In July, the Earth is at its
aphelion-the furthest point
in its orbit from the sun.

High atop Fort Mountain in
Chatsworth, Georgia, there's
a mysterious 855-foot zigzagging rock wall that no
one can explain. Visitors to
the Fort Mountain State Park
should also explore the stone
fire tower built by the CCC.

Be sure to water outdoor
potted plants every day
in the hot summer. Even
skipping one day can set
them back and keep them
from looking their best.

If you leave your hoe
standing upright in the
garden at the end of the day,
you will not sleep well that
night.

The word "swims" upside
down is still "swims".

Thunder and lightning in the
summer show the point from
which the breeze will blow.

If you have slugs on your
hostas, give them a boozy
surprise. Leave a jar lid full
of beer nearby and the slugs
will visit for a drink and
drown.

Is it true that cannibals don't
eat clowns because they
taste funny?
The problem with trouble
shooting is that trouble
shoots back.

Anadromes are words
that make a completely
different word when spelled
backwards. For example:
desserts, diaper, warts, trap,
stop.
The average office worker
in the United States goes
through roughly 500
disposable cups annually.
