Microwaves! Who Knew?!?

Today for Who Knew Wednesday we talked about things you never knew your microwave could do.

Here is the link to the article we found: http://list25.com/25-things-you-never-knew-your-microwave-could-do/1/

Some of our favorites were removing a postage stamp, making scrambled eggs and re-hydrating stale bread.

Our word of the day was capricious which means to be unpredictable, fickle, impulsive or changeable.

Here’s a link: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/capricious

We hope you have a grand Who Knew Wednesday and can put this new information to use in your own life!

Experience Week

The website DaysOfTheYear.com revealed that this is EXPERIENCE WEEK.

This is a week where a company called Into the Blue encourages people to give their friends and family an ‘experience’ like nothing they’ve ever done before.  Examples would be zorbing, a word that, quite honestly, I had no idea existed until last week. Zorbing is getting into a plastic bubble-type ball on water or down a hill, and, well…see for yourself by searching ZORBING on YouTube.

Our word of the day was ENJOIN – it means to instruct or urge (someone) to do something!

Thanks for listening!

-Joe
