On this date in 1927, Charles Lindbergh took off for Paris from Roosevelt Field in Long Island, N.Y., above the Spirit of St. Louis on the first nonstop solo flight across the Atlantic.  On the same date 12 years later, regular trans-Atlantic air service began as a Pan American Airways plane took off from Port Washington, N.Y. bound for Europe.  Both events presaged by more than half a century the merger of NYSE Group and Euronext, which created the first global financial exchange and technologies company and continues to employ your humble blogger today – NYT

OK, so I kinda added that last part about us, got a little carried away by the whole transatlantic thing, but why should the historians have all the fun?

It's also Joe Cocker’s birthday (pictured at Woodstock, 1969).  So write your baby a letter, unchain your heart, come in through the bathroom window, get a little help from your friends, and have a great Friday and weekend.  You deserve it because you are so beautiful. To me-e-e-e.
