40 questions for fun

My blogging has been very boring and erratic lately so when I came across this post by a fellow blogger, Regina, I thought that I’d give it a go, just because it sounds like fun 🙂

4. What flavor of Kool-aid? I don’t really know what kool aid is?! I’m assuming a sweetened drink of sorts… not really my thing.

Two hundred!

When I posted last night about my Family photo, the post was my 199th published post on this blog… and so I had to make my 200th something fun and interesting for you!

Here are some fun facts about the number 200:

  1. Every dandelion flower produces 200 seeds
  2. 200 Japanese executives die on the golf course each year
  3. In Greek mythology, Typhon the Titan, “father of all monsters”, had 200 eyes; 2 for each of his 100 heads
  4. 200 is an HTTP status code indicating a successful connection
  5. 200 litres of water are needed to produce 1 glass of milk
  6. According to Bullinger’s study of biblical literature, the number 200 signifies “insufficiency”
