June 1

Monk John Cor First Scotch Whisky

What happened on June 1?

We bring a toast to monk John Cor, who recorded the first known batch of Scotch whisky on this day in 1495. Thank you, legend!

And you, pick up the phone or app-service and give someone you know a great feeling by saying something nice, as we celebrate Say something nice day today!

Many more legends coming up, as the party gets underway.
It’s even streamed live by CNN (Cable News Network) which, by the way, began broadcasting their streams in 1980.

Model & actress Marilyn Monroe (*1926) and co-model Heidi Klum (*1973) show off their dance moves. It’s stellar. And even visible from the Endeavour!
The legendary Space Shuttle made its final landing after 25 flights on this day in 2011.

Morgan Freeman (*1937) reads Charles Baudelaire’s classic ‘Les Fleurs du Mal‘ aloud in his deep, silky voice. This French masterpiece was published in 1857 and is loved ever since.

Comedian Amy Schumer (*1981) has enough material to write a book or two, too. Maybe she can write a few lines with actor Tom Holland (*1996), as soon as they stop uncorking bottles…
