And now for today’s random fact:

It is believed that Shakespeare was 46 around the time that the King James Version of the Bible was written. In Psalms 46, the 46th word from the first word is shake and the 46th word from the last word is spear.


Thanks for listening, Edsel Ford. Have a great day!
