  • Mothers Day was started by a West Virginia woman, Anna Jarvis, in 1907.  In 1914 President Woodrow Wilson made it official.   ( remember to love on your mommy !!)
  • In July 1861, over 30 feet of water fell on the town of Cerrapunji, India  ( no I don’t know how to pronounce that name…) in 30 days……….  ( and we think Seattle has it bad…)
  • Pollen never deteriorates.  It is one of the few naturally secreted substances that lasts indefinitely.  ( I am sure that is SOOO encouraging to allergy sufferers everywhere…)
