  • Abraham Lincoln's dog was named Fido and as the first presidential dog to ever be photographed, he helped popularize the name to the point of clichΓ©.

  • The earliest known record of the ice cream sandwich dates back to 1900 when it was sold for a penny on the streets of the Bowery neighborhood in New York City. It was made of vanilla ice cream placed in-between two graham crackers. The vendor was reportedly so busy making the sandwiches that he made his customers pay exactly one penny because he didn’t have time to give their change.

  • While many people may only associate the name “Kermit” with this particular amphibious Muppet, this wasn’t always the case. It was actually a fairly common name at one point and coincidentally, Jim Henson came across quite a few people named Kermit before finally deciding that would be the name of his most famous creation. Henson himself admits that although he did have a childhood acquaintance named Kermit Scott, he was not whom the frog was named after. Another common belief is that Kermit the Frog was named after famed puppet creator, Kermit Love. While it’s true that Kermit Love does maintain strong association with the Muppets, his working relationship with Henson wasn’t until after Kermit’s creation. Combine that with the fact that he consistently denied any association to the character’s naming and you have a pretty strong case against Love.

  • The original Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte didn't contain any pumpkin. The drink got its name from all the spices that go in a pumpkin pie, but it didn't contain any actual pumpkin. Then, in 2015, Starbucks tweaked the recipe to include it. People drink the most Pumpkin Spice Lattes on Halloween.

  • Not All Primates Are Monkeys.....The term "monkey" is sometimes used as a catch-all for every animal in the primate family, but the truth is that monkeys live on completely different branches of the evolutionary tree from both apes (i.e., chimpanzees, gorillas, and humans) and prosimians (i.e., lemurs, tarsiers, and lorises). One big difference between monkeys and other primates is in the tail: Most monkeys have tails, while apes and other primates do not. Apes also tend to be larger than monkeys and, thanks to their larger brains, more intelligent.

  • Ernie may be Bert's best friend on the show, but there is someone who is much closer to the one-eye browed puppet. Bert has an identical twin brother named Bart. He made a brief appearance on an episode of "Sesame Street" in 1974.

  • Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs (FREE PATTERNS)

  • Turn Dollar Tree Pasta Into Snowflake Christmas Ornaments
  • Facts about snowflakes.....Snow isn't just made up of snowflakes. Snow is also made of sleet, which is created when snowflakes pass through the atmosphere and melt a little by the time they hit the ground. Each snowflake is not unique. It's a myth. Identical snowflakes have been found before and each snowflake has six sides because the molecules that make them up are hexagon-shaped. Snowflakes are not at all white. They are actually translucent, where light is reflected rather than passed through. Because of the snowflake's tiny surface, the light scatters in so many directions that it can't absorb or reflect consistently, and the color comes back as white.

  • Mason Jar Wall Sconces
  • Facts about mason jars.....Mason jars didnt make the inventor wealthy even though Mason jars can be purchased at just about any store these days and have a multitude of uses, their creator, John L. Mason, didn't make any money off of them. He patented his invention in 1858 (at the age of just 26!), but the patent expired in 1879. Since most competitor brands didn't start making Mason jars until after 1879, he didn't see any of the profit.

  • I Do.....
  • Facts about little cereal boxes.....After a 14-year absence from grocery store shelves, Kellogg Corp. said Wednesday that it is bringing back “bowl-in-the-box” packaging for its individual-sized cereal containers. Kellogg said it will use a new packaging method for its single servings of cereal products. It will again feature the little boxes with perforations that let cereal eaters pour milk right into the box and eat from the package. The new boxes will also have a new easier-to-open side tab for those who prefer to pour their cereal into a bowl.

  • Dollar Tree Picture Frame Design Fail :)
  • Facts about marrying your first cousin.....Marrying your first cousin carries some risk. But the odds of healthy offspring dramatically improve with each new distance of relation. Second cousins share only 6.25 percent of their genes and third cousins share just over 3 percent.

  • Gosh I Am That 'certain age' Then :)
  • Facts about the L’eggs pantyhose container.....Like the Quaker Oats can and actual egg cartons, the L’eggs containers proved to be an enduring presence in the household. Some people used them as holiday decorations, party favors, or planters; Hanes had tremendous marketing success tweaking them in different colors for holiday promotions. They even released a book offering dozens of craft ideas. It sold 23,000 copies in its first month of release. While the original L’eggs package reappears periodically for anniversaries and promotional duties, the design has largely been rendered obsolete by waste concerns.

  • Cookie Monster Ice Cream
  • Facts about Cookie Monster.....Cookie's real name is Sid. Cookie Monster's dad appeared in a “Monsterpiece Theater” sketch promoting energy conservation, water conservation and environmentalism. The original incarnation of Cookie Monster was created by Jim Henson for a General Foods commercial.

  • Terracotta Pot Ladies
  • Facts about terracotta pots.....Terracotta's porous nature allows for air and water to move through the walls, preventing soil disease and root rot. Terracotta pots can be used for indoor plants and outdoor container gardening. Terracotta containers are great for Cacti, Succulents, and other plants that prefer drier soil. 

  • How To Make A Dollar Tree Metal Fruit Basket Stand
  • Facts about fruit.....Apples, peaches and raspberries are all members of the rose family. Pumpkins and avocados are fruits not a vegetable. Apples float in water because they are 25% air. A half-cup of figs has as much calcium as a half-cup of milk. Green fruits help make your bones and teeth strong. Not all oranges are in fact orange.

  • Unicorn Poncho And Crochet Socks Crochet Patterns
  • Facts about Unicorns.....A unicorn is a mythical creature similar to a horse with a single horn. The word unicorn means “one-horn”. Unicorns are typically described white, but actually, they can be of any color! Unicorns do not have wings. When a unicorn has wings, they are called Pegasi.
