You learn something new every single day...what was it you learned today?

I have a few things...

**I learned why the cartoon/book dog Clifford was so big...it was all the love his little girl gave him. (Daughter asked, so I asked the mothers of Cafe Mom LOL)

**Leaders in the Federal Reserve System, who control our monetary policy, are not elected into their positions in any sort of democratic way. (Currently finishing my MBA in finance and didn't know that until reading this week's material)

**That some lenders will roll the cost of new appliances into a home loan. (one of my girlfriends is closing on her first house this week...guess we never pursued that when we bought our home...but they're doing it for her).

Ahhh...it all contributes to bank of trivial knowledge. LOL

So...what did you all learn today? Big or small? Important or silly?
