Did you know? ....

... that Target sells PANERA BREAD Broccoli Cheddar Soup?

Sam went to Target earlier this week to get us some low-carb food, as we are kind of dieting, and he found that soup... and found it was low-carb... So now we can enjoy it in our own home!
Did you know that January is National Soup Month?

Did you know that on the corner of NE Loop 820 and Denton Highway, there is a cop who is always watching the traffic from upstairs in the U HAUL place?
I was stopped at the red light and saw him.  
Even though I was stopped at the red light,
my very first thought was: "Am I speeding?"
(That's my default thought whenever I see a police man.)
Then I realized that he was (is) a cardboard cop.
Well, I was relieved.

Did you know that the iPhone 6 - which Sam gave me for my birthday -
takes much, much, MUCH better pictures than the iPhone 5?
Here's a picture I took yesterday morning,
just outside our side door....
Well, that sky was beautiful, but my old phone would never have captured its beauty like my new phone.

Did you know that the word “typewriter” is the longest word in the English Language that can be spelled with the top of the keyboard?

Did you know...that Oscar, the Academy Award statuette, was named for Texan Oscar Pierce,
whose niece worked in Hollywood for the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences.
When she saw the gold statuette, she reportedly said, 
“Why, that looks just like my Uncle Oscar.”
 So the Oscar is a Texan!

Well, that's my post for now.
I hope you have a good weekend!
