Sky/Geese ~ Mike ~ Dude ~ Stoned Nudists ~ Toothbrush History ~ Poached Seafood Italiano ~ Bruiser ~ Lee Majors ~ Sunset 

Good 51º high cloudy morning. "Chance" of showers today and tonight.
It was such a clear and sunny day all day yesterday. 

No clouds and we warmed to 80º. The geese were sittin' on top of the barn for awhile...

Yesterday Mike came over and sharpened the blades on the riding lawnmower, mowed, and weed-eated along the creek.... 

And Dude kept and eye on him!
Still a lot more to do before Dave comes to brush-hog my pastures.
Picture of the Day.... Stoned Nudists On The Beach! 

Here is some interesting information about toothbrushes I bet you didn't know....

The toothbrush as we know it today was not invented until 1938. However, early forms of the toothbrush have been in existence since 3000 BC. Ancient civilizations used a "chew stick," which was a thin twig with a frayed end. These 'chew sticks' were rubbed against the teeth.

The bristle toothbrush, similar to the type used today, was not invented until 1498 in China. The bristles were actually the stiff, coarse hairs taken from the back of a hog's neck and attached to handles made of bone or bamboo.

Boar bristles were used until 1938, when nylon bristles were introduced by Dupont de Nemours. The first nylon toothbrush was called Doctor West's Miracle Toothbrush. Later, Americans were influenced by the disciplined hygiene habits of soldiers from World War II. They became increasingly concerned with the practice of good oral hygiene and quickly adopted the nylon toothbrush.
And.... the most popular color for toothbrushes is blue.

Later I watched a Hallmark movie, while Bruiser napped on my lap....

"Eat Play Love" was the name of the movie. I was blown away when Lee Majors was in it. Almost didn't recognize him! He played Dr. Monroe, a veterinarian.

He was a favorite as Heath Barkley in Big Valley... and was married to Farrah Fawcett from 1973-1982

The sunset sky was beautiful....

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.

Each year on May 8, millions of people across the country celebrate National Have a Coke Day.  Coca-Cola, often referred to as Coke, is a carbonated soft drink that is produced by The Coca-Cola Company. Coke is a registered trademark of the Coca-Cola Company in the United States since March 27, 1944.  As of 2013, Coke products can be found in over 200 countries around the world as consumers down more than 1.8 million company beverage servings each day.

In the late 19th century, John Pemberton invented Coca-Cola, at Pemberton’s Eagle Drug and Chemical House in Columbus, Georgia, intending it as a patent medicine. It was then bought out by businessman Asa Griggs Candler. Candler’s marketing tactics led Coke to its dominance of the world soft-drink market throughout the 20th century.
1891 – The first bottling of Coco-Cola occurred at the Biedenharn Candy Company in Vicksburg, Mississippi.
1894 – The first outdoor wall advertisement that promoted the Coca-Cola drink was painted in Cartersville, Georgia
1914 – The longest running commercial Coca-Cola soda fountain anywhere was Atlanta’s Fleeman’s Pharmacy. The pharmacy closed its doors in 1995 after 81 years.
1944 – July 12, the one-billionth gallon of Coca-Cola syrup was manufactured by the Coca-Cola Company.
1955 – Cans of Coke first appeared.
