What am I noting today?

September 15, 2020

On this day 5,000,000 years ago spears were invented.  Some say that they were the invention of Britney, but actually they were a craft project developed by chimpanzees in present day Tanzania.  This country was known to them as Eyee-cheee-ee, but was pronounced “spear.”  And that is how spears came to be.

Where was I?

September 3, 2020

I always wondered where my town was when the dinosaurs walked the earth, when the Rockies were built, when the sea covered the middle of North America, etc.  This interactive map designed by a paleontologist answers those questions.

Interactive Map shows where your Town was 750 Million Years Ago

I could not get the interactive map to load, so go here to see where your city was 400 million years ago:  https://dinosaurpictures.org/ancient-earth#240

What am I noting September 1

September 2, 2020

 


September 1 every year commemorates the life and work of the U.S.’s first female telephone operator, Emma M. Nutt.

Prior to Ms. Nutt’s hiring by the Edwin Holmes Telephone Despatch Company in Boston, Massachusetts on September 1, 1878, all telephone operators were men. Emma was employed for 33 years – often working 54 hour a week for a salary of $10 per month.  She was also notable for having memorized all of the telephone numbers in the New England Telephone Company directory and for paving the way for women in her field.
