Humming

Fun fact of the day…

Newborn brown bear cubs produce a loud, continuous humming while nursing, which is believed to help stimulate their mother’s milk production. This noise is so loud, it can be heard from outside of the den!

Once upon a book?

Fun fact of the day…

ABC’s Once Upon a Time is expanding its kingdom to the publishing realm with a new book series. The narrative will be told in alternating points-of-view—that of Emma Swan (portrayed by Jennifer Morrison in the show) in the real world of Storybrooke, and Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) in Fairy Tale Land.
