Here are the (more than) Five Things for Wednesday, March 14, 2012:
Make A Difference project needs volunteers! If you like to make crafts, then the Make A Difference project could use your help. The group makes blankets for hospitalized children, and they meet every Wednesday, 9 a.m., at the Center. For more info, click here.
“It’s not what you know but who you know that makes the difference.” The Mariner Grille hosts this month’s Network at Noon event. And this might surprise you, but seriously, it meets at noon. Admission is $12, and please RSVP with Deb Kelso of the Narragansett Chamber of Commerce at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Waffles, the bearded dragon! He wants to help you (well, your kids) make good-luck charms. I think that’s enticing enough, but if you need more info about the guild’s program, click here.
"You can run a lot of plays when your X is twice as big as the other guys' O. It makes your X's and O's pretty good." – Paul Westphal. Speaking of March Madness, the Broad Rock YMCA has a whole day of fun activities planned. For more info and a PDF, click here.
“It’s clearly a budget. Its got a lot of numbers in it.” – George W. Bush. The South Kingstown town council will have its fourth work session 6:30 p.m. tonight at the town hall. The school committee will also be present, so it should be a fun, swingin’ time. (Well, maybe not.)
Kind of a good thing. On this day in 1794, Eli Whitney’s patent for the cotton gin was approved. Of course, this development led to an explosion in the import of slavery, and he didn’t profit much from it, because the cotton gin was incredibly easy to rip-off and mass produce.
“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage – to move in the opposite direction.” Although he’s no longer alive, I’m sure Albert Einstein wouldn’t mind if you celebrated his 133rd birthday today. Think about him and gravity whilst you stay rooted to the ground. Also, e equals mc squared and what not.
