Did you know...

...that elephants in South Africa are being trained to track poachers? They have an incredible sense of smell and can track a person even through two feet of running water! Sounds like poetic justice to me.

...that "sleep tight" is a reference to the ropes that supported mattresses back in the olden days?

...that only two dozen people in Russia accounted for 70% of Russia's Gross Domestic Product?

...that my blogpal sent me a note? Thanks for thinking of me. ;>

Nope, can't say I knew those things :-)

If you send me your home addy, I'll send you a Grace Christmas card :-). Yes, all the way to Russia.
