1. Bob Dylan's real name is Robert Zimmerman.
2. Russians generally answer the phone by saying, 'I'm listening.'
3. The citrus soda 7-UP was created in 1929; '7' was selected because the original containers were 7 ounces. 'UP' indicated the direction of the bubbles.
4. Wasps are territorial. Ken and Pat told us this and gave us a fake wasp nest. Now we're eating breakfast outside in safety! (Really. A certain wasp used to come around. Now he doesn't.)
