    Your Fact of the day for June 7th...

    Most people know olives come in black and green, but what’s the difference? The color of the olive corresponds to the ripeness of the fruit when picked. That's it. Green olives are picked before ripening, and black olives are picked while ripe.

    Today is National Upsy Daisy Day, which is set aside to encourage you to face the day positively and to get up ‘gloriously, gratefully and gleefully’ each morning.

    This day in 1845: Andrew Jackson’s African Grey parrot was removed from his funeral at The Hermitage, Tennessee, for swearing so loud and long it disturbed the attendees.

    The last 3 Game 7 Stanley Cup Finals games have been won by the road team.

    Before that, it had happened only once in the previous 109 years.

    Your Fact of the day for today, June 13th...

    There was once a woman, Elvita Adams, who tried to commit suicide by jumping off the Empire State Building. Luckily, or unluckily, for her, depending on how you look at it, when she jumped from the 86th floor, a huge gust of wind blew her back into the building on the 85th floor and she survived, only breaking her hip and not ending her life.
