    And most of that dead skin came off my feets because I am waaaay overdue for a pedi. That ends today as I finally have an appointment! I am also having my hair grimmed and styled this morning. This now more than year-long grow out process is getting old. srsly.

    Have yourself a funtabulous weelend, Sandee!! :))

    And on that note about dust, from the observations of a person who cleans other people's houses, those who do not have any pets at all have much less dust. So it's not just dead skin from people, which doesn't seem to cause as much of a problem if you stay on top of it. It's the animal dander that makes a place really dusty!

    Those are some pretty interesting facts for sure. I am surprised at the Oak tree one. So all my oak trees are old. Those were good ones Sandee, Sandee, you and Zane have a great day and week end.

    We have a lot of Oak trees on our 10 acres- we got tons of acorns this year- but this is what I read when googling Oak trees:
    β€’Fruit of the oak is called acorn. Production of acorns starts at the age of 20 to 50 years.
    β€’After about 20 years, these trees start producing acorns. Some trees may even take up to 50 years to produce the first lot. Yearly production of acorns for a mature tree may touch around 2,200 acorns per year
    β€’ Oak trees can live up to 200 years or more, and mature trees have the capacity of absorbing more than 50 gallons of water in one day.
    and if you want even more info read on:

    I had no idea about every single one of these! I had no idea that it's even possible that a sound – like the duck's quack – doesn't echo! Thank you so much for sharing these. I just had to share them with my hubby right away πŸ˜‰
    Have an amazing weekend! Lots of hugs to you!

    I always like your lists of 'amazing facts,' Sandee.
    Our oak tree, a present to Mrs. Jim from the landscaper at our former home of 16 years started having acorns before five years, I am thinking after three. It was a pin oak that has green leaves year round. That would 47 years early.

    Now am thinking of having an apple instead of coffee just so I can lessen my sugar intake πŸ™‚ sometimes I put on much sugar and creamer on my coffee.
