I don't know about you...

...but the Sesame Street characters brought a smile to my face every time I hit up the internet for random information this past week.

And to provide you a sampling of my recent Google adventures, did you know that both Ohio and North Carolina feature the Wright Flyer on their state quarters? Apparently it's quite the rivalry. When Ohio adopted the slogan "Birthplace of Aviation," North Carolina also staked their claim--"First in Flight." Although the first flight actually took place in Kittyhawk, NC, the brothers called Ohio home and did much of their planning here in OH (hence Wright-Patterson AFB, where Matt & I are right now). In fact, they continued to do a great deal of testing right where the base is built now. Meanwhile, the second half of Wright-Patt comes from Frank Stuart Patterson, who died in an aviation accident at the Wilbur Wright field. There's more, but I think you get the idea.

How did people ever survive without Google?

PS-I am happy to announce that this post led to the discovery that my husband can do an excellent, spot-on impersonation of the Count. Yet another one of his hidden talents.

Can't get enough of the sesame street characters and I certainly don't know how the world ever functioned without google! On another note, thank you so much for your sweet comment on my post.
