Random Thoughts

I thought I would share a few random thoughts I've had today:
  1. Who first thought to see if certain foods were edible - you know, stuff like eggs ("Gee, let's eat something from a chicken's bum!") and oysters ("Let's dig this shell out of the dirt and see if what's inside is edible?").
  2. How did they print books before automated printers?
  3. How do I accrue so much trash?
  4. What time is it in Uganda?
  5. When will I finish sewing SB's dresses from last week?
  6. How can I get more photography business?
  7. Who invented the greeting card? The earring? Styrofoam? Water coolers?
  8. How much wood could a wood chuck really chuck? And why can't a woodchuck chuck wood - it's called a woodchuck!
  9. How much longer can I convince my children that everyone takes an afternoon nap (especially since none of their friends nap anymore)?
  10. How do cats purr?
  11. Why do the people at school think every holiday is a reason to send candy home with my children? Are they in cahoots with the dentists?
  12. And lastly - how did I get so stinkin' blessed?!?!?

The first commercially-produced greeting card was a Christmas card invented in 1846 by British businessman Henry Cole who asked a printer to produce a printed Christmas greeting he could quickly send to friends

The earliest known earrings goes back, as far as the beginnings of the earth, in the Mesopotamia region.

Dow Chemical Company scientist, Ray McIntire invented foamed polystyrene aka Styrofoam. Ray McIntire said his invention of foamed polystyrene was accidental. His invention came as he was trying to find a flexible electrical insulator around the time of World War II.

In 1906 Halsey Willard Taylor and Luther Haws invented the first drinking water fountain. Later in 1911, Luther Haws patented the water faucet. The Halsey Taylor Company and Haws Sanitary Drinking Faucet & Co revolutionized the drinking water process. The main motive behind the invention was to provide purified water. Contaminated drinking water caused typhoid fever in Haws’ father who died as a result. Therefore Haws decided to invent something which would provide safer drinking water.

Just to answer a few of you questions. And...you are so Blessed because you chose to have faith in an unseen God! And you met me of course! ;) Love ya!
