Following Henry Comstock’s Discovery of Gold in 1859, with his Comstock Lode producing over a billion dollars from Silver and Gold Mining, settlers flocked to Nevada. Within two years it became a territory. Nevada then became a State on OCTOBER 31, 1864. The first mention of a grand celebration of Nevada’s admission was in a Journalist’s Diary in 1873. After that the Pioneer Society held a Banquet on October 31, 1889. The State of Nevada officially recognized its Birthday when Governor Roswell Colcord signed a Bill in 1891 making October 31 a judicial holiday when no Court business would be transacted on that day. In 1933 the State Legislature passed a bill to designate October 31 as Nevada Day, a discretionary State Holiday. In 1948 October 31 fell on a Sunday for the first time since the Nevada Day parade was held (in 1938) so the day was held on the following Monday instead. The law on this holiday was amended in the following year so if October 31 fell on a Sunday then Nevada Day state holiday was held on the following Monday. In 1971, the law governing holidays was amended to designate Friday as the state holiday when October 31 falls on a Saturday. On November 3, 1998, Nevada voters advised the 1999 legislature that they wanted to celebrate Nevada Day on the last Friday of October beginning in 2000. The legislature eventually complied. Since then, Nevada Day has been celebrated on the last Friday of October. Nevada Day is October 31 but is to be observed on the last Friday in October. .^^~^^.SYMBOLS.^^~^^. Nevada’s symbols include: the Desert Bighorn Sheep (State Animal); the Mountain Blue Bird (State Bird); the Lahontan Cutthroat Trout (State Fish); the Sagebrush (State Slower); the Ichthyosaur (State Fossil); The Black Fire Opal (State Precious Gem); and the Desert Tortoise (State Reptile). Nevada’s State Song is “Home Means Nevada”, the State Slogan is “Battle Born”, and the State Colors are Silver and Blue. The State Seal is the first symbol Nevada adopted (February 24, 1886). It is a Gold Seal embossed with the words “The Great Seal of the State of Nevada” around the outer edge. Within this is a composite picture showing the Mining, Agriculture, Industry, and Scenery of Nevada, under which is a scroll with the State Motto, “All for Our Country”. ♥ Shih Tzu Snuggles ♥ Misha ~Little Bear~

As far as Japanese attacks on non-continental states during World War II are concerned, the attack on Pearl Harbor gets the press. But in 1942, Japan bombed and landed troops on the Aleutian Island chain, and subsequently occupied the Islands of Attu and Kiska. It was a battle both against people and against the elements, and thousands died. Because the area was so remote and the weather so bad, it took the United States almost a year to claim back the area.^**.~.**^. *********TRIVIA.^**.~.**^.WHAT EXACTLY IS ALASKA DAY********* On March 30, 1867, U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward purchased Alaska from Russia for the price of $7 million or, roughly two cents an acre, because Alaska is made up of a lot of acres. At the time, the land was considered largely worthless, and the deal was ridiculed as what you've probably heard was called "Seward's Folly." The land formally transferred over on October 18th of the same year, and that day is now celebrated by trivia quizzes the world over.^**.~.**^. Nowadays, Alaska accounts for twenty-five percent of the country's oil production, most of its Salmon, Crab, Halibut and Herring, and apparently, even makes sure kids get letters from Santa Claus every year. Maybe it wasn't such a bad purchase after all.^**.~.**^. In 1952, a town in Alaska was named "The North Pole" in hopes of drawing a toy manufacturer to the area, apparently from people figuring that toy manufacturers prioritized town names above things like, you know, shipping costs. But the name seems to have worked out. While going to the actual North Pole is pretty challenging, tourists can make it to Alaska. People come each year to visit the place which has street lights decorated like Candy Canes, Police Cars colored Green and White (the Ambulances and Fire Trucks are Red), and a series of streets with names like Santa Claus Lane and Kris Kringle Drive.^**.~.**^. In addition, a store there called Santa Claus house has sent, according to their website, almost 2 million letters to kids and adults around the world from people who wanted a letter with that North Pole postmark affixed. The local Post Office there will also send out the letters you mail them with that same postmark. *********TRIVIA.^**.~.**^.SARAH.~.PALIN.^**.~.**^.********** A 2002 Washington Post Article said 820 Moose (or is it Meese? We're really not sure) were killed by cars each year in the State. In the 2008 Presidential election, Sarah Palin took heat for saying Moose stew and Moose burgers were some of her favorite foods, but in Alaska, Moose is what's for dinner? While most States' road kill consists of smaller animals, in Alaska, people run into Moose, Caribou and Bears. You might think that makes for a big problem, but really it's not a problem at all. Local law says that road kill is the property of the State and when you hit an animal, you have to call a State Trooper, who will come, clean up the meat and send it off to charities who will distribute it to the poor ♥ Shih Tzu Snuggles ♥ Misha ~Little Bear~

