Back To Our Regularly Scheduled Program

Since we spent Thanksgiving in Philly, here's some Philadelphia facts.  Did you know that Philly had the first volunteer fire department, medical school and library in the colonies? And west of town the first Botanical Garden?

  1. Happy Birthday Steve.
    Did you know that cute as they are, meerkats have sharp teeth and are happy to use them> One of my brothers volunteers at a local zoo and he told me that the meerkat keepers have all had stitches courtesy of their charges.

    1. They sound like roses, only a little bit more rancorous.

  4. I'm with CJ. I didn't know any of these facts, but they are certainly good Jeopardy questions (actually answers).

    Happy birthday to Steve. I hope he gets that car (grin).

    My foodie friend Sally LOVES Meerkats and collects memorabilia about them. I'll have to tell her how viscous they are.

  6. And I just went to Boston and a feud between Ben Franklin and his brother had Ben leaving Boston for Philly and I think Ben was one of the geniuses behind all three!
