    1. I am NOT having my hair grimmed. Trimmed. not Grimmed. But that's a little bit funny because Al and I just began watching the TV series Grimm.

    2. I'm letting my hair grow out a bit too. Don't know how long I'll let it get, but longer than it is now. That was one bad haircut you got. :)

    3. I figured you meant trimmed. Now if you can just find someone that knows the meaning of trim. :)

  3. And on that note about dust, from the observations of a person who cleans other people's houses, those who do not have any pets at all have much less dust. So it's not just dead skin from people, which doesn't seem to cause as much of a problem if you stay on top of it. It's the animal dander that makes a place really dusty!

  9. We have a lot of Oak trees on our 10 acres- we got tons of acorns this year- but this is what I read when googling Oak trees:
    •Fruit of the oak is called acorn. Production of acorns starts at the age of 20 to 50 years.
    •After about 20 years, these trees start producing acorns. Some trees may even take up to 50 years to produce the first lot. Yearly production of acorns for a mature tree may touch around 2,200 acorns per year
    • Oak trees can live up to 200 years or more, and mature trees have the capacity of absorbing more than 50 gallons of water in one day.
    and if you want even more info read on:

  13. I had no idea about every single one of these! I had no idea that it's even possible that a sound - like the duck's quack - doesn't echo! Thank you so much for sharing these. I just had to share them with my hubby right away ;)
    Have an amazing weekend! Lots of hugs to you!

  14. I always like your lists of 'amazing facts,' Sandee.
    Our oak tree, a present to Mrs. Jim from the landscaper at our former home of 16 years started having acorns before five years, I am thinking after three. It was a pin oak that has green leaves year round. That would 47 years early.
