Pancakes on Wednesdays

I hope that you like my pancakes today.

Pancakes, the cornerstone, of a nutricious breakfast....

Welcome to Pancakes on Wednesdays.

Wednesday, November 19, 2003

Here is an amalgamation of trivial facts and seemingly useless data.

Do not forget to hit the hyperlinks.

We have links, lots of them.

Look it up!

An opening between supports on a castle parapet for dropping missiles on an enemy.

When the world was younger, the principal defence against attackers was the castle, so effective before the age of gunnery that the only way to subdue it was to undermine its walls. To stop the enemy doing this, defenders evolved several techniques, one of which was to build out structures from the tops of the walls so that stones, boiling oil or other deterrents could be dropped on those below. At first these structures were of wood (called hoardings) but they were later reconstructed in stone, most commonly over the particularly vulnerable gatehouses but in some cases all along the walls. The word came from the Old French machicolor, a compound of Provençal macar, “crush”, and col, “neck”, a graphic description of the result of being bombarded with stones from on high while you were trying to dig.

Happy Birthday

James Garfield 1831

"Four months after taking office he was wounded fatally by an assassin's bullet. His administration is remembered for a struggle over patronage, exposure of the Star Route frauds, and the beginnings of a friendlier policy toward Latin America..."

I was president for 4 months longer than Al Gore.

Todays Wednesday field trip takes us to the future.

Happy Birthday

Indira Gandhi 1917

You can't shake hands with a clenched fist.

It is so simple

In the February 4, 2002 issue of The Paducah Sun, Hack made headlines with his sweet new project: making maple syrup from the tree sap at Camp Bear Creek. In January, he and Hank Rogalinski, Site Manager for the camp, noticed sap dripping from a tree at the camp and decided that the syrup-making could be a learning tool for Girl Scouts. Local girls helped collect the sap, which was then boiled down over a fire for two days to make the syrup. And it takes A LOT of sap to make just a little syrup!  Out of 135 to 140 gallons of sap, they extracted 2½ gallons of syrup. Although it takes a lot of work and very little returns, these guys know how much the experience benefits girls, and that's what really counts! Good work, guys!

We are counting cards.

Alan Young 1919

Horse Sense.

Pancakes on Wednesdays makes sense.

A pancake formula is a complex thing!

Happy Birthday

Larry King 1933

Larry King, mental giant....ha ha ha ha .

Happy Birthday

Dick Cavett 1936

"If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either."

As long as people will accept crap, it will be financially profitable to dispense it.

Happy Birthday

Ted Turner 1938

I never shut up, so it is easy to see how stupid I am.

I invented CNN. Nuff said.

Happy Birthday

Garrick Utley 1939

That is my boss up there above me.

Happy Birthday

Pete Moore (Smokey Robinson and the Miracles) 1939

All I need is a miracle, and some pancakes.

Happy Birthday

Dan Haggerty 1941

Do bears eat Pancakes in the woods?

Happy Birthday

Calvin Klein 1942

Nothing gets between me, and some good pancakes.

Happy Birthday

Meg Ryan 1961

Dear Bo, I love you but, Meg, is just a friend, after all

"I will have what she is having!"

Of course I am having pancakes today.

Happy Birthday

Jodie Foster 1962

Hey Bo Derek, will you please write to Radix, he misses you.

On this day:

1794 - The U.S. and Britain signed the Jay Treaty, which resolved the issues left over from the Revolutionary War.

1863 - U.S. President Lincoln delivered his Gettysburg Address as he dedicated a national cemetery at the site of the Civil War battlefield in Pennsylvania.

What do you call a Gorilla who walks two miles to return some banana pancakes? Honest Ape.

I was born on February 12th, 1809

1959 - Ford Motor Co. announced it was ending the production of the unpopular Edsel.

I am an excellent driver.

I am an excellent subtle posterer.

1966 - Sandy Koufax (Los Angeles Dodgers) announced his retirement from major League baseball.

We are counting strikeouts

Koufax earned a place among baseball's greatest pitchers with a dominating performance between 1962 and 1966.

Guess who is on first base? Nobody, I struck him out.

1979 - Nolan Ryan (Houston Astros) signed a four-year contract for $4.5 million. At the time, Ryan was the highest paid player in major League baseball.

  We are counting no-hitters

See mouse over text in the above image.

1990 - Milli Vanilli was stripped of their Grammy Award because other singers had lent their voices to the "Girl You Know It's True" album.

1998 - The impeachment inquiry of U.S. President Clinton began.

1998 - Vincent van Gogh's "Portrait of the Artist Without Beard" sold at auction for more than $71 million.

About a hundred dollars.

Artist without a pancake is a much lesser known work.

2001 - U.S.  President George W. Bush signed the most comprehensive air security bill in U.S. history.

Always first, and on the right.   Happy Birthday lindaSOG!

Support Fisher House
The Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America's military in their time of need by providing homes close to a loved one during the hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury.

There are currently 31 houses located on the grounds of every major military medical center and several VA medical centers. These houses will play a critical role in caring for casualties from Operation Iraqi Freedom. Donations will be used to help meet the cost of lodging for a family whose loved one was injured in Operation Enduring Freedom or Operation Iraqi Freedom. There is a limit to the number of families who can stay in a Fisher House and program is committed to help provide lodging for families who must find commercial lodging, because the Fisher House is full.

You think you're hot?
Our military forces in Iraq sweat it out in 130 degree heat everyday!
Cool Our Troops is a non-profit effort to 'Cool' our troops in Iraq. They are raising funds to send personal misters to 50,000 military personnel serving in Iraq. The misters are portable, no batteries or electricity required, and rely on evaporation to cool surrounding temperatures by 20-30 degrees.

Oh, how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day. -Psalm 119:97

Increase your knowledge of God's Word,
For in it you will find
The wisdom that you need for life,
Which comes from God's own mind. -Sper

Spiritual strength requires a training program of Bible reading and prayer.
