The Zoo TV Tour was a worldwide concert tour by rock band U2 from 1992 to 1993. Staged in support of their 1991 album Achtung Baby, the tour visited arenas and stadiums in North America and Europe. Comprising five legs and 157 shows, the tour began in Lakeland, Florida, on February 29, 1992 and ended in Tokyo, Japan, on December 10, 1993. The tour alternated between North America and Europe for the first four legs before visiting Oceania and Japan. It was the highest-grossing North American tour of 1992, and overall sold around 5.3 million tickets and grossed US$151 million.
Achy Breaky Heart (is a song written in 1990 by Don Von Tress. Originally published in a recording by The Marcy Brothers under the title "Don't Tell My Heart" in 1991, it was later recorded by Billy Ray Cyrus and released on his debut album Some Gave All in 1992. The song is Cyrus' debut single and signature song. It became the first single ever to achieve triple Platinum status in Australia and also 1992's best-selling single in the same country. In the United States, it became a crossover hit on pop and country radio, peaking at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topping the Hot Country Songs chart, becoming the first country single to be certified Platinum since "Islands in the Stream" by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton in 1983. The single topped in several countries, and after being featured on Top of the Pops in the United Kingdom, peaked at number three on the UK Singles Chart. It was Cyrus' biggest hit single in the U.S. until he was featured on "Old Town Road" by Lil Nas X, which peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2019. The music video for the song led to the explosion of the line dance into the mainstream. The song is considered by some as one of the worst songs of all time, featuring at number two in VH1 and Blender's list of the "50 Most Awesomely Bad Songs Ever." However, it is recognized as part of a transitional period in country music where Cyrus brought renewed interest to a dying breed of music among younger listeners)

Years ago I actually bought my Mom tickets for Mother’s Day to see him in concert.
Becker premiered on CBS on November 2, 1998. It was an American sitcom television series that originally aired on CBS from November 2, 1998 to January 28, 2004, broadcasting 129 episodes. Set in the New York City borough of the Bronx, the show starred Ted Danson as John Becker, a cantankerous doctor who operates a small practice and is constantly annoyed by his patients, co-workers, and friends, and practically everything and everybody else in his world. Despite everything, his patients and friends are loyal because Becker genuinely cares about them.
Comment: This was definitely one of my favorite shows at the time. A great cast of characters and Ted Danson at his best.
The "Carlton" (is the famous dance that Carlton Banks often does while listening to the song "It's Not Unusual" by Tom Jones. The first time Carlton does this dance is in the Season 2 episode "Christmas Show" (although the first time he does it to "It's Not Unusual" is in the Season 3 episode "Asses to Ashes" aired on November 16, 1992). Although he typically does the dance by himself, Will joins him for the dance in the series finale "I, Done (Part 2)", although Carlton continues to dance long after Will stops)
Did you know........The Carlton Dance was inspired by two different dances: One that Courteney Cox does after Bruce Springsteen pulls her up on stage in the music video for "Dancing in the Dark" and one that Eddie Murphy does during his "White Man Dance" routine from Eddie Murphy Raw.
During Week 4 of Season 19 of the ABC dance competition Dancing with the Stars, Alfonso Ribeiro (who was a contestant) peformed The Carlton Dance with his partner Witney Carson and scored a perfect 40, receiving 10s from all four judges. Ribeiro went on to win that season of Dancing with the Stars.
Alfonso Ribeiro, best remembered as Carlton in "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air", whipped out the ace card in Dancing With The Stars. Perfect 10s. Just give hi...
That was really fun to watch!
Dances with Wolves is a 1990 American epic Western film starring, directed, and produced by Kevin Costner. It is a film adaptation of the 1988 book of the same name by Michael Blake that tells the story of Union Army Lieutenant John J. Dunbar (Costner), who travels to the American frontier to find a military post, and of his dealings with a group of Lakota Indians. Much of the dialogue is spoken in Lakota with English subtitles. It was shot from July to November 1989 in South Dakota and Wyoming, and translated by Doris Leader Charge, of the Lakota Studies department at Sinte Gleska University. The film earned favorable reviews from critics and audiences, who praised Costner's directing, the performances, screenplay, and production values. The film was a box-office hit, grossing $424.2 million worldwide, making it the fourth-highest grossing film of 1990, and is the highest-grossing film for Orion Pictures. The film was nominated for 12 Academy Awards at the 63rd Academy Awards and won seven, including Best Picture, Best Director for Costner, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Film Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Original Score, and Best Sound Mixing. The film also won the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture – Drama. It is one of only three Westerns to ever win the Oscar for Best Picture, the other two being Cimarron (1931) and Unforgiven (1992).

European Union (was founded as a result of the Maastricht Treaty on Nov. 1, 1993. It is a political and economic union between European countries that sets policies concerning the members’ economies, societies, laws, and, to some extent, security. To some, the EU is an overblown bureaucracy that drains money and compromises the power of sovereign states. For others, it is the best way to meet challenges smaller nations might struggle with—such as economic growth and negotiations with larger nations—and worth surrendering some sovereignty to achieve. Despite many years of integration, opposition remains strong, but states have acted pragmatically, at times, to sustain the union)
Of course there was a recent shake up to the EU....................Brexit was the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community at 23:00 31 January 2020 GMT. The UK is the first and so far only country to have left the EU, after 47 years of having been a member state of the EU and its predecessor, the European Communities, since 1 January 1973. It continued to participate in the European Union Customs Union and European Single Market during a transition period that ended on 31 December 2020 at 23:00 GMT.

Gargoyles ((also known as Gargoyles: The Goliath Chronicles for season 3) is an American animated television series produced by Walt Disney Television and distributed by Buena Vista Television, and originally aired from October 24, 1994, to February 15, 1997. The series features a species of nocturnal creatures known as gargoyles that turn to stone during the day. After spending a thousand years in an enchanted petrified state, the gargoyles (who have been transported from medieval Scotland) are reawakened in modern-day New York City, and take on roles as the city's secret night-time protectors. Gargoyles was noted for its relatively dark tone, complex story arcs, and melodrama; character arcs were heavily employed throughout the series, as were Shakespearean themes)
Haiti elects first democratically elected President - Jean-Bertrand Aristide - in 1990. Jean-Bertrand Aristide is a former Haitian priest and politician and a proponent of liberation theology. However his ambitious reformist agenda worried the elites, and in September of the following year he was overthrown by the military, led by Raoul Cédras, in the 1991 Haitian coup d'état. In September 1994, the United States negotiated the departure of Haiti's military leaders and the peaceful entry of 20,000 US troops under Operation Uphold Democracy. This enabled the restoration of the democratically elected Jean-Bertrand Aristide as president, who returned to Haiti in October to complete his term.
Jean-Bertrand Aristide returns to Haiti
