Weekend Roundup ~~ 05-19 (for letter "E")
the Letter "E". Prompts are:
(A) Starts with "E"; (B) A Favorite; (C) Evening; and (E) Reflection(s).
(A) Starts with "E": "Egg" starts with "E".
Notice the fry-brown marks on the sides of the muffin. They are fried making them a little tough and brittle at the fry marks. I broke a tooth on one. But in England, London for sure, English Muffins on your Egg McMuffin are very tender and yummy. Like REAL MUFFINS should be. Here the only way to make them yummy is to put MacDonald's Strawberry Jam on them. You must ask for that.
(Ketchup is for the ham and the egg and cheese. I eat them with a knife and fork. The top half of the muffin I put Strawberry on it and have it with my coffee.)
This "Egg Scale" would tell her if the egg was small, medium, large, or extra large. BTW, a 'large' egg weighs approximately two (2) ounces. A dozen 'large' eggs being sold must weigh at least 24 ounces.
Try weighing your selected dozen at the grocery store.
(D) Some Lagniappe: "Electronics" also starts with "E". I was introduced to Ham Radio in college, the University of Nebraska had a 'school station and call letters,' and one of my rides to school from home was a Radio Ham.
I learned electronics in the Army with a 43 week course, "Nike Hercules Fire Control System Maintenance." I graduated 3rd in my class, two Warrant Officers were ahead of me. I was not trying for any honors. That and a "B" from a Transistor Physics extension class from the University of Texas convinced me that even though a college drop out (University of Nebraska, three semesters), that I was not so "stupid" after all.
In the Fall of 1960 or early Spring 1961 I passed my Novice Amateur Radio Operator license and became a Ham Radio Operator. My call then was KN5GYM. I have been licensed ever since, now holding an Extra Class, the top level, license.
Pictured above is my key to reading the old Popular Electronics magazines. Issues are available from October, 1954 until April 1985. After that it continued until January 2003 with a couple of different names and also included computers.
