    From Noel Whittaker's latest newsletter.

    Studies show that if a cat falls off the seventh floor of a building it has about thirty percent less chance of surviving than a cat that falls off the twentieth floor. It supposedly takes about eight floors for the cat to realize what is occurring, relax and correct itself.

    The saying "it's so cold out there it could freeze the balls off a brass monkey" came from when they had old cannons like ones used in the Civil War. The cannonballs were stacked in a pyramid formation, on a triangular frame called a brass monkey. When it got extremely cold outside the triangle would contract and the balls would fall off.

    101 Dalmatians and Peter Pan (Wendy) are the only two Disney cartoon features with both parents that are present and don't die throughout the movie.

    ‘Stewardesses’ is the longest word that is typed with only the left hand.

    The Baby Ruth candy bar was actually named after Grover Cleveland's baby daughter, Ruth.

    A whale's ***** is called a dork.

    Armadillos have four babies at a time and they are always all the same s ex.
