There are certain times when nothing feels better than talking off one’s shoes and going barefoot. Like after a long day at work and your feet feel like they are in a shoe prison. Or walking in plush, green grass. Or strolling on a sandy beach and wading in the water.  Today beckons you to go the entire day without shoes. Enjoy!

Interesting facts about Milk. With today’s technology, a person can milk 100 cows in an hour with modern machines. It used to take a person 1 hour to milk 6 cows by hand. It takes 10 pounds of milk to make a pound of cheese, 21 pounds of milk to make a pound of butter, and 12 pounds of milk to make a single gallon of ice cream.
