1. ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY
14th September 1752
THE GREGORIAN CALENDAR IS INTRODUCED TO BRITAIN
The Gregorian calendar, the one we all use today, was officially used for the first time in Britain and its colonies, replacing the Julian calendar. This meant that eleven days were "lost" as the date went straight from September 2 to September 14.

3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
However, the right attitude tends to attract better circumstances, so even if there are disasters, a good attitude gives you the ability to "grow back". The fundamental baseline attitude must be GRATITUDE. For all the things that have happened to me that were most definitely NOT my preference, experiences both positive and negative have built up the quiet strength that has kept me sane and functional. That in itself is a value-added achievement, but with continual growth I intend not just to survive but to WIELD POWER!
My intention in doing so is not to enjoy it for its own sake but to fulfil my life purpose of making the maximum difference, and scattering seeds of knowledge that will take root and grow in lives to come.

7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
The smallest fully grown dinosaur fossil known is Lesothosaurus (“Lizard from Lesotho”). It is only the size of chicken.
9. ZEN WISDOM
Discrimination is absolutely an evil. Those whose minds are distorted by prejudice injure the lives of many others as well as themselves. To claim the roots of one’s identity in a particular racial or ethnic group is a delusion. Our common humanity is the only valid root to claim.
