Welcome to my Donna’s did you know diary for this month and pleased to share the following with you.


Here’s what I learned for this month.


  • How to know when pineapple is ripe to be pealed?

Just give a gentle tug to one of those spiky leaves and if it comes out easily then the pineapple is good to be pealed.

If it does not then the pineapple still needs to ripe properly.


  • A very important tip on the colour of your urine!

If it is clear then your kidneys are functioning properly.

If it is yellow then it could either be from the pills that you may be taking or there could be an infection.

Best to check with your family physician.


  • About those pretty little candle flies!

If you are familiar with these pretty flying insects then here is an informational tip for you!

The female candle flies are extremely vicious!

They use their lights to attract the males

And when the males get close enough?

They attack them and yes!  They devour them!


  • Traveling to Saint Martin for the holidays?

If you live in North America and are traveling to the Dutch side of this wonderful island,

Then there is no need for you to take a power converter with you.


  • About gold!

Gold has been treasured by mankind for a long time,

with gold bars and jewelry dating as early as 4000 B.C.

It also has some very interesting properties.

For instance, a cubic foot of gold weighs about half-a-ton,

and a one-ounce piece of

gold can be pressed to cover 300 square feet.

Gold is refined to remove its impurities.

This usually involves a lengthy process of heating and cooling cycles.

Gold is tested with heat; it is made pure by going through the fire.


  •  All about eating a bit too much turkey?

And during this holiday time turkey quickly becomes one of the favoured meats.

Just do not eat too much of the bird as it tends to make you sleepy.


  • About refreshing your liquid honey when it starts to go sugary?

Place your jar in a bowl of very hot water and let it stay there for about half hour.

Presto!  The liquid honey returns.


  • What’s this about having liquid in a ceramic glass?

Well, ceramic glasses keep your liquid cooler for much longer than do metal glasses or glass ones.
