DID YOU KNOW...

The Myth: Dry cleaning is “dry” cleaning.
The Fact: Dry cleaning isn’t really dry. The clothes are put in a large washing machine
and treated with a variety of chemical solutions, such as perchloroethylene, after which a
drier removes the solvents. Cleaned, yes. Dry, no. It’s called “dry” cleaning because no
water is used.

Emily Dickenson (1830-1886), America's most famous female
poet, published only seven poems in her lifetime; all were
published anonymously and against her will.
After an unfortunate affair with a married minister, Dickenson lived as a recluse, never
leaving her family's property after the age of 35.
It wasn't until after her death, at 56, that her nearly 2000 poems were discovered. In
1890, four years after her death, Dickenson's first volume of verse was published
