"The most beautiful adventures are not those we go to seek."

Facts
$25 million is spent each year on lap dances in Las Vegas.
In the U.S., more than 10% of lottery prizes go unclaimed!

Some species of fish have voices!
Frogs cannot swallow without blinking.

Tip
Spray a little furniture polish on the bottom of your brooms bristles.
