On this day in history: February 20, 1971 - An erroneous warning is emitted on the Emergency Broadcast System causing a number of stations to go off the air, and others to completely ignore the alert (thus pointing out that many key stations would not react to any emergency broadcast over the system.)

Born on this day in history: February 20, 1967 - Kurt Cobain (1967-1994) Born in Aberdeen, WA, musician Kurt Cobain and friend Krist Novoselic formed rock band Nirvana (1986), which performed music dubbed "grunge." Nirvana's breakthrough hit "Nevermind" sold ten million copies, earning a reported $550 million in the U.S. alone. Cobain, who married rock singer Courtney Love in 1992, began using heroin and suffered in and out of treatment until his suicide by shotgun in 1994.

NEW from DeWalt: THE 16-D RAPIDFIRE - A new Nail Gun, made by Dewalt, has just been introduced. It can drive a 16-D nail through a 2 X 4 at 200 yards. This makes construction a breeze, you can sit in your lawn chair and build a fence. Just get your wife to hold the fence boards in place while you sit back, relax with a cold beer and when she has the board in the right place, just fire away. With the hundred-round magazine, you can build the fence with a minimum of reloading. After a
day of fence building with the new DeWalt Rapid fire nail gun, the wife will not ask you to build or fix anything else again. Click to enlarge.

The Weather: Yesterday was a beautiful day. The afternoon temperature was 67°, the sky was blue and clear, there was no wind, and the birds sang loudly. Today promises to be equally excellent. There are storms predicted for Saturday and Sunday. Looking at the sky this morning, this seems unlikely, but the weather can (and does!) change rapidly here. We shall see.
