During these long months of quarantine, those of you with dogs are the lucky ones- always someone there to keep you company and always an excuse to go outside for a walk. Today is Dog Day, a day to celebrate your little (or big) four-legged buddy.
Did you know…
Dogs are descendants from wolves, but their ancestors are extinct
They are the first species to be domesticated
The first undisputed domesticated dog remains were found 14,200 years ago
The smallest adult dog was a Yorkshire Terrier, who weighed only 4 ounces! The heaviest dog was a Saint Bernard who weighed 369.5 lbs.
No matter if you’re doing in-person learning or distance-learning this fall, you surely have a back-to-school supply list. Pencils, pens, paper, notebooks, calculator… what else? Adding engraved flashlights to that list is a no-brainer- it’ll keep younger kids safe no matter where they are, and it’ll help college-aged students on the walk home from a late-night study session at the library.
This forgotten child gives you the outside diameter of a pipeline in both inches
and centimeters. It is valuable to both Americans (using the inch system) and those who use the Metric system of measurements. It goes up to 38″ diameter (955 millimeters diameter). The only thing it doesn’t offer is the ability to measure straight objects. You would have to have a regular tape for that.
Who would use this tape? Inspectors who travel and deal with both systems. Any drilling companies that use both metric and imperial systems of measurement.
Every year on August 7th the United States celebrates recipients of the Purple Heart. The Armed Forces give this award to members of the military who have been wounded, killed, or died from wounds caused by an enemy attack. Let us all honor those recipients and be grateful for the freedoms and liberties for which they fight.
