The idea of canned food was invented when Napoleon set a competition for cash for the best way to preserve food for his soldiers.

The fast freezer concept was robbed from the eskimo's who used the same principle to preserve their fish as soon as they were caught.

Of course, I may be wrong, but I did the info of one of my Sat morning cook programmes which happens to be part of a OU syllabus! So it's got to be true!!!

Quick question( serious, I've been trying to remember and can't for the life of me.) When the knights of nee no longer wanted shrubberies built, what did they want??

Progress so far is steady, but I feel we have yet more life enhancing facts that can shared!

They wanted another shrubbery placed slightly to the side and a bit higher than the previous shrubbery.

Did you know that whar we Brits regard as an annoying pest - the humble mosquito is actually the most dangerous creature on the planet, thanks to its ability to spread disease with alarming efficiency. Best known for spreading deadly malaria, mossies also spread elephantiasis, yellow fever, dengue fever and West Nile virus, which was recently introduced to the US and is now prevalent in all states.

Did you know that dolphins dont drink at all (unlike Quins Ladies) they get all their water from the food they eat.
