On this day in history…
*In 1879, James and John Ritty of Dayton, Ohio, patented the first cash register, known as Ritty’s Incorruptible Cashier.
*In 2008, Barack Obama, a Democratic U.S. senator from Illinois, was the first African American elected president of the United States, taking 338 electoral votes to 161 for Republican John McCain.

*comedian Kathy Griffin in 1960 (age 57)

*EMP Drills taking place by the Dept. of Defense on November 4-6th.
*The Attorney General of South Dakota has sent a request to the United States Supreme Court to review whether it can collect sales taxes from out-of-state internet retailers and 35 other states have backed their request. Typically, an online retailer only has to collect sales tax in states where they have a physical presence, such as a storefront or a distribution center. That loophole cost states $17.2 billion in lost sales taxes last year, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. And now they (meaning the states) want to collect.
*After 10 years, the iPhone still has the juice! USA Today is reporting that by the time the iPhone 10 went on sale Friday morning, buyers everywhere filled whole city blocks waiting in line at their nearest Apple Store.
Café Talk – How much was the biggest tip that you left a waitress/waiter while dining out?
Inspiration behind Cafe Talk is a article that I read in USA Today about the big $1,000 tip that a waitress received from Christie Teigen! We all chimed in and read a few social media responses to the question
We chatted with Jim Chuporak about his singing career, singing groups, and upcoming performance with the Christmas Celebration Broadcast. I can’t wait for you all to hear him!
