Hello and happy 21st of September! An odd way to say hi? I don’t think so. We’re this close to the astronomical start of autumn [or fall if you prefer]. And I somehow happened upon the fact that September 21st, 1799, was when the French Philippe Lebon invented the first gas heater. Very fitting fact with the colder months in mind, don’t you agree? It was also when in 1983 the first mobile phone – weighing a feathery ~ 1.8 lb – made it onto the US market. Okay, I apparently enjoy some random facts … What I also enjoy and came here to share today, though, are great posts. Rambling be gone, reading may start.
