Thankyou Again Donna !

Some more Southpaw stuff.

At the risk of boring you! I am going to share some more about left handed people and facts that I think are of interest

Southpaw Charlie Chaplin was born to British music-hall entertainers, on April 16th 1889 .Often regarded as the single most influential artist in the history of motion pictures, this creative lefty was a star in both silent and sound films, as well as a director. During a twenty year self imposed exile Chaplin settled in Switzerland, but returned to America in 1972 to receive a special Oscar for career achievement.

In 1999, lefty Paul McCartney reminisced on BBC Radio that when he first auditioned for the Beatles, he was given a right handed guitar. He turned it upside down and began to play in reverse.’ I remember John looking at me, like, ’Wow, you know this guys got something here’”.

Lefty Lore, The ancient Celts, whose high priestesses worshipped nature, viewed the left-hand side as sacred, the source of all life.

Lefty Siblings, Don and Phil Everly, Caroline and John Kennedy Jn.Dennis and Randy Quaid.

Lefty fun fact,”Stewardesses” is the longest word in the entire English language that is typed using only the left hand.

 

Unless like me, you pick and peck with the index finger of the left hand, so there I will leave it today, have a good one, everyone with love …

The left forearm is supposed to be the most appetizing part of a human to eat.

I was surprised to discover that apparently we type more letters with our left hand than we do our right, unless, of course, your a right handed one finger typist!  I was watching someone on TV last night who typed with one finger and he was very fast indeed!

Love your left-handed facts, Jan, since there are so many lefties in my family.  Have yourself a good weekend.  Love xx Chris

Love the graphic and the left handed facts.  Four out of my five children are lefties!  I always thought that was so unsual.  The one right handed one is the one that doesn't speak to me....go figure!
Have a great weekend!
love,
Marie
