Thy coming in, thy going out,Thy rest, thy traveling about,The rough, the smooth,The bright, the dear,God bless thy new year.

For food he flies through miles of rain and snow and wind. The eagle, "NOT" the oyster is the emblem of America.

• During World War II in Hollywood, Lucille Ball came out of a dentist office with some temporary fillings in her teeth and was so astonished to hear them pick up some strange radio broadcasts.
