Creating collages made out of such things as newspaper clippings and leaves is a popular activity for young children (and old folks!)
 
The word "coller" comes from the French language and means 'to glue'.

Elvis Presley made the first of three appearances on the Ed Sullivan Toast Of The Town TV show.
 
Later episodes, of which, nostalgically, sometimes turn up on assorted specialty channels these days.
 
Ironically, Ed wasn't hosting that first night that Elvis was on.
 
Actor Charles Laughton was filling in and Elvis and Laughton never actually met.
 
Elvis's two songs were broadcast from Hollywood, while Laughton was at the CBS studios in New York.
 
The ratings for Elvis' appearance of the Sullivan show were astronomical --- 83% of the viewing audience, or about 54 million people watched.
 
The ratings record stops until 1964 when the Beatles appeared on Sullivan's show.

September 3, 1752
 
The day that never happened in England.
 
In fact, that day and the next 10 never occurred as England adopted the Gregorian Calendar.
 
This changeover on September 2, 1752, required that 11 days be dropped.
 
The calendar adjustment did not sit well with the citizens of the day, who rioted when they thought that the government had stolen 11 days out of their lives.

Researchers at the University of Adelaide in South Australia have found evidence that left-pawed dogs may be more aggressive than right-pawed dogs.
 
Just like left-and-right-handedness in humans, some dogs show a preference for using one paw over the other when doing a tricky task.
 
In the study, 75 dogs of different breeds were observed attempting to get food out of a cylindrical toy.
 
The researches identified whack paw each dog favoured.
 
Owners of the left-pawed canines were more likely to report that their dogs were aggresses, especially when approached by strangers.

Baby elephant seals don't stay small for very long.
 
Because the mother elephant seal's milk is amazingly rich, compared to the milk of most other mammals, it allows the babies to gain weight quickly.

Blow dryers are  a hair-styling tool used by many people each day.
 
The first one was available only in hair salons and was invented by a Frenchman named Alexander Godefrey in 1890.
 
Because it was not portable, women would sit under it to dry their locks.

Snowy owls live in the Arctic tundra and in Northern parts of Canada, Alaska, and Eurasia.
 
Males are white; females are white with some dark spots.
 
A snowy owl's favourite meal is a lemming, but it finds other small rodents quite tasty, as well.

They have to nest on the ground -- there is almost no vegetation, much less trees.

On October 8, 1871, The Great Chicago Fire left 325,000 people homeless.
 
The storey on how the fire started?  
 
SUPPOSEDLY, Mrs. O'Leary's cow kicked over a lantern during milking and that small fire eventually spread throughout the city.
 
NOT TRUE!!
 
Mrs. O'Leary was actually in bed when the Chicago fire broke out and had done the milking some time earlier.
 
A reporter later admitted to having made up the cow yarn to add a dash of colour to his story.

People with digestive problems might want to try eating a papaya every now and then.
 
Chymopapain and papain are two enzymes found in this tropical fruit that help the body break down protein.
 
 
(I always sprinkle my pieces with a little lime juice...it helps to bring out the flavour)
