Sending a special congratulations to that #SuperCouple my #mom and #dad on their 60th Wedding Anniversary! All daa best to the best #parents I ever had! ***A #weddinganniversary is the #anniversary of the date a #wedding took place. Traditional names exist for some of them: for instance, fifty years of marriage is called a "golden wedding anniversary" or simply a "golden anniversary" or "golden wedding". The #historic origins of wedding anniversaries date back to the Holy #Roman#Empire, when husbands crowned their wives with a silver wreath on their twenty-fifth anniversary, or vicennalia, and a gold wreath on the fiftieth. Later, principally in the twentieth century, commercialism led to the addition of more anniversaries being represented by a named #gift.
In the Commonwealth realms, one can receive a message from the monarch for 60th, 65th, and 70th wedding anniversaries, and any wedding anniversary after that. This is done by applying to Buckingham Palace in the #UnitedKingdom, or to the Governor-General's office in the other Commonwealth realms.
In #Australia, where one can receive a letter of congratulations from the Governor-General on the 50th and all subsequent wedding anniversaries; the Prime Minister, the federal Opposition leader, local members of both state and federal parliaments, and state Governors may also send salutations for the same anniversaries.
In #Canada, one can also receive a message from the Governor-General for the 50th anniversary, and every fifth anniversary after that.
In the United States, a couple can receive a greeting from the #President for any wedding anniversary on or after the 50th.
#RomanCatholics may apply for a #Papal blessing through their local diocese for wedding anniversaries of a special nature (25th, 50th, 60th, etc.). #love#phototheday ..brought to you by #DaaGodfatherOfSolar#DaaGodfather#SolarBrotherNo1#ClimateChange#LovePeaceSolar
#BlackPanther introduced#moviegoers to the fictional #African nation of #Wakanda, a place that was simultaneously #technologically advanced and steeped in tradition, choosing to isolate itself from the rest of the #world rather than deal with the planet’s other conflicts and chaos.
Now, Wakanda has decided to become a world player, and in #Avengers: Infinity War its capital becomes a frontline battleground to save the universe. That’s good for Earth (and other denizens of the #galaxy), but not so good for Wakandans who prefer peace and quiet. “The preservation of Wakanda has been at their core, and something their forefathers and foremothers put in place for a long time — and it’s worked!” says #DanaiGurira, who plays Okoye, the head of Wakanda’s security and chief of the Dora Milaje secret service. “They’re a deeply prosperous people for a reason, and now it’s about opening up the borders, and being generous to others beyond Wakanda.” The man who plays Black Panther, King T’Challa himself, says Wakanda will become the key to synching up the disparate other aspects of the #Marvel Cinematic Universe. “Each #movie has a different style, you know?” #ChadwickBoseman says. “So, what is a #CaptainAmerica movie, versus an #IronMan movie, versus the Black Panther movie, and how do you bring those things together? They’re different voices. So, how do those voices harmonize?” Now we know: with a little help from the land of Vibranium. #love#phototheday ..brought to you by #DaaGodfatherOfSolar#DaaGodfather#SolarBrotherNo1#ClimateChange#LovePeaceSolar

#CraigMack (born May 10, 1971-March 12, 2018) is an American #rapper, who gained fame on Puff Daddy's (#Diddy) #BadBoy#Entertainment #record label in the 1990s. Although his first single was released under the name MC EZ in 1988, he is best known for his 1994 hit single"#FlavaInYaEar", which was released under his real name. The remix of the single was the breakout appearance of #TheNotoriousBIG., as well as one of the first solo appearances by #BustaRhymes. The success of The Notorious B.I.G.'s debut album Ready to Dieovershadowed Mack's early success on the Bad Boy label.
Although Puff Daddy mentioned in a 1994 interview on #MTV's #YoMTVRaps that he was working with Mack on his second album, which was to be released sometime in January the following year, this proved to not be the case. Present at that interview (which also included The Notorious B.I.G.), Mack himself appeared puzzled by the statement. Mack did release a second album in 1997, but none of the singles charted and Mack was unable to repeat his success. In an interview, #BiggieSmalls says he appeared on the remix of "Flava In Ya Ear" for political reasons for Puffy. In 2002, Mack would appear in the music video for Puffy's single "I Need a Girl (Part One)". After a few attempts to be successful in the early-2000s, it was said that Mack was working on his third studio album in 2002, which was set to be release in 2007. The single "Mack Tonight" was released for the album in 2006. Mack then disappeared in the #hiphop industry until in 2012 a video was leaked on YouTube, saying he had joined a cult, surprising #family members and #fans. As of 2012, Mack resides in the Overcomer Ministry located in #Walterboro, #SouthCarolina.

