1973 – Secretariat wins the Triple Crown

This is new to use, never have tried it yet. Deep in the heart of RAT city is:

NOTE: from the White Center site:

During WWII, White Center garnered the nickname: Rat City. The possible origins of this name are diverse. The local wartime military establishment was called the Reserve Army Training Center or the Recruitment and Training Center, depending on who tells the story. Often the military would designate an area out-of-bounds for servicemen, and these areas were designated Restricted Alcohol Territory. Some people recall that the youth at the Southgate Skate Center were known as rink rats. Whatever the source, the name Rat City was coined and has stuck throughout the years. Many in White Center hang on to the moniker with pride. Rodents had nothing to do with it.

And from History Link.org:

Resident Martha Stevens recalls a different effect on wartime White Center: “Servicemen unleashed from duty would spend a great deal of money and drink to excess causing many fights” (Knapp and Young, PAGE). Dances were “not always under control” (Knapp and Young, 92). Another resident, Melvin Larson (b. 1914), remembered that when he waited for the bus home from 1st Avenue in downtown Seattle, he was frequently approached by soldiers and sailors who invariably asked the same question: “How do you get to White Center?”

Lunch, Friday March 31

Spring is here, time for outside dining and Musubi (grill Spam on a block of rice wrapped in nori).

“Although lore behind the name Spam varies, Hormel himself claimed the product was named for a combination of the words “spice” and “ham,” despite the fact that neither ingredient appears in Spam. The confusion has led some to speculate that Spam is an acronym for “Shoulder of Pork And Ham,” but company line gives Kenneth Daigneau, the brother of a Hormel VP, credit for naming the product. As Hormel tells it, he launched a naming contest for the new product during a New Year’s Eve party, when Daigneau spit out “Spam” as if “it were nothing at all,” Hormel told Gill. “I knew then and there that the name was perfect.”

Lunch February 3rd


The day the Music Died 1959 – Deaths of rock and roll musicians Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J. P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson, in a plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa.
 

A long long time ago
I can still remember how
That music used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could make those people dance
And maybe they’d be happy for a while
 
But February made me shiver
With every paper I’d deliver
Bad news on the doorstep
I couldn’t take one more step
 
I can’t remember if I cried
When I read about his widowed bride
Something touched me deep inside
The day the music died

 
– Don McLean – American Pie Lyrics
