Daily Bread for 1.19.16 – 2017

Good morning, Whitewater.

Tuesday in town will be partly cloudy with a high of fourteen. Sunrise is 7:20 and sunset 4:51, for 9h 31m 18s of daytime. The moon is a waxing gibbous with 77% of its visible disk illuminated.

Whitewater’s Urban Forestry Ad Hoc group meets at 4:30 PM, her Alcohol and Licensing Committee at 5:45 PM, and her Common Council at 6:00 PM.

Born 1.19.1809, it’s Edgar Allan Poe‘s birthday.

On this day in 1865, the 15th reserves well-deserved praise:

The 15th Wisconsin Infantry was received in Chicago on its way back home to Madison. The regiment was honored by the city for its accomplishments. It had fought in the battles of Perryville, Stones River, Orchard Knob, Lookout Mountain, Missionary Ridge, Chickamauga, Resaca, and Kennesaw Mountain. Ninety-four of its members had died from combat and another 242 from disease.

On 1.19.1939, it’s a world record for a Wisconsinite:

Here’s the Tuesday game in Puzzability‘s Asia Fantasia series:

This Week’s Game — January 18-22
Asia Fantasia
We’re working on eastern time this week. For each day, we’ll give a three-by-three letter grid in which we’ve hidden the name of a major city in Asia, followed by its country, with a total of 11 or more letters. To find it, start at any letter and move from letter to letter by traveling to any adjacent letter—across, up and down, or diagonally. You may come back to a letter you’ve used previously, but may not stay in the same spot twice in a row. You will not always need all nine letters in the grid.
Example:
DHG/IAQ/RUB
Answer:
Baghdad, Iraq
What to Submit:
Submit the city and country (as “Baghdad, Iraq” in the example) for your answer.
