            Sigh!  Last CREW event – Chinese on 3-20-20

May 17th is      Pack ๐Ÿ€  Rat  Day!
       Some people just can’t throw “stuff” away.
              Not to be confused with hoarders, 
                      they keep   EVERYTHING. 
       Ugh!  Still have some old Playboy Magazines
                   and at least 3 or 4 Hot Rod issues.

Remember the TV show Your Hit Parade

Dorothy Collins, Giselle Mckenzie, Snooky Lanson
& Russell Arms sang our favorite songs in the 50’s.

WW1 Limerick: I have a little bird her name isย  Enza. I opened the window and in flu Enza.ย  Sad News:

Hello CREW… ๐Ÿ’˜ ๐Ÿ˜ท                                           

     GOOD NEWS:   No reports of  CHS Alumni  with Corona.

Hummm  that strange, have a six pack in teepee :-).
 
Corona virus tracking sites:
 
        covid-19  Florida City by City  –  Cocoa 4   Rock 3   M.I. 3   C.B. 3
 
       covid-19  Florida County by County    –   Brevard  72    .00012%

 

The population of Brevard County Fl     approx. 600,000.
     covid-19 cases in Brevard  72  =  .00012%   very low.
UNLESS  it  is  YOU!
  Stay at home and wash your hands!
 
Worsteverflupandemic:๐Ÿ˜ฒ
The great influenza pandemic of 1918-19, called Spanish Flu,
caused about 50 million deaths worldwide;  far more than
deaths from combat casualties in World War One  (1914-18). 
In fact, it may have killed  3% –  6%  of the global population.
 
WW1 Limerick:    I have a little bird her name is  Enza. 
                        I opened the window and    in flu Enza. 
 
Sad News:

April 26     Today is National  ๐Ÿฅจ  Pretzel Day
     Believed to be world’s oldest snack. 610AD, France.
        Monks baked strips of dough into the shape of a

Took a long time to find something to go with beer.
  Earliest evidence of beer, made from barley. 3500-3100 BC.
 
What?  Millions of gallons of BEER going stale.
                Might be time for  CHS TIGERS to pick up
 the pace and save the BEER industry!  ๐Ÿ˜
