Trivia Tuesday

I usually post pictures to help you 'see' the trivia.

I'll just post three pictures today to tell about one of my pieces of trivia, okay? 

That's me with my new grandson Ransom.
Ransom was born on October 18th. 
I was thrilled to find out that he shares that birthday with my dear Granddaddy Andy!!!

So Ransom and his great-great granddaddy Andy were born on the same day!
That is my Granddaddy Andy on the right, behind my twin Peggy.
(My father is behind me.)
My great granddaddy, Will White, is in the middle.
I love that picture of 4 generations!

Here is Granddaddy Andy with his tomato stalk...
I've shown those two pictures of Granddaddy Andy before on this blog.
I was glad I had a reason to show them again!


So now for the rest of my random trivia, with no pictures...

The "sixth sick sheik's sixth sheep's sick"
is believed to be the toughest tongue twister in the English language.

Almonds are a member of the peach family.

How much does a gallon of water weigh? 10 lbs.

How many legs does a fly have? Six.

How many eyes does an earthworm have? None.

"Stewardesses" is the longest word that is typed with only the left hand.

The terms "fall" and "autumn" are used interchangeably,
though the latter is more popular among British people.

Sharks apparently are the only animals that never get sick.
As far as is known, they are immune to every known disease including cancer.
