And the winner of Thursday’s trivia contest is…
Brooke S. from Texas!
Brooke was the first to correctly answer the question (okay, she was the only one who answered, but she answered REALLY quickly), “Where is the only place the U.S. flag is flown at full staff, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year without ever being raised, lowered or saluted?” The answer…
Old Glory was planted on the moon by Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldren in July of 1969. It has flown at full staff perpetually since then without ever having been raised, lowered, or saluted….
….that we know of! 😉

A wife was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her husband.
Suddenly, her husband burst into the kitchen.
“Careful,” he said. “CAREFUL! Put in some more butter!
Oh my Goodness! You’re cooking too many at once. TOO MANY!
Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my GOD! WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER? They’re going to STICK!
Careful . CAREFUL! I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you’re cooking! Never!
Turn them! Hurry up! Are you CRAZY? Have you LOST your mind?
Don’t forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!”
The wife stared at him. “What in the world is wrong with you? You think I don’t know how to fry a couple of eggs?”
The husband calmly replied, “I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I’m driving.”
“Sometimes the best way to convince someone he is wrong is to let him have his way.” –Josh Billings, 1818-1885 (Read more about him.)
On February 26, 1881, the steamer yacht Ceylon set sail from Liverpool, England on the first ever around-the-world cruise. The vessel was under the ownership of the Ocean Steam Yachting Company. The photo at left is an earlier photo of passengers aboard the Ceylon during an 1858 cruise.
