Interesting about whales...
Whales, the largest species also have the loudest calls than any other animal on Earth. To be precise, the sperm whale is the animal with the loudest call in the world. It makes a series of clicking noises that can reach as high as 230 decibels, making it the loudest animal in the world. The click lasts for only 15 to 30 milliseconds and can stay audible to a sperm whale as much as 10 miles away. Sperm whales are so loud that their clicks are capable of killing a human within their vicinity. At around 150 decibels your eardrums will burst, and the threshold for death is estimated to be in the range of 180 to 200 decibels.
The blue whale, the largest animal on earth, at up to 98 ft in length and with a maximum recorded weight of 190 short tons. It can produce loud whistling calls that reach up to 188 db. These calls can travel up to 500 miles underwater. But the loudest is the sperm whale. It makes a series of clicking noises that can reach as high as 230 db making it the loudest animal in the world.

How does this sound? Pepperoni Pizza Bake:
1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury Grands Homestyle refrigerated biscuits
1 can (8 oz) pizza sauce
2 cups finely shredded mozzarella cheese
16 slices pepperoni
1. Cut each biscuit into 8 pieces, toss with pizza sauce and 1 cup of the cheese
2. Spread biscuit mixture in an 9x13 inch baking dish. Top
with pepperoni and remaining cheese.
3. Bake at 375º for 22-28 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.
I would say you could also add pizza toppings that you like most. Toss it all together.
Historically this date.....
OMG! Click on the name and read. Really interesting!
Too many sick sick leaders in this world who feel it is/was their right to "adjust" populations.
1966 – A fire at a building in New York, New York kills 12 firefighters, the New York City Fire Department's deadliest day until the September 11, 2001 attacks.
1989 – 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake (7.1 on the Richter scale) hits the San Francisco Bay Area and causes 57 deaths directly (and 6 indirectly).
While traveling to my sister Marion's, in Lake Tahoe, my son Brian and I are listening to the World Series ... the earthquake struck, unbeknownst to us, and the radio went off. We thought it was because of a bad reception area. Arrived at my sis's and she was jumping up and down on the deck shouting, "The Bay Bridge has fallen down, the Bay Bridge has fallen down!" Gosh, we both wondered what in the world ... had she been smokin' her socks????? Lordy. So, after that, we sat spellbound in front of the TV for hours watching all the mess in San Francisco unfold. My nephew Andy at Candlestick Park on the upper deck said the whole deck was swinging back and forth. Fortunately it didn't fall. Wow.
