More things I learned on the way to something else --In like a LION edition

First Off.. As February becomes March and temps continue to drop into the sub zero range (thank you polar vortex !) let me acknowledge 2 important things--March WILL come in like a lion AND my wife Juli is the # 1 reader of this blog so let me throw in at least one "Hi Honey ! " and then get back to the business of "things I learned on the way to something else "

In my hand, I am clutching no less than 2 dozen post it notes with all kinds of strange information I gleened from reading too much late at night, early in the morning, in waiting rooms and libraries and occassionally even on a bus.

For instance:  Garick Utley, NBC newsman who just passed away, was the son of Clifton Utley, who hired NBC newsman John Chancellor who later then hired Garick. What goes around ,comes around. (Chicago Sun Times )  Another Garick Utley note: He went to Carleton College (which I believe is in Northfield, Minnesota if it's the same Carleton I'm familiar with)  and he squared off against Macalester student, and soccer player, former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan .

When it first appeared, critics ridiculed this structure as:

    Yesterday’s by-election is merely the entrée for the Tories. piumini moncler outlet The Rochester and Strood poll follows hot on its heels. What looked like a simpler contest for Cameron – more commuters, fewer pensioners – moncler outlet online started to look scarier when a poll by Lord Ascroft gave Ukip a nine-point lead. It’s like snakes on a plane – a threat wherever you turn. For Labour it’s no better.
