Libraries are More Popular than Movies

Timothy Birdnow

This is surprising; seems more Americans went to the library last year than went to the movies.

From the article:

Yes, according to a recent Gallup poll(the first such survey since 2001),visiting the local library remains by far the most common cultural activity Americans engage in. As reported earlier today by Justin McCarthy:

"Visiting the library remains the most common cultural activity Americans engage in, by far. The average 10.5 trips to the library U.S. adults report taking in 2019 exceeds their participation in eight other common leisure activities. Americans attend live music or theatrical events and visit national or historic parks roughly four times a year on average and visit museums and gambling casinos 2.5 times annually. Trips to amusement or theme parks (1.5) and zoos (.9) are the least common activities among this list.”

The results of the Gallup poll have been broken down in a range of different ways, all of which you can peruse at your leisure, but two of the more interesting (though unsurprising) findings are that women report visiting the library nearly twice as frequently as men do, and that libraries are visited most by adults in low-income households and least by adults in high-income households.

I'm surprised; people have computers for that. But it IS free and you can get a novel or magazine or whatnot. Much better than the movies, which keeps getting more and more expensive and now features commercials as well.

And where else do you find a hot librarian with glasses and a wild streak under her mild exterior?  Come on guys, admit it; we've all fantasized about a librarian at some point. Never did that about a popcorn girl.

1 Our local library always has a bunch of cars in the parking lot; at least half the customers are mothers with at least one kid in tow, and they go to the automated check-out machines with armfuls of books.

2 That's great!  Glad to see people are reading books. Computers aren't the same.

3 Well, speaking of hot librarians, just rent a copy of the movie "The Music Man" and drool over Shirley Jones as the librarian Marian Paroo. She was hot enough to snare the cynical salesman Harold Hill. Splendid musical with splendid music and acting, great story. And if you want more fun, look up Meredith Willson's autobiographical book about the writing and producing of the show: "But He Doesn't Know the Territory." Fantastic writing; it'll make you want to see the movie (or the show) again.

Jack Kemp sent us a copy for Christmas a couple of years or so ago, and Martha bought copies to give to the pertinent people at Wayzata High School to use to lobby them to do the show at the school. Problem is, in high school it's darn near impossible to find a kid who can do Harold Hill.

This medication is used to help relieve severe ongoing pain (such as due to cancer). Oxycodone belongs to a class of drugs known as opioid (narcotic) analgesics. It works in the brain to change how your body feels and responds to pain.

The higher strengths of this drug (more than 40 milligrams per tablet) should be used only if you have been regularly taking moderate to large amounts of opioid pain medication. These strengths may cause overdose (even death) if taken by a person who has not been regularly taking opioids.

Do not use the extended-release form of oxycodone to relieve pain that is mild or that will go away in a few days. This medication is not for occasional ("as needed”) use.

If you’re looking for the best CBD oil for sale on the market, it pays to do your homework. While there are many places to buy CBD oil, many sites are different and have different pros and cons. Here are some examples of places where you can buy pure CBD oil for pain, CBD vape juice, CBD hemp oil, CBD capsules, CBD vape oil, CBD gummies, CBD cream, Wax, crystals, and other options.

CBD Oils and Edibles

This site is also known as Cannabinol Life. They have a variety of services that commend them as an excellent choice. For example, you can get 10% off your order just by inputting the coupon code they have at the top there. They are also recommended by places like the Expo site and Medical Marijuana Doctors. They are well on their way to getting the USDA organic certification to, which is excellent for those who want to monitor what goes into their body in terms of chemicals. You can get gummies here called "Hempful Gummies” which are tasty and have the desired medical effect as well. They have isolate available as well in 10 grams, for example. This stuff is highly powerful and will be best for those who know what they’re doing already. You can cook it into your products, for example.


Joy Organics

Joy Organics has a lot to recommend it. For example, you can look at its full oil guide to get a sense of what you might want to buy. This makes it much easier to make sure that you’re getting what you want. This way, you don’t need to worry about trying one oil after another until you get the one you want, for example. Plus, the site’s products are completely free of THC, which is a big advantage if you want to go without having your mind muddled at all since THC is psychoactive. You could instead get just the calming effect without the part from THC. You get free shipping here, and they even have a money-back guarantee. They also have a variety of tinctures and even salves, which are particularly good for any kind of muscle ache or other problem which could be eased by a topical cure. They make all of their products organically as well, so you know that you’ll be free of any kind of harsh chemicals.

Diamond CBD

If you visit this company’s webpage, you can get coupons that will give you up to 40 percent off. There are unique options at Diamond, such as getting gift boxes that have a variety of different products in them. They have products like the Pain Master that will help you reduce whatever kind of pain you’re feeling easily. You also have the unique option to take the supplement inside of honey. This means you can drop the honey into tea so that you can both wake up and stay calm at the same time. That’s a potent combination. Overall, the best CBD oil for sale on the market will depend on what kind of situation you’re in. You should buy CBD oil based on what you need it for. So, for example, pure CBD oil for pain will work if you want to keep your head clear. Other products, such as a pure salve, will work better if need to take away the pain from some other condition. If you don’t like taking the oil in tinctures, it can help to get the food products that have the oil in them so that you can get the amount that you need that way instead.
