Lazy cats don't move...this is a mnemonic device if you want to remember your Roman numerals for the following: 50, 100, 500, and 1000. ( 50 is L, 100 is C, 500 is D and 1000 is M. )
For the planets in their proper order....
My Very Earthy Mother Just Sat Upon Nine Pins. (Of course, now they tell us that PLUTO is not a planet. Oh well.)

Please, feel free to share any that you know.
Do you know the writer/columnist William Safire? He wrote something that was to be read in case of disaster for the moon landing in 1969. The actor, Benedict Cummerbatch, read this recently in "Letters Live", a series of reading letters on stage in London. Glad that this letter was not necessary for us to hear at the time.
