    Quote of the Day - October

    October 1st

    My goal is to someday be the person my dog thinks I am.
    -- Author Unknown

    4dk - boy do I understand this quote and when you really think about it - this is not a bad goal, in some cases unattainable but all in all, not a bad goal.

    Okay, it's a little "overkill" here with quotes, but I could not restist this one:

    When I go out on the ice, I just think about my skating. I forget it is a competition.

    OK, it's afternoon and no quote! So here goes:

    Whenever you start to say that you "should" do something, or worse yet, that "they should" do something, just stop it....You either will or you won't, and whatever "they" do is beyond your puny controls anyway..
    Sharon Fiffer, in "The Wrong Stuff"

    Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

    Man is the only animal that laughs and weeps; for he is the only animal that is struck with the difference between what things are, and what they ought to be.

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four Americans is suffering from some form of mental illness. Think of your three best friends. If they're okay, then it's you.

    October 11th Columbus Day (Observed USA*)

    When he (Columbus) started out he didn't know where he was going, when he got there he didn't know where he was, and when he got back he didn't know where he had been. — Anonymous.

    Columbus Day
    Over the following decades, the Knights of Columbus, an international Roman Catholic fraternal benefit society, lobbied state legislatures to declare October 12 a legal holiday. Colorado was the first state to do so on April 1, 1907. New York declared Columbus Day a holiday in 1909 and on October 12, 1909, New York Governor Charles Evans Hughes led a parade that included the crews of two Italian ships, several Italian-American societies, and legions of the Knights of Columbus. Since 1971 Columbus Day, designated as the second Monday in October, has been celebrated as a federal holiday. In many locations across the country Americans parade in commemoration of the day.

    Today is the 938th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings. The outcome of this battle changed the destiny of Europe, the Middle East, Asia and eventually Africa, North and South America.

    History is a pact between the dead, the living, and the yet unborn."
    -- Edmund Burke

    While Battle Abbey is not usually on everyone's list of places to visit while in England, it is a bit touristy but jam packed with historical information.
