one half hour on one event finding data to complete it. If the mining shows month and year, but not the date, I add [1] to the end. If you don't see a [1] that means that the hyperlink shows somewhere in the text that the date, month, and year are verified. Note: I have found numerous events with conflicting dates, in duplicate locations. There are links to "Brainy History" that I can find no mention anywhere else on the net about the event. I left them for now, and may research further, but is "Brainy History" a good place for a source? (Not happy about time in the public library.) Another quick note, I have removed a lot of events because of no verification. I have moved many to the correct date (Surprised? Again, BH.). There may still be incorrect dates, if you have the time to mine them, fine. The same holds true for events. But just so you know, I will not lose sleep over them. I have also found myself to prove my humanity, with an error. When found they will be corrected. Almost all links associated with the photos are through Wikipedia or IMDb.com, at times, the birthday boys or girls will have a link to their home page, if available and active at the time of creation. If they go out of service? On occasion, links will be available on birthdays of special note not worthy of a photo to help you notice them. Some times locating a decent photo is very difficult. Maybe Wikipedia will make an offer on the data I can't refuse?

Actors, actresses, singers, country and rock music will be on the page. If you did nothing in English, automatic rejection! No Rappers! If they can't sing, they should not be in front of the microphone. It is called poetry, read it at a sitting like you are supposed to do. The other thing about rap "music", are the foul mouths I have found associated with it. I don't have the time to police them. Go ahead, be offended, I don't care!

Sports legends only. If they are playing outfield for the Bugtussle Bucks, nope. If they are in the HOF (Hall Of Fame, for the acronym challenged), and I know it or have researched it, they will be there. If their name has passed in front of me what I consider, enough times to notice their work or accomplishments, yes. (Quick Note: Most Yankees fit that description) There are no cricket, rugby, dart throwing, pool playing, English football, you get the drift here. Willie Mosconi and Minnesota Fats made the cut, just so you know...

Authors that a teacher made me read or study, yes. Nobel Prize laureates of noted social advancements to society, yes. I have been dismissive of Nobel Peace Prize winners after seeing who they have recently awarded this "Prize". If they make my list, there is reason, so be it. Questions on this? See this page to get a reason. —> (Irena Sendler) Now, recently, I noted that the inventor of DDT won a Nobel Prize. Really? I got my chops busted by a guy that follows me, telling me that DDT was wonderful in stopping mosquitoes and malaria. I pointed to the bee population.

Just a quick note on original construction. I might adjust it all day. I add, sometimes vet, for a few hours, until I am happy with it. I go over them and ask myself, what would I like to see here, to help remind me of our history? If there is music, I put in a link. Then, that way, I can click on a link and listen to it. Usually albums and songs. This way you can open in a new tab, and then listen as you go about surfin' or whatever. I researched the songs that are linked. Imagine my surprise when I found a song linked to a performer, and the performer was not with the group when the song was released. Time again becomes a factor. I hope you use these links, as I do and enjoy them. If you notice, I may get slack on this aspect near the end of the month. It piles up on me to get the next month done before it is "due!" I then keep tweaking it to satisfy me. I do this for me, if it pleases you, so be it.

Another note on original construction. I started in March, bits and pieces, data collection issues, technique, were all being assembled for construction. Some days are a bit scarce, but I am trying to keep up.

Events will try to be related to the United States, Israel, or related directly to United States diplomacy, or have benefited the world, as I see fit. You should be able to copy and paste for searching from this page. Most will have links, as I get time.

Copyright. Most photos are copyrighted, and noted within the .JPG property details. Licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share-Alike License 2.0 or later. Many are considered public domain. So you lawyers can get off your high horse. My guess is most will be happy with the publicity plug. That is all. I still find typos.
