Waukesha High School
Class of 1955

Our High School is now the

- Recent surveys have confirmed what many people already knew - soccer is the world's most popular sport - by a large margin. One tongue-in-cheek survey has identified the second-most popular world-sport to be soccer rioting.

- The personal diary of King George III had this entry for July 4, 1776: "Nothing of importance happened today."

- Have you ever observed the leader of some nation acting in a peculiar manner? I offer for consideration one Queen Christina who ruled Sweden 1632 - 1654. She hated fleas with such a passion that she had a craftsman make a special cannon approximately one inch long for killing fleas. Tiny cannon balls and diminutive powder charges were kept at the ready for blasting Pulicidae(fleas). Contemporary accounts indicate that the cannon-ades usually (but not always) missed.


October, 2019

OCTOBER is an interesting month. Daylight Savings Time ends every year at 2 a.m. local time on the last Sunday of October. Halloween officially is celebrated on the final day of the month (Oct. 31), but its increased popularity has brought celebrations in the days and even weeks leading up to it. Pretty sure you can see this stuff already.

October in the Northern Hemisphere is similar to April in the Southern Hemisphere.

October has two birthstones; Tourmaline and Opal. Tourmaline is a favorite gemstone for many because it's available in a rainbow of beautiful colors. Opal gemstones are truly unique because each individual gem is adorned with a one-of-a-kind color combination.

Opal and Tourmaline.
