Uncle Pax's Almanac: 1/28/2010

Buon Giorno from Utopia New Jersey where the waning days of January have brought us some bone chilling temperatures.  Well, maybe not so chilling today, but we are dropping back to 30 degrees come Friday.  Snow on Saturday?  One can only hope.

On  today's date in 1813  Pride and Prejudice was first published in England.

Make an artistic mess if today is your birthday, as you share the date with Jackson Pollock!

Here's your obscure term of the day: "Bug Eyed Betty" - any idea what it means?

Of all people, Gallagher gives us this bit of wisdom: " Don't you wish there was a knob on the TV to turn up the intelligence? There's one marked 'Brightness,' but it doesn't work."

Hope you all have a wonderful day, and that your TV's as bright as you need it to be.
