    Running the gamut…sobering and sad to super silly. Love these…but I will admit the tanks with tea service? A fave…and the bodies in Ben’s basement? Ick. Thanks for the history lessons – conjuring giggles and gasps. 😉

    And I thought I knew some history! Wow! I gasped at several, giggled at many, and had to read a few twice! To think even a baboon would work for brandy. 😬 Thank you for the enlightenment, Mitch!

  9. Speaking of history, if you haven’t already read “They Went That-A-Way” by Malcolm Forbes, you should grab a copy off Amazon. A fun fact-filled little book on how “the famous, infamous and the great died.” Quite a few surprises in there!

    If this is the history I had been taught in school, I would have much less antagonism towards it 🙂

    I love it! Especially the fortune teller’s prediction to Hitler. Know what else? I don’t care if it is capital “T” True or not.

    You’ve most certainly improved the content delivery of your blog since found time to last access it.
    It’s definitely good for one with short attention span.
