Monday Musings - January 30, 2023


1. It is the last Monday of January, meaning the "new" year is 1/12 complete. My, time flies!

2. The Super Bowl teams are set. The Eagles will face the Chiefs. The best game of the weekend was between the Chiefs and the Bengals with the winning score leaving only 3 seconds on the clock. Unfortunately, the Eagles game was a blow-out because the 49ers quarterback got injured. The NFL season ends in two weeks. And then it will be time for baseball!

3. I submit for your consideration another graphic provided by Jason. The graphic provides a comparison of something as basic as salt and how one's latitude can change it use. I like the bottom portion especially.

4. Reflecting back on the recent visit to Flamingo Gardens, I was able to get many great bird pictures. One that I particularly enjoy is the Black-crowned night heron. There are so many different birds on display, but the Gardens has a large collection of these unique herons.

5. It was cold towards the end of last week. I was dismayed that I had to wear jeans and a long sleeved shirt when going outside on Thursday and Friday. Fortunately, the 80s are returning today.

6Today in HistoryMohandas Karamchand Gandhi, the political and spiritual leader of the Indian independence movement, is assassinated in New Delhi by a Hindu extremist on January 30, 1948.

Born the son of an Indian official in 1869, Gandhi’s Vaishnava mother was deeply religious and early on exposed her son to Jainism, a morally rigorous Indian religion that advocated nonviolence. Gandhi was an unremarkable student but in 1888 was given an opportunity to study law in England. In 1891, he returned to India, but failing to find regular legal work he accepted in 1893 a one-year contract in South Africa.
