The next Las Madres meeting will be on July 19th at  7:15 pm at Randi's house.  We will do a salad potluck and play some games.  (Bring some!)  If you want to go in the jacuzzi afterwards, bring a suit and towel ( We can leave the lights off, so shaving of legs or elsewhere is optional!).  Call Randi to let her know what salad you will be bringing.  Randi will provide drinks, bread, and dessert.

Saturday Coffee Clatches Continue

Meet your Las Madres friends for some coffee and conversation at the Starbuck's at White and Aborn on Saturday mornings at 9am.  Every third Saturday is a "field trip" - check the Coming Events calendar for the location of this month's excursion.  NOTE:  It has been decided to forego the field trips for the summer, they will be resumed come September.


Things I did not know (and every American should):

     1. The citrus soda 7-UP was created in 1929; "7" was selected because the original containers were 7 ounces. "UP" indicated the direction of the bubbles.

     2. Mosquito repellents don't repel. They hide you. The spray blocks the mosquito's sensors so they don't know you're there.

     17. Apples, not caffeine, are more efficient at waking you up in the morning.

     18. The 57 on the Heinz ketchup bottle represents the number of varieties of pickles the company once had.

     19. The plastic things on the end of shoelaces are called aglets.

     20. Most dust particles in your house are made from dead skin.

     37. A duck's quack doesn't echo and no one knows why.
