I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
Groucho Marx

The best way to pay for a lovely moment is to enjoy it.

Don’t wait around for other people to be happy for you. Any happiness you get you’ve got to make yourself.
Alice Walker

Who would have thunk it?
Useless facts until you need useless facts.

Crocodiles can feel their prey swimming. Although built like tanks, they are sensitive regarding their eating habits. Their sense of touch is among the most acute in the animal world. Certain spots on their bodies are scientifically known as ISO’s [integumentary sensor organs]. These ISO’s allow for the crocodile to sense the movement of water and where the prey is – as in ‘actually is!’ That certainly explains the Exocet missile theory!

If you have EVER wondered how long a ladder would have to be to reach the moon … l mean you might have somewhere, right? Well, l could say a long one, or the moon is, give or take, around 238,000 miles away and upwards instead of downwards. You would need to purchase over 96,000 four-metre ladders. I think. What do you think?

The “sixth sick sheikh’s sixth sheep’s sick” is believed to be the toughest tongue twister in the English language, which beats she sells sea shells by the seashore and also silly Sally swiftly shooed seven silly sheep—shilly-shallied south. These sheep shouldn’t sleep in a shack; Sheep should sleep in a shed. However, l don’t know, looking at it like that. That aside, the fact that she sells sea shells is possibly actual. It is likely to be based on Mary Anning 1799 – 1847, who was not just a sea shell seller but a fossilised sea shell seller.

Forget fingerprints. Think of tongue prints as everyone’s is different to the next person’s.

Almonds are a member of the peach family.

I know, right!
Who would have thunk it?

Wishing all you great folks a fabulous day!

  1. That is some tongue twister, Rory! When I was a child, I wanted to kidnap the moon and my mom told me I was selfish and the moon was to be shared for everyone to see. Funny, how I remember such silly things from my past.
