Random Information

Sometimes we are presented with basically random, but informative items in newspapers and such.  So I thought I'd share a couple with you today, sort of interesting data and a chuckle or two.

From my hometown paper. The Delavan Times:   A favorite for snacks, s'mores and piecrust, the graham cracker was developed in 1829 by the Rev. Sylvester Graham.  The true graham cracker is made with graham flour, which is a coarsely ground wheat flour.

And another item:  Samuel Colt, inventor of the Colt revolver, "the gun that won the West," worked on the prototype in his father's textile plant. Colt once earned a living touring the country performing laughing gas demonstrations.

Also: Apples and blueberries are 90 percent pollinated by honeybees.

And from Montana Meanderings by Bonnie Yeo:
"You Know It's Going to be a Rotten Day When:
The bird singing outside your window is a buzzard.
You put both contact lenses in the same eye.
Your twin forgot your birthday.
You turn the news on and they're showing emergency routes out of the city.
Your income tax check bounces. "

I share this silly little post, as I am traveling in Montana.  Will be back this week to share some photos and interesting sights along our "tour" with our friends Judy and Larry. 

Have a good day!
