Did you know No 8


Good morning world, yes it is still in the AM here in Newie but not for long. Well it's Monday so it is did you know day.

There are nearly half a million sauna baths in Finland

To play Mickey Mouse at on of the Disney theme parks you must be under 5feet 6 inches tall

Acient Native American tribes used an ingenious method to measure the height of a tree or other tall objects. They would walk away from the tree, stopping every few steps to look back at th e tree by putting your head between your legs. When you are at a distance that you can just barely see the top of the tree make a mark on the ground. Measure the distance from the mark to the bottom of the tree and you will have suprisingly accurate measurement of the tree's height.

Houswarming parties have their origin in Scotland, where embers from the f ireplace of an old home were carried to start the f irst fire in a new home.
