    Did you know Ben Franklin first mapped out the Gulf Stream. The Gulf Stream is a warm current going east to west. East bound ships still take advantage of this current.

    When cutting flowers for a bouquet, cut the flower and put it immediately into water. Then put the flowers into a big bowl of water, trimming the bottoms of the stems again under water.  You should leave the flowers in this bowl for 20 to 30 minutes. This takes a little extra time, but the flowers last so much longer. REALLY !!!!!!
