Italo Marchiony, an Italian immigrant, was issued a patent for the ice cream cone on September 22, 1903. up.gif

(It's also worth noting that on that same day, David Irland of Chicago, Illinois was issued a patent for a rather interesting variant of a pipe wrench.)

Hey, I'm still on page 1 of most prolific posters and I haven't posted much in years. I'm surrounded by good company on that page. Some turned into lifelong super duper good friends.

Since my job is on hold until further notice and the stay at home order, I have driven my car so little that I have used half a tank of gas in the last 2 weeks.

I recently came across a person with a rock on their desk I found strangely familiar, black with green striations. The only place I know with rocks like that is just west of Navaho Peak. I asked the person where they got the rock, and it was confirmed, same spot. Now I'm wondering, if I took a rock, and they took a rock, is everyone else who goes up there taking rocks ?
Are we slowly and systematically reducing that ridge to flat land ?

July 24 is National Tequila Day, and Friday is perfect timing.

I learn something new everyday.

Today I learned how to type the degree symbol using my computer keyboard.

Press the Alt key and type 0176 on the numeric key pad.

90°

48° 41' 40" N,  121° 02' 34" W  Where is this?

I suppose this only works with windows.

Today I learned that garter snakes eat slugs. Didn't know that.

Where were the garter snakes in June when I apparently needed them?

Thank you for not calling it a "gardener" snake.
A little pet peeve of mine.
Almost punched a guy once.
I mean, I understand, you see them in your garden, not on your brides thigh, but still.

^are these two statements related?

I almost punched a guy once, too, but what I did instead was grab his fingers and yank them backwards til one of them broke.
