It is the only animal with 4 forwardfacing knees.
A hummingbird weighs less than a
penny.
Reed Hastings was inspired to start
Netflix after racking up a $40 fine on

The thicker the apple skin
the higher the snow.

Leo the Enlightened, a
20-foot troll by Danish
sculptor Thomas Danbo,
lounges around in the Smoky
Mountains of Sevier County,
Tennessee. The troll, perched
on a hillside at Blackberry
Mountain Resort, was built
to encourage guests to go
outside and explore. 35.719⁰

CHERRY NUT SALAD
Ingredients:

Run over dry leaves with
your mower before placing
them in the compost pile.
They'll decompose faster.

Every time you clean
something, you just make
something else dirty.

ˆ KITCHEN

Directions:

After stewing a chicken for
diced meat, let it cool in
broth before cutting. It will
have twice the flavor.

Mix well
and chill.

If robins are seen near a
house in the fall, the winter
will be cold and snowy.
Leave the breastbone of
a goose or turkey on the
windowsill to dry.
If the bone turns chalky
white, you'll be snug and
warm at night.
If the bone turns black or
blue winter will go hard on
you.

For crispier fried potatoes,
slice potatoes into cold water
and leave at least an hour.

1 can cherry pie filling
1 can sweetened condensed
milk
1 can crushed, drained
pineapple
1 c. chopped walnuts
1 carton whipped topping

If you haven't already done
so, clean out your bird
nesting boxes for the winter.
While cats are the number
one cause of death for
songbirds in the U.S., window
strikes are a close second.
Prevent these by leaving
screens in or stretching
netting across hooks screwed
around the windows.

Life isn't all beer and skittles.
Everything passes,
everything perishes,
everything palls.
The only free cheese is
usually in a mousetrap.
Even a blind squirrel finds an
acorn sometimes.
