Fun Fact: Washing berries and tomatoes as soon as you get home from the market actually encourages them to spoil faster, so wait until just before you are ready to eat them before washing, and do so gently to avoid bruising them.
Well, the only fruit I brought home today didn't require cleaning but it was yummy to eat - I brought home a small bunch of bananas :-) They are one of my favorites and my boys too :-)
Fun Fact: Lettuce contains a mild opiate-like substance called lactucarium. Ancient Romans and Egyptians took advantage and ate lettuce at the end of their meals to promote sleep.
I think I'll try Romaine first - it seems to be the tamest of the new-to-me ones to try. I honestly do prefer Iceburg - it just tastes better to me especially with some shredded carrots, thin sliced cucumbers, a little bit of shredded cheese and my favorite dressing of Raspberry Vinaigrette. I had a boyfriend in high school that would use red wine vinegar and salt (can't remember what type, maybe it was garlic?) to make his own dressing - it was pretty good too. Maybe I should look up that mix...
Fun Fact: A blue whale's heart is the size of a small car. Its main blood vessel (the aorta) is so large that a human could crawl through it.
I learned how to do this when I earned my EMT-B License back in 2002. You never forget how to do it.

Fun fact: ZZ Top, as famous for their gigantic beards as their mega-hit "Legs," has a band member with the surname Beard – and he's the only one who doesn't have a beard.
Once again this was a good stretch to do following 3 straight hours of massage again today. I'm glad I gave this track a try, it was good timing for sure! :-)
Fun fact: Singer Norah Jones, whose songbook includes "Toes," was born Geethali Norah Jones Shankar. She officially changed her first name to Norah when she was 16.

Fun fact: Rod Stewart, the musician who gave the world the song "Hot Legs," became attracted to politics in his late teens and was arrested three times at sit-ins at Trafalgar Square and Whitehall in central London.
Did this one at the very end of my day yesterday to stretch my tired legs out after a long day - pretty much 4 straight hours of massaging clients. Yeah, my legs needed a good stretch after that! Whew!
