Did You Know – 02/18/2019

  1. Diamonds are either rare, nor valuable. In one of the most successful advertising campaigns of all time, De Beers claimed that a man should be spending two months salary on a diamond engagement ring. Then they raised their prices, restricted their supply and created a costly illusion that generations of people still consider to be a mandatory part of the marriage process.

2.  In 1870 two million rabbits were killed every year in Australia, all descended from just 24 released in 1859.  In 1859, a man named Thomas Austin, a landowner in Winchelsea, Victoria imported 24 … Within a number of years, those 24 rabbits multiplied into millions. … By 1890, rabbits werespotted all the way in Western Australia.

YOU WILL NEVER LOOK AT THESE LOGOS THE SAME WAY, AGAIN

 


 

Do you see the arrow between the “E” and “x” (in white)?
               I had never noticed it before.



The 2nd and 3rd “T’s” are two people sharing (or fighting over) a
  tortilla and a bowl of salsa.


The world’s most famous bike race. The “R” in “Tour” is a cyclist.
The yellow circle is the front wheel of a bicycle, the “O” is the back wheel.



The arrow means Amazon has everything from A to Z

 
There is a dancing bear above the “ble”. Toblerone chocolate bars originated in Berne, Switzerland, whose symbol is the bear.


See the ” 31” embedded in the ” BR”? Thirty-one-derful flavors!

 



See the gorilla and lioness (in white) facing each other?
   

 

Just think, people get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to dream this up!

NINE (9) THINGS I KNOW ABOUT YOU     
1) You are reading this.     
2) You are human. 
3) You can’t say the letter ”P” without separating your lips. 
4) You just attempted to do it. 
6) You are laughing at yourself.     
7) You have a smile on your face and you skipped No. 5. 
8) You just checked to see if there is a No. 5. 
9) You laugh at this because you are a fun loving person & everyone does it too.

The Best Movie Seen in Years – ‘The Greatest Showman’

Did my Friday movie thing and went to see  ” The Greatest showman”  10 out of 10 for everything music, story, talent. It was just an amazingly beautiful story. It was the story of P.T. Barnum. For those who don’t know P.T. Barnum, he was a visionary who became a world-wide sensation.  American showman P. T. Barnum becomes the founder of the circus that will become the famous traveling Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Wikipedia for more of the history of the story)

It’s a movie that if you are pondering about what to do after Christmas dinner, take the whole family including Dad and go see this movie. You will love it.

Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Zendaya, michelle Williams. in fact all the cast was sensational. The songs all through the show gave me goose bumps and at time tears and so entertained. Would go see it again in fact I probably will. Go See it – just do it – Sensational movie  – feeling a bit down? go see it, you can’t possibly feel the blues after watching it. Ok enough.

Poem Friday – Take the time

Take the time

Author: Lesley Voth

While on my run the other day
I passed a school Bus stop full of kids, not one at play

I know it was morning not a time for being alert and bright
But those kids looked bored, sad, didnt look right

With ear buds locked in, listening to different soundings
Not aware of who is beside them and all their surroundings

Not communicating, not laughing and playing games
So engrossed in what they are hearing, songs of famous names

Do they ever look into the eyes of that person they are sitting beside
Do they sit on that bus, never even seeing what is passing outside

Do they see that person is maybe sad or shedding a tear
Do they see that they maybe hurting, living in fear

Do they see that one of them may be very lonely
Do they see that they would like a conversation, if only

They won’t interrupt you for fear they may be rude
They probably consider you really don’t care, or be in the mood

You know I don’t think that many of them are aware
That when they put those ear buds in, at the ground they stare

I would like to say, and I do because I love fun, people and I care
Maybe some of these tragedies at schools may not happen, would be rare

If we all took the time to observe those around us
We may save a life, make someone laugh, make their day a plus

Take out those ear buds in company of those around you, that would be fine
Be aware, of their feelings, look at them, speak to them, and take the time
