Welcome to the ReaderRant RoundTable
For the Second week of October

10/7/2012 through 10/13/2012
*************************

*************************
Monday, October 8
we will recognize the courage and adventurous spirit of Columbus and his crew
as we Celebrate



Source
*************************
Tuesday, October 9, is John Lennon's Birthday

*************************

On October 10, 1944
800 Gypsy children are murdered at Auschwitz concentration camp.
Source
It's very bad luck to murder Gypsy children,
Hitler was dead within 6 months by his own hand.

*************************

Thursday, October 11 is Old Michaelmas Day
Blackberries should not be picked after this date. This is because Satan was banished from Heaven on this day, fell into a blackberry bush and cursed the brambles as he fell into them. In Yorkshire, it is said that the devil had spat on them. In Cornwall, a similar legend prevails, however, the saying goes that the devil urinated on them.
*************************

October 12, 1810 was the first

When the Bavarian royalty invited the citizens of Munich to join the celebration of the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig of Bavaria to Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen.
*************************

Saturday, October 13
Is Paul Simon's birthday.

*************************

Have a Great Week Everybody!

Today I cleaned the house - literally, the entire outside - with Windex® Multi-Surface cleaning solution. Stuff left a film on the windows. So I take Windex® window cleaning to clean the windows. Film, spots still there. So, some more Windex® window cleaner. Film still there.

idea

Must be on the inside.

Nope, it's on the outside. Take Window® window cleaner again to the window. Film still there.



idea

I have some 000-grade steel wool in the garage. I look at an angle to the sun and see the steel wool is helping. Rub, rub, rub, rub, back-and-forth, rub, rub, rub...film coming off slowly.

rolleyes

Sunday chores should not be this difficult.

gobsmacked

Off to give Windex® Customer service feedback on their product.
