  31. 1944 Tuesday: Emperor Hirohito’s government removed Japanese Premier Hideki Tojo from his post due to setbacks suffered by their country during World War II.  Meanwhile, in Nazi-controlled Europe, American forces fighting in France captured the important Normandy town of St. Lo.  On the Eastern Front, the Soviets are pushing hard at the Germans.  The Germans are clinging to positions in the western portion of the Soviet Union but the heady days of 1941 are long since gone and the Germans are the ones being encircled and crushed.

  58. 2017 Tuesday: Regarding ALLEGED misconduct in voting rights cases in the great state of Kansas, a disciplinary group that oversees attorneys in the state has announced that they are going to launch an investigation into the state’s Secretary of State Kris Kobach.   Once again, anyone fighting to protect voting rights in this country becomes a target of left-wing, Democratic-Socialist Party terrorists.  What a shame.
  59. 2018 Wednesday: After worldwide condemnation and a dramatic drop in the price of Tesla stock, Elon Musk apologizes for having slandered drowned Thai cave diver who helped rescue the Thai boys soccer team from the cave complex in which they had been trapped by rising floodwaters.  Musk had called the renowned diver, “Pedo guy,” inferring that he was somehow a pedophile.  What really had Musk bothered is that his attempt at rescuing the boys and their coach failed.  Meanwhile, Turkey ends its two-year state of emergency on this date.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0895 a 30” x 40” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “My Favorite View.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next Beach Boys album came out on February 01, 2000, the wonderful “The Greatest Hits Volume 3- the Best of the Brother Years 1970-1986.”  This release picks up where the previous ‘best of’ compilation left off: beginning with “Sunflower.”  The tunes included here feature (1) “Add Some Music to Your Day” (2) “Susie Cincinnati” (3) “This Whole World” (4) “Long Promised Road” (5) “Disney Girls (1957)” (6) “Till I Die” (7) “Surf’s Up” (8) “Marcella” and (9) “Sail On, Sailor.”  Next, we have (10) “The Trader” (11) “California Saga” (12) “Rock-and-Roll Music” (13) “It’s Okay” (14) “Honkin’ Down the Highway” (15) “Peggy Sue” (16) “Good Timin’” (17) “Goin’ On” (18) “Come Go With Me” (19) “Getcha Back” and (20) “California Dreamin’.”  This is a superb repackaging of the band’s music through one of its most prolific periods of growth, of innovation, and of genius.  We hope you will seek this one out at your favorite site for the best in rock-and-roll music.  Seek it out and enjoy.

Author: Chef Elvin C. McCardle, ACF-CWC

I began my career working as a busboy in 1963, move to washing pots in 1965, became a chef's apprentice in 1969 and have been a career professional ever since. I am still involved in professional foodservice as a consultant for food and beverage professionals. Like everyone else who writes for the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, Bakersfield, California, street artist and graffiti guru, Simone, has done cartoon caricatures of me, which is my personal photo now. We must keep our personal identities confidential as in this world of political animosity and the fact that we own restaurants, which are dependent upon public visitation, has forced us to journey down this road. We hope you understand. Thank you. Chef Elvin C. McCardle writes from Ventura, CA. Chef Elvin C. McCardle is now a Conservative Republican!
