I'm a big fan of "Peanuts", "Pearls Before Swine", and "Calvin and Hobbes". I love Snoopy's positive outlook on life and Hobbes' affinity for smooching and babes. :-)

    At that point, I would hardly call them “friends.”

    Actually, he was born on February 11, 1731 under the old Julian calendar. Britain switched to the Gregorian calendar during Washington’s lifetime, making his birthday February 22. However, in 1968, Congress voted to create a three-day weekend for federal employees by moving Washington’s birthday to the third Monday in February. It’s called the Uniform Monday Holiday Act and was signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson. It is popularly called “Presidents Day” but, technically and legally, it is a holiday celebrating Washington’s birthday.

    I love all of these musicals but I’m partial to Rodgers and Hammerstein.

    Actually, Frazz, it’s Washington’s Birthday, not Presidents Day.

    I’m sorry, Number Three. I did not intend to hurt you and I am unhappy that I have. I am just tired and I have every intention of writing back to you. I understand why you feel that way but you have done absolutely nothing to offend or upset me. Please be patient.

    Many schools don’t get Monday off. And it’s officially by law called Washington’s Birthday, which is why it is in February. Although it is popularly called “Presidents Day,” it was originally designed to celebrate George Washington only and give federal employees a three-day weekend.

    It’s also “description,” not “discription.”

    A reminder: Even though it is popularly called Presidents Day, it is actually a celebration Washington’s Birthday, which why it is in February. The original 1968 Uniform Monday Holiday Act mentioned no other president other than George Washington - not even Lincoln.

    Presidents Day is not the official name of the holiday. This was a popular name that took over after the Uniform Monday Holiday Act of 1968 was passed. The third Monday in February was referred to George Washington’s Birthday in the original act, not Presidents Day. In some areas of the country, it is called President’s Day. Both versions of the name are incorrect. The day is a celebration of Washington’s Birthday.

    Church buildings are often modeled after the Old Testament Temple, which was quite extravagant. Some churches do seem to go overboard but many are basically just a place to meet. Also, many - if not most - churches DO give to the needy. The Church, as a fellowship of believers, was instituted by Jesus himself so to say you don’t need to go to church goes against what he taught. It is true that you can worship, study, and pray by yourself but that is not to be the norm for his followers. Fellowship with like-minded believers is commanded in Christ’s teachings. “If there were fewer elaborate church buildings, there’d be less poverty.” Maybe. But the same could be said for sports stadiums, entertainment arenas, and casinos. Giving to God is every bit as responsible, if not more so, than giving your money to gambling and drinking. These may be fine in moderation but excess in these areas is neither responsible nor healthy.
