Hello Monday and world it is another nice day here in Newie, not too hot nor too cold, went to my aqua class now I am home for a while till the time comes to go get Leo from school. Anyway Monday means it is did you know day, so here are this weeks facts.

When inventor James Hetherington first wore his new invention, the top hat in London in 1797, it caused quite a stir, so much that he was immediately arrested and thrown in jail because he appeared on the public highway wearing upon his head a tall structure of shining lustre and calculated to disturb timid people.

In the 15th century a man was given the title “official uncorker of bottles” by Queen Elizabeth1. A law was passed that stated all bottles found washed up on beaches had to be opened by this man and no one else, in case they contained sensitive military messages. The penalty for anone else opening a bottle was death.
