Litchfield Park resident Robertson, 51, jokes about the May 30 accident even as he is recovering from injuries.He was having lunch with a mentor and fellow psychic when the car plowed through the window at Silks Country Kitchen in Virgil, Ontario. Robertson and his friend were seated at a table by the window.The crash was captured on a restaurant surveillance camera, which Robertson has posted on his Facebook page along with updates on how he is doing."I see my table flying up. My friend disappears behind the table. Next thing you know I'm flying in the air and then I land. ... The car grabbed my leg and pull me back down. It pinned my leg under the car in a very weird position,'' he recalled, in an interview with The Arizona Republic."My leg was in the shape of an 'L.' My left foot was on its side and I have no idea how it wasn't snapped off." With an injured left rib, swollen leg, bruises throughout his body and whiplash in his neck, Robertson is amazed he is still alive.Robertson, who presents live psychic shows, just finished a nine-show Ontario tour.Link: http://www.11alive.com/news/nation-now/arizona-psychic-injured-after-car-hit-restaurant



Today is National Flag Day

June 14th is National Flag Day! On this day in 1777 the Second Continental Congress passed a resolution, which designated the first official American Flag. The first American Flag had thirteen stars and thirteen stripes, one for each of the original colonies. Many know this flag as the Betsy Ross Flag, but it is uncertain whether or not Betsy Ross really created the design.Over the years, America has had twenty-seven different flags. The one we use today became our emblem in 1960.The first known Flag Day was in 1885, held by schoolteacher Bernard J. Cigrand. President Woodrow Wilson eventually made it an official holiday a few decades later in 1916.To celebrate Flag Day, wear your red white and blue and decorate your house with the American Flag. And, while you’re feeling patriotic, get started on sending invites for your 4th of July party!
