An acre is what a man and horse (or oxen or mule) could plow in one day.

My granfather used to do that when he first farmed, and that is all he could do as well.

Annie gets a gold star, and the rest of the readers get a new question: Where in America is the place that did not get any measurable rain for more than 2 years?

Death Valley? (not sure where it is, and I am glad I don't live there!)

-- Melissa (, January 08, 2002.

Just a bit south of there at Bagdad, Ca. no rain for 767 days. Fearless leader get a gold star.

New question: How many buildings, standing today, worlwide are over 1000 feet high?

How about 25?

-- Melissa (, January 08, 2002.

Howdy, my guess is 33 buildings. I have a something for you. How long is a china man.

There were 26 before the trade towers destruction, now only 24, Melissa you were close. I think the Chinaman question might be a word play question.