God made Man and Bird and Beast. But, God didn't make the Dog. He already had one. • **************HISTORY OF THE SHIH TZU************* The Shih Tzu's origins are ancient, and steeped in mystery and controversy. A recent study revealed that the Shih Tzu is one of the 14 oldest dog breeds, and dog bones found in China have proven that dogs were present there as early as 8,000 B.C.****** Some believe the breed was developed by Tibetan Monks and given as gifts to Chinese royalty. It is also speculated that the Shih Tzu was developed in China by crossing other breeds with the Lhasa Apso or Pekingnese. Regardless of where the breed was developed — Tibet or China — it's clear that the Shih Tzu was a Treasured Companion from the earliest times. Paintings, art, and writings from the China's Tang Dynasty (618-907 A.D.) portray small dogs similar to the Shih Tzu. References to the dogs appear again from 990 to 994 A.D. in documents, a few paintings, and carvings.****** In the 13th century, Marco Polo reported that the Mongolian Emperor Kubla Khan kept small "Lion" dogs with trained hunting lions — not as prey, but to keep the lions calm. Some believe these dogs were the Shih Tzu. ****** During the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), Chinese royal families kept Shih Tzu-type dogs, and the "Little Lion Dogs" or "chrysanthemum-faced" dogs were mentioned in several documents from that period. They were reportedly small, intelligent, docile dogs that strongly resembled Lions. ****** There isn't much mention of the dogs in documents from the 1700s to the early 1900s, but many pieces of art from that period depict small, shaggy, happy dogs. ****** In 1861, the Shih Tzu became popular in the Imperial Court after a royal concubine became the Empress of China. One of Empress T'zu Hsi's first royal edicts was that anyone caught torturing palace dogs would be put to death. Empress T'zu Hsi had a great love for animals and carried out extensive breeding programs under the direct care of palace eunuchs. ****** During Empress T'zu Hsi's reign, the Dalai Lama gave her a pair of magnificent Shih Tzus, reportedly the source of the imperial palace's little Lion dogs. It's said that the Shih Tzus had their own palace and were trained to sit up and wave their front paws when the Empress visited.****** After her death in 1908, many royal families competed to produce dogs of the finest coats and colors. Because of the competition, breeding practices were kept secret. Poor-quality dogs were sold in the marketplace, and good-quality dogs were often smuggled out of the palaces and given as gifts to foreign visitors or Chinese Noblemen.****** In 1928, the first Shih Tzus, a male and female pair, were brought to England from Peking by Lady Brownrigg, the wife of the quartermaster general of the north China command. In 1933, a Mrs. Hutchins brought a Shih Tzu from China to Ireland; this dog was eventually bred to Lady Brownrigg's. These three dogs formed the foundation of Lady Brownrigg's kennel.****** Maureen Murdock and Philip Price, her nephew, were the first to import and breed Shih Tzus in the United States. There were three Shih Tzu clubs by 1960: the American Shih Tzu Association in Florida, the Texas Shih Tzu Society, and the Shih Tzu Club of America. In 1963, the Shih Tzu Club of America and the Texas Shih Tzu Society merged to form the American Shih Tzu Club. In 1969, the breed was recognized by the American Kennel Club as a member of the Toy Group. •*******TRIVIA *** SHIH TZU FACTS********* •There is no such breed as an "Imperial" or "Teacup" Shih Tzu. These are simply marketing terms used by unscrupulous breeders use to indicate a very small or large Shih Tzu.****** •Shih Tzus are difficult to housebreak. Be consistent, and do not allow a puppy to roam the house unsupervised until completely trained. Crate training is helpful. ****** •The flat shape of the Shih Tzu's face makes them susceptible to heat stroke, because the air going into the lungs isn't cooled as efficiently as it is among longer-nosed breeds. He should be kept indoors in air-conditioning rooms during hot weather. ****** •Be prepared to brush and comb the Shih Tzu coat every day. It mats easily. ****** •While Shih Tzus are trustworthy with children, they're not the best choice for families with toddlers or very young children because their small size puts them at risk for unintentional injury. ****** •The Shih Tzu tends to wheeze and snore, and can be prone to dental problems. ****** •While all dogs eat their own or other animals' feces (coprophagia), the Shih Tzu seems especially prone to this behavior. The best way to handle the problem is never let it become a habit. Watch your Shih Tzu closely and clean up poop right away. ****** •To get a healthy pet, never buy a puppy from a backyard breeder, puppy mill, or pet store. Find a reputable breeder who tests her breeding dogs for genetic health conditions and good temperaments. ***** ♥ Shih Tzu Snuggles ♥ Misha ~Little Bear~

