Quotes from the World for Friday 02/01/MMXIII

Hannah Arendt
Hannah Arendt (1906–1975), U.S. philosopher. The Human Condition, ch. 23 (1958).


Good Morning & Happy FNP!

I left home before breakfast & you know I get grouchy when that happens.

Today is Friday 02/01/V3.3 & it is Chicken Cordon Bleu Day.

I had to go to Security National Bank to sign a signature card for the Joslyn Castle Neighborhood Association.

I went to the store & got 3.78 liters of Robert’s Dairy 2% milk. Wolhner’s Grocery had some, yeah!!! I got me some Chicken Cordon Bleu, potatoes for smashing for linner tonight.

The word of the day is atavistic which is suggesting the characteristics of a remote ancestor or primitive type.

Congrats to Maureen & one other person on this list might become friends with Vernon J on facebook. Friend Request I deleted someone who speak non-english posts. I speak English so of course there was NO REASON for us to be friends. I don’t want to say that I’ll be deleting upwards of four additional people. BUT I could!!!

Speaking of dumb things, 1/2 of the car thefts are when ‘not so smart’ people like Anne Dyke leave their cars running with the keys in them. Can you please NOT be stupid.

The Atomic Weight of Arsenic is 74.92160 & the symbol is AS. Atomic Weight is the ratio of average mass of atoms of an element to 1/12 of the mass of an atom of carbon-12. IF you didn’t know that, (like me) you are learning things on The Official Blog of Vernon J.

You’re Welcome!

Well I hope you make it a good day.

Vernon J out!
