FACTS

Hello Monday here I sit drenched in sweat and not that hot either, here are this weeks facts………….

The phrase “rule of thumb” is derived from an old English law which stated that you could not beat your wife with anything wider then your thumb.

The colder the room you sleep in the more likely you will have bad dreams.

In 1987, a 1,000cc motorbike travelled one mile at the Illawarra mini bike club here in New South Wales, Australia. It was carrying 46 passengers.

Italy once had a campaign for Schweppes Tonic Water that translated the name into “Schweppes Toilet Water”.

November translated literally means the ninth month, even though now days it is the eleventh month.

  1. Dearest Jo-Anne,
    Don’t know about the dreaming temperature related…
    As for the rule of thumb, that sounds awful for the purpose of beating your wife! Nice size for anything made out of metal or even wood… Gosh what an awful thought.
    Hugs,
    Mariette
