Rogers Gardens - First Halloween Activity Of The Season!
Did You Know? - Pumpkins, like other squash, are thought to have originated in North America. The oldest evidence, pumpkin-related seeds dating between 7000 and 5500 BC, were found in Mexico.
Oodles of goodies for your home!

"I am purple"
The fall colors were brilliant
Come on in!
Wreaths were everywhere

Did You Know? - There are 206 bones in the adult human skeleton, although this number depends on whether the pelvic bones (the hip bones on each side) are counted as one or three bones on each side (ilium, ischium, and pubis), whether the coccyx or tail bone is counted as one or four separate bones, and does not count the variable wormian bones between skull sutures. Similarly, the sacrum is usually counted as a single bone, rather than five fused vertebrae.
There is also a variable number of small sesamoid bones, commonly found in tendons. The patella or kneecap on each side is an example of a larger sesamoid bone. The patellae are counted in the total, as they are constant.
The number of bones varies between individuals and with age - newborn babies have over 270 bones some of which fuse together.
