Wherein I endeavour to share writerly advice lightened with humour, pictures and a dollop of 1930s-1940s history.
Elspeth - A post from Elspeth is also called a blessing - at least by me :-).Thanks for sharing these cool facts. You know, I think I'll research nutmeg a little more ;-).
Margot; *blushing* Thanks, Margot for such a kind comment! Let me know what you find out about nutmeg...
Don't tell Fenny about #7. And I actually knew #9, although when I was little I thought it was the other way around...(I've missed visiting your blog!)
Elisa; I've never seen "It's a Wonderful Life". I'm strangely proud of this. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by - I know you're busy doing important things.
These are some interesting facts! I have to wonder what the thought process behind Donald's middle name was...
I'm guessing it's the reason why he's in the sailor suit.
Elspeth, I thought I was the only one who hadn't seen Wonderful Life. Then again, I haven't seen Titanic, either. I did know 2, 5, & 11Terry
You haven't seen Titanic? I'm not surprised you knew some of these already.
Be thankful you're not a #7.Happy Weekend!
I always am.
In Oz the # key is called a "hash key"
We call it a pound key here in Canada. But now, with Twitter, it's a hashmark.
I'm so glad he didn't go with The Wizard of AN.
I love all of these and knew none of them. My favourite by a country kilometre is a pregnant gold fish being called a 'twit'. Why would you call it anything? "Oh you stupid twit! Gravid again and the bowl full to overflowing with castles and plastic plants!"
Please leave a comment as I love to hear from you!
