Did You Know???

On this first day of June, I thought I would load you up with some very interesting...but totally useless information! Here goes....

Did you know that.....

1. one quarter of the bones in your body are in your feet?
2. 12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents...daily?
3. a dragonfly has a life span of only 24 hours?
4. a "jiffy" is an actual unit of time for 1/100th of a second?
5. most cows give more milk when they listen to music?
6. most lipstick contains fish scales? .....ew!
7. Pinocchio is Italian for "pine head"? ...although I always thought it was closer to pine nut!
8. the average person falls asleep in 7 minutes? ....they don't know my husband!
9. to escape the grip of a crocodile's jaws, push your thumbs into its eyeballs, it will let you go instantly? ....if you did that to me, I'm pretty sure I'd let go too!
10. Winston Churchill was born in the ladies' room during a dance?

So, there you have it...several totally insignificant, useless tidbits of information that will make you wonder why you stopped by here today!

Wow! I loved each and every tid bit!

How is everyone doing? I've been keeping your friends and family in my prayers. Any updates?

So if I say "in a jiff", which is shorter, it must mean 1/1000th of a second! LOL! Enjoyed .... ♥

Hi Nancy, warm greetings to you in Jesus,

Off topic and for your info, I have turned off my blog 'aspiring f.o.o.L., a woman at the well' - a tough decision to be sure. The only way to do that short of deleting the blog entirely is to restrict access. After I've had time to copy out any of my own writing that I want to keep, I will at that time delete the blog entirely.

In the meantime and unfortunately, the message reading that the blog is "open to invited readers only" is misleading. It's just plain wrong :) . And so I want to be sure you know that it's not a question of invitation at all. You know well that you'd be at the top of any such list :) .

If there's anything you want a copy of from the blog, let me know by email. Also I'd like to still visit your site... K?...

Much love to you and prayer for you, aspiring...

Aspiring....I'm so sad. I sent you an email the other night...please let me know if you got it...I sent it to a Yahoo account. I want to make sure that I have your correct email!
Yes, yes, yes I want copies of some things....how about just about everything that you've written? I'm still waiting for the satchel of stuff!
I think the world of you, K, and I'm so sad that I won't have a place to read what's on your heart.
Unless of course...you email me what's on your heart!
My email is nancywidener at commcomp dot net. I look forward to hearing from you!
