      Events January 14

      1873 - ‘Celluloid’ was registered as a trademark. It was the wonderful invention of John Hyatt in 1869. While waiting for a patent, he used the celluloid to wrap his Christmas presents. Then he got the idea that somebody might be able to make movies with the stuff.

      1882 - A country club named The Country Club became the first country club in the United States -- in Brookline, MA. Of course, playing golf in mid-January in New England didn’t work out, so hunters went out to pick off the wildlife right off the fairways.

      Life is short!
      Break the rules!
      Forgive quickly!
      Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably.
      And never regret anything that made you smile.
      The best things in life are free until the government finds out and taxes it.
