Weird And True Facts.

I will try and post one weird but true fact each weekday. Perhaps on a Saturday when I have some free time, like now. 

In 2014, a missing woman on a vacation in Iceland was found when it was discovered that she was in the search party looking for herself. (Source is from bu.edu website)

Apparently she never considered herself lost. 

Have a blessed weekend, take care and GOD bless.

@MOHLovesAlaska I didn't know that!

Also I'm not sure if I've ever finished a full game of Monopoly. When we were growing up, my siblings and I would start arguing before we ever reached the end. 😂

@AdamPandora I'm with you on that one as well. But I do remember finishing one game out of many upon many. I lost of course, but I also remember it took more than one day to complete. 

Have a great day dear friend, take care and GOD bless.

Good Friday morning dear friend, welcome to another weird but true fact. According to Real Fact #223 The Basenji dog breed is the only dog breed that does not bark. 

According to thesprucepets.com Basenjis are nicknamed the “barkless dog.” Instead of a typical canine bark, they make a yodel-like sound—among other vocalizations—due to the shape of their vocal cords. But even though they’re relatively quiet, they still require lots of exercise and mental stimulation.

Have a great day, take care and GOD bless.

Good Wednesday morning dear friend, welcome to weird but true facts. 

Polar bears rely heavily on their highly developed sense of smell to hunt ringed seals. This marine mammal locates its prey from as far away as 20 miles, using its olfactory system as a guide before swooping down and scooping up unsuspecting seals.

Have a great day, take care and GOD bless.
