“A day of worry is more exhausting than a week of work.”
– John Lubbock

Boy, I can attest to that, after worrying about tornadoes yesterday.  My two step-sons live in Moore, as well.  They are both okay and their homes were spared.  My heart goes out to all those folks in Moore and their families.

I haven’t added the brick yet.  That will come after I get this stage inked.  I am enjoying this very much!

What a terrible couple days it has been for Oklahoma.  I heard a wonderful story on the news a moment ago.  There were some guys who are fixing people’s tires for free in Moore.  They also just said that the confirmed death toll is 24.  It was reported at 51 & 91 earlier.  24 is awful, but still better.

About John Lubbock

John Lubbock, the multifaceted British banker, statesman, and scientist, was responsible for the institution of England’s monthly Bank Holidays, sometimes referred to as St. Lubbock Days. He was born in 1834 in England. Growing up, he learned science from his father’s friend Charles Darwin. He coined the terms Paleolithic and Neolithic to denote the different Stone Ages, and he wrote the well-regarded books Prehistoric Times and Ants, Bees, and Wasps. He died in 1913.
