In 1817 the University of Michigan was the 1st university
Established by any state. Originally named Cathelepistemian and located in Detroit , the name was changed in 1821. The university moved to Ann Arbor in 1841.

Quote
The average person spends about 20,160 minutes of his or her life kissing.

Quote
Men are more likely to initiate kissing before sex. Women are more likely to initiate kissing after sex.

Quote
Women use the intensity and frequency of kissing to evaluate a man’s suitability for short-term relationships as well as judging the potential of a short-term relationship evolving into a long-term relationship. Men use kissing, especially in short-term relationships, to increase the likelihood of having sex.

At one time there was a branch located in Monroe...   where the current parking lot for the courthouse and city hall is located!  The sign references that a building is still on the site but that must have been before they added onto the courthouse.

I was going to post this yesterday when I saw it on Twitter...  but the server upgrade was underway so obviously I couldn't post it then...   so playing a little 'catch up' this morning:

January 28th (today) is celebrated as National Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day.
 

I have an app on my phone for popping bubble wrap ;) ;) ;)

The saying "I will be there in a jiffy" is actually inspired from an actual unit of time, a 'jiffy', which is 1/100th of a second!

Is that how they named Jiffy Mix ??? ??? ???

Since the beginning of time, the human race has known to worship around 5,000 gods.

I'm leaving this one alone...

August has the most birthdays, February has the least and most of the serial killers are born in November!

I guess I'll be keeping a closer eye on the people I know born in November :-\ :-\ :-\

For Tomorrow's coffee table discussions...
Quote
German tradition holds that if the sun comes out on Candlemas, the precursor to Groundhog Day, the hedgehog (or badger) will see its shadow and six more weeks of winter will follow. When German settlers came to Pennsylvania they continued this tradition, using groundhogs instead of hedgehogs to predict the weather.
Probably just as accurate as some of today's modern technology  ;D
Quote
The first official Groundhog Day was celebrated on February 2, 1886 in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania

Quote
Punxsutawney was first settled by the Delaware Indians in 1723 and its name comes from the Indian name for the location "ponksad-uteney" which means the "town of the sandflies." The name woodchuck also has Indian origins, coming from the legend of "Wojak, the groundhog."

Quote
Punxsutawney Phil has definitely adapted to the times. He can now text you his Tuesday weather prediction. Just text "Groundhog" to 247365 on Groundhog Day.
I'm sure there's a web cam somewhere as well...

Quote
In the years following the release of Groundhog Day, a 1993 film starring Bill Murray, crowds numbering as high as 30,000 have visited Gobbler's Knob, a tiny hill in Punxsutawney where the ceremony takes place.
A great movie - that somehow you can watch over and over as well.... ;D

That ain't bad really......it may be something to put on the bucket list.  Taking an MT charter bus would certainly make for a memorable time.

Memorable, yes.  But I'm not sure I could handle it without a strong "medication".

Who would you want to see driving it?

I'd say Duck, with a co-pilot of Monroe Native
(one would want to go left, the other right - and we'd end up  going straight to where we were going)  ;D

The entertainment would be non-stop, and I'm guessing we'd have choices of "medication" if Fuzz were to join us  ;)
