Oh by the way, folks,
Today we make fun of some delirious religion spastic who denied herself the enjoyment of an event she had spent many months training for, just because the event organizer, assigning numbers in sequence, assigned her a number that her lunatic religion considered canonically unlucky.
Now, folks, if our number sequence avoided all numbers that one religion or t'nother considered unlucky, we'd have a very strange science of arithmetic indeed! A few extreme fringe cults consider 666 unlucky. Many Americans feel a slight twinge of discomfort when confronted with 13. In some Oriental countries 4 is considered unlucky. And there's lotsa communities I'm unfamiliar with and goodness what numbers they don't like.
As for me, I'd rather keep Arithmetic intact and if you don't like it you're welcome to go have happiness with yourself.
Well anyhow, nothing happened yesterday. I did a wee bit of trimming on the crape myrtle tree that got halfway torn down a coupla years ago. My intention is to reduce it to a small enough total tonnage of wood so that when it finishes falling, the damage to my neighbor's garage will be within what my homeowners liability insurance can pay for.
And so today it looks like it's gonna be another great day.
