California has a colorful history, since well before it was admitted to the Nation on September 9, 1850. Always a Rhino-Friendly State, We salute you.
California is a prosperous place, and many a Rhino has thrived there. Many still do today.
A note to those with a mind to pay attention: Stardom is not all it’s cracked up to be. Trust Us.
Queen Elizabeth I was 1) born September 7, 1533, and 2) short-tempered. She was the daughter of a snappy father, so she came by her disposition honestly.
Rhinos are known to be prickly, and We can see that it would be easier for everyone, if We weren’t. But somehow our wiring doesn’t adjust much, based on awareness.
Rulers are born with a silver spoon in the mouth, which must be unpleasant for their mothers.
‘Your Inner Rhino’ has been reliably informed that today has been the first day of September! It came as a surprise, frankly. Sort of mysterious, if you ask Us.
Time is funny and calendars are pretty funny too. By funny, We mean fundamentally inconceivable.
Rhinos like to know Critters that know Stuff, but not all the information We get computes. For Us.
On August 21, 1959, Hawaii was admitted as the 50th State. Congratulations, say all of Us Rhinos!
Islands! Wow! Wow, wow, wow!
So. On August 10, 1821, Missouri achieved Statehood. We salute Missouri therefore. A fine state, full of fine folk, who, We gather, prefer the product to the advertisement.
You may be less aware of the Hypsibema Missouriensis, Missouri’s state dinosaur. In actual fact, Rhinos were not around when this critter was in action, but it makes a good picture, and at ‘Your Inner Rhino’, that counts for a lot. One thing to notice is, it had a thousand teeth, which is a lot, for grinding up vegetation. Impressive dentition.
Rhinos average about 28 teeth.In case you wondered.
Gravity is a major force, acting on Rhinos, planets, and apples. In 1687 Sir Isaac Newton produced a book detailing his mathematical&scientifical theories about Gravity, based on his experience in an orchard. It got him to thinking… and Voila!
Gravity, We can’t deny it, it’s here to stay. At least for Now.
When a species is as old as the Rhino Family, you can believe We are flexible. We recall the values of the Olde or Traditional, and seek Revelation in the New and Different.
These adjustments are best achieved with a lot of Deep Breathing and Time. Time helps.
That’s today’s Rhino Tip. Take it or leave it.
