As Elvis said "Thank you, thank you very much"

As I am not the only one who was "Borned" on this date, and it is a notable day for other historical facts, here are a few to share this day; Some I remember, others are a little fuzzy in my mind.
Birthdays;
1821 Rufus Barringer, American Brigadier General (Confederate Army)
1837 Charles Garrison Harker, American Brigadier General (Union Army)
1924 Alexander Haig Jr, Bala-Cynwyd Pa, US Secretary of State
1968 Lucy Liu, American actress
Noted events;
1804 Napoleon Bonaparte is crowned Emperor of France in Paris
1823 President James Monroe declares his "Monroe Doctrine", a US foreign policy regarding Latin America
1845 Manifest Destiny: US President James K. Polk announces to Congress that the United States should aggressively expand into the West
1976 Fidel Castro becomes President of Cuba
1927 1st Model A Ford sold, for $385
1939 British Imperial Airways & British Airways merge to form BOAC
1939 NY's La Guardia Airport began operations as an airliner from Chicago lands, 1 minute after midnight
1941 Japanese Marshal Admiral Yamamoto sends his fleet to Pearl Harbor
2013 "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug", 2nd film in the Hobbit series, premieres in Los Angeles
2014 Stephen Hawking claims that Artificial Intelligence could be a "threat to mankind" and spell the end of the human race
And since this is the year of "66" for me, to close let's all sing together now;

If you ever plan to motor west
Travel my way, take the highway that is best
Get your kicks on route sixty-six

It winds from Chicago to L.A.
More than two thousand miles all the way
Get your kicks on route sixty-six

Now you go through Saint Louis
Joplin, Missouri
And Oklahoma city looks oh so pretty
You see Amarillo
Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona
Don't forget Winona
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernandino
Won't you get hip to this timely tip
Go and take that California trip
Get your kicks on route sixty-six


And if you have gotten this far in this diatribe, Thanks. Wayne

P.S. Get your checkrides in fellas'.

Well I didn't even think of it that way. I am going to give it a fly.
Thanks all,

EDIT; Submitted bid, but will have to use a DC-6 as my DC-3 is grounded in P3DV4.
EDIT; I found a freeware(ugh) C47; Manfred Jahn's C-47 not many textures

Join me and fly one or all. Joinfs viewtopic.php?f=19&t=19720
