Well, it's Friday again. Time for more fun facts. But, there will be no facts next week because...we're going to B.C. We're going on a houseboat with 2 other families (and us, making 3) on a boat that sleeps 22 people. get ready for crazy! We're leaving on Sunday, getting on the boat on Tuesday, getting off on Saturday, and I think we're getting back on Sunday night. A whole week. Then, when we get back, school starts. well, for everybody else it does. I still have to wait to get all my stuff in. Jaxon starts preschool this year. It's about 10 minuets from our place and he's excited. Jacob and Catricia are homeschooled this year, too. More crazy. But, let's get this weeks fun facts under way.

2. certain types of frogs can be fully frozen, thawed and still survive.
3. Bullet proof vests, fire escapes, windshield wipers and laser printers were all invented by women
4. Sherlock Holmes never said "Elementary, my dear Watson,"

Fun Fact Fridays

This Friday came much to quickly. I didn't even realize today was Friday. I've been busy, I sprained my foot yesterday and am hopping along (My sister calls me kangaroo girl.) I'm doing diagnostic testing for school next year ( I think it's a rip off to do school in August)
So here's your four fun facts for the day, hope you enjoy them.
1. your stomach produces a new layer of mucus every two weeks, otherwise it would digest itself.
2.ten percent of Russia's government income comes from the sale of Vodka
3. Einstein couldn't speak fluiently when he was nine years old. his parents thought he might be retarded.
4. Ketchup was sold in the 1830's as medicine

Hope you enjoyed these cool fun facts.

Too many...

I have way too many blond moments for someone whose blond came from a box.
I was making muffins the other day and was going to mash the banana's to put in the batter. So I put them in a bowl, took a fork and started mashing and mashing but it wasn't turning to goop. The reason for this was: I didn't peel the banana's before I started mashing them.
It's moments like these when I have to look back and laugh at myself.
