Random Facts/Thoughts I Thought You Should Know






Hello Blog Friends~

Today I decided to change up my Fun Fact Friday to Randoms Facts and Thoughts.

I did a little internet research and Googled..............

JULY 8!

This is my thought/facts and ramblings for the day:

On this day, in 1776, the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence was given in Philadelphia, PA.
What does that mean?
That all men are created equal
That all men have some rights given to them by God
That among these rights are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.


My thoughts: Aren't you glad that we ALL have rights?  I know that today, we need to pray for our Country.

On another note:

It is harvest time in our area. Harvest time is a special time to me. I grew up on a combine. Thank you to all the farmers spending their days in the fields so that we have grain to eat.
Did you know that today's combines can harvest 900 bushels of corn per hours. In the 30's a farmer could harvest about 100 bushels of corn by hand, in a 9 hour day.

On a lighter note,

Did you know that the chicken is the closest living relative to the T-Rex?

Ranch life fact,
Cows can sense storms coming and will lie down.

I found this fact a little scary,
95% of people text things they could never say in person.

And what do you think of this fact:
The Bible is the most shoplifted book in the world.

I bet you knew this fact but I am going to share it with you anyways:
Cows are herbivores, so they only have teeth on the bottom.

I always wondered about those darn ol' Butterflies.
The butterflies you get in your stomach when you see someone you like is actually a stress response caused by adrenaline.

Honey, Honey and Honey.
Honey is the only food that included all the substances necessary to sustain life, including enzymes, minerals, water and vitamins.

I found this fact interesting:
Elephant babies suck on their trunks the way human babies suck their thumbs.

My mom was wrong, was yours?
Strawberries have more Vitamin C than oranges.

I am sure happy about this one.
Nebraska is the birthplace of the Reuben sandwich.

And my last fact for today,
The Sand Hills are the biggest grass-covered sand dunes in the Western Hemisphere. They cover about one-fourth of the state. Only the Sahara and the Arabian deserts have bigger areas of sand.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Hope you have a good weekend!!