National Napping Day is observed annually the day following the return of daylight saving time. National Napping Day provides everyone with the opportunity to have a #nap and catch up on the hour of sleep they lost due to the spring forward time change.
Mid-afternoon naps are an integral part of most #cultures, and #scientifically proven to be good for you.
A needed rest can make you feel better and also improve your #mood. After having the extra amount of sleep, a person will notice that they will be more #productive and #energetic.
Numerous studies have shown that short 10-20 minute naps are the most effective when midday fatigue hits. #Improvements in alertness, productivity and mood have all been shown to improve with this type of #snooze.
Though there are some of us who are just not the napping kind, if you can reap those #benefits, find a #cozyspot for 10 minutes or so on National Napping Day.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Take a #relaxing nap and use #NationalNappingDay to post on social media.
William Anthony, Ph.D., a #BostonUniversity Professor and his #wife, Camille Anthony, created National Napping Day in 1999 as an effort to spotlight the #health benefits to catching up on quality #sleep. “We chose this particular Monday because Americans are more ‘nap-ready’ than usual after losing an hour of #sleep to #daylight saving time,” Anthony said in B.U.’s press release. #love#phototheday #whisky#cigsrs#women ..brought to you by #DaaGodfatherOfSolar#DaaGodfather#SolarBrotherNo1#ClimateChange#LovePeaceSolar

Sending out congratulations to my pastor to #RevClintonMiller. Today is his 17th anniversary at #BMBC100. *** #BK reports the following:
Brown Memorial Baptist Church has been under the helm of a neighborhood kid. Born and raised in #Brooklyn and a graduate of nearby #BishopLoughlinHighSchool, Pastor Clinton Miller has lead his 800+ strong #ClintonHill, Brooklyn congregation with a steady hand and a focus on community. This has proven to be no small feat, as the local #realestate market is now a driving force of change in this area.
A significant amount of seniors can no longer afford the rents of their apartments, where they’ve lived for years, raising #families. Displaced by both rising costs and lack of #affordablehousing, many aging church members have opted to relocate out of state after retirement, while many choose to remain. (40% of #BMBC’s current membership is 65 and over)
One of the areas that we intend on working in is affordable housing,” says Pastor Miller, “specifically for seniors.” Partnerships and alliances, such as those with East Brooklyn Congregations (#EBC) and the #NYPD keep the church in active discussions regarding urban planning and responsible land development, along with improving trust and relations between the community and local law enforcement.
A large aging congregation also requires basic general care and services, such as assistance with shopping and maintaining a #household, handling financial matters, and tending to good health practices: Brown Memorial has an HIV AIDS ministry that conducts testing regularly. Pastor Miller notes recent statistics state the fastest growing demographic to contract HIV is senior citizens, so BMBC offers considerable HIV-prevention education through workshops and seminars.
Brown Memorial turns 100 in 2016; one #milestone celebration was participation in the New York Conservancy’s Sacred Sites Tour in May, when the church invited the public to view the sanctuary and learn all about its #architectural#history. #love @BrownMemorialBC #phototheday ..brought to you by #DaaGodfatherOfSolar#DaaGodfather#cake#icecream#SolarBrotherNo1#ClimateChange#LovePeaceSolar
#March9 the death of #FrankWhite! ***After keeping viewers in suspense for a full week, episode 2 of Unsolved, titled "#NobodyTalks," opens with one of hip-hop’s most celebrated #ceremonies; a rapper’s label chaining day. Suge Knight (Dominic L. Santana) enters the frame and places a diamond encrusted #DeathRowRecords chain over the neck of a presumably unknown rapper. Suge then menacingly states that Death Row is a way of life, and all altercations against the label are to be handled using the deadly “blood in, blood out” code. The code is almost put to the test immediately afterwards with that same rapper getting into a clash of colors with rival Crips. This introduction of gang affiliations adds yet another layer of uncertainty to the unraveling case.
The original 1997 investigation duo, detective Poole and detective Miller confirm that a #trip to #LasVegas is in order, as they’ve come to realize the connection between #Biggie and#Tupac’s murders is overwhelmingly clear and analyzing the Tupac’s murder case is unquestionably worthwhile. Fast forward to the reopened investigation of 2006, and assigned pointman Greg Kading has assembled a team of varying #justicedepartment officers who have #boiled Biggie’s death down to three logical possibilities. First was that he was killed by Suge Knight and the Bloods in retaliation for Tupac’s murder, second was that Suge worked alongside the #LAPD to get rid of Biggie and third was that a handful of Southside Crips did the deed over Biggie’s unpaid debts. They opt to start digging into the Southside Crips and see where it leads. #love#rap#cigars#music#phototheday ..brought to you by #DaaGodfatherOfSolar#DaaGodfather#SolarBrotherNo1#ClimateChange#LovePeaceSolar
