First I've gotta post my new hunky cover...isn't he luscious?  Quest for Magic is now out at MuseItUp and all the usual sites... I simply love this cover....

And on to these facts that really are truly pretty unbelievable.

2.  If you live there 190 days a year and aren't convicted felon, you get an annual check from the state of Alaska just for not leaving.

3.  Glenn Buratti, who has epilepsy and autism, turned six in 2015. His mom invited his entire class to his birthday party, but no one came. Heartbroken, she posted about it in a Facebook group, and fifteen local kids showed up, as well as firefighters, police officers, the county sheriff and lots of presents.

4.  A 67-year-old woman named Dorothy Fletcher had a heart attack on a plane. When a stewardess asked if there was a doctor on board, 15 people stood up They were on their way to a cardiology conference. The woman survived.

Jean, I love your cover. Congrats! These facts are amazing, and I can't really pick only one. I like the one about the Navy SEAL being shot 27 times. Whenever I watch an action movie, like Jason Bourne, or an action TV show, and the good guys never get wounded despite being outnumbered by the baddies, I think how unrealistic that is. Guess not so unrealistic after all. I like the one about the state of Alaska too. And the one about the little boy with autism broke my heart.

What a fabulous cover! He is verrrry handsome:) I always love your amazing facts but I'm with Cara about the Navy Seal. The one about the state of Alaska cracked me up! I wonder how long its been on the books? I remember reading about the little boy with autism and wondered why children aren't being taught compassion. The answer is obviously the parents who decided whether or not they should attend and that is a very sad state of affairs. I'm glad he ended up having a wonderful time with his guests!
