• Everyone seems to have a patron saint, including tavern owners, beggars and drunkards. This honor belongs to St. Martinmas, a noted philanthropist who supposedly hid in a barn to avoid being made a bishop. Because a honking goose gave away his location, many Europeans eat roast goose during the Feast of St. Martinmas on November 11. • Is matrimony on your mind? According to an old proverb, “Marry in September’s shine, your living will be rich and fine.” However, “If in October you do marry, love will come, but riches tarry.” Now, “If you wed in bleak November, only joys will come, remember.” • Thanks to Alfred Gerald Caplin we have Sadie Hawkins Day on November 15. Alfred was more commonly known as Al Capp, the creator of the “L’il Abner” comic strip. In 1937, Capp pictured November 15 as a day when the unmarried women of the fictional community of Dogpatch could aggressively go after the town’s available bachelors. Dogpatch’s Sadie Hawkins was dubbed “the homeliest gal in the hills,” waiting interminably for men to “come a-courtin’.” Her father, a community leader, decreed the first annual celebration in the comic strip, and it soon became a popular event across the country.

• November 5 is celebrated in England as Guy Fawkes Day, commemorating the anniversary of the Gunpowder Plot, a conspiracy to blow up Parliament and King James I along with it. The plot was an uprising of English Catholics, who believed they were being persecuted unjustly for practicing their religion. Thirtysix barrels of gunpowder were hidden in a cellar under the House of Lords and guarded by Fawkes. Thirteen conspirators devised the plot, and many were killed outright, while others were imprisoned or executed. Fawkes was sentenced to be hanged but jumped off the scaffold and broke his neck. While this doesn’t appear to have been a good idea, it saved him the agony of the drawing and quartering that was to follow the noose breaking his neck. Today, the English celebrate with fireworks and bonfires, with Guy Fawkes’ effigy burned on the fire.

OVERCOMING THE ODDS: EDDIE C. BROWN

This week, Tidbits explores the lowly beginnings and life of Eddie Brown, founder of one of America’s most successful financial firms. • The cards were seemingly stacked against Eddie C. Brown, born to an unmarried 13-yearold in 1940. But the world was destined to discover the tenacity and strong will to succeed possessed by this remarkable individual. Brown was taken to live with his grandparents in a home without modern conveniences. His grandfather was a Florida citrus grove worker, and his grandmother worked at a greenhouse. • At age 12, Brown worked with his uncle as a moonshine runner, making deliveries on the back roads of Florida in an old Ford pickup. His grandmother stepped in to turn Brown’s life in a new direction. She began taking him to the city, showing him businessmen in suits, all the while impressing upon him the need for a good education in order to wear those suits and sit behind a desk. Brown became committed at that young age to pursue a higher education. • Brown hit a roadblock with the death of his grandmother when he was 13, and he was sent back to live with his young mother. His teachers encouraged him to take vocational industrial arts classes, but his mother and a family friend guided him into the necessary college prep academic classes. With excellent grades, he graduated from high school at age 16 near the top of his class.
