It’s already time for another Flash Facts Friday… this week has just flown by with crazy head colds that keep coming back and school programs. This morning, I found that my mini-Irises are already in full bloom – and the weatherman is calling for more snow! 😐 I’m not sure if my Helleborus Rosemary can handle another snow, but since they’re winter flowers, I have more hope for them than the Irises.
Okay, onto the facts:
Friday Fact #1: Friday or Man Friday, was the name given to the native that Robinson Crusoe saved from cannibals in the 1719 novel Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe (Foe).
Friday Fact #2: Both Mary Ann Nichol’s and Mary Jane Kelly’s bodies were found on a Friday morning, 3 months apart in Whitechapel, 1888. Of the canonical five, they were the very first and the very last of Jack the Ripper’s victims. Of course, many more murders have been pinned on the enigmatic serial killer, but only 5 have been recognized by authorities as indisputably his.
Friday Fact #3: Today is Friday, February 21, 2014. It was also that same exact date in 1902, 1908, 1913, 1920, 1930, 1937, 1942, 1948, 1958, etc…the pattern is as such:
1902-1908= 6 years
1908-1913 = 5 years
1913-1920= 7 years
1920 – 1930 = 10 years
And then you go backwards again;
1930-1937 = 7 years
1937-1942 = 5 years
1942-1948 = 6 years
1948-1958= 10 years
And then you go forward again starting with every 6 years. Whichever happens before the 10 year gap will start the next gap.
