    Birthday: July 17, 1976 Nationality: American Famous: Quotes By Luke Bryan American Men Also Known As: Thomas Luther Sun Sign: Cancer Age: 42 Years Born in: Leesburg, Georgia, United States Famous as: Singer-Songwriter Spouse/Ex-: Caroline Boyer father: Tommy Bryan mother: LeClaire Bryan siblings: Chris Bryan, Kelly Bryan children: Tatum Christopher Bryan, Thomas Boyer Bryan City, States, Provinces & Districts: Georgia Net worth: $70 million education: Georgia Southern University Luke Bryan is one of the most renowned singers and songwriters of the current generation who have become a rage with his sensational music and melodies. Starting his career in music officially late (it was in 2007 that he made his plunge into the industry), Bryan did not take long to establish a strong foothold in the music scene. His debut came with his single ‘All My Friends Say’ which was outstandingly received by the audience. He followed it up with his debut studio album ‘I’ll Stay Me’. A couple of albums and singles old, Bryan first tasted worldwide success with his third studio album ‘Tailgates & Tanlines’. The album peaked at number one on the Top Country Albums chart and number two on the Billboard 200 chart. This was the beginning of his success story which continued to follow as his other two albums ‘Crash My Party’ and ‘Kill the Lights’ became highpoints of his career. What’s more, Bryan became the only country music artist to achieve six number one singles from one album in the history of the Billboard Country Airplay chart. Though Bryan has achieved much of his fame as a country musician and singer, it would be wrong to say that he has limited himself to it. Bryan has explored other genres like alternative rock as well. He has frequently incorporated elements of other music genres into his music. His journey as a musician and singer has been an inspiring one. Currently, he has sold more than seven million albums, 27 million tracks and has 16 No. 1 hits and back-to-back double-platinum albums. Luke Bryan married his college sweetheart, Caroline Boyer, on December 8, 2006. He first met her at Georgia Southern University. The couple has two sons, Thomas ‘Bo’ Boyer Bryan and Tatum ‘Tate’ Christopher Bryan. He also takes care of his nephew Tilden (Till) following the death of his sister and brother-in-law. He shares a passion for hunting and outdoors. He co-owns Buck Commander, sister company of Duck Commander. It even initiated a TV show for hunting enthusiasts. Bryan has supported numerous charities and causes, including the City of Hope and Red Cross. The causes Bryan supports are AIDS and HIV, cancer, children's disaster relief, health, and human rights.

    1821 Spain ceded Florida to the United States. 1898 Spain surrendered to the United States at Santiago, Cuba, ending the Spanish-American War. 1938 "Wrong Way Corrigan" took off from New York, purportedly aiming for California and landing in Ireland. 1945 President Harry Truman, Soviet leader Joseph Stalin and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill meet at the opening of the Potsdam Conference. 1955 Disneyland opened in Anaheim, Calif. 1975 The American Apollo and Soviet Soyuz spacecraft linked up for the first time. 1998 The last Russian Czar Nicholas II was buried 80 years after he and his family were executed by the Bolsheviks. ****************************************************************************************DAILY EXTRA******************************************** 1917.............................................The British royal family changed its name from the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha to Windsor amid anti-German senitment during World War I. British royal family change their name to Windsor - archive 1917 One hundred years ago, King George V changed the name of the British royal family from the German Saxe-Coburg and Gotha to the English Windsor. This name change saw every German reference and title being replaced with something British. The use of “Degrees, Styles, Dignities, Titles and Honours of Dukes and Duchesses of Saxony and Princes and Princesses of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, and all other German Degrees, Styles, Dignities, Titles, Honours and Appellations,” was to be discontinued. The decision to adopt Windsor as the family name came amid strong anti-German feeling during the first world war. But the turning point was public anger at air raids over London, and in particular the bombing of a school in the East End. On 13 June 1917, the Germans began daylight raids on Britain and in one of the first attacks 18 children were killed when a bomb fell directly onto Upper North Street School in Poplar. German Gotha bombers carried out the strike - by coincidence, the same name as the royal family. News of the proposed name change first appeared in the Manchester Guardian in mid-June 1917.

Oklahoma City, the state capital and seat of Oklahoma County, is the largest city in Oklahoma. It is located in the central part of the state on the North Canadian River. Oklahoma City sprang into being almost overnight. On April 22, 1889, the U.S. government opened the territory for settlement, and there was a rush across the border line to stake claims. A sprawling tent city sprang up near the Santa Fe railroad tracks, and within a short time Oklahoma City was a bustling town of 10,000. The city was incorporated in 1890 and replaced Guthrie as the state capital in 1910. Oil was discovered in the city in 1928, and petroleum production became a mainstay of the city's economy. Oklahoma City is the wholesale and distributing center for the state, and the city's stockyards are the largest stocker and feeder cattle market in the world. Following the decline of the energy sector, Oklahoma City is fostering a private entrepreneurial environment and a more diversified economy. Within the service sector, health services are projected to grow, followed by retail trade and business services. Nearby Tinker Air Force Base, one of the world's largest air depots, is a major city employer. In 1995 the city was the scene of a devastating terrorist bombing, which destroyed a federal office building and killed 168 people. The incumbent mayor, fourth-generation Oklahoman Mick Cornett, was reelected on March 2, 2010, to his third term, with 58% of the vote.

It consists of a blend of vegetable oils or meat fats (or a combination of both) mixed with milk and salt. It was developed in the late 1860s by the French chemist Hippolyte Mège-Mouries in a contest sponsored by Napoleon III for a butter substitute. Beef fat, known as oleo oil, was chiefly used at first, but later was supplemented by pork and other animal fats and by vegetable oils such as coconut oil, olive oil, and cottonseed oil. At present, most margarines contain only vegetable oils the margarine produced in the United States is usually made from corn, cottonseed, or soybean oil. The oils, refined, deodorized, and hydrogenated to the desired consistency, are churned or homogenized, usually with cultured skim milk, then chilled and reworked to incorporate salt and remove excess water. Margarine is similar in composition to butter, yields practically the same number of calories, and is easily digestible. It is commonly fortified with vitamin A and vitamin D. In the 1960s a new type of margarine was developed made of polyunsaturated fats (see cholesterol ). Margarine is sometimes called oleomargarine.
