Fun-Sized Friday Facts

If Brach’s laid out the candy corn kernels it sells each year end to end, they would wrap around the Earth 4.25 times
How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? On average, a licking machine designed by engineering students at Purdue needed 364.
When the treat was introduced in the 1930s, a 3 Musketeers consisted of separate chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry pieces, hence the name. I think they should bring all the flavors back!
Milky Way bars weren’t named after their home galaxy. The name comes from a type of malted milkshake that was popular in the early 1920s.

 Thanks to Mental Floss for the facts! By the way...Fun-Sized? Liars! When will they realize that when it comes to fun...Size Matters!

Cyber tourist- Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland

I love the beauty and the Lore of Erin, Hope to someday visit it in person. It will definitely be in a story. Thanks to

" It was likely molten lava, cooled into some 40,000 hexagonals of dark stone steps, a few million years ago, which gave us our famous basalt columns. But we prefer the other version of events: the one about a Celtic warrior who got too big for his boots and went a-knockin’ on the wrong giant’s island. Legend goes that Finn MacCool built the basalt highway to Scotland to challenge rival giant, Benandonner, to a fight. But Finn’s wide-eyed glimpse of the enormous Scot sent him scurrying back to Ireland and to his quick-witted wife, Oonagh. As Benandonner thundered down the highway after him, Oonagh disguised the quavering Finn as an infant. “Don’t wake the baby” she scolded the giant Scot as he burst in the door. “If that’s the kid, I don’t want to meet the father”, thinks Benandonner, turning tail for Scotland and ripping up the basalt paving stones behind him. We reckon Finn’s oversized luck makes a more lively explanation than a geography lesson, but that’s just us."

Passion, it lies in all of us, sleeping… waiting… and though unwanted… unbidden… it will stir… open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us… guides us… passion rules us all, and we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love… the clarity of hatred… and the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion maybe we’d know some kind of peace… but we would be hollow… Empty rooms shuttered and dank. Without passion we’d be truly dead.” – Joss Whedon,

First Kiss

At the first kiss I felt
Something melt inside me
That hurt in an exquisite way
All my longings, all my dreams and sweet anguish,
All the secrets that slept deep within me came awake,
 Everything was transformed and enchanted
And made sense.
~Hermann Hesse

Monday Muse

When blocked I like to check out the word of the day...Today it was the adjective, Censorious. Which means harshly critical or expressing formal disapproval. Here is the paragraph that came from it:

 Kate caught the censorious look in his stare and her stomach flipped, her heart thundered in her ears. Her flesh heated as she averted her eyes and tried to focus on the man handing her a drink,instead of him. Why should any opinion of his matter? He’d made his choice years ago and she wasn't it. There was no need to want to please him or care if he disapproved of her choices...except, he was right.
