My list is pretty long(lol), but the most recent embarrassing thing that happened was when I paid for gas, then immediately drove off with the nozzle still in the tank. Then having to go back to put the nozzle where it was supposed to be was surely the walk(drive) of shame.(lol) That's what I get for rushing, right?
This happened 2 years ago, and my face is still bright red. Has this ever happened to you?
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory from 1971 and Charlie & the Chocolate Factory from 2005 have 2 really distinctive differences.
a) Willy Wonka used 150,000 gallons of water, cream and chocolate for the river, causing the set to really smell pretty gross by the end of filming. Also, unless a scene called for eating it, the candy was all fake.
b) Charlie used 245,000 gallons of fake chocolate for the river, but the lollipops on the trees and the giant pink sugar canes were all very real.
Coconut oil seems to have a zillion uses, but did you know that it's considered antibacterial and may reduce the itchiness and irritation of a bug bite? No need to waste money by purchasing it from a health food store. It's reasonably priced in places like Aldi or Big Lots.
Raise your hand if you're a fan of eating late at night. Feel less guilty by ordering Nightfood, the yummy low calorie ice cream without that high volume of sugar that could keep you up all night watching talk shows or reality tv. Who wouldn't want to eat something as decadent as Midnight Chocolate or Full Moon Vanilla? Here in NC it can be found at Lowe's Supermarket, but it can also be ordered online at www.nightfood.com.
Who's ready to admit they've been watching Family Feud since 1976 when Richard Dawson was the host? There have been a total of 6 hosts since the show started with Steve Harvey currently filling the role now.
Mr. Dawson was known for kissing the women on the show, and sometimes it was controversial, but he believed it made them more comfortable, and after a survey proved him right, it was full steam ahead. In 1981 the 49 year old game show host met the love of his life and ended up kissing then 24 year old contestant Gretchen Johnson a whopping 4 times during the show.
|Richard clearly attracted to Gretchen|
Speaking of kissing, International Kissing Day is on July 6, not to be confused with National Kissing Day which happened last month.

Is your passport powerful? According to the Henley Passport Index, these are the passports that allow you to travel from country to country without special approval or Visas. Can you guess the countries that tie for #1 on the list? That would be Japan and Singapore who allow travel into 189 nations, with South Korea, Finland and Germany following at a close second allowing you easy access into 187 nations. The US comes in at #6 with 183. If you're wondering who's at the bottom of the list, and considered one of the worst passports to have, that would be Afghanistan with the low number of just 25.

Don't feel like waiting in that long line to get your checked luggage? Ask to gate check your bag making it last to be loaded. Luggage loaded last is normally the first to be placed on the conveyor belt, slowing down your wait time, and making you look like a star as you coast out of the airport.
