Now you know

From Uncle John's Bathroom Calendar, page a day:

John James Audubon. The National Audubon Society was founded in 1905 in his honor, which is a wildlife conservation society.
Audubon painted pictures birds. He shot them and posed the corpses with wires in life-like poses in order to paint them.

George Washington's family moto was Exitus acta probat, "The end justifies the means."

We have a local builder who is retired now, but his motto was "It is easier to ask forgiveness than it is to ask permission".
