Your math homework


There are 19 days in January before the 20th. There are 31 days in December. Adding them together yields 50 days.To get the total number of days before January 20th subtract yesterday's date from 30 . Add the answer to 50.

Yesterday was the 20th. 30 minus 20 equals 10. 10 plus 50 equals 60.

When we get into December subtract the yesterday date from 50 to get the number of days left before January 20th.

Example: December 11th. 50 minus yesterday's date (the 10th) equals 40. 21 left in December plus 19 in January.

2. It has long been known

that even simple arithmetic is a problem for many. The post was an attempt to help those who were wanting to know but would not even try to figure it out. Do you have a problem with my attempt?

7. I was going to suggest the ignore list and clearly

youíre one step ahead. Iím always struck by those who seem intent on being the turd in the punch bowl.

9. You know, I really love the quote on your signature line.

I am reading a really profound book by a Potawatomie lady named Kimmerer. It is called Braiding Sweetgrass, and it has some beautiful things to say about ways we can change our paradigm, and thus the world around us.

10. Thank you.

As the mom of a very sensitive, empathic son...these are words I live by. At your suggestion, I just added Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer on my Audible reading list.

6. That works!

But does it work in January? Or do we just subtract the date from 20 (for January 20).
