Good morning! <BR> <BR> Two questions today, both dealing with President's day! <BR> <BR> But first, yesterday's answer: Zachary Taylor <BR> <BR> Today: <BR> 1. If you are working for someone other than yourself and they offer you holidays, would you pick President's Day or MLK Day or would you be willing to "float" over the two for an equal "manning" purpose (meaning, you don't care and you would let your boss chose for you in order to make the manning issues more even)? <BR> <BR> 2. We'... Mon, 16 Feb 2015 10:34:58 EST QOTD 02.15.15 Sunday! Good morning! <BR> <BR> Yesterday's answer; I found nothing about a heart-shaped note, but I did find that Valentinus, a priest in 200 something AD was beheaded on Feb 14th after a beating and stoning, for secretly marrying soldiers and ministering to Christians,. He had apparently healed his jailer's daughter's sight and gave his jailer's (Austerius) daughter his last note which was signed as, "from your Valentine" <BR> <BR> Most countries around the world celebrate St. Valentine's Day on ...

You were the only one that hit the board yesterday and I appreciate it. <BR> <BR> Yesterday's answer:A Sailor or man of the sea. Say what?! As I said yesterday, I don't see how this goes together at all. So what, some girl saw a robin on Valentine's day and said, "I just saw a robin!" so her mom spread it around the village and when she got married to a sailor everyone decided that you get married to sailors if you see a... Tue, 10 Feb 2015 09:26:58 EST QOTD 02.09.15 Monday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Yesterday's answer: William H Harrison was the first president to die in office and he was elected in 1840 (the now dreaded Zero year). Every president after him, elected in a zero year died in office until Reagan in 1980. Reagan was shot, but survived. Who keeps track of all this stuff? I find it extremely interesting, but it always amazes me at the fact that there is someone, somewhere, writing all this crap down so it can be gathered later by some hist... Mon, 9 Feb 2015 11:03:00 EST QOTD 02.08.15 Sunday! Hello! <BR> <BR> Yesterday's answer: Nebraska, but true to usual for this site I used to get the q&a on, it isn't totally right.

Trying to do too many things at one time isn't working today! <BR> <BR> Yesterday's answer: Harrison. He saw North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Washington, Idaho, and Wyoming all become states. It was originally the Northwest Territory, and it was chopped up into six states. Apparently the top part of Idaho was originally going to be part of WA, but somewhere along the line it was handed over to Idaho and that is why Idaho has this thin strip of land between Montana and Washington...

Good morning! <BR> <BR> Yesterday's answer: A kiss (at midnight)! You both got it right, great job. <BR> I learned a long time ago to spend New Years Eve evening with the one you wanted to spend the most of the year with. A friend told me that and it turned out, after several attempts to prove it wrong, to be true. It just seems strange, but it worked out that way every time. <BR> <BR> Today's question: Do you know what AULD LANG SYNE means? That's the name of the traditional New Years E... Sun, 28 Dec 2014 01:26:52 EST QOTD 12.27.14 Saturday! Good morning! <BR> <BR> Yesterday's answer: Bandleader Guy Lombardo. He first heard "Auld Lang Syne" sung by Scottish immigrants in his hometown of London, Ontario. Then he played the son at the New Year's Eve party at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City in 1929. The song was played at the stroke of midnight every New Year's Eve at New York's famous Waldorf Astoria from the 1930s until 1976. I don't know what they replaced it with - maybe they don't have the same style of party any more... Sat, 27 Dec 2014 10:59:04 EST QOTD 12.26.14 Friday! Good Morning! <BR> <BR> Yesterday's answer: Hersey's Kisses! You all got it right - Excellent! I thought the question was tricky because it said, red and green, to me that meant something like red and green stripes, not red OR green as in one red, one green. The silver kiss was the conductor and the one that played that last note got to play the most notes, too. I thought she did an excellent job of it, too! <em>494</em> Closest I could get to chocolate kisses candy. <BR> <BR> Toda... Fri, 26 Dec 2014 07:05:17 EST QOTD 12.25.14 Thursday!
