the oldest military organization in the United States. If you knew it was the National Guard you get two points.
On December 13 of 1636, a direct declaration by the Massachusetts General Court established for the first time in the American Colonies an official militia. The resolution required that all able-bodied men from age 16 to 60 were expected to join. While less-organized militia existed at the time, this legal document brought them together under a formal establishment. This organization today is known as the National Guard.
And it's National Cocoa Day. Just in time.
If you didn't make it to the EDC workshop last night you missed a full house. You missed The EDC voting to cancel the cancelled contract with Okies then voting to cancel the whole damn mess and starting over. There seemed to be some confusion among the directors as to what the citizenry wanted and or expected SO yours truly called for an impromptu show of hands as to who was for going forward and who was not. The Nots won the night by no small margin. Hence the do over. What a mess. You also missed the introduction of Team Clear Lake Shores. To the best of my knowledge it's only Craig but I could be wrong. I kinda get around and I've never heard the phrase until last night. Oh, that's when TCLS president told Councilman Hoerner to Fuck Off and proceeded to flip him off. See what you missed?!
