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.


  • A wee lesson in Geography

“The driest place on Earth is the Atacama Desert near the Pacific coastline of Chile. The average rainfall in these desert mountains is less than .004 inches per year. There are even some locations within the desert where no rain has fallen for more than 400 years. Yet even in this arid wasteland, there is some water. There are some salt lakes throughout the region, and in some elevations, where the temperature never exceeds freezing, snow still remains from previous storms.


  • About junk foods:

The top four most popular junk foods are: Potato chips, ice cream, candy bars, and cookies.  According to  DoSomething.Org, Americans eat 31% more prepackaged food than fresh such as fruit, raw vegetables, etc.

If you wish to know preferences by state visit the Zippia link below, where they have compiled preferences in all 50 states.

  • How to preserve your most treasured garment keep sakes?

Wrap tightly in blue tissue paper and store in a sealed bag or box.


  • Best time to try on for new shoes?

Probably in the late afternoon or early evening and why?

Because it is the time of day when your feet have expanded the most after a day’s activity.

Your feet are the smallest when you wake up in the morning.


  • And here’s another tip re your shoes:

If you are having problems when fitting your feet into your shoes, then sprinkle the insides with some baby powder or any other type of powder!

It works like a charm!


  • A home made suggestion for an after meal digestion?

Why not try enjoying some fruit?


  • Looking for ways to have your plants stay alive while on a short trip?

Here is a solution if your trip does not exceed 2 weeks.

First, place enough water in your pots as if you are watering normally.

Next wrap your plants in plastic making sure that the entire plant is covered.

When you return remove the plastic and presto!

Your plants will be healthy, wealthy, and wise!

What happened here?

The plastic helped to keep the moisture preserved in your plants!


  • A wee tip about water?

60% of our bodies is made up of water!


  • A useful tip for keeping your bill payment straight and on track:

Best to use just one credit card and in this way you only have to deal with just one payment.


10)A word on taking chargers with you when you travel:

Keep in mind that the voltage for Europe and the UK  are different from North America and parts of the Caribbean.

It is always best to consult your electronics store to ensure that you have the correct charger before you travel.
