More common in certain breeds such than others, it can occur to any horse that carries the right gene, male or female.
I've never seen one in person either. I think that "any horse that carries the right gene" statement is bullshit. What is the likelihood of that gene traveling to distant breeds and continents?

You know Malcolm and Angus Young of AC/DC fame, right?

Well, they have an older brother, George, who just died (on Oct 22nd). This guy had a songwriting/producing partnership with Harry Vanda (Vanda & Young produced several of AC/DC's albums).

Well, I told ya that to tell this:

Today I learned Malcolm's and Angus' older brother George (along w/Harry Vanda) wrote this song:



I was sorta stunned. George was also in a band called The Easybeats. They wrote and recorded Friday On My Mind, which has been recorded by, well, damn near everybody.

Good catch sir

i did not know that

you couldn't have knocked me over any further than if you'd told me that a pre-fame Bruce Springsteen spent time in a philly diner with newly-famous Billy Joel... and a pre-fame Barry Manilow.

(but it did happen. this account of the tale leaves out important DJ Ed Sciaky, who later recalled that Manilow predicted he'd be the most famous of the bunch. He was arguably wrong, but not far wrong.)

Today I learned that people in prison can still do good things for society.

Today I learned how to adjust the timekeeping rate on our cuckoo clock. UNSURPRISINGLY, the mechanism is simplicity itself. To make the clock run faster, slide the decorative weight on the pendulum shaft upward. Sliding it lower makes it tick more slowly.

*Of course!*

fortunately, on this occasion, someone got up this morning and went to walk home, and found hat the key had not in fact fallen inside the car which then auto-locked... but had fallen through a hole in the pocket of their coat and was stuck in the lining, despite us checking for that last night (before the breakdown service spent over an hour in the snow trying to open the door.....)

I fell in love with the cuckoo clock in my aunt's bungalow - after she moved to Spain, she came back for a visit and brought me a smaller version that looked very like hers.


I can attest to not swinging the weights.

Yes.

Today I learned the NFL will take points off the board to protect the Patriots.
