    How fast do raindrops fall? Not including wind-driven rain, raindrops fall between 7 and 18 miles per hour (3 and 8 meters per second) in still air. The range in speed depends on the the size of the raindrop. Air friction breaks up raindrops when they exceed 18 miles per hour.

    Equal portions of Trader Joe's pumpkin butter and mayonnaise with a dash of lemon juice makes a tasty salad dressing.

    Drinking 16 ounces of ice water(0 degrees Celsius), requires the body to burn 17.5 Calories to warm the water up to body temperature.

    Oh! I did not know that! We always sang that in grade school music class!
    And here we were giggling over "Rock-a my soul in the bosom of Abraham".
