Did you know?? (2)



In Maine, you could buy your own private island for only $40,000.



Michigan has more shoreline than any other state, except Alaska.

In Hawaii, you can mail a coconut anywhere in the world, without any kind of packaging.

Over 10 billion donuts are consumed in the US every year.

20% of all American meals are eaten in the car.




At 6 feet, 4 inches Abraham Lincoln was the tallest U.S. President.

 In 1862, pharmacist James Vernor was trying to create a new drink when he was called away to serve our country in the Civil War. When he returned, 4 years later, the drink he had stored in an oak case had a new delicious gingery flavor.

In Alaska, a jokester once burned over 100 tires in a dormant volcano to make it seem like it was coming alive on April Fools. 

In Arizona, mules are still used to bring mail in 2 places. 


South Dakota set the quickest temperature change when it got 49 degrees hotter in 2 minutes.

Did you know any of these?  
Which one did you like the best?

Love in Christ,

    1. Hahaa, it would be awesome to get one of your letters from a mule! ;) Though, it would take FOREVER! Yes, it was ginger ale. :) It was actually the first soda ever manufactured and it was from Detroit, MI! :D I'm so glad you liked them. ♥
