      • On This Day, November 20th, 1923, the first 3 position traffic signal was patented by Garrett Morgan.

        Before this signals just had STOP, and GO, and too many accidents happened at busy intersection when drivers in both directions had actually entered the intersection legally, because of the lack of an interval signal between stop and go to warn drivers to come to a stop. The new signal included a WARNING flag to let them know to not enter the intersection, like todays yellow light..

        • bad day today.....i broke one of my molars in 1/2.got in to see the dentist.he was able to pull the remaining 1/2 of my tooth.
          then he went ahead and did a filling on a different tooth.the bad part is that 1/2 of the filling was under the gum line...
          oh,well at least he saved the tooth.

            • Sorry to hear about PJ's Coronavirus and Doug's boss' family tragedy. Sending best wishes & hoping for speedy recoveries.

              Anyhow I just celebrated 4 years with my job, will be seeing about adding a second work day, and I have been praised for my loyalty to my job, my sterling record there, and my expertise with so many different things that come through our doors as donations or retail salvage/recoveries. This was great news, after having a relapse of some pretty significant mental health conditions over last week that some effects of dragged through the middle of this week. And I'll be adding some neat, odd stuff to the collection come the Yuletide season.

                  Too bad about the molar, you don't realize how much you use them until they are gone, but glad they were able to fill the other tooth for you.

                      • I wish all the states that were won by President-Elect Biden could be under his rule and the ones Presiden Trump won could be under his rule.
                        Due to the recent budget cuts,
                        the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil, plus the
                        current state of the economy, the light at the end
                        of the tunnel has been turned off.

                          Biden is NOT President Elect, regardless of how much the fake news continues to shout that.
                          The Electoral College meets Dec 14th, they decide and only if states have certified the results,
                          which many have not. POTUS has every right to peruse all legal avenues and is doing so, be patient.
