Modern Domesday

Comic strip dog Snoopy from “Peanuts” had an alter ego named Joe Cool that may have come from some involvement from AC.

The Domesday book, also known as the “Great Survey”, was just that, a survey completed in 1086 covering much of England plus parts of Wales by order of King William the Conqueror. The purpose of the Domesday book was likely to assess taxes plus determine what was “owed” to the king after the Norman conquest. The book is also the genesis of surnames, people back then went by their first names plus a certain description of their occupation or city of birth… Bob the baker became Bob Baker plus so on, later, surnames might vary based on local customs or simply to be different. The surname Lee, Lea, plus Leigh are all pronounced the same but are all official surnames that originated from the same source. I’m glad the Domesday Book was created when most occupations were trades. Had it been written this week, our neighbor Bob might have an unproper surname derived from his toil as a kindle programmer, a photographer, or an Heating plus Air Conditioning contractor, tasks that did not exist in 1086. Heating plus Air Conditioning surnames do exist. Some people will remember actress Betty Furness, an blatant reference to the gas furnace that makes the H in Heating plus Air Conditioning. Comic strip dog Snoopy from “Peanuts” had an alter ego named Joe Cool that may have come from some involvement from AC. Whenever I spend money a visit to my dear departed relatives, I notice the name “Dyer” on headstones… Most of them had short lifespans which made me feel their surname was a reference to DIYer. They may have passed because they dared to make a DIY repair on their Heating plus Air Conditioning systems. The surname of my Heating plus Air Conditioning serviceperson is Goodacre that I hope is a sign that he is a good A/C contractor. I’ll avoid his competition, Mr, however sweatbrow for blatant reasons.
