Schott's Miscellany 14 May 2009

Israel was officially established as an independent Jewish state following the partition of Palestine (1948)


THIRTY DAYS

30 days hath November,
April, June, and September.
February hath 28 alone,
And all the rest have 31


or

30 days hath November,
April, June, and September,
Of 28 there is but one
And the rest 30 and 1
Dirty days hath September,
April, June, and November.
From January up to May
The rain it raineth every day.
February hath twenty-eight alone,
And all the rest have thirty-one.
If any of them had two and thirty
They'd be just as wet and dirty.


---Thomas Hood (1799-1845)



Virtue is not left to stand alone. He who practices it will have neighbors.
Confucius (551-497 BCE)
