It’s not often you see a reference to Genghis Khan, so we had to find out what that was about, and it was about this, from the Associated Press:

A woman from Poland, Maine is set to embark on a most unusual horse race.  Amanda Charlton Herbert is one eight Americans selected to compete in the toughest horse race in the world, the 620-mile Mongol Derby.  The Sun Journal reports she will be riding 28 semi-wild horses across desolate Mongolia, a country sandwiched between China and Russia. The race recreates Genghis Khan’s relay postal system from the 1200s.  It was similar to the American Pony Express several centuries later.  Herbert says the race is both a test of her endurance as well as a test of her ability to read and work with different horses.

Wake Up Song of the Day:   B.J. Thomas “(Hey, Won’t You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song“.   He is 75.   Everyone remembers “Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head”, Number One in 1969.   This was his other Number One Song from 1975.   The longest title for a Number One song until, some say, Stars on 45 had that medley in 1981 listing all the songs as the song title.   Others say no because the title should have been nothing more than “Stars on 45 Medley”.
