Wasn’t yesterday Bastille Day?

Alice Cooper – Be My Lover

Today’s Quote: “It doesn’t matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn’t matter how smart you are. If it doesn’t agree with experiment, it’s wrong.” — Richard Feynman, theoretical physicist


There were only seven prisoners in the Bastille when the peasants stormed it on July 14, 1789. They were actually after the arms and ammunition that were stored there. Freeing prisoners was just coincidental.


“She asked me why the singer’s name was Alice. I said, ‘Listen, baby You really wouldn’t understand.'” — Alice Cooper, Be My Lover


I went over to the FHC and reviewed the probate documents. They really didn’t reveal any new information but I printed the documents for my 5th great grandfather. I took a look at their library and found a couple of books listing early New England marriages. I looked up some I could remember. I’ll have to make a list and look them up.
