Emily Davison Suffragette Martyr At the 1913 Epsom Derby, a 41-year-old British suffragette named Emily Davison wanted to attract attention to her cause. Her plan was to disrupt the race by entering the course and pinning a pro-suffragette ribbon on a racehorse owned by King George V. As the archival footage shows, Davison was violently bowled over by the horse. She died a few days later.

Our Gang - Dorothy DeBorba Dorothy DeBorba was a regular in the early talking period of the Our Gang comedies. Recognizable by her Mary Pickford-type curls and hair ribbons, DeBorba was sometimes referred to as 'Echo' because she liked to repeat other characters' comments--or at least try. Years later DeBorba opined that the boys in the troupe always got the best lines. Yet she uttered some of the funniest lines in the long history of the Our Gang comedies. DeBorba's famous dialogue occurs in 'Love Business' when she tries to repeat the romantic lines lovesick Chubby was practising. Chubby: 'Oh, my darling, can you hear the pleas in my whispers?' Dorothy: 'Darling, I can hear the fleas in your whiskers.' Chubby: 'If love is like a rose, I will pick my rose in a bud.' Dorothy: 'If love is like a rose, I will stick my nose in the mud.' Chubby: 'My heart is filled with joy. I want to trip and dance.' Dorothy: 'My heart is filled with joy. I want to rip my pants.' DeBorba appeared in 24 Our Gang comedies from 1930 to 1933. She died from emphysema at age 85 on June 2, 2010.

Adding Machine 1905 Adding machines have been around for more than a century, but the old-fashioned 'crank' models had pretty much disappeared from offices by the late 1980s. William S. Burroughs (1855-1898) invented an adding and listing machine with a full keyboard in the early 1880s. He submitted a patent application in 1885, co-founded the American Arithmometer Co. in 1886 to produce the machine, and received a patent for his invention in 1888. After its Bankers' and Merchants' Registering Accountant machine failed in trials in 1890, the American Arithmometer Co. marketed its improved Burroughs Registering Accountant in 1892 for $475. In 1905, the company was renamed the Burroughs Adding Machine Co. In 1894, an article in a bankers' publication-- clearly referring to the Burroughs Registering Accountant--reported that 'An ingenious adding machine, recently introduced in Providence banks, is said to be infallible in results, and to do the work of two or three active clerks. Inclosed in a frame with heavy plate-glass panels, through which the working of the mechanism can be seen, the machine occupies a space of 11 by 15 inches and is nine inches high. On an inclined keyboard are 81 keys, arranged in nine rows of nine keys each. The printing is done through an inked ribbon.' Shown here is a Burroughs model from 1905. A seat is provided for the user! How quaint!

Tie A Yellow Ribbon - 1973 In 1972 songwriter Irwin Levine read a newspaper story about a prisoner who was overcome with angst as his pending release from jail drew nearer. He was deeply concerned that his wife would not want to remain married after his long absence from her. The prisoner, in advance of his release, asked his wife to provide a symbol of acceptance before he arrived home. Levine and co-writer L. Russell Brown took the story and turned it into one of the truly great songs from the 1970s: Tie A Yellow Ribbon (Round The Ole Oak Tree). It was recorded by Tony Orlando and Dawn, a group which hadn't had a major hit song in nearly three years. It sold three million copies in two weeks. The song revived the group and led to their getting a CBS variety show that began as a summer replacement program in 1974 and lasted for two seasons. Tie A Yellow Ribbon reached the top of the charts in April 1973 and remained there for a month. It had equal success in the UK where it sold more than one million copies and hit the top of the charts there too. According to one source, it was the second most covered song of the 1970s, trailing only Yesterday by the Beatles. It's a classic upbeat singalong tune that is a favorite at karaoke parties. Tie A Yellow Ribbon has frequently been used to welcome home troops from overseas since the 1980s. This clip shows Tony Orlando and Dawn performing it. I bet you can't listen to it without singing along!
