Trivia Tuesday (and 3 cute granddaughter pics) ...

Jupiter is bigger than all the other planets in our solar system combined.

TOM SAWYER was the first novel written on a typewriter.

The name "Jeep" came from the abbreviation used in the army. G.P. for ‘General Purpose’ vehicle.

Intelligent people have more zinc and copper in their hair.

(I don't even need to pluck some of Sam's hair to know he's got lots of zinc and copper.)

The national anthem of Greece has 158 verses.

This little girl will have a little brother within the next week....

I have many more family pics to show you, and I will soon.
In the mean time, here's some more random trivia...

The world's first rodeo was in Pecos, Texas, July 4, 1883.

It takes about 142.18 licks to reach the center of a Tootsie pop.

 Speaking of that, Tootsie Pop didn't get any votes in my last poll,
as to which candy would you rather have in your Halloween bag. 
Snickers won, with Peanut M&Ms coming in second.
(I voted for the Peanut M&Ms.)

In the poll before that, Roller Coaster won, as to which theme park ride do you like most.
(I voted for Tilt-A-Whirl.)

I have a new poll up (upper right).
I hope you can vote on it!

My hometown...

I am thinking of my hometown now. Mission, Texas. And McAllen, Texas. And Mercedes, Texas, where I was born. And Donna, Texas, so near there...
