Good Morning Nanty Glo!
Sunday, May 5 2002

No postcard today

Hello Listmembers,

 
David Caldwell's computer virus problems are still plaguing him, so he wasn't able to send his weekly postcard from Nanty Glo. If not, I expect to be checking in with you Monday morning as usual, with Judy Rose's "Where Are They Now?" post.
 
best regards,

—Webmaster Jon Kennedy

Not necessarily funny, but perhaps amusing "facts"

34. In Shakespeare's time, mattresses were secured on bed frames by ropes. When you pulled on the ropes, the mattress tightened, making the bed firmer to sleep on. Hence the phrase "goodnight, sleep tight." ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
35. It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month or what we know today as the honeymoon.
