A peaceful but dismal Monday
A dismal day out there, Nature's unsmiling face.
Spent about 90 minutes today at the Dentist's office, having a tooth fixed. Spent the afternoon screwing around here on the computer, but learning stuff about Greenwich Mean Time, its 'successor' Coordinated Universal Time(curiously acronymed as UCT, which was a linguistic compromise between English and French) and the International Date Line, and different time zones(Alaska and Hawaii each have their own- which would really figure, but I didn't know..)and a little bit more about the geography of the world.
Alaska's time is 3 hours before ours(Central Standard Time here in good old Illinois)and Hawaii's is 5 hours previous to ours.For what that's worth.
Back to Geography, the more time I spend looking at the maps, the more gets cemented into my brain as Actual Stuff I Know. Not a strong subject with me, but I'm working on it. Especially on dismal afternoons like this one..
Gotta practice at some point here. One new one on YouTube, check it out if so inclined. Thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. More later.
