You burn more calories sleeping than you do watching television.
Now I have a great excuse for my afternoon nap!

Oak trees do not produce acorns until they are fifty (50) years of age or older.
That may be about the time I grow my own pair of nuts. Hope not....I am working on it.

***************************************************************************

American Airlines saved $40,000 in 1987 by eliminating one (1) olive from each salad served in first-class.
I am going use that reduction in my annual grocery budget, see how it fingures in there. Hey, my family is largly Italian. They eat alot of olives.
That fishing boat is looking more assesible with each olive we don't eat.
**************************************************************************
Venus is the only planet that rotates clockwise.

(Since Venus is normally associated with women. What does this tell you!)
********************************************************************
Apples, not caffeine, are more efficient at waking you up in the morning.
I use cold water to wake up myhusband. That always works....but I will try throwing an apple at him while he sleeps. It's worth a try.

A duck's quack doesn't echo,

and no one knows why.
************************************************************************
Dentists have recommended that a toothbrush be kept at least six (6) feet away from a toilet to avoid airborne particles resulting from the flush.

(I keep my toothbrush in the living room now! Excuse me while I go and give the bathroom another cleaning with clorox--which incidentially is on my list of "most valuable brand"))

***************************************************
Richard Millhouse Nixon
