The couple viewed the Loew's State engagement in 1937 as Skelton's big chance. They hired New York comedy writers to prepare material for the engagement, believing they needed more sophisticated jokes and skits than the routines Skelton normally performed. However, his New York audience did not laugh or applaud until Skelton abandoned the newly written material and began performing the "Doughnut Dunkers" and his older routines.  [h] The doughnut-dunking routine also helped Skelton rise to celebrity status. In 1937, while he was entertaining at the Capitol Theater in Washington, ., President Franklin D. Roosevelt invited Skelton to perform at a White House luncheon. During one of the official toasts, Skelton grabbed Roosevelt's glass, saying, "Careful what you drink, Mr. President. I got rolled in a place like this once." His humor appealed to FDR and Skelton became the master of ceremonies for Roosevelt's official birthday celebration for many years afterward. 
I stand corrected, Heather! To me, it looked like one of those new-fangled digital thermometers that I don’t like, as I’ve wasted money on them and they don’t register my temp! I was taught to do basal temp testing on an old fashioned thermometer & didn’t realize there was a difference in different new ones! I’m guessing I’d find one of those online, eh, as my local drug stores are not great. Thanks for clearing that up for me. BTW, this morning I enjoyed reading your article on 15 things to do for my adrenal issues. THANKS AGAIN.
A useful and straightforward calculation can be done if we assume that interest, after expenses, taxes, and inflation is zero. Assume that in real (after-inflation) terms, your salary never changes during your w years of working life. During your p years of pension, you have a living standard that costs a replacement ratio R times as much as your living standard in your working life. Your working life living standard is your salary less the proportion of salary Z that you need to save. Calculations are per unit salary (., assume salary = 1).
