The first Daily Miscellany appeared on the web in August of  1992. Originally the Daily Miscellany had all of its content on a single page. As the content increased it was placed on 2 pages, then 3 pages. After nearly a year of 3 pages 7 day a week, I decided I needed a break.  I decided to combine Saturday and Sunday's "Soul Food"  on a single page and  Saturday and Sunday's "All the Rest"  on a single page.  This gave me a little break, but doing 3 pages every day is overwhelming! After a time I was just too busy with my other duties and my other two web pages.  In late 1991 I found it impossible to continue updating 3 pages a day. While the Daily Miscellany is no longer updated daily - it is not static.  Changes are still being made to these pages and you will find more than 2000 jokes, more than 1000 devotions, and more than 3000 quotations on these pages.

Notice that the due to the calendar moving backwards one day each year the weekends are off. They do not correspond to the calendar for the current year. There are history days for each day - but   "Soul Food"  and " All the Rest" are only present for 6 days of the week.  These days no longer correspond with the weekends.
