America   Sister Golden Hair A very good live version. The song is about a man trying to get up the courage to take his girlfriend to the altar to marry, however he is plagued by self-doubts. He pleads for her understanding and re-affirms his love and affection for her, but he says he is not yet ready for the altar. She is only identified as "Sister Golden Hair." He asks her to meet him half-way, which is taken to be a proposal that they live together. The song, while immensely popular, was criticized in conservative circles as a plea for common law marriage and living in sin. This may also have been why the song was so popular with the younger generation. 1975

Marriage Proposal Rejected At Basketball Game I've been waiting for this to happen at one of these public marriage proposals: At a February 13, 2008 basketball game, a Houston Rockets fan asks his girlfriend to marry him--and she says no! (On the bright side, the Rockets did beat the Sacramento Kings 89-87 that night. I'm sure that cheered up the poor fellow!)

ZIP Codes Invented 1963 American postal addresses used to be the essence of simplicity: street address, city, and state. In 1946 numbers were added to the addresses of large cities to designate delivery zones. For example, an address might include 'Minneapolis 16, Minnesota'--meaning the mail was going to delivery zone #16 in that city. By the early 1960s a more general system was needed. On July 1, 1963 non-mandatory five-digit ZIP codes were announced for the whole country. ZIP is an acronym for 'Zone Improvement Plan.' The numerals in the ZIP codes progressively got larger as the addresses moved westward. ZIP codes became mandatory for second-class and third-class mail in 1967. Robert Moon, an employee of the post office, is considered the father of the ZIP code. He submitted his proposal in 1944 while working as a postal inspector. In 1983, large delivery centres had an additional four digits preceded by a hyphen added to their ZIP codes.

Leap Year Tradition According to a custom that emerged in the British Isles sometime in the nineteenth century, a woman may propose marriage to a man during a leap year. This postcard from 1908 (a leap year) shows a female about to take advantage of the 366-day year and land her man with a butterfly net.

Stockwell Day-Doris Day Petition One of Canada's most popular homegrown TV shows is a CBC comedy program called This Hour Has 22 Minutes. One of the show's most fondly remembered moments was the "Stockwell Day Petition." The sketch aired during the 2000 Canadian federal election campaign, and consisted of a staged rant by host Rick Mercer. During that particular federal election, Stockwell Day, who was then the leader of the Canadian Alliance Party, proposed a mechanism to call for a referendum. Day proposed that a petition on ANY subject which gathered at least 350,000 signatures from voting-age citizens (about 3% of Canada's eligible voters) would automatically trigger a national referendum. Mercer decided to put Day's poorly thought out idea to the test: His "rant" asked viewers to log on to the show's website and sign an online petition demanding the Alliance Party leader change his first name to Doris--thus making him Doris Day. The show's producers claimed to have obtained in excess of 1.2 million online signatures--although there was no way of telling how many of those who signed the online petition were actually eligible voters. The stunt got huge publicity in Canada and even made some international news programs. The petition had no effect on Alliance Party policy, though, despite clearly demonstrating how absurd Day's proposal was. Day did, however, take the petition in stride. When asked about it by a reporter, Day gave a very appropriate response: "Que será, será!"
