16 Fun Food Facts

This list is from BuzzFeed. I would like to say it has 16 fantastic items, but I have serious doubts about no.16, which claims leftovers taste better. While this is true for some things, it is not true for many more foods. At least that has been my experience.

Anyway, enjoy the first 15 facts HERE.

Excellent Site For Free eBooks – PDF Drive

From the PDF Drive.net site –

PDF Drive is your search engine for PDF files. As of today we have 48,168,883 eBooks for you to download for free. No annoying ads, no download limits, enjoy it and don’t forget to bookmark and share the love.

My 2 cents –

I found this site quite useful when recently looking for an ebook on Microsoft Access. No need to sign up for anything, no need to give them an email address, just download any ebooks you like. I found 3 titles that fit my Access needs. I was able to download 2 of the 3, the third one was no longer available. I noticed that many of the “For Dummies” ebooks are available. Be aware that when you click on the “Download PDF” button and a progress bar appears, that the PDF is not yet being downloaded. You must wait for the blue progress bar to finish and the click the green “Go To PDF” button.

Go to PDF Drive.

This includes taking off the heads, inspecting inside the engine thoroughly making sure there are no irregularities, and checking to make sure that oil is being applied in key areas they way it was engineered to do so.

New Record – Photo Taken Most Distant From Earth

According to TheVerge –

The previous record holder for the farthest picture was NASA’s Voyager 1. The probe, which flew by Jupiter and Saturn before heading out to interstellar space, captured a distant picture of Earth on February 14th, 1990, when Voyager 1 was 3.75 billion miles away. Known as the “Pale Blue Dot,” it was the last picture Voyager 1 took before its cameras were turned off shortly afterward.

Voyager 1’s record remained unbroken for 27 years until December 5th, 2017, when New Horizons snapped its photo of the cluster at a distance of 3.79 billion miles from Earth. Then, the spacecraft broke its own record again two hours later, when it took photos of two objects in the Kuiper Belt, the large cloud of icy objects at the edge of the Solar System that New Horizons is currently traversing.
