Daily Bread for 11.2.15 – 2017

Good morning, Whitewater.

Monday will be sunny with a high of seventy. Sunrise is 6:31 and sunset is 4:45, for 10h 14m 34s of daytime. The moon is a waxing gibbous with 59.9% of its visible disk illuminated.

There will be a Friends of the Effigy Mounds meeting at 6:30 PM.

On this day in 1947, the ‘Spruce Goose’ flies, for the first and only time:

The Hughes H-4 Hercules (also known as the “Spruce Goose“; registration NX37602) is a prototype heavy strategic airlift military transport aircraftdesigned and built by the Hughes Aircraft Company. Intended as a transatlantic flight transport for use during World War II, it was not completed in time to be used in the war. The aircraft made only one brief flight on November 2, 1947, and the project never advanced beyond the single example produced. Built from wood because of wartime restrictions on the use of aluminium and concerns about weight, it was nicknamed by critics the “Spruce Goose”, although it was made almost entirely of birch.[1][2] The Hercules is the largest flying boat ever built and has the largest wingspan of any aircraft in history.[3] It is on display, and remains in good condition at the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon, United States.[4]

Puzzability begins a new series for the week, entitled, ominously, All Is Lost:

Young, inexperienced Holstein
Callow cow
What to Submit:
Submit the two-word phrase, with the longer one first (as “Callow cow” in the example), for your answer.
