The Difference Between a Snail and a Slug….

Both snails and slugs have gel-like bodies, travel on a trail of slime and have four tentacles – to on the top of the head with eyes on the end and two below the head for sensory purposes. The main difference is the most obvious one: The slug doesn’t carry a shell, although some may have plate on top of the mantle, which is just behind the head.

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 1910, 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.
