The 8th Wonder of the World

Did you know...

Willard Wigan has created sculptures so small you can not see them
with the naked eye yet they are painted and in correct detail. The sculptures are so small they fit inside the eye of a needle or on the head of a pin.
He uses a hair off the back of a housefly to paint them. He carved a dollhouse so little it fits inside the eye of a needle and inside the dollhouse is a doll smaller than a blood cell. An elephant he carved from a fragment of a grain of sand is worth $300,000.

When asked how he started he said...

“It began when I was five years old,” says Willard. “I started making houses for ants because I thought they needed somewhere to live. Then I made them shoes and hats. It was a fantasy world I escaped to where my dyslexia didn’t hold me back and my teachers couldn’t criticize me. That’s how my career as a micro-sculptor began.”

Private collectors of Willards work include HRH Prince Charles, Sir Elton John, former heavyweight boxing champion, Mike Tyson, Lord Bath and former Davis Cup Captain and leisure tycoon, David Lloyd.

This is some of the most amazing art work I have ever seen.

How to Stop Paying Credit Card Interest

Did you know...
There is a legal way to get out of paying that high interest on your credit cards.
And it is so simple to do.

Everyone who has a credit card gets more offers to apply for other cards almost daily.
It may be a good time to take the time to really check out these offers. Check each offer to see if they are offering a "NO INTEREST" for 12 to 16 months with a NO transfer fee. If you find one like that, then it's time to take advantage of this "no interest" offer. Just think how much you can pay down the principal when you have no interest to pay.

You may want to pay a little more during this no interest time to get that card paid off. But don't fret if you still owe more than a thousand at the end of the time allotted then it may be time to transfer that to a new "no interest" card. Before you do this check to see if the card you have is charging for this transfer. It may still be a good choice even if they do charge a fee, the highest I have found is around $50 to $75 but that would be less than what you would pay in interest on a thousand dollars in a year.

I have done this with 3 credit cards and it worked fine. I am now making money with my credit cards. Want to know how I am doing that, click here--> Credit Cards...How to Earn From Them

Human Lungs

Did you know...

The right lung is larger than your left even though your heart lies more in the left than the right? Some think of their lungs as being empty space but in reality they are
much like a sponge with small holes throughout them. The left lung is divided into two lobes and the right into three lobes. Together, the lungs contain approximately 1500 miles (2,400 km) of airways and 300 to 500 million alveoli, having a total surface area roughly the same area as a singles badminton court. The surface area is roughly the same area as one side of a tennis court. Now that's a big area... Furthermore, if all of the capillaries that surround the alveoli were unwound and laid end to end, they would extend for about 620 miles.

Pet Hair

Did you know...

You can recycle your pets shedded fur? Yeah, I too thought this was a joke
when I first heard about it, but people are doing it. Some find it disgusting,
nasty or just plain crazy. But stop and think about it we wear all kind of fur
from animals, and from some even their skin...I'm thinking, Leather!
So why not wear fur from our pets?
Those long haired dogs and cats shed a lot of fur that could be made into warm blankets or throws or muffs, even hats.
Here are a few sites that you can visit to learn more about spinning your pet's
fur so you can make whatever item you want. Oh, I almost forgot to mention this,
The fur from a dog or cat is warmer than wool from a sheep.
