The questions were alright, but I think a real test of the practical application of what to recycle and how to recycle would be more fitting to an audience who would take the time to test their knowledge. For example:where to recycle corks from wine, cooking oil and other bottles; batteries; paint cans; old clothing unfit for charities; used shoes; used outdoor rugs; plastic coated ice cream bar wrappers; when to wash an article before placing it in a recycle container;old pillows. Thank You, Christine Santee

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
