Did you know our largest heron, the Great Blue Heron stands over a metre high, its habitants include shallow waters along the edges of lakes, ponds, and rivers or marshes. Being a colonie nester it fishes and hunts alone, patiently patrolling shallow, marshy shorelines, using its bill like needle-nosed pliers to capture small fish, amphibians, rodents, and large insects. In flight it is recognized by its slow, graceful, but powerful wing beat and its neck that doubles back to rest its head on its shoulders... yay non ski gabber
did YOU know? The tin cannister, or can, was invented in 1810 by Londoner Peter Durand. The year before, French confectioner Nicolas Appert had introduced the method of canning food by sealing the food tightly inside a glass jar and then heating it. He could not explain why the food stayed fresh but his bright idea won him the 12,000-francs prize that Napoleon offered in 1795 for preserving food. Durand supplied the Royal Navy with canned heat-preserved food while Appert would help Napoleon's army march on its stomach.
The phrase 'raining cats and dogs' originated in 17th Century England. During heavy downpours of rain, many of these poor animals unfortunately drowned and their bodies would be seen floating in the rain torrents that raced through the streets. The situation gave the appearance that it had literally rained 'cats and dogs' and led to the current expression.
More food is thrown out each day in the United States than is needed to feed its hungry . . . by McDonalds.
anathema: actually, the daddy long legs thing is a myth, it was proven wrong on discoverys myth busters: they can bite through your skin, and their bite is a bit more painful than a pin prick, but thats it...
