Monday Musings - October 28, 2013

1. The end of October and Halloween in upon us! Four days to go.

2. A vehicle with this logo on it was in my driveway the other day. I wondered if I should be worried about going into the house.

3. I learned what graupel was the other day. A nice piece of trivia I could have lived without knowing I think. It might be a good word to know for scrabble.

4. Here is a scary item I read yesterday: 30 percent of Americans get their news from Facebook. And we wonder why we have so grossly uninformed people in America today. 

5. Well at least the World Series is exciting. It is tied 2-2 with only three games remaining. Game seven, if necessary, would be played  on Halloween!  Might keep some of the goblins off the streets.

6. Here is some interesting birthday trivia: On this date in 1955, Bill Gates was born. One year later, the former President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, (a/k/a Ahm-a-dinner-jacket) was born.
