7 Random Facts

I love facts.  I mean sincerely love them.  One Christmas my sister-in-law gave me The Encyclopedia of Useless Information.  I can't think of 7 interesting facts about myself at the moment, so I will share with you some of my favorite websites to read about interesting stuff.

 Did you know...
About 5% of the entire US potato crop goes to make McDonald's french fries?



Got any interesting facts?
