Martha's television producers share some fascinating facts you may be surprised to learn about Martha.

1. Martha is an insomniac and watches lots of late-night and cable-access television. In fact, that's how she discovered our pet expert, Marc Morrone.

2. Martha has a special language she uses only with animals.

3. Her favorite scent? Unscented!

4. Martha's favorite pen is the felt-tipped "le pen" -- in black, brown, or blue, depending on what she's signing. For the holidays, she even breaks out red.

5. Martha loves Post-Its, and leaves notes for herself -- and others -- all over the house and office. She's even been known to color coordinate them with the decor.

6. She's been known to stand in front of an open refrigerator and drink buttermilk straight from the carton and eat pickles right out of the jar. If she spots some liverwurst, forget about it -- she's in heaven.

7. If you are lucky enough to be invited to Skylands, her home in Maine, the 5 a.m. hikes are mandatory.

8. She once sent an email banning black rubber-soled shoes from the office because of the streaks they left on the floors -- only she left out the R, so it read "black steaks."

9. She's a big fan of rapper Eminem.

10. She's never really liked bananas, but she absolutely loves hot dogs.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!

Dear Martha, ive been your fan for many years. I have three ideas that i think you may be interested in helping me invent. I did go to Invent Help however, they wanted alot of money to put down for just one od my ideas. I dont want your money. All i want is your help making my ideas become real. Im a woman who lives on the lowest SSI income for the state of NJ. I Live on section 8, which if you dont know, is i have to rely on the government to pay my rent. Never the less, Im very creative. Pleas

I will only eat bananas in cakes or mixed into something (it is a texture thing.) I like unscented too!

The Tabs on Foil Box,plastic wrap,ect have been there for as long as I remember,it's to hold the roll in so it won't fall out I'm pretty sure,I think they don't put the Tabs in 1st in case you need to get the roll started esp that dang plastic Wrap!!!

"Well, I would like to share this with you. Yesterday I went to throw out an empty Reynolds foil box and for some reason I turned it and looked at the end of the box. And written on the end it said, "Press here to lock end". Right there on each end of the box is a tab to lock the roll in place. How long has this little locking tab been there? I then looked at a generic brand of aluminum foil and it had one, too. I then looked at a box of Saran wrap and it had one too!"

In a year from now, watch for my email: My son was just promoted to Chef de Cuisine for the Portland City Grill, a five star in Portland OR. Give him some time to create and refine his style, then it might be something of interest for you. Dont' know if you ever get to the Pacific Northwest (oh - Seattle, you did) but Portland has some very eclectic dining experiences. Wish there was a spell check ... pardon my errors!
