Did You Know That...

Those who regret getting a tattoo may be in for a shock if they want to rid themselves of this type of body art. Tattoo removal can cost more than double the price of getting the tattoo; and, it may take eight or more laser treatments, spaced at least a month apart, for full removal.

An autoharp, which is a chorded zither, is a stringed instrument which usually has 36or 37 strings; but, can sometimes have more. The instrument has buttons which, when pressed, play a certain chord. Skilled players can not only play chords, but can play melodies as well.

A tipi (or teepee) was quite a comfortable home for the Native peoples of North America. Made from animal skins and wooden poles, they were warm in the winter, cool in the summer and stayed dry, no matter what the weather.

The six-legged, long-bodied dragonfly should be considered a welcome insect. Using its two pairs of strong wings, dragonflies are fast flyers. They eat pesky mosquitoes, flies and ants.
