Today, September 17th, in History
1916 Germany’s “Red Baron,” Manfred von Richthofen , wins his first aerial combat. the WWI flying ace German fighter pilot with the Imperial German Army Air Service (Luftstreitkräfte) during the First World War. He is considered the ace-of-aces of the war, being officially credited with 80 air combat victories. he was regarded as a national hero in Germany, and respected and admired even by his enemies. Charlie Brown's beagle Snoopy frequently fantasized about being a World War I flying ace. In his daydreams, he imagined his dog house to be a Sopwith Camel and carried a personal grudge against the Red Baron, whom he imagined to be his own character's arch enemy. In spite of Snoopy's best effort, however, the "Baron" always shot him down with little difficulty, leading Snoopy to curse the Baron for his success and swear to one day shoot him down.
1976 The Space Shuttle is unveiled to the public. The first of four orbital test flights occurred in 1981, leading to operational flights beginning in 1982. Five complete Shuttle systems were built and used on a total of 135 missions from 1981 to 2011, Four fully operational orbiters were initially built: Columbia, Challenger, Discovery, and Atlantis. Of these, two were lost in mission accidents: Challenger in 1986 and Columbia in 2003, with a total of fourteen astronauts killed. A fifth operational (and sixth in total) orbiter, Endeavour, was built in 1991 to replace Challenger.

1923 Hank Williams, Sr., influential Country singer, songwriter and guitarist (“Lonesome Blues,” “Your Cheatin’ Heart”.)
1935 Ken Kesey, author (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Sometimes a Great Notion) "100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005" Set in an Oregon psychiatric hospital, the narrative serves as a study of the institutional processes and the human mind as well as a critique of behaviorism and a celebration of humanistic principles. It was adapted into the Broadway play One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Dale Wasserman in 1963. Bo Goldman adapted the novel into a 1975 film directed by Miloš Forman, which won five Academy Awards. The novel is a direct product of Kesey's time working the graveyard shift as an orderly at a mental health facility in Menlo Park, California. Not only did he speak to the patients and witness the workings of the institution, but he voluntarily took psychoactive drugs, including mescaline and LSD, as part of Project MKUltra.
Project MKUltra—sometimes referred to as the CIA's mind control program—was the code name given to an illegal program of experiments on human subjects, designed and undertaken by the United States Central Intelligence Agency. Experiments on humans were intended to identify and develop drugs and procedures to be used in interrogations and torture, in order to weaken the individual to force confessions through mind control. MKULTRA was concerned with "the research and development of chemical, biological, and radiological materials capable of employment in clandestine operations to control human behavior." The program consisted of some 149 subprojects which the Agency contracted out to various universities, research foundations, and similar institutions. At least 80 institutions and 185 private researchers participated. Because the Agency funded MKUltra indirectly, many of the participating individuals were unaware that they were dealing with the Agency

Moxify! The Museum of You
Wash all the bed parts, comforter, dust ruffle, mattress pads (get a new one), pillows (or get new ones – every two years) should at least be washed every three months.
Vacuum and then flip your mattress. If you've got a pillow top, just spin it 180 degrees so the current head is now at the foot.
Deep clean the rugs
And vacuum the window treatments.
Bring out the winter edition of bedding treatments, wash before putting them on so they are fresh.
Moxify! The Museum of you:
So many people when they create their living spaces simply want it to be done so they head to the store and randomly pick out stuff to cover the walls and flat spaces so it looks done
I've been in so many amazing homes that clearly had million dollar decorating budgets and are filled with loads of amazing expensive things, but nothing has anything to do with the owners. There is no connection, no history, no meaning and brings no joy, someone just said that it would look good or looked expensive, but it makes no sense considering who lives there. Not their style, interests, nothing about them other than the token professional family portraits.
