Frozen fish on display @ Pike's Market, Seattle
Taken by my husband
Clarence Birdseye is generally tapped as the first to freeze fish - (but the Inuit did it before he did - but did not see the money making potential). (The Indians always get left out of the credits.) Clarance was a fur trader in Labrador, NF. He figured out if the fish was frozen quickly it was still delicious months later.

Here is a very disturbing trivial fact -All pet hamsters are descended from a single female wild golden hamster and her litter of 12 young in Syria in 1930. Hamsters are pure chewing evil. We had several - the first pair -2 brothers - one killed the other - I heard it's last dying breath. Yuck. The second pair was supposed to be 2 sisters - well a litter later - I took them all to the pet store - probably to their absolute death in a reptile's stomach - Good Riddance!

And that is quite a honker - no wonder it's bleeding killed him.
Here is a trivial fact about me:
I like to take pictures.
