Bowers & Khoury's Christmas

Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind. ~Mary Ellen Chase

Bowers & Khourys; Great Christmas Mixture (12/23/2010)

Did you know? - Benjamin Franklin (January 17, 1706 [O.S. January 6, 1705] – April 17, 1790) was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. A noted polymath, Franklin was a leading author and printer, political theorist, politician, postmaster, scientist, inventor, satirist, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat.

As a scientist, he was a major figure in the American Enlightenment and the history of physics for his discoveries and theories regarding electricity. He invented the lightning rod, bifocals, the Franklin stove, a carriage odometer, and the glass 'armonica'. He formed both the first public lending library in America and the first fire department in Pennsylvania.

Lunch At Tangata Was Excellent
