Interesting about AM and PM......
The meaning of AM and PM when it comes to time I thought it meant PM = pre midnight and AM = after midnight
The 12-hour system divides the 24 hours of a day into two periods lasting 12 hours each. The first 12-hour period is designated as am. It runs from midnight to noon. The second period, marked pm, covers the 12 hours from noon to midnight.
The abbreviations am and pm derive from Latin:
- AM = Ante meridiem: Before noon
- PM = Post meridiem: After noon
Using numbers from 1 to 12, followed by am or pm, the 12-hour clock system identifies all 24 hours of the day. For example, 5 am is early in the morning, and 5 pm is late in the afternoon; 1 am is one hour after midnight, while 11 pm is one hour before midnight.
Ante meridiem is commonly denoted as AM, am, a.m., or A.M.; post meridiem is usually abbreviated PM, pm, p.m., or P.M. Like many other sources, timeanddate.com uses am and pm, but the other variants are equally correct and widely used.
Where Is the 12-Hour Format Used?
Most countries around the world today use the 24-hour system. The 12-hour format, including am and pm, is officially used only in the United States, Canada (except Québec), Australia, New Zealand, and the Philippines.
Why Does the Day Have 24 Hours?
The Egyptians are thought to be responsible for dividing the day into 24 equal parts. One account suggests that this custom evolved because the Egyptians commonly used the base 12, counting the 3 joints in their fingers, not including the thumb.
|12:00 (midnight)||0:00 (beginning of the day)|
|12:00 pm||24:00 (end of the day)|
Whether you've got company staying over, or you just had a long night, or you just want an easy breakfast recipe the next morning. Well, this is perfect to get the day started right! This has all the goodies like eggs, ham, cheese, and some sour cream to bring it all together! And, since this recipe uses refrigerated and freezer aisle shortcuts, it couldn't be easier--or tastier! For a smaller amount, just cut the recipe in half and use a 9x9 casserole dish. Or make the whole thing, divided into 2 9x9 casseroles and freeze one for another day.
- 8 eggs
- 2 cups sour cream
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 (30-ounce) bag frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
- 1 1/2 cups diced cooked ham
- 1 (12-ounce) bag frozen chopped broccoli florets, thawed
- 1 (8-ounce) block cheddar cheese, shredded

I certainly remember that. Just about tossed out of bed at 6am. Jumped up to see if Kristen was ok. Lay in bed with her to keep her calm. Brian due on the 22nd but after that quake he decided to make his appearance early on the 14th! Lucy, our collie, would stand up and look nervous just seconds before the next after shock hit.
And births this date include...
1943 – Joe Pesci, American actor
Very odd life of having and adopting children and the problems the children had. Strange woman! And a TYPICAL Hollyweirdo!
