As we sat for about an hour in the very busy waiting room, we watched the scrolling marquee on the front wall. Facts and questions rolled by and naturally many facts were related to Social Security. Some questions had nothing to do with Social Security; they were fun trivial facts. What kept us entertained was trying to answer the questions that rolled by between the Social Security facts. We were entertained and we were educated as we sat. "What continent sits in all four hemispheres?" The African Continent. I didn't know that. A woman sitting near us joined in and we really had some laughs saying "1 should have known that." Or "1 used to know that." How many bones are in a shark's body? None. Their bodies are made with cartilage, not bones. How long is a galactic year? We never heard of a galactic year and were curious to see the answer so we could get an answer to our question of "What is a galactic year?" The Sun's period of rotation around the center of the Galaxy, equal to about 225 million years. That's a galactic year. That sure surprised me. I found out that a full grown adult male giraffe has a tongue that is about 20" long. This may not seem important to daily life, but from this day forward, I don't think I will ever look at any giraffe without thinking about the length of its tongue. The most southern state capital is not in Florida; it's in Hawaii. We all firmly believed it was in Florida. As we sat waiting our turn, we sure learned a lot. If we travel on the Panama Canal from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean, what direction are we going? We knew this was a trick question. We could just tell it was going to be a trick question. We travel from west to east? No, we travel from Southeast to Northwest. I looked it up to make sure the answer was right. Several of my girlfriends and I listen to our radios to pass the time while driving or while sitting in our cars in slow traffic. We listen to stations where we can learn something and where we can educate ourselves. I like listening to KPBS radio which also airs programs from National Public Radio, Public Radio International and the British Broadcasting Corporation. The programs are more in depth than what regular TV or newspapers can report. For instance, on August 18th I learned about a program in San Diego City and County, called Project 25, where they partner with the United Way to take 25 hard core homeless people off the streets and provide them with a place to live and with needed services. Essentially following the lead of Los "Angeles Project 50, the program aims to cut costs of law enforcement and medical services connected directly with chronically homeless people. During the radio program, a study was quoted that found that 15 homeless San Diegans consumed $1.5 million in medica| services over a year and a half. One person landed in the emergency room 68 times in a single year. Giving these chronically homeless people a place to live and providing them with regular services will potentially save San Diego City and County millions of dollars. Setting up regular doctor's appointments instead of relying on emergency services will cut medical costs by millions of dollars each year. I thought that was very interesting information. Last week I turned on the radio, same station, and heard a conversation about the trapped miners in Chile. I know the news stations have had lots of interesting information about the miners, how long they will be underground and how they will survive. On KPBS I heard family members interviewed about the letters they write to the trapped miners and the letters they receive from the miners. That was a good lesson in keeping morale up. The letters are a small gesture that vill probably keep the people above and below ground sane. I know people who won't listen to KPBS radio because they think it's too liberal or too left. I don't know how a human interest story like the one about the miners can be considered too anything except educational. They air in depth stories that make me feel like I've learned something at a time when I could be bored'and feeling like The Julian News 5 CHECK OUT OUR SPECIALS Alfalfa and SOSO Pellets iil .'

I ,  7 bookalways like to find something to do, even if that something is to read nor take a nap. I like to learn. IA&I "Education is a journey, not a destination." In writing this, Jamie Katner actually took a partial quote and exchanged it a bit by taking it out of context. This is very okay because it originally had to do with SATURDAY prison reformation. By looking up the quote I found that out and also found out many ways the quote has been used through the years. In this context, education is something we can experience throughout SPI"]EIER 4m 2010 our lives and learning is never something we quit doing. If we keep our eyes and ears open; we can learn something new |L'O0,II - 2.'O01L every day. We won't always be pleased with what we learn, however AUCTION STARTS I believe it's important to continue learning.
