Who doesn't love manatees?

Manatees are gorgeous, magnificent creatures. Take a look here!

Here are some fun manatee facts:

(1) These amazing sea bears are herbivores and can eat up to 1200 pounds of seaweed per day!

(2) There are 3 different manatee species: West Indian Manatee, West African Manatee, and Amazonian Manatee. How exotic!

(3) They have extremely low metabolic rates and the West Indian and West African require warm water (of at least 60 degrees).

(4) Elephants are the closest living relatives of manatees and their cousins (known as Dugongs).

(5) Manatees can continuously replace their teeth throughout their lives. 

(6) Manatees can learn basic tasks, are extremely sensitive to touch, and can distinguish colors.

(7) Manatees, along with tree sloths, are the only vertebrates that do not have 7 vertebrae. Manatees have 6.

(8) Manatees have no natural predators.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Today is a wonderful day. I'm enjoying myself today organizing my life, making dark chocolate brownies, and watching Wendy Williams. What more could a gal ask for? Well, on WW she has this thing where you pick a celebrity thanksgiving. Well, here's my list! Who would you have on yours?

(1) Barack and Michelle Obama + Bo Obama. (not so much celebrity as they are political leaders but I would love them over.)

(2) James Franco (I loves me some intellectuals!)

(3) Regis Philbin--I feel like he has the best personality and is so energetic and entertaining. It's impossible to not have a good time when Regis is around.

(4) Jake Gyllenhal--I think he could be friends with Franco, plus he's super hot and entertaining.

(5) Lisa Kudrow--she is ridiculously Hilarious

(6) Julia Louis-Dreyfus--she could be great friends with Lisa Kudrow and I just love her. She is so darn funny.

Have a wonderful Holiday!
