All pandas in the world are on loan from China, and when a baby Panda is born, by agreement, it is sent back to China to help expand the gene pool. The baby pandas are shipped back by FedEx.

Dolphins can communicate with one another over a telephone, and appear to know who they are talking. In one experiment carried in an aquarium in Hawaii, the mother and her two-year-old calf in another tank, connected by a special underwater audio link, recognized each other and “talked”.

Einstein once declared that his second greatest idea after the theory of relativity was to add an egg while cooking soup in order to produce a soft-boiled egg without having an extra pot to wash.

(Simply Said, Ovals 1 Dies)


In 1994 a 74 year old man unable to get a driver’s license drove 240 miles on a 1966 John Deere lawn mower to visit his brother who recently had a stroke. 
At a top speed of 5 mph, the journey took 6 weeks.

The average height of a human being stayed constant from the stone age all the way until the 1800’s, yet the average human today is four inches taller on average than 150 years ago.

I used 3 new dies.  Merry Christmas Die, Holly Dies and Large Ornament Die (and old old die - Borders 2 Dies)

"Merry Christmas" is one connected die (and a dot for the letter i of course)

The cool thing about the large ornament die is that there is a die cut top and bottom. You can make the ornament as wide as you like :) (you can use only the top, or the bottom as well)  The ring die is a way to hang your ornament.

There’s more gold in a ton of mobile phones than a ton of gold ore. It takes a ton of ore to get 1g of gold, but you can get the same amount from recycling 41 mobile phones.

Thanks so much for stopping by
Love ya!!
