Oh No! Not more of his......

I was approached by an 'intervention' committee tonight who told me...

So I sat down and really did some serious...

about a subject. I decided to ask the neighbors, but I guess I've bugged them enough, because I found this....

on their door. So, I asked a pal, who gave me his input...

Another pal said he had a friend who might be able to help, so off he went to...

The guy came to me with what he considered a wonderful....

which I .....

about before figuring, well, they think......

anyway, so why not. I informed my 'Blog Team Leader' and I could tell he was impressed.

He immediately gathered his crew and sent them to search through my...

to collect some of my old, dusty, musty....

which they hustled right in with their usual cheerfull attitude.

They also gave me this 'special clock' and said I should consult it next time I had no ideas and the clock would help me get a good one.

Sensing their great affection for my fair treatment, I paid them in the customary manner.

Then, with my trusty office intern being eager to leave his chores and help

we retreated to the comfort and tranquility of my

where I proceeded to amaze the youngster with my typing technique.

After the Spellcheck Kitty was finished and told me go ahead to bed

I posted this buncha stuff just for you folks:
-The word "queue" is the only word in the English language that is still pronounced the same way when the last four letters are removed.
-Benjamin Franklin devised the first wet suit for divers, as well as a primitive version of today's flippers.
-Lake Baikal in Siberia is the only lake in the world that is deep enough to have deep-sea fish.
-A space vehicle must move at a rate of at least 7 miles per second to escape Earth's gravitational pull. This is equivalent to going from New York to Philadelphia in about 20 seconds.
-More people are allergic to cow's milk than any other food.
-Without any greenhouse effect, Earth would be cold and lifeless with an average temperature of 0.4 degrees Fahrenheit.
-A cat's arching back is part of a complex body language system, usually associated with feeling threatened. The arch is able to get so high because the cat's spine contains nearly 60 vertebrae which fit loosely together. Humans have only 34 vertebrae.
-The U.S. Mint was authorized to produce one-cent copper coins on April 2, 1792. Originally, there were four designs struck: the "chain" cent, the "wreathed" cent, the "flowing hair" cent, and the "liberty" cent.
-You blink every 2-10 seconds. As you focus on each word in this sentence, your eyes swing back and forth 100 times a second, and every second, the retina performs 10 billion computer-like calculations.
-Time slows down near a black hole; inside, it stops completely.
-If all the blood vessels in a single human body were stretched end to end, they would form a string capable of going around the world.
-Silent-movie star Mary Pickford once owned both the jewels The Star of Bombay and The Star of India.
-Star Trek's Mr. Spock had green skin because of traces of copper and nickel in his blood.
-If every OREO cookie ever made were stacked on top of each other (over 362 billion), the pile would reach the moon and back more than five times. If placed side-by-side they would encircle the earth 381 times at the equator!
-More people are allergic to cow's milk than any other food.
-Drinking chocolate mixed with milk, wine, or beer was considered a must at fashionable social events in the seventeenth century.
-Monaco is the second smallest country in the world and the principality has four distinct divisions. (1.) La Condamine, the business district. (2.) The Casino or Monte Carlo. (3.) Monaco-Ville which is on a rocky promontory and (4.) Fontvieille.
-Aluminum, glass, and paper are the three materials most easy to recycle.
-The premiere of Alfred Hitchcock's film Blackmail was on June 21st,1929, at the Regal Cinema, Marble Arch, London. Blackmail was the first full-length talking feature film in Britain.
-About 43 million years ago, the Pacific plate took a northwest turn, creating a bend where new upheavals initiated the Hawaiian Ridge. Major islands formed included Kauai, 5.1 million years old, Maui, 1.3 million years old, and Hawaii, a youngster at only 800,000 years old.
-The American woodcock, with its eyes placed toward the top of its head, can see backward and upward, and forward and upward, with binocular vision and, laterally, almost 180 degrees with each eye.
-Badminton was first recognized as an official sport in the Olympic Games during the 1992 Summer Games. More than 1.1 billion people watched badminton's Olympic debut on TV.
-The rare metal gallium melts at 86 degrees Fahrenheit. It is safe to touch; if you hold a piece of it in your hand and wait, it will melt.
-In the 1950s it took 27 hours to make one Marshmallow Peeps chick, today it takes about 6 minutes. One chick = 32 calories.
- Petrified feces is called 'coprolites'.
-There are over 45,000 recognized varieties of day lilies.
-There are five known species of 'loons' in the world.
-A Maine Common Loon life expectancy is 25-30 years.
-Princess Grace was NOT the 1st American Princess of Monaco. New Orleans born Alice Heine became the 2nd wife of Monaco's Prince Albert I, Prince Ranier III's great-grandfather in1889

So, until next time, take care and stay well.

Is that counting the ones in D.C.?

tshsmom said...

I didn't realize that loons lived that long!

We used to have a Common Loon that would fly by and holler in our bedroom window, EVERY morning, between 5-5:30 a.m. This went on for around 15 years. I always wondered if this was the same loon every I know.

I love the way you put those together. I have to wonder how you got my cat to pose for that?

Midlife Mom said...

Nice Office Assistant standing on your keyboard. I could use one like that. Ms. Kitty, who lives here with me, can't type at all. Can't spell, either.
Cute post. Thanks.

I always love it when you post your thoughts in pictures. Always funny and such a good posting idea.

Trivia are great, but with my short term memory, I loose it right after I read the next one.

Wait... why am I here?
