Cool tidbits about Texas: We were our own country for a bit, called the Republic of Texas. We were annexed as a state into the US in 1845. We have the second most land area, after Alaska. California ranks 3rd, and Montana 4th.

An endangered species in Texas that a lot of people don’t know about is the Texas blind salamander: http://en.academic.ru/pictures/enwiki/84/Texas_blind_salamander.jpg Funky, eh?

Stuff My Pet Ruined: http://blogs.discovery.com/daily_treat/2010/09/stuff-my-pet-ruined.html#mkcpgn=fbapl1

And on there, they have a link to a similar page about stuff getting ruined by kids. It’s pretty funny; definitely worth a look. ^_^

The World’s Most Powerful Women, by Forbes

http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/life/the-worlds-most-powerful-women-2397385/

Interesting. Haven’t heard of a LOT of these women, but still interesting. Not thrilled with the formatting of the picture page, how the whole page reloads for each new woman’s picture.

On one, it mentioned the ‘Clinton Global Initiative, or CGI’. Heh. CGI. I don’t know why that amused me so much, I really don’t. XD

Wow, Sarah Jessica Parker is 45? Could’ve fooled me! I would’ve guessed 35. And Martha Stewart is 69. #61, Suze Orman. Recognize her only because I saw her show on tv in the hospital while waiting to meet my newly born nephew. It’s also interesting to see woman heads of state: Germany, Australia, Argentina, Costa Rica, Liberia… And Jordan has a Queen? News to me!

Okay, I know we should be more concerned with real issues, but.. this was slightly amusing: http://news.yahoo.com/video/politics-15749652/raw-video-presidential-seal-falls-during-speech-22295411#video=22315061
