DAILY CALENDAR CHALLENGE #043 – FEBRUARY 12
The very first thing I noticed on all of my calendars was that today was the real birthday of Abraham Lincoln. Not the pretend President’s Day Birthday Congress created to honor all presidents on a single day. (Isn’t it a shame that a lot of school kids think all of our presidents were born on the same day?) And the above daguerreotype portrait of Lincoln was taken 150 years ago in 1863. Click on the photo for the enlarged version and stare into his eyes. Amazing!
Hint – The logic is to do an add and multiply routine. Actually, it’s rather simple.
OK, it took me a couple of combination tries, but I did solve it. If you need the answer, I’ll add it in the comments.
This is what the Polish people do to celebrate Shrove Tuesday/Fat Tuesday/Mardi Gras. The Pączki is an oversized glazed jelly doughnut. Originally it was filled with a prune or plum jam. Today they are made filled with a variety of fruit jellies. Sometimes you’ll find a custard filling version which will be dusted with powdered sugar instead of being glazed. My grandmother used to make these every year. Today they’re available in many super markets and bakeries. I have two red raspberry and two custard I’ll be sharing with friends tomorrow. We don’t need no stinking beads!
