Things I Know

  • Pitchers, and catchers are reporting all over Arizona, and all over Florida this week.  Spring training is here and spring is nigh.  Check your local listings for time and station.  The first game I’m interested in is February 26th.  The games don’t count, but you have to watch or listen, because baseball causes warm weather, and the broadcasts help the warm work its way north.
  • The latest Easter Sunday can possibly be is April 25th.  This year, it’s the 24th.  So you still have some time to renew your license and get your equipment in order before Easter-Bunny hunting season starts.
  • Thirty days have September, April, June and November.  All the rest have 31 except February which has 417 or in leap year, 418.
  • When people retire, resign, or otherwise leave certain categories of job, they often say they are doing so to spend more time with their families.  I have learned that spending more time with your family is overrated.  My wife told me it is.
  • Let’s see, we have Lincoln’s Birthday, Valentine’s Day, Washington’s Birthday (both of them) and Presidents’ Day.  I’d gladly give up one or more February holiday in exchange for one in August.  In fact, I’d gladly give up February in exchange for pretty much nothing at all.
  • Google isn’t omnipresent yet.  In the short while I’ve been using the Chrome Internet browser, I’ve found a handful of sites that are incompatible with it.
