Sunset at the North Pole



This is the sunset at the North Pole with the moon at its closest point. This is a scene you will probably never get to see in person, so take a moment and enjoy .And, you also see the sun below the moon.
Quote by~ Pearl Bailey
“People see God every day, they just don't recognize him.”

Facts
Actor Tommy Lee Jones and vice-president Al Gore were freshman roommates at Harvard. Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone, never phoned his wife or his mother. They were both deaf.
All of the officers in the Confederate army were given copies of Les Miserables, by Victor Hugo, to carry with them at all times. Robert E. Lee, among others, believed that the book symbolized their cause. Both revolts were defeated. Ancient drinkers warded off the devil by clinking their cups. Ancient Egyptians shaved off their eyebrows to mourn the deaths of their cats.

Tips
An easy way to tidy up your slipcover when you put it on is to use a wooden spoon or spatula to push any loose fabric into the cracks at the edges of the cushions.
If you plan to put a slipcover on a leather sofa or arm chair, covering the seat in foam batting first will help the slipcover stay in place without slipping on the slippery leather surface.
Remember that if you want to cover dark colored upholstery, you may need to put a white sheet over your furniture before fitting the slipcover, to ensure the old color or pattern doesn’t show through.
