Good morning, also a wet morning so I wasn't able to go with Leo to wait for his driver. Here are some facts.........

The average human brain has about 100 billion nerve cells

Nerve impulses to and from the brain travel at 170 miles per hour

It took Michelangelo 17 months to sculpture the statue of David in 1504.

Once it was illegal for women in Florida to parachute on Sundays unless married.

The wind carries about 100 million tons of sand around the earth each year.

If Florida still had that crazy law, I wouldn't have been allowed to parachute today--not that I've ever had any wish to do so.

Odd law in Florida but I guess they had their reasons.
Know about that dust, it even come across to us at times.

Nancy Chan said...

Amazing facts concerning the brain and wind carrying sand around the world. Some places still have weird laws.

When I have a headache, I swear I can feel every single one of those 100 billion nerve cells in my brain.

I wonder if that Florida law involved women crashing their fiancee's bachelor parties...

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

Margaret.........I know odd indeed

Nancy........I agree

Karen.......I get that

Chris........I wonder


  Well yesterday I started a post for word of the week but then my sister Sandy turned up and I forgot about it not the end of the world. ...
