Trivia Monday

February , the same month that brings us Valentine's Day is also American Heart Month. More then 60,000 miles of arteries, veins and capillaries in an adult body pulsate to a muscular rhythm --100,000 heartbeats a day.
Happy Valentine's Day

A very appropriate blog. Guess what? I'm taking Cloody to a Valentine Supper at the Church. She's my special Sweet Heart. I may even wear a tie.

100,000 times a day? No wonder I'm always shattered.

Frank, you're a real romantic!

Wow, 100,00 heart beats a day? Guess the heart is the hardest working organ in the body. We'd better try and keep it healthy. Great picture!

Happy Hearts Day!
