President’s Day Trivia
Did every president live in the White House?

Answer: No

Not every U.S. president lived in the White House. Our first president, George Washington, oversaw the construction of the building when it began in 1792 but never got to live there. The first president who got to call White House “home” was John Adams, who moved in with his wife, Abigail, in 1800.

Our Deepest Fear – is not that We are in Adequate.
Our deepest fear – is that We are Powerful Beyond Measure
We ask ourselves – who am I to be Brilliant – Gorgeous – Talent and Fabulous?
Actually who are You not to be!
It is our light – not our Darkness that most frighten us.
You playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlighten about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were all meant to shine as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of G-d that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; but in every one.
And as we let our own light shine – We unconsciously give other people, permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear - Our presence automatically liberates others.

Note: Nelson Mandala did NOT use this amazing and thought-provoking piece in his 1994 Inaugural Address. Although, he has written wonderful material as such.
However, this was written by Marianne Williamson, from the 1992 book 'A Return To Love.'
We love you both!

Some Eye Facts
·        Eyes heal quickly. With proper care, it only takes about 48 hours for the eye to repair a corneal scratch.
·        The average blink lasts for about 1/10th of a second.
·        Newborns don’t produce tears. They make crying sounds, but the tears don’t start flowing until they are about 4-13 weeks old.
·        The cells in your eye come in different shapes. Rod-shaped cells allow you to see shapes, and cone-shaped cells allow you to see color.
·        Around the world, about 39 million people are blind and roughly 6 times that many have some kind of vision impairment.
·        Your eyes are about 1 inch across and weigh about 0.25 ounce.
·        You blink about 12 times every minute.
·        Even if no one in the past few generations of your family had blue or green eyes, these recessive traits can still appear in later generations.
·        Each of your eyes has a small blind spot in the back of the retina where the optic nerve attaches. You don’t notice the hole in your vision because your eyes work together to fill in each other’s blind spot.
·        80% of vision problems worldwide are avoidable or even curable.
·        Who knew your eyes could be so amazing and complex? 
·        Out of all the muscles in your body, the muscles that control your eyes are the most active.
