Daily Bread for 10.31.15

Good morning, and Happy Halloween, Whitewater.

We’ll have a rainy 10.31 in Whitewater, with a high of fifty. Sunrise is 7:28 and sunset 5:48, for 10h 19m 48s of daytime. The moon is waning gibbous, with 79.5% of its visible disk illuminated.

Filmmakers at the The Saline Project have turned their spooky Halloween photos (shared last year at FW) into a video:

On this day in 1776, King George has something to say:

In his address, the king spoke about the signing of the U.S. Declaration of Independence and the revolutionary leaders who signed it, saying, “for daring and desperate is the spirit of those leaders, whose object has always been dominion and power, that they have now openly renounced all allegiance to the crown, and all political connection with this country.” The king went on to inform Parliament of the successful British victory over General George Washington and the Continental Army at the Battle of Long Island on August 27, 1776, but warned them that, “notwithstanding the fair prospect, it was necessary to prepare for another campaign.”

On this day in 1968, a first for a new team:

1968 – Milwaukee Bucks Win First Game

On this date the Milwaukee Bucks claimed their first victory, a 134-118 win over the Detroit Pistons in the Milwaukee Arena. The Bucks were 0-5 at the time, and Wayne Embry led Milwaukee with 30 points. Embry became the first player in Bucks history to score 30 or more points in a regular season game.
