Birthdays & Anniversaries for Wednesday
Coming up our list of listeners celebrating here on August 13th. First though, if you are a Leftie, then this is a day just for you!
It's Left Hander's Day!

Back in the 1600's folks, thought of left handers as witches and warlocks.

Right handed people use the left side of their brain, while left handed people use their right side, proving that only lefties are in their right mind.
The Lefthander's Slogan: "Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it".
It seems that the world around us is built for right handers, but remember today and every day: Lefties have rights. So, take a moment today to appreciate your left handed friends and relatives.
