Yes "Cessna" is a pretty name....daughter, Heather, liked the name...she thought she had made it up..did not realize it was the name of an airplane!...lol Cessna was born after they quit building Cessna's...so we have called her the last Cessna ever built..lol

Hi Cat and Weedy.
In England, blowing dandelion seeds can be used to "tell the time". If it takes 5 "puffs" to blow all the seeds off the head then it is 5 o'clock. 3 "puffs" is 3 o'clock, etc......just explaining Toto's comment. LOL.

Really? LOL..we only use them for making wishes that I know of..lol..will have to try that now... :)
