FACTS BECAUSE IT IS MONDAY

Good morning all here we are at another Monday so here are some facts.

Two hundred years ago pregnant women in France were told to look at nice things in order to have pretty babies.

They were also expected to dwell on lovely thoughts and to read slushy books with happy endings. Also to avoid looking at bears and other zoo animals at all costs.

In the 1600’s a hospital in Louvain, France they refused to hire ugly doctors just in case it caused an ugly baby.

In the 1600’s anyone in Turkey caught drinking coffee was condemned to death by law.

Once in China the Beijing Duck Restaurant could seat 9,000 people at one time.

  1. Dearest Jo-Anne,
    Guess that we had no public zoos two hundred years back.
    Oh, there have been some very crazy rulers that only managed harsh ways for instilling the law.
    Guess the seating space cannot be compared to ‘our present’ table sizes.
    Hugs,
    Mariette
