    Our calendar is based on a calculation of the birth of Christ made by Dionysius Exiguus (Dennis the Small) a (Bulgarian) Monk. Since the Roman Church dominated western Europe, and the Romans had reformed the calendar with the Julian calendar, this system of dating the years predominated as Christians conquered Europe.
    Jews continue to use their own calendar today in 5775, as do the Chinese now in 4712, and the people of Thailand in 2557.

    That is the custom with some fans. I was at a Mariner’s home game where one of the Orioles hit a homer and it was caught. I don’t think the guy was paying attention, because when someone yelled, “throw it back!” he did.
    Even M’s fans were stunned, because that was Cal Ripken’s last game in Seattle. That night the scenario was on the sports news. The sportscaster capped it by commenting, “What a Moron!”

    Keith, I can only imagine how harrowing this experience was for you and your dear one. May the present and future bring good health and happiness to all of you.

    How many insurance executives used to be the bullies?

    “Insurance executive? After ACA they still exist?”
    While the ACA will make it easier for some people to fight diseases and parasitic infestations, they don’t eliminate the problem of insurance executives.

    …And that’s how Harold met Maude.

    It is a very thought-provoking film. There are definitely situations where a mother or baby’s life is in danger. In most other situations, though, delivery can be a more gradual, loving procedure with more comfort for the mother, fewer toxic drugs and more bonding between baby and parents. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0995061/?ref_=sr_1

    At least this crane operator is making sure that he’s got the right building lined up. Carillo might have gotten a stronger reaction had this strip run last June. Related to that, there is a movement to get the Philly Salvation Army Store disaster site made into a memorial park:
