And did you know?
If you think that George Washington chopped down a cherry tree and then admitted his wrongdoing by saying to his father, “I can not tell a lie,” think again. He didn’t say it; he didn’t even chop down the tree! Parson Mason Weems (1759–1825), one of Washington’s biographers, made up the story, hoping to demonstrate Washington’s honesty.
This tale is not the only myth about Washington. His wooden dentures? They weren’t made of wood. Instead, they were made of hippopotamus teeth that had been filed down to fit Washington’s mouth.
Rainbow sheens are created by fuel and oil leaks from cars
and trucks and can be seen around Cordova every time it starts
to rain. During heavy rain the oil droplets fl ow into our local
waterbodies some of which we get our drinking water and most of
them supporting salmon. You can prevent stormwater pollution by
checking under you vehicles for leaks and getting them fi xed. It’s
good for your vehicles, it saves money on fuel and oil and it’s good
for salmon ... Remember, don’t run-off Salmon!
Great wintertime fun in the sun.
