“Sun Joules…. No in service meal served on this flight….. Medieval Beaver Town”

Approximately 430 quintillion joules of energy from the Sun hit the Earth every hour.  That’s more than the total energy everyone on the planet uses in a year.

The world’s shortest commercial flight is between two islands in northern Scotland.  The flight is 1.7 miles and the official time is two minutes . . . but it takes closer to 47 seconds.

Beverly Hills was named after Beverly Farms, Massachusetts.  That was named after Beverley, Yorkshire, England.  And that town was named in 700 A.D. because of a colony of beavers.  So Beverly Hills is named after medieval English beavers.
