Today in history, greetings, and social banter here. (More)

The epoch of the modern Hebrew Calendar began today (3761 BCE). Also, João Rodrigues Cabrilho discovered Santa Catalina island (1542), the Granite Railway began operations (1826), Cornell University opened (1868), Air France was formed (1933), the Soviet probe Luna 3 transmitted photographs of the far side of the moon (1959), and President John Kennedy signed the Partial Test Ban Treaty (1963). And Cats opened on Broadway (1982).

The Janitor Professor of Astrology regrets that he was unable to research Bippiescopes this week because the Professor of Astrology Janitor ate the last of the cream cheese. The Professor of Astrology Janitor objected that shouldn’t delay Bippiescopes because stars are not made of cream cheese, and now the two of him refuse to speak to each other. Chef will buy more cream cheese today, and Bippiescopes should return next week. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Good morning! ::hugggggs::
