UPDATE ON KEN LEONG

FROM: Kenneth Leong

Love to all of you, cherish every day-Ken

David Wysuph:
got this from Kit Leong last night
“Day#29 Update
 Ken continues to gain back his strength ….not there yet but much better than last week by a long shot!
 While his first Covid test last week came back negative, his test this  week came back positive so he has to start over with having two negative  results in a row to be declared Covid free. Needless to say he was  pretty bummed! He got swabbed  again today so we are keeping our fingers  crossed. This evening, we FaceTimed and I showed and read the cards and  letters that hae been sent to him. He was so appreciative and humbled  by the kind words, prayers and well wishes. Thank you for lifting his  spirits! Love to all of you!”

Looking for contributions for the Farsider.
Did you see recent articles in Farsider on Dave Wysuph, Bob Kosavilka
and Ken Leong? Personal stories by fellow retirees add much to the
publication and contribute to that feeling of keeping us together, in contact
even though we have spread out across the globe.
So send some pictures and
a story letting everyone know where you are, what you are doing, any hobbies
or pets, and your favorite watering hole.

Thanx, Leroy

CONSIDER THE IRONY!

I was operating a firearms training school for civilians at the time

DBA Private Police Officers Specialized Training (PPOST):
CAN YOU TELL HE WAS FROM NEW YORK CITY? 🙂 

I WAS DISCIPLINED (TIME OFF) FOR MENTIONING THAT I WAS A SJPD COP!

Fortunately, the NRA, CRPA and Conservative Politicians came to my defense! Tom McClintock led the way! And I would be remiss if I did not mention Brian Bennert and the POA for their assistance in affording me support and the council of the POA Attorney, Ron Yank.

CORONAVIRUS IS STILL WITH US!

The California D.O.T found over 200 dead crows on California Hwys recently, and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu. A Pathologist examined the remains of all the crows, and, to everyone’s relief, confirmed the problem was NOT Avian Flu. The cause of death appeared to be from vehicular impacts. However, during analysis it was noted that varying colors of paints appeared on the …bird’s beaks and claws. By analyzing these paint residues it was found that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with motorbikes, while only 2% were killed by cars.
The Agency then hired an Ornithological Behaviorist to determine if there was a cause for the disproportionate percentages of motorbike kills versus car kills. The Ornithological Behaviorist quickly concluded that when crows eat road kill, they always have a look-out crow to warn of danger. They discovered that while all the lookout crows could shout “Cah”, not a single one could shout “bike”

A BIT OF EDUCATION IS IN ORDER

The History Of Toilet Paper    
This is a bit of history that will truly make us thankful. We definitely need to thank the Chinese. Sometimes it’s good to read something that makes you smile! I know that you have always been curious, so now you’ll know.

1. The first recorded use of toilet paper was in 6th Century China.

2. By the 14th Century, the Chinese government was mass-producing it.

3. Packaged toilet paper wasn’t sold in the United States until 1857.

4. Joseph Gayety, the man who introduced packaged TP to the U.S., had his name printed on every sheet.

5. Global toilet paper demand uses nearly 30,000 trees every day.

6. That’s 10 million trees a year.

7. It wasn’t until 1935 that a manufacturer was able to promise Splinter-Free Toilet Paper.

8. Seven percent of Americans admit to stealing rolls of toilet paper from hotels.

9. Americans use an average of 8.6 sheets of toilet paper per trip to the bathroom.

10. The average roll has 333 sheets.

11. Historically, what you use to wipe depended on your income level.

12. In the Middle Ages, they used something called a gompf stick, which was just an actual stick used to scrape.

13. Wealthy Romans used wool soaked in rose water, and French royalty used lace.

14. Other things that were used before toilet paper include hay, corn cobs, sticks, stones, sand, moss, hemp, wool, husks, fruit peels, ferns, sponges, seashells, knotted ropes, and broken pottery (ouch!).
15. 70-75% of the world still doesn’t use toilet paper because it is too expensive or there is not sufficient plumbing.

16. In many Western European countries, bidets are seen as more effective and preferable to toilet paper.

17. Colored toilet paper was popular in the U.S. until the 1940s.

18. The reason toilet paper disintegrates so quickly when wet is that the fibers used to make it are very short.

19. On the International Space Station, they still use regular toilet paper, but it has to be sealed in special containers and compressed.

20. During Desert Storm, the U.S. Army used toilet paper to camouflage their tanks.

21. In 1973, Johnny Carson caused a toilet paper shortage. He said as a joke that there was a shortage, which there wasn’t, until everyone believed him and ran out to buy up the supply. It took three weeks for some stores to get more stock.

22. There is a contest sponsored by Charmin to design and make wedding dresses out of toilet paper. The winner gets $2,000.

23.. There was a toilet paper museum in Wisconsin, The Madison Museum of Bathroom Tissue, but it closed in 2000.

24. The museum once had over 3,000 rolls of TP from places all over the world, including The Guggenheim, Ellis Island, and Graceland.

25. There is still a virtual toilet paper museum called Nobody’s Perfect.

26. In 1996, President Clinton passed a Toilet Paper Tax of 6 cents per roll which is still in effect today.

27. The Pentagon uses, on average, 666 rolls of toilet paper per day.

28. The most expensive toilet paper in the world is the Portuguese brand, Renova.

29. Renova is three-ply, perfumed, costs $3 per roll, and comes in several colors including black, red, blue, and green.

30. The CEO of Renova came up with the idea for black toilet paper while he was at a Cirque du Soleil show.

31. Beyonce uses only red Renova toilet paper.

32. Kris Jenner uses only the black Renova toilet paper.

33. If you hang your toilet paper so you can pull it from the bottom, you’re considered more intelligent than someone who pulls it from the top. (Wonder how this was determined?)

34. Koji Suzuki, a Japanese horror novelist best known for writing The Ring, had an entire novel printed on a single roll of toilet paper.
35. The novel takes place in a public bathroom, and the entire story runs approximately three feet long.

36. When asked what necessity they would bring to a desert island, 49% of people said toilet paper before food.

37. Queen Elizabeth II wipes her royal bottom with silk handkerchiefs. Wonder if the royal chambermaid gets to wash those?? Yeah, sure wouldn’t want that job!

38. Muslims wipe their bums with their bare hand— always the left hand. They eat with their right hand. If you are caught shop-lifting, your right hand is cut off, forcing you to eat with your poopy left hand. Yeeeechhh!

This history was sent to you using my right hand.
