The Water Tour.
I need an approximate head count for how many people are planning on attending. THERE WILL BE HANDOUTS!
Here is the deal - The tour will be at 950 Maple Ave at 6:30ish. We can meet at The Kurth about 6:15 and caravan over (so we don't get lost in the heavy Columbus traffic) or you can go right to the Water Place.
Depending how long this takes afterword DJ and I are going to the Visitor Center for a free art exhibit by Will Gillmore and then to the Kurth. All are invited to all events. The art exhibit is from 6 to 8?
Depression and Suicide around Christmas.
It seems this time of year newspapers and television start to come out with articles and news about how this time of year makes people depressed and suicides numbers are high.
Odd - when you look at the facts this time of year is actually the LOWEST time of the year for depression and suicides. In a study over the last 10 years, early spring and late fall are the times people get depressed. Christmas time, ODDLY, is when most people are actually the cheeriest and suicide rates are at their very lowest.
Yet another myth that seems to have taken hold and is perpetuated by the media.
On this day in 1941 spare tires were outlawed because of the shortage of rubber due to WWII.
Also in 1941 Germany declared war on the United States.
In 1972 man landed on the moon for the last time. After searching and once again finding no cheese America decided that the moon trips were fruitful.
Boll Weevil Honored
On December 11, 1919, the citizens of Enterprise, Alabama erected a monument to the boll weevil, the pest that devastated their fields but forced residents to end their dependence on cotton and to pursue mixed farming and manufacturing.
The infestation led to the introduction of the peanut—an alternative crop popularized by the Tuskegee Institute's George Washington Carver. Peanut cultivation not only returned vital nutrients to soils depleted by cotton cultivation, but also proved a successful cash crop for local farmers.
And remember - If your parents never had children, chances are you won’t either.
Have a Thursday
