Here is some random trivia...

In 1845, President Andrew Jackson's pet parrot was removed from his funeral for swearing.

A sneeze can exceed the speed of 100 mph.

Cleo and Caesar were the early stage names of Cher and Sonny Bono.

Ben and Jerry's sends the waste from making ice cream to local pig farmers to use as feed. Pigs love the stuff, except for one flavor: Mint Oreo.

The characters Bert and Ernie on Sesame Street were named after Bert the cop and Ernie the taxi driver in Frank Capra's "Its A Wonderful Life."

Finally, if you've been looking and looking for this... well, we have it at LoneStar Antiques!....

Oh, and here's a quote I like ...
Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until they speak.
(My niece-in-law, Lindsey, put that up on Facebook recently... and I thought it was great!!)
