The wind in the west suits
everyone best.

A varied set of petroglyphs
on a boulder called "The
Stone of Witness," is
identified as being carved
with eight different preColumbian languages.
Located in a park near town
hall in Manchester, KY, the
stone continues to puzzle
scholars as to its origin.

You won't need sugar for
your tea if you drink some of
the lighter flavored varieties
such as jasmine, Formosa or
Oolong. They are naturally
sweet.

March is the time to put up
nesting boxes, clean up dead
limbs and sharpen tools.

If you walk through a
graveyard, whistle as you go.

It's bad luck to point at a
rainbow.
If green is the strongest
color in a rainbow, rain will
continue. If red, then there
will be wind and rain. If blue,
the air will be clear.
Have your hair or beard cut
on a new moon and it will
grow out better.

ˆ FACTOIDS
You are more likely to die
from a falling coconut than
from a shark attack.
A housefly hums in the
middle octave key of F.

Fresh lemon juice will remove
onion scent from hands. Or,
cut up celery after cutting up
an onion for the same effect.

Punch a hole in any plant
id tags from plants you
purchase and slide them onto
a key ring. Then you will be
able to find the information
if you have any questions
about what you've planted.
To keep moles out of your
garden, sink empty bottles
into the ground around the
molehills, leaving a couple of
inches of the necks showing.
When the wind blows, it will
make a hollow sound and
annoy the moles.

Take the high road. There's
less traffic.
Why do we drive on
parkways, but park in
driveways?
Why do fat chance and
slim chance mean the same
thing?
When does it stop being
partly sunny and start being
partly cloudy?
Why do people say heads
up when they want you to
duck?
