Question Didja Know . . . . . . . . ? Friday, 1 July 2011

Mornin’ all and happy TGIF


. . . . . Didja Know?

The term "honeymoon" is derived from the Babylonians who declared mead, a honey-flavored wine, the official wedding drink.

The bride's parents were required to keep the groom supplied with the drink for the month following the wedding

Cool, Joy! I didn't know that. I usually drink dry, red wine, but once in a while have a desserty mead wine, and it's delicious! Now, all I need is a groom!
