This week stop by The Institute and see our exhibit on Slippers- The Forgotten Footwear, an insightful look at the history of an American treasure. Kids get in free with parental guidance and orthodontic head gear.
Let me tell you a little about myself and why I have been chosen to write whatever this is that I am doing at the moment. I am a former Brigadier General of The US Naval Academy who has written articles on whodiggeries and whatchamajingies for everyone from the Naval News Bulletin to the Senior Sentinel and all points in between. I am older than you need to know and twice as smart as the next fella, so don't try to pull one over on me unless you want an earful of what the heck, an eyeful of blinding justice, and a mouthful of questionable bridge work. I joined the Institute Of Things You Should Know About as their local historian because I didn't have my reading glasses on and I thought it was a good way to inform the general public about the many things that go by undiscovered every day. The column is called Did You Know? With Dr. Joe because I wager that nobody under the age of 90 knows half the things that I am privvy to on a daily basis or as needed.
Today Did You Know? With Dr. Joe asks the question Did You Know That Steely Resolve and Determination Can Take a Man Further Than Any Foreign Made Vehicle? According to the folks at Danny's Diner and a well placed source at the Pentagon who may not actually be from the Pentagon after all, Steely Resolve gets 10 miles more per gallon than the highest selling Toyota brand and Determination handles every road test better than anything the Germans have come up with since the Blitzkrieg. Keep an eye out for more columns that keep you abreast of things you need to know about and always, always, Watch Out!!
