I just went up to the kitchen to unplug it! I think I need to leave a note to get people to unplug the toaster after use. I'm the only one who does it, and I don't always remember to do it. That savings could really add up!

I do not like the toaster out on the kitchen counter so after it cools I unplug it and put it away.

I keep my toaster unplugged unless I'm using it, for that reason!

Jesus take my life and lead me on.

Have fun and no regrets. Make memories and love without fear. Enjoy life because in the end, the journey is the destination.

emoticon Wow! I had no idea! And we use the toaster almost every day! I'm going to try to remember to unplug it when it's not in use, at least that will prevent energy drain.

The universally popular Hershey bar was used overseas during World War II as currency.

Military chocolate has been a part of standard United States military ration since the original Ration D or D ration bar of 1937. Today, military chocolate is issued to troops as part of basic field rations and sundry packs. Chocolate rations served two purposes: as a morale boost, and as a high-energy, pocket-sized emergency ration. Military chocolate rations are often made in special lots to military specifications for weight, size, and endurance. The majority of chocolate issued to military personnel is produced by the Hershey Company.

•Mosquitoes are attracted to the color blue twice as much as any other color.

Mosquitoes, like other insects, see in the blue, ultraviolet spectrum. So they're attracted to blue lights and clothing, but not to reds and yellows. That's why bug zappers have blue lights "

Even though it is never featured on any best-selling list, the Bible still is the world’s best selling book.


The Bible (from Koine Greek τὰ βιβλία, tà biblía, "the books") is a collection of texts sacred in Judaism and Christianity. There is no single "Bible" and many Bibles with varying contents exist.[1] Various religious traditions have produced different recensions with different selections of texts. These do largely overlap however, creating an important common core.

With estimated total sales of over 5 billion copies, the Bible is widely considered to be the best selling book of all time,[2][3][4] has estimated annual sales of 100 million copies,[5][6] and has been a major influence on literature and history, especially in the West where it was the first mass-printed book. The Gutenberg Bible was the first Bible printed using movable type.

I know there are some nuts dogs cannot have, but I forget which ones! At any rate, the only nut product our dog gets is peanut butter and I know that's ok. She gets in some of her treat biscuits and she gets about a quarter tsp. a day to lick off her "tire". It's the best way we have of getting out of the house without her...just a little smear on a little tire and it gives us enough time to flee emoticon

Dogs and cats are allergic to certain kinds of nuts.




Nuts Dangers to Dogs

Toxic Poisoning and Upset Stomach a Common Symptom

Bowl of nuts
Dog owners, beware of rewarding your four-legged companion with a variety of salty treats in the form of nuts.

Nuts are one more "DO NOT EAT" item to add to Fido's list of toxic or harmful substances. Certain types of nuts can cause toxic poisonings, an upset stomach or an obstruction in your dog's gastrointestinal tract which can lead to life-saving surgery and unexpected veterinary expenses.


Keep your pet safe and make sure the nuts listed below are out of your dog's reach.

Almonds

Almonds
Dogs love the taste of almonds, particularly the flavored variety (jalapeno, barbecued, smoked, vanilla, cinnamon, etc.).

While not toxic, almonds are not easily digested can give your dog an upset stomach and create gastric intestinal distress.


Black Walnuts

Black walnuts
Black walnuts contains a toxin called juglone which can cause a vascular disease in horses known as laminitis, but doesn't appear to cause problems in dogs. Eating black walnuts can cause gastric intestinal upset or an obstruction.



In addition, moldy black walnuts can contain tremorgenic mycotoxins which can cause seizures or neurological symptoms.


English Walnuts

English walnuts
English walnuts can cause gastric intestinal upset (tummy ache) or even an obstruction in your dog's body. Like black and Japanese walnuts, moldy English walnuts can contain tremorgenic mycotoxins (toxic chemical products produced by fungi) which can cause seizures or neurological symptoms.


Hickory Nuts

Hickory nuts
Hickory nuts also contain the toxin juglone that can cause laminitis in horses. Eating hickory nuts can cause the same problems associated with black walnuts: gastric intestinal upset or an intestinal obstruction. Like walnuts, moldy hickory nuts can contain tremorgenic mycotoxins which can cause seizures or neurological symptoms.


Japanese Walnuts

Japanese walnut
Japanese walnuts contain no toxicity; however, they can cause gastric intestinal upset or even an obstruction.

Like English walnuts, moldy Japanese walnuts can contain tremorgenic mycotoxins which can cause seizures or neurological symptoms.


Macadamia Nuts

Macadamia nuts
Macadamia nuts are very rich in fat which can give your dog a major upset stomach and may cause pancreatitis.

In addition, these nuts are reported to contain an unknown toxic principle that may result in neurological symptoms.


Pecans

Pecans
Pecans also contain the toxin juglone that can cause laminitis in horses. Feeding dogs pecans can cause gastric intestinal upset or an obstruction.

Like walnuts, moldy pecans can contain tremorgenic mycotoxins which can cause seizures or neurological symptoms.


Pistachio Nuts

Pistachios are also rich in fat and can cause your dog to develop an upset stomach. In addition, repetitive eating of pistachios can cause pancreatitis in your dog.


Cats are also allergic to peanuts.

The 'black box' that houses an airplanes voice recorder is actually orange so it can be more easily detected amid the debris of a plane crash

I did know that! There were a lot of "tonics" folks took way back when that contain ingredients now classified as narcotics.
