8/20/18 – American Royalty

CURRENT EVENTS

American Royalty

If you ever wonder what makes Americans unique in the world?

I think one reason is because we choose our own royalty.

In 1977, our King died on August 16 and now our Queen has died on August 16.

Coincidence?

    • Thank you Nanette for commenting. Yes, Boyardee is a real person. His birth name was Ettore Boiardi, but he changed the spelling of his last name to make it easier for English speaking people to pronounce. And I agree with you, Toni Basil did it better. It is hard to remake a classic, but Taylor gets a nice try in my book.
