Amazing what you can learn from taking a break and reading. 

1. Not every Model T was black.

For the first few years of production, Ford’s famous car came in gray, green, blue, and red. It was only after 1914 that customers could order “any color so long as it is black,” as the dark paint dried faster than other hues.

2. You can major in wine at Cornell University.

Technically it’s a degree in Viticulture and Enology (a.k.a. the cultivation of grapes and the science of winemaking), but we’re still sending in our application. 

3. The Northern cardinal is the most popular state bird. (One of my favorite birds)

Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia, and West Virginia all picked it as their favorite species. The western meadowlark takes second place as the honoree in six other states.

  1. One of the pictures lost when my Uncles computer died was my grandfather standing next to his first car (a Model T).

    Cardinals are amazing (and the picture you choose was perfect) they are without a doubt my favorite bird.

    I saw a female cardinal yesterday but didn’t see if she was nesting.
