Fun Fact:

K-Tel invented the compilation album in 1966 with "25 Country Hits", followed by "25 Polka Greats". Both were huge sellers and set K-Tel on the road to riches.

By the late 90s K-Tel began to wane and people were no longer going to KMart to buy that album they saw on a TV commercial. Many people credit K-Tel to exposing bands that otherwise might never have been heard of by including a few "who the F is this?" songs on every compilation album. He was important among Canadian artists because Kives himself was Canadian, and K-Tel was based out of Canada, so it resulted in Canadian music (for better or worse) being exported all over the world.

By the mid-2000s the company had simply fallen back to living off the more than 20,000 songs it owns the licensing rights to, including “The Twist” by Chubby Checker, “What I Like About You” by The Romantics, “Tutti Frutti” by Little Richard, and “Surfin’ Bird” by The Trashmen.

K-Tel also began the "As Seen on TV" concept and sold zillions of products... here's how to order:

Philips Keves, who started it all, died last year.

The very first LP I ever owned (myself, not my parents) was Star Tracks. 1983. I wanted it because it had Electric Avenue on it, followed soon by Hot Tracks, which I wanted because it had Mr. Roboto on it.

Fun Fact:

As of today, there are at least 12 former members of the Nazi regime still wanted for trial on war crimes dating from World War 2. Some of them (such as Helmut Oberlander) have been located and are in some kind of legal process even today; in his case it's a matter of extradition from Canada.

All are 93 year of age or older. Some have been located but have been found unfit to stand trial due to their extremely advanced age, frail heath, and/or dementia.

Fun Fact #1:

The Great Hurricane of 1780 is likely the strongest tropical cyclone in history, or at least semi-modern history. It killed at least 22,000 people in the Caribbean.

How do we know how strong it was? Well, it stripped the bark off and then felled every tree in Barbados. Even the strongest modern hurricanes have never produced this phenomenon. But it was widely documented. Meteorologists have estimated that the sustained winds must have exceeded 200 mph, and possibly as much as 230 mph, far in excess of any other known tropical cyclone. Every single building on the island, even concrete fortresses, was destroyed.

It's scary to think that nature has the potential to produce even worse cyclones than what we've seen in the last 100 years.

Fun Fact #2:

The largest and most intense (by central pressure) cyclone in modern history is 1979's Typhoon Tip, which at it's peak had 190 mph winds (which a few storms have passed, at least briefly) but what is most remarkable was its size - at it's biggest, the diameter of the tropical cyclone winds was 1,380 miles - almost half the size of the lower 48. A storm of this size crashing into the east coast of the US at, say, Wilmington, NC, would swamp the entire coastline from South Florida to Massachusetts. The damage would probably knock the country into an economic depression and kills hundreds of thousands.

Labs are the best of all the dogs. I had two before i gave up bird hunting. My last lab was trained to run deer out of heavy brush.

Fun fact: I hauled at least 150 pounds of stuff in a single run with a luggage cart to our hotel room 1 block from the White House on Wednesday, and nobody seemed to notice or care.
