I loved that tune as done by the Andrews sisters!

While in the army I played in the band. The trumpet players had to do funeral gigs around the area which was rough for them as they were the last to board the van and had to sit on the engine cover. They blew Reveille and Taps as well.

Happy birthday Milton Berle. Actually, my mother couldn't stand him as he was a camera hog, sticking his face right up to the lens snd mugging. However in the early days of television I was in grade school and found him very funny. Milton Berle - Wikipedia

Yes, one can only take a stab at the date - no not just on the Ides of March - as he was born under the Roman calendar.

He came up with the Julian calendar. Julian calendar - Wikipedia

which was followed by the Gregorian calendar. Gregorian calendar - Wikipedia

This is all so confusing...