Pumpkins are actually pretty amazing when you learn about them~~~~~~ ** The word “pumpkin” come from the Greek “pepon” meaning large melon~~~~~~ ** I know, you’re thinking “Melon? Wha…?” but it’s true! Pumpkins are related to melons. They both belong to the Cucurbitacae family, as do both cantaloupe and cucumbers. Sounds weird, but when you think about it, canteloupes and pumpkins are pretty similar~~~~~~ ** It’s a fruit. I know, that’s also crazy, but it’s also true~~~~~~ ** Pumpkins first originated in Central America~~~~~~ ** Farmers grow 1.5 billion pounds of pumpkins each year. Yes, billion~~~~~~ ** There are over 30 kinds of pumpkins~~~~~~ ** For each cup of pure pumpkin, there are 30 calories and 197% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin A~~~~~~ ** Pumpkins are 90% water, which may help explain that low calorie count~~~~~~ ** Pumpkins have approximately 500 seeds each. Those seeds are a good source of protein~~~~~~ ** Pumpkin flowers are edible. If you’d ever eaten them~~~~~~ ** The largest pumpkin ever grown weighed more than 1 ton, 2,009 pounds to be precise, and was grown in Rhode Island in 2012. That’s a lot of pumpkin~~~~~~ ** It’s pretty seasonal, with 80 percent of the pumpkin supply available in the Month of October~~~~~~ ** A large portion of the crop comes from the Midwest~~~~~~ ** Illinois produces most of the processed pumpkins in the United States. Ohio and Pennsylvania also produce a lot of pumpkins, as does California~~~~~~ ** Morton, Illinois, home to the Libby pumpkin plant, proclaimed itself the pumpkin capital. The town’s website explains that the designation comes from being the home to Nestle Food Company’s pumpkin processing plant where over 85 percent of the world’s pumpkin is canned each Fall~~♥ Shih Tzu Snuggles ♥ Misha ~Little Bear~

In 1999, ESPN ranked Secretariat the 35th-best athlete of the 20th century, the highest-ranking racehorse on the list. **********TRIVIA**1973********* ```SPIRO AGNEW`` ********** During his fifth year as Vice President, in 1973, Spiro Agnew was under investigation by the United States Attorney's office in Baltimore, Maryland, on charges of extortion, tax fraud, bribery and conspiracy. In October, he was formally charged with having accepted bribes totaling more than $100,000 while holding office as Baltimore County Executive, Governor of Maryland, and Vice President of the United States. On October 10, 1973, Agnew was allowed to plead no contest to a single charge that he had failed to report $29,500 of income received in 1967, with the condition that he resign the office of Vice President. Agnew is the only Vice President in United States history to resign because of criminal charges ♥ Shih Tzu snuggles ♥ Misha ~Little Bear~

It also says that if we have much rain in October, we will have much wind in December and if we have a warn October, we can expect a cold February. ******CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY 1960-1967****** The CIA spent over $25 million in the 1960s retrofitting felines surgically in order to spy on foreign officials. Acoustic Kitty was a CIA project launched by the Directorate of Science & Technology in the 1960s attempting to use cats in spy missions, intended to spy on the Kremlin and Soviet embassies, recording the links between the buildings in the area. A battery and a microphone were implanted into a cat and an antenna into its tail. This would allow the cats to innocuously record and transmit sound from their surroundings. The project was abandoned due to the difficulty of training the cat to behave as required. Acoustic Kitty was considered a failure and canceled in 1967****** ♥ Snuggles ♥ Misha ~Little Bear~

The Anglo-Saxons called October Winterfylleth (or Winterfilth as Tolkien's hobbits put it) meaning the 'fullness' (not dirtiness) of winter. 2. The Welsh for October is Hydref (originally Hyddfref), a word signifying the lowing of cattle. 3. In Catholic Europe in 1582, October had only 21 days. Changing from Julian to Gregorian calendar, the days from 5-14 October were omitted. 4. The Hunt For Red October is the only film with October in its title to win an Oscar. 5. The month of October is not mentioned at all in any of William Shakespeare's plays. 6. Bounty mutineer Fletcher Christian named his first son Thursday October Christian, because he was born on a Thursday in October 1790. 7. Years later it was realized, he got it wrong: the boy should have been Friday October Christian. 8. According to a recent study in Italy, October is the best month for conceiving a boy baby. 9. “I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” (Lucy Maud Montgomery; Anne of Green Gables) ****Sunday Blessings*****Snuggles Misha ~Little Bear~

Keshia

Keshia Hi Ember. Thanks for stopping by when I was DOTD - I missed that because I don't turn the computer on every day. I don't turn it on because we are now at the farm and the internet is so slow. If I write to 4 friends it could take nearly half an hour. We were used to high-speed internet and this is very hard to accept this slow service. It is a painful process. But I would miss the computer if we could not get on at all. We will be here until harvest is complete - about mid-November. I will stop by from time to time.
