    Looks great! I’ve corrected the link on my blog to your new URL. Very nice.

    Is there a place where I could upload a similar calendar feature? I’m updating mine on a daily basis for the second year, but really wish I had that feature too.

  2. Kathy L. says:

    What is the procedure for requesting an entry for a certain date? Thank you.

  3. DW Jones says:

    I have been a follower of this site for a few years now. But recently, I have noted a difference in the writing/delivery format. Some of it tends to raise the little hairs on the back of my neck… one such incident is as follows: “The Virginia Declaration of Rights granted every individual the right to the enjoyment of life and liberty and to acquire and possess property. The Virginia document was written by George Mason…” My problem with this posting is that the government cannot grant that as a right… but is duty bound to insure that as a natural right it cannot be infringed BY government rulings. Now the reason it raises the little hairs on my neck is it seems to validate some left leaning teachings that GOVERNMENT grants human rights NOT that the rights **are** or SHOULD be understood to be natural to birth. If this site is placed as an education site… then we must pay closer attention to the details and see that the student has the FACTS related to all subject matter. No rights came from George Mason, no rights came from any legislator, as stated in the Constitution of the USA… rights are endowed by the Creator… not mankind. Thusly, government’s duty is to PROTECT those rights. We have at least one generation now that wants people to believe differently… that GOVERNMENT grants rights… we do not need another source that endorses that fictitious train of thought. MANKIND can only INFRINGE on the rights of mankind.
    Thank you for your indulgence,

      DW,

      This is a by-product of how the information on this site has been gathered. Most of what is here is not my own writing. It started out as my own private catalog of events in a spreadsheet, and I eventually moved it to a blog. I have a disclaimer elsewhere that points out that most of the writing is not my work. It was chosen for the catalog for being comprehensive, if not completely correct.

      I completely agree with your conclusions. This entry is one that screams for a rewrite. There are a lot of them. As you’ve brought this one to my attention like this, I’ll probably be addressing it sooner then later. I’m sure you’ll find more.

    • J Leistiko says:

      Hi DW – Your post delves into the philosophical distinction between Natural Rights and Civil Liberties, and questions of what natural rights one should relinquish in return for the protections of civil liberties granted by a government. This all gets very tricky when we haven’t had the chance to gain agreement on what the words we’re using mean. The post you quote uses the word “rights,’ and it seems to do so in a way that means something different from what you think it should mean. The word “rights” gets used a lot in discussions about people and their relationship to their government (Consider the title of the very important document “The Bill of Rights.” or the beginning of the Miranda statement: “You have the right to remain silent…”) Similarly, you use the phrase, “…rights are endowed by the Creator… not mankind. Thusly, government’s duty is to PROTECT those rights.” With the definitions I use, I disagree with this assertion. I agree that we have innate natural rights – We are creatures with the natural capacity (or natural right, as it were) to steal, use force to get our way, and commit any number of egregious acts. Through participation/membership in a nation, we enter into a social contract and relinquish a large number of these natural rights in return for civil liberties. This is a really good thing, as the rule of law (when applied consistently) protects us from each other and empowers us to get productive things done instead of worrying about defending ourselves from marauding bands of thieves and bandits. I assert that the government’s duty is to equitably and fairly enforce the rule of law to ensure that all of its citizens receive the benefits of their civil liberties. Part of doing this actually entails aggressive (and potentially violent) suppression of our innate natural rights. Taking this to an extreme, I’d assert that a nation never defends or protects a “right,” as it does not have the authority or ability to do so. Continuing with this extreme example: When we participate in a nation, we actually relinquish all of our natural rights in returns for the civil liberties that nation grants. Some, and even many, of those civil liberties may be identical (or near-identical) to the natural rights we relinquish, but this similarity does not make them equivalent. We’re in agreement that a government does not grant rights (I’m asserting that it grants civil liberties), but we disagree on what a government’s role is. I assert that government is based almost entirely on infringing upon the natural rights we have from birth, whereas you assert that government should protect those rights. Amusingly, I suspect that we’re actually on the same side in that both you and I want people to retain as much freedom and liberty – as much of their rights (or civil liberties that fastidiously mimic them) as possible.
      Respectfully,
      Jonathan L.

    Year of Audie Murphy’s birth is wrong. June 20, 1925

  5. Reed Hickam says:

    July 6 keeps coming up July 1

  6. Alison White says:

    July 31 comes up as July 1, changing the URL in my browser has no effect. Thanks

    • RTO Trainer says:

      Should be fixed now. You may have to flush your browser cache.

      Thanks to all for putting up with the bugs from moving the blog. Especially those of you, like Alison, who have brought these issues to my attention.

  7. Toby says:

    Lincoln’s birthday is Feb 12th not March 12th…

  8. Mike Gori says:

    I use excerpts from your site as a lead-in for a sometimes boring daily report. Guess what? The engineers are reading it and commenting. Thanks,

  9. Leonard Tavernetti says:

    The April 30th events are from April 1st

  10. yahoo says:

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all
    is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any recommendations or
    advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

    • R. W. White says:

      This is free, but for the time I spend on it.

      There are a lot of hosting sites. This one is WordPress, I’ve used Blogger and LiveJournal. All three of those are free.

  11. Rhonda Voitl says:

    Sept 7th keeps coming up as Sept 1. Great site though Thank You

  12. clanc49 says:

    To whom it may concern
    The last few days I have been unable to use the nav calender Sep 6 7 8 9

  13. Ray h says:

    September is still not working. Click on the 9th and get a NOTHING FOUND message.

  14. Charlie Tallman says:

    Tried clearing browsing history and cache to no avail… getting nothing found consistently for 09 September. :-(

  15. Charlie Tallman says:

    Looks like September is a month of “issues”, ayuh? The 14th keeps coming up nothing found, and changing URL in browser has no effect.

  16. Ray h says:

    Now September 15 is coming up – Nothing Found.

  17. Ray h says:

    Yesterday’s information and tomorrow’s information comes up but not today’s information.

    • R. W. White says:

      http://www.wikihow.com/Clear-Your-Browser%27s-Cache

      That has instructions for clearing the cache (not history) of most browsers.

    • R. W. White says:

      Okay. There’s a big difference between viewing the blog on the machine where the edits are made and on a different machine. My apologies if it seems I’ve been pushing this off as your problem–I continued to research the issue and finally found out what was going on.

      I was trying to edit several days of material and schedule the posting date to coincide with each day–trouble is that WordPress changes the link when the publication date is changed and the old URL is no longer available, even before the publication is scheduled.

      So, to minimize disruption, I will have to give up the idea of pre-posting. Would have been nice.
