Mornin' all!

Foggy, chilly, and very quiet in Chicago this morning. Most everyone stayed home I guess, to get a jump on the holiday cooking.

Today's Question(s):
When walking along a route that has pedestrian signals, do (would) you;
Wait for the walk light?
Cross if there is no oncoming traffic?


Just for Fun:
What is your favorite piece of winter attire? Or at least, the piece of winter attire that you value most when it's really, really cold outside?


Bonus Question:
Have you ever served on a committee or board of any kind?


Today in History:
2011 In Cambodia, the three most senior surviving members of the Khmer Rouge regime are charged with genocide and crimes against humanity
1989 Law banning smoking on most domestic flights signed by President Bush
1980 John and Yoko pose nude for photographer Allan Tannenbaum
1968 Supremes and Temptations release "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me"
1959 Jack Benny (violin) and Richard Nixon (piano) play their famed duet
1942 Tweety Bird, aka Tweety Pie, debuts in "Tale of Two Kitties"
1922 Rebecca L. Felton sworn in as 1st female U.S. Senator
1877 Tom Edison announces his "talking machine" invention (phonograph)
1654 Richard Johnson, a free black, granted 550 acres in Virginia

Today’s Word: rhadamanthine
Pronunciation: (rad-a-MAN-thin, -thyn)
Meaning: adjective: Inflexibly just or severe.
Etymology: In Greek mythology, Rhadamanthus was the son of Zeus and Europa. He was a judge of the underworld and known for his strict justice. Earliest documented use: 1778.

Today is:
Alascattalo Day
Great American Smokeout Day
Use Less Stuff Day
World Hello Day
World Television Day

Quote of the Day:
Only through art can we emerge from ourselves and know what another person sees. ~ Marcel Proust

Have a great day everyone! And have a Happy Thanksgiving if you will be celebrating tomorrow.

Today's Question(s):
When walking along a route that has pedestrian signals, do (would) you;
Wait for the walk light? The rare times I am downtown, this one.
Cross if there is no oncoming traffic? I have done this on occasion.


Just for Fun:
What is your favorite piece of winter attire? Or at least, the piece of winter attire that you value most when it's really, really cold outside? Hmmm...I don't really have any "winter attire" other than my light coat that I haven't worn in years. I don't have anything for really, really cold weather.


Bonus Question:
Have you ever served on a committee or board of any kind? Yes, I have.

Hope you all have a wonderful day! Don't forget to take a few minutes for yourself today and tomorrow.

I almost always wait for the walk light. I am habitually early thus no need to rush about.

When it is realy cold out the most important piece of my winter attire is the heater in the Jeep. Even in minus 50F weather going from the warm Jeep to the store does not require arctic survival gear. I do have a hat and gloves in my coat pocket in the event I find myself outside for an extended period of time.

Bonus Question:
Have you ever served on a committee or board of any kind?
Sorta kinda not really.

It keeps me warm and dry. I like to wear it when I take the shorties sledding or for a walk with Howie on a snowy night.


Bonus Question:
Have you ever served on a committee or board of any kind?..... They wanted me on the committee at work to help fix the report nightmare administration came up with. I haven't the patience for the stupidity factor over there.


Today in History:
2011 In Cambodia, the three most senior surviving members of the Khmer Rouge regime are charged with genocide and crimes against humanity ....... I have a friend that was captured by the Khmer Rouge. The stories he's told me.
1989 Law banning smoking on most domestic flights signed by President Bush ...Long overdue.
1980 John and Yoko pose nude for photographer Allan Tannenbaum .....I have that photo

Have done both

Just for Fun:
What is your favorite piece of winter attire? Or at least, the piece of winter attire that you value most when it's really, really cold outside? Only one piece? Where I live you need layers.... one piece... I will say my boots because if the roads aren't plowed there's a mile walk home from the paved road.


Bonus Question:
Have you ever served on a committee or board of any kind? Oh, many. Mostly education related. Some were voluntary and some assignments.

I've been chopping onions and celery and making stuffing all morning. My sister's new beau very kindly bought fresh turkeys for tomorrow. The one I have to cook is 24 lbs...... He doesn't fit in the pan I have, so I'll be shopping for a bigger one this afternoon. He fits in the oven, luckily, but no way will the stuffing fit in, so after it's made I'll have to also travel to my daughters to have her heat it up. 24 lbs.... the thing is massive.

Just my zip up lined hoodie.

When you have worked as long as I have in the aerospace industry there always seems to be a "committee of the month."
