Today in Heritage History, June 13, 1989, Jerry Lee Lewis gets a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Lewis was accompanied to the event by his sister, Amy Winehouse. Jerry told the crowd that he was hoping to be accompanied to the event by his wife. but that she had a “real important” seventh grade science test that day. And lastly that even though the star was nice, what he would have preferred was to be taken off the Louisiana Sex Offenders list.

Party like it’s 2099…today is World Okra Day. For those who might not be familiar, okra is the South’s only major contribution to American culture…other than of course duct tape push-up bras. I’ve included a link here to a plethora of okra recipes. May I suggest the okra succotash? Because everyone knows that, a family that succotashes together…stays together.
