 Your heart beats over 100,000 times a day.

The ZIP in Zip-code stands for Zoning Improvement Plan.

(I believe it.)
Maine is the only state whose name is just one syllable.

Portland, Maine is the birthplace of poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
My dear mother taught eighth grade English which included a long section about Evangeline, a very moving long poem about Evangeline. Tears were often shed in my dear mother's eighth grade class in Mission Junior High about Evangeline..
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was quite the wordsmith.


Finally, The name 'Texas' comes from the Hasini Indian word 'tejas' meaning "friends". 
Tejas is NOT Spanish for Texas.

I like being a Texan.
