Sep 17 Friday Ezine by Dr. Tom Hill

 I am experimenting with an email Friday Ezine published every Friday by Dr. Tom Hill, a former employer of mine, friend and mentor and all roung great guy.  Thought I might be able to help him with the distribution of his ezine by including it on my Nuggets for the Noggin blog page and it worked.  All his Friday Ezines are worthy of reading but this one has an excellent book recommendation (always including on his ezines) and some very interesting tid bits about the world, "I didn't know!"

A Thought To Ponder
“There is no traffic jam on the extra mile!” was cited in print in 1977. Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and businessman Roger Staubach (born in 1942) is often credited for saying “There are no traffic jams along the extra mile.”

Antarctica is the only land on our planet that is not owned by any country. Ninety percent of the world's ice covers Antarctica . This ice also represents seventy percent of all the fresh water in the world..

The term 'The Big Apple' was coined by touring jazz musicians of the 1930s who used the slang expression 'apple' for any town or city. Therefore, to play New York City Is to play the big time - The Big Apple.

It was drilled for scientific research and gave up some unexpected discoveries, one of which was a huge deposit of hydrogen - so massive that the mud coming from the hole was boiling with it.
