After a loooonnnng delay, and no outcry whatsoever, we present (we??) a NEW entry to the YES Almanac!


On this 11th day of April in the year of our Lord 1970, Apollo 13, the third lunar landing mission, is successfully launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida, carrying astronauts James A. Lovell, John L. Swigert, and Fred W. Haise. The spacecraft’s destination was the Fra Mauro highlands of the moon, where the astronauts were to explore the Imbrium Basin and conduct geological experiments. After an oxygen tank exploded on the evening of April 13, however, the new mission objective became to get the Apollo 13 crew home alive. Lovell reported to mission control: “Houston, we’ve had a problem here.” I remember this vividly...what a nail biter...never saw the movie...the phrase has become so famous and infamous...in fact I use it quite often when people are ignoring me or not paying attention...so strange to be back to burnt orange first reply...does this mean I'm catching up?...HAH! Oh my yes, you are almost there! oh my , oh my! this post couldn't have come at a more timely time???...does that sound/look right?...oh well, you know what I mean...I'M HERE...I'm current, no more attempting to post from the past...no more six months in arrears (hmmm?...haven't seen that word in awhile) we shall simply consider the past six months a "right off"...let's say I was indisposed and was told to get current and attempt to stay current for mental health reasons...yeah, that's the ticket...so everything is good, okay?...or do I need a doctor's excuse? no doctor excuse necessary, we are all certain you need medical attention oh I am so glad we all can agree on something...in this day and age do you have any idea how rare that is?...we should all be so proud of ourselves...say, let me ask you something, why are you typing green again?...you are supposed to be typing blue...after green comes red and after red comes...oh never mind, you go ahead and type whatever you want...I will figure it out...to be honest with you I am a wee bit testy because I realize I am already 3 to 4 pages behind again..and I refuse to get all nervous and jittery about this again...I refuse to start losing sleep about this again...I refuse to completely lose my appetite (this part is a lie, of course) again...let me tell you something, there should be some rules and regulations about the number of consecutive posts a person is allowed to make...I'm surprised Mo hasn't mentioned this in the past...I will continue to try to catch up; but I think  after 4 (possibly 5) consecutive posts a person should stop...go downstairs and post awhile...or go outside...maybe the backyard or even the garage and not post again here until someone else has...however, when I am struggling to catch up the rules don't apply to me..I have special privileges...Mo has granted them to me because she loves me the best...now that we have that perfectly crystal clear let us move right along


On April 17, a last-minute navigational correction was made, the repressurized CM was successfully powered up after its long, cold sleep. Just before 1 p.m., the spacecraft reentered Earth’s atmosphere. Mission control feared that the CM’s heat shields were damaged in the accident, but after four minutes of radio silence Apollo 13‘s parachutes were spotted, and the astronauts splashed down safely into the Pacific Ocean.


Born April 11
1370 Frederick I the Warlike, elector of Saxony - with a nickname like this, it's safe to assume he was not a peaceable fella I definitely agree what do you suppose is an elector of Saxony? probably what we would call a lobbyist sorry I asked...this is sort of sounding "political" and we sure as hech don;t want to get Mo excited again so soon nope, the Yankees can get her excited but not us good thinking; wise man

1913 Oleg Cassini, fashion designer (Jackie Kennedy), born in Paris, France - would he have been as famous had he dressed Bess Truman? ya' know this sort of thing is very difficult to determine...not that Bess was any more or less attractive than Jackie...in fact, I never thought Jackie was attractive...simply very photogenic you are such an insightful fellow me, insightful?...nope, it was the photographers who were/are insightful...I'll tell you two others that fall into the same category, in my opinion, Cher and Cindy Crawford...no! no! not Cindy, she is very fine...I mean the "Pretty Woman" lady...her name happens to slip my mind at this moment...maybe I need to be indisposed a bit longer...HAH! I believe you mean Julia Roberts or perhaps Robert Julius??? yep, that's the one...thank you for remembering her for me...so what does everyone think?...attractive or simply photogenic?...vote with your eyes; not your heart...I have contracted Neilson and they will tally the votes and report on their results


1931 Johnny Sheffield, actor (Boy-Tarzan Finds a Son), born in Pasadena, California - I thought he played Cheetah? what Cheetah?....a real live Cheetah; or a Boy named Cheetah...any relation to Gary?...Justus?...or the gentleman who makes knives? knives?? you mean Sam Bowie? no not the Bowie one...Sam Sheffield from across the pond (I really dislike that expression)   http://www.sheffieldknives.co.uk/      please be aware you have to be 18 to watch this website....son of a gun we are far too old...oh well...say, let me ask you something do you think Justice will make the 40 man roster?...will CC be part of the rotation?...or assigned to the bull pen or possibly share the pitching coach duties with David Cone?...wow, that's way too much New York Yankee stuff for now...where were we?...oh yeah, knives...I used to have a Bowie knife (way before I was 18, by the way)...I think it is next to my baseball cards in my mother's base...oh never mind... I'd like to see El Duque as pitching coach, hope CC will be back I am convinced CC will be back...Orlando would be an excellent choice!...how exciting for all

1950 Bill Irwin, Santa Monica, actor (My Blue Heaven, Scenes From a Mall) - funny fellow amaeing!...have you ever tried this...how do you suppose he did this...I really want to know...if anyone out there knows this very cool stunt, please message me...I really need to know


maybe he had accordion parts for legs well wouldn't we have heard the accordion parts playing some sort of tune while he was walking down the stairs?...perhaps a polka? oddly it was not a polka, but a waltz this would for sure be the selection...I am convinced:

