Always Learning

Have you ever gone a day without learning something new? I don’t think I have. My daily dose of “I didn’t know that!” might not be earth shattering, but it keeps my brain entertained. Take today for instance. I learned:

-that tahini is an antidepressant. Apparently there’s some element in tahini that is also found in Prozak and similar medications.

-that asperagus will grow in the Yukon IF it’s planted in a well-protected spot. Who knew?

-that by law, everyone in Vermont must take at least one bath a week.

-that Coca Cola was originally green.

-and that the first product to have a bar code was Wrigley’s gum.

What did you learn today?

  1. I tried to think of something new I learned yesterday and came up blank. I did, however, have lots of learning reinforced:
    – helping friends feels good
    – spending time in the bush with my son feels even better
    – overloading my pickup with firewood makes it handle funny
    – Superstore grocery shelves are pretty empty on Friday night
