Random Fun Facts for a Friday...and a Random Giveaway!

Today work started, like most days, with a post on facebook. It was a Random Fun Fact I'd found on my eNewsletter from BabyCenter.com: Did you know that butterflies have about 1,200 eyes? But they're clustered together, so they kind of look like one big eye. Just a little randomness for a Friday. Well, right away three or four friends commented with their own fun facts and that's when the lightbulb went off. How about a Random Fun Fact for Friday Random Giveaway?! Yeah, it's a long title, but it just came to me!

I'm sure you have some  Random Fun Fact stored in that incredible brain of yours. Here's you chance to let it out to shine, baby! Share your Random Fun Fact as a comment on this blog post and you could win. What's the prize? We'll draw a few winners at random and send them, well, a random prize. Could be a T-Shirt, could be a CD...could be TICKETS to Faith and Family Night with the Peoria Chiefs, Lincoln Brewster, and this year's Opening Act winner. I'm just saying...it COULD be. But, you'll never know until you win. And, you'll never win until you comment on this post with your favorite Random Fun Fact. Make sure you include an email address in your comment so I can contact you if you win.

We'll post the Radom Winners Monday morning right here on the blog. Happy Weekend!

When glass breaks, the cracks travel faster than 3,000 miles per hour. In order to capture then entire event, the photographer must have a camera that shoots and a millionth per second!

Oh! And I love butterflies. LOVE them. So I had to reply to this. :D

The Bloomington Public library lets you check out up to 20 multi media items including movies, music, and video games which can only be kept for a week. I dont believe there is a limit on books, or if there is, it is a huge amount! The books can be kept for up to 3 weeks. You can use their library to access the internet from as young as kids age 5 up to adults for 90 minutes a day. Adults can actually check out a laptop so they can be closer to their children.
You can use this library even if you do not live in Bloomington, you just have to have a current card from your local library.
A great way to spend summer days that are tooo hot, cold, or rainy to be outside!!!
