It's Tuesday, Jan. 23, National Handwriting Day. Happy birthday to pilot Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger (1951), whose January 2009 feat saved 155 lives by landing his disabled U.S. Airways jet in the Hudson River. Today in 1957, the Frisbee was born when Wham-O produced its plastic flying discs, originally known as 'Pluto Platters.' A great reference to origins of the flying disc can be found in 'Back to the Future III.' It's going to rain, with a high in the upper 40s. Write a nice note to someone you admire today:
