Schott's Miscellany 27 April 2009

Socrates died after taking the poison hemlock (399 BCE)


ON ALMANACS

A person without an almanac is somewhat like a ship at sea without a compass;
he never knows what to do, nor when to do it.
So Mormon, others, sect & Quaker,
Buy alamancs, & pay the maker.

---Almanac for the year 1860, W.W. Phelps, Salt Lake City


PANZOOTIC--an epidemic of disease affecting many species
"Luckily, for the time being, bird flu was not panzootic."
