    While today we have gentle wind chimes or the jarring tones of an iPhone alarm to rouse us, workers in industrial Britain had a different alarm clock — the knocker-upper. Knocker-uppers slept during the day, allowing them to get the early start needed to rouse tired factory workers in time for them to report for duty. The career had its hiccups — knocker-uppers needed to be able to wake just their customers and not the whole street block. They used long rods to tap on their customers' windows, as well as other inventive options like pea shooters, hammers, and rattles. Knocker-uppers were employed in urban and rural areas until well into the 1970s, and are even referenced in Charles Dickens' work.

    It is the 5th mode of the major scale as it is derived from the 5th note of the major scale. It’s is also sometimes referred to as a dominant scale because the 5th degree of the major scale is called the dominant

  17. IIRC all my posts here are things I heard or saw.

    This one came during the recent Texas freeze out.

    I'd gone to my daughters to help with pipes and such, and to stay and be with the grandkids. I was in my socks and in a room that hasn't been used in awhile. The wood floors are very slick and I slipped and fell pretty hard. She heard the fall and checks to see if l'm ok.

    When I came out and explained what happened , she said (being a bit of a wiseass, like her father) , "Do I have to give you some of Moe's rubber socks?".

    Moe was a guy who lived at the house for awhile and I guess had socks with rubber on the bottom.