1955 Piers J Sellers, English astronaut and climate scientist, born in Sussex (d. 2016) - was great in those "Pink Panther" movies yes indeed...liked him a lot...did not know he was an astronaut and a global warming person also Personally, I've never warmed to this global warming hypeMuUGpnZBvuM personally I think global warming is overrated...and if such a condition truly exists it has probably been caused by the extinction of the dinosaurs... or flatulent elephants hahaha...you always know just the right thing to write in order to keep us on task

1970 Trevor Linden, Medicine Hat, NHL right wing (Canucks, NY Islanders) - I think I've heard of this fellow yep...great name for a city his wife must be Elizabeth Elizabeth Medicine Hat?...no, no you are confusing her with Jane Seymour...maybe not sure Ive ever confused anyone with Jane Seymour, well maybe Jacqueline Bisset say, I am embarrassed to admit that I am still unable post still images and make them stay in the post after I select submit...so would you be kind enough to post mages of Jane and Jackie so we can determine if they are identical twins...thank you


1980 Mark Teixeira, Yankees baseball player - I was always a big fan me too...have you noticed no New York Yankee is wearing #25...why? I haven't noticed and I do not know why. Please tell us!! I have no idea...that's why I was asking you...CLIPPER!!!...anyone?...feel free to chime right in...this is a legitimate, New York Yankee topic Mo will not take away your posting privileges or hack your emails...or blow up your...oh, never mind... such violent imagery, thank you for stopping when you did, I was starting to get scared. still waiting for answer people...I can be extremely patient, believe me....do you suppose players will shy away from #28 as well...I predict Austin Romine will be wearing #25 this season considering he gave #27 to Stanton...comments...thoughts opinions...don't be shy...chime on in





"...let it be known that as of this date in Major League Baseball history the one, truly honest single season home run record...61 in '61..."

On this 21st day of April in the year of our Lord 1918, in the skies over Vauz sur Somme, France, Manfred von Richthofen, the notorious German flying ace known as “The Red Baron,” is killed by Allied fire. Snoopy continues to profess his innocence. I am certain he is innocent...Snoopy would never shoot the Red Baron down dead...he ejoyed his pizza too much to consider that...by the way, did the Royal Guard do any other songs? yes, but it appears they were mostly covers covers?...covers you say...bed covers...book covers...seat covers...swimming pool covers...are we there yet? ground covers actually. and we have been there for some time now
Born April 21

1816 Charlotte Brontë,English novelist (Jane Eyre), Thornton, West Yorkshire – was her sister also famous?  yep, actually sisters oh, I see ... as opposed to sisters is there any chance you might be able to help me understand what is going on here...please? but of course, back in the early 1800s there were sisters who were not "sisters", but rather "sisters". it is a confusing relationship at times, but if you consider the familial applications and implications, you will find it is really quite simplistic in its most basic terms, Generally speaking, you will find these women to be quite relatable in their relationship with their relatives.


1887 Joe McCarthy, Yankee manager – 1460 – 867 with Yankees, 7-1 in World Series wore a suit and tie...not a uniform...who started with the uniforms...by the way, was he a Communist? I often wonder why only baseball coaches wear uniforms. Wouldn't it be fun to see NFL coaches with helmets and shoulderpads .... OHHHH, he was not a Communist, he was actually a Whig can you imagine???...NFL coaches wearing full uniforms...what an image, my brain is laughing at this right out loud...and just think if Joe McCarthy had been an NFL coach instead of an MLB manager he wouldn't have had to wear a silly old Whig under his helmet...forgive me you are quite forgiven. and it was the other Joe McCarthy who was involved with communists
1911 Leonard Warren, baritone, NYC, New York (Met-1939-60) died on stage, what do you do for an encore?? WOW!...poor soul...did not know this...what was he singing at the time?...no encore for this poor fellow appearing as Don Carlo in Verdi's "Forza del Destino," collapsed onstage after singing the aria "Urna fatale del mio destino" ("Fatal urn of my destiny") Hmmm?...do you suppose they cremated him and put him in the urn when all was said and done? that would certainly be appropriate

1926 Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor, Elizabeth II, Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland, 1952- ), London, England – is it LIZ or Betsy? I am to understand her very closest friends call her Libby and a young chap back in 1944, affectionately called her Angle Cake hmmm?...can't imagine who would have had such a lovable nick name her except maybe Prince Philip? it would be indiscreet of me to respond


1935 Charles Grodin, Pitt, actor, Woman in Red, Lonely Guy, Heartbreak Kid) – funny fellow very...why didn't we think to cast him in Seinfeld? you were thinking during the casting??? you are right of course...there is no thinking in casting...how do you suppose M*A*S*H will progress?...no thinking allowed based on the rules (no thinking) you have set forth, I have no idea how it will progress.
1935 Robin Dixon, England, 2 man bobsled (Olympic gold 1960) this is definitely a sport...right?...actually, maybe not...hmmm? are any conveyances sports I have given this some considerable thought and you are absolutely correct...unless you might reconsider calf roping? I have never considered calf roping, so I am not sure I can reconsider it

1949 Patti LuPone, Northport NY, actress/singer (Evita, Life Goes On) – don’t cry for her very talented...was the original Grizabella in Cats, the musical meow wasn't she involved or supposed to be involved in "Eight Is Enough?"...a very great show by the way she was the original choice to play the little boy Nicholas, but a scheduling conflict did not allow her to take the part


1951 Tony Danza, (Tony Banta-Taxi, Tony Micelli-Who's the Boss), Brooklyn, NY – Joe Girardi lookalike never thought of that until now...poor Joe, I am very sad for him me too. I would have preferred he stay and Cashman leave yep...I had it all figured out...Cashman was going to fall off the side of a building and become physically and mentally disabled...Alex Rodriguez was going to take his place as General Manager until he eventually bought the franchis you should write crime dramas
