9 score and 18 years ago

I wasn't planning on participating in Six Word Saturday today. But here I am, and here's my six:

I learned something without using google.

Today Spider Droid finished reading the book, Gettysburg: The Graphic Novel to, which he has been doing over the past week or so. The book tells the story of the battle of Gettysburg and culminates with Lincoln giving the Gettysburg address.

As he was reading I realized that Lincoln gave the speech 148 years ago. So that's 9 score and 18 years ago. I'm 47 so it's also 3 me's and 7 years ago. In honor of the Cubs hiring a new manager, it's the last time Cubs were world champions and 45 years ago. Okay, you get it. It was a while back.

While I am good at remembering birthdays and anniversaries in our family, Google's little fancy designs are usually what tell me of the commemoration of a historical birth or event. Today I learned about it without Google. In fact if you take a look at a Google, you will see I scooped them. How about that?

  1. Wow, that is an accomplishment to have learned something without Google! Seriously, what did we ever do before Google? For me, with my field of working (medical transcription) that meant I had to pick up a dictionary if I couldn't find a word, now I can just google it. Times sure have changed, haven't they?

    I hope you and your family have a nice Thanksgiving!


  2. Congrats on scooping Google! I love them as a tool but I try to remember that the world didn't always have Google and yet somehow we lived and learned and pursued happiness.
