By Jerry Stewart - Vision Productions IT’S BEEN SAID THAT GEORGE WASHINGTON ACTUALLY HAD A SET OF FALSE TEETH MADE OF WOOD. THAT DOESN'T APPEAR TO BE TRUE.

By Jerry Stewart As we look forward to this new year, 2009, there is much talk as to where we will be this time next year as a people and as a nation.

George Washington's 1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation
WE ALL KNOW THE STORY OF THAT FIRST THANKSGIVING, BUT WHAT DO WE KNOW OF THE PILGRIMS AFTER THAT? AND WAS THERE A SECOND THANKSGIVING? OH YES.

MICKEY MANTLE, TED WILLIAMS, STAN MUSIAL, EDDIE MATTHEWS, HANK AARON. THOSE WERE GREAT DAYS TO WATCH BASEBALL. BUT, IN MY STUDIES OF FAMOUS AMERICANS, I HAVE COME TO HAVE THE HIGHEST RESPECT AND REGARD FOR ONE VERY SPECIAL MAN - MR. LOU GEHRIG.
