Did you know? - February was named after the Latin term februum, which means purification, via the purification ritual Februa held on February 15 in the old Roman calendar. January and February were the last two months to be added to the Roman calendar, since the Romans originally considered winter a monthless period. They were added by Numa Pompilius about 700 BC. February remained the last month of the calendar year until the time of the decemvirs (c. 450 BC), when it became the second month.

The Fearless Leaders
Did You Know? - Fortunately Jerry is NOT like the real "Fearless Leader"
Fearless Leader is a fictional character and the principal antagonist in the 1959-1964 animated television series Rocky and His Friends and The Bullwinkle Show, both shows often collectively referred to as Rocky and Bullwinkle. He is voiced by Bill Scott.
Fearless Leader is the dictator of the fictional nation of Pottsylvania, and the employer of the inept spies Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale. He could always be found in his underground hideout, "Central Control." However, it seems evident that he did answer to one man himself: the diminutive Mr. Big.
We admire the wrapping paper

As Usual, The Staff Is Ready To Go!
Did you know? - Waiting staff, wait staff, or waitstaff are those who work at a restaurant or a bar attending customers — supplying them with food and drink as requested. Traditionally, a male waiting tables is called a "waiter" and a female a "waitress." Some people prefer to use gender-neutral language, using waiter indiscriminately for males and females, server, waitperson, or waitron, an Americanism coined in the 1980s
Dinner Is About To Be Served
Red appears to be the in color
Did you know? - The word red comes from the Old English rēad. Further back, the word can be traced to the Proto-Germanic rauthaz and the Proto-Indo European root reudh-. This is the only color word which has been traced to an Indo-European root.
In Sanskrit, the word rudhira means red or blood. In the English language, the word red is associated with the color of blood, certain flowers (e.g. roses), and ripe fruits (e.g. apples, cherries). Fire is also strongly connected, as is the sun and the sky at sunset. Healthy light-skinned people are sometimes said to have a "ruddy" complexion (as opposed to appearing pale).
After the rise of socialism in the mid-19th century, red was to describe revolutionary movements. The word is also obviously associated with anything of the color occupying the lower end of the visible light spectrum, such as red hair or red soil.

Time To Visit
Neal and Diane must be discussing something interesting
"I know it is a TV but where is the channel selector???"
Did you know? - In North America, channel 1 is a former broadcast (over-the-air) television channel. During the experimental era of TV operation Channel 1 moved all over the shortwave and lower VHF spectrum, settling at 44-50 MHz between 1937 and 1941 although visual and aural carrier frequencies within the channel fluctuated with changes in overall TV broadcast standards prior to the establishment of permanent standards by the National Television Systems Committee.
While a handful of construction permits were issued for this final version of Channel 1, no station ever actually broadcast on it before it was taken out of service in the late 1940s and the frequency band re-assigned to public safety communications.
