Curious Death of President Harding 1923 On the evening of August 2, 1923, Warren G. Harding, the 29th president of the United States, died suddenly in a room at the Palace Hotel in San Francsico. He was 57 years old. Harding was in the midst of a west coast trip, but he had taken ill as his train rolled through Seattle. Almost immediately, the rumors surrounding his passing began. There was no official cause of Harding's death. Some sources claim it was a fatal case of food poisoning; others claim it was a heart attack or a stroke. Despite his wife and his nurses being frequently in and out of the room, the time of Harding's death could not be pinned down any more specifically than between 7 and 7:30 p.m. Florence Harding had her husband's body embalmed and ready for a funeral train back to Washington within an hour of the president's death, thus no autopsy could be performed. (California had no mandatory autopsy laws at the time.) Although Harding was a perfect candidate for poor health--he was a heavy smoker and drinker, plagued by stress, who rarely exercised--there are those who think Mrs. Harding had something to do with her husband's demise. According to the conspiracy theorists, Mrs. Harding either wanted to spare Warrren G. the shame of the scandals about his administration that were soon to surface--or she took revenge over her hubby's numerous extra-marital trysts. Those who don't think anything was amiss point to Harding's declining health at the hands of a quack homeopathic physician and Harding's generally poor living habits. Maybe Harding himself sensed the end was near: Before leaving for the west coast, Harding had written a new will. He had also curiously sold the Marion (OH) Star, his hometown newspaper, which he had bought with the intent of running it after he retired from politics.

Peggy Sue Wow, I'm only in my 40s, but it seems hard to believe Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and the Big Bopper have been gone for over 50 years now! This is an appearance The Crickets made on Arthur Murray Dance Party in 1957. Some American Bandstand compilations include this video, despite the fact that it wasn't actually performed on the show. According to Dick Clark, Buddy Holly and the Crickets only appeared once on AB, in the fall of 1958, playing the song Heartbeat, and that the footage of that single event was destroyed sometime in the 1970s. Sad news indeed. That AB episode was Buddys last TV performance before the tragedy.

Longest-owned restaurant in America question mark Okay, friends, I'm going to try this again, because I just found out that the reason no one could access this post was because of the question mark in the title. Here's a challenge for you. In my community there is a restaurant called Ramon's Cactus Patch, and it's been owned and operated by Ramon Sanchez since 1938. I admit that most of the work is done today by his son Roque (pronounced Rocky) and his daughter Ramona, but Ramon, in his mid-nineties, is still the boss! Can you come up with a restaurant still operating with the same owner for a longer time? Not just the same family, but the same individual. The Cactus Patch has been in its present location since 1962.

Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes The singer of this song has a special distinction in the world of rock & roll. His name is Tony Burrows, and he may be one of the most famous / anonymous characters in music history. He was a session singer in England, and in 1970, he had the distinction of singing lead on 4 hit songs in a few month span. “Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes” by Edison Lighthouse, “My Baby Loves Lovin’” by White Plains, “United We Stand” by Brotherhood Of Man, and “Gimme Dat Ding” by The Pipkins. Music videos were produced for White Plains and Edison Lighthouse, but the studios did the Milli Vanilli move by having actors lip sync the parts. This video shows Tony singing live, and as anybody who has seen the color videos for both songs on youtube can attest, those singers look nothing like Mr. Burrows. He also had the opportunity to perform 3 different songs by 3 different groups on January 29th of 1970 on BBC’s “Top Of The Pops. On a final note, his last Top 40 contribution came in 1974 when he fronted the band First Class, which gave us the song “Beach Baby” He still performs today, but not too many people would know who Tony Burrows is if he came to their town. That is, until he started singing.

Hal Chase - Crooked Ballplayer In the early years of the twentieth century, many ballplayers supplemented their paltry incomes by doing favors for gamblers. No one was more brazen in throwing games than first baseman Hal Chase. The handsome Chase was undeniably the best fielding first baseman in the major leagues, but his penchant for deliberately losing games for his gambler friends with timely errors made Chase wear out his welcome on numerous clubs. Fans often yelled, 'What's the odds, Hal?' whenever he took the field.
