At the Library

By Linda Witthoft | Nov 19, 2012

November … not one of my favorites, but the long evenings indoors tend to make good reading time. I often pick up a magazine (we have many at the library for check-out) or trivia books (yes, we have many of those also). I found some facts that may be of interest.

• Most people in the United States spend nearly 2,000 hours per year at work.

• Even during the thinking process, we only use 35 percent of our brain.

• More people walk to work in Alaska than any other state.

• Refrigerating rubber-bands helps them last longer.

• The White House has 132 rooms — 35 are bathrooms.

• Mick Jagger was a physical education teacher before becoming a Rolling Stone.

• Finally, Zane Grey, the famous Western genre author, was a dentist in Ohio.

Please drop into the library for more interesting facts or fiction!
