    But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn't even afford to buy a pot......they "didn't have a pot to piss in" & were the lowest of the low. The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature isn't just how you like it, think about how things used to be.

    Here are some facts about the 1500s:

    Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May, and they still smelled pretty good by June.. However, since they were starting to smell . ...... . Brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor. Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting Married.

    Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children. Last of all the babies. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it.. Hence the saying, "Don't throw the baby out with the Bath water!"

    Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw-piled high, with no wood underneath. It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the cats and other small animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof. When it rained it became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof... Hence the saying "It's raining cats and dogs."

    There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house. This posed a real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other droppings could mess up your nice clean bed. Hence, a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over the top afforded some protection. That's how canopy beds came into existence.

    The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had something other than dirt. Hence the saying, "Dirt poor." The wealthy had slate floors that would get slippery in the winter when wet, so they spread thresh (straw) on floor to help keep their footing. As the winter wore on, they added more thresh until, when you opened the door, it would all start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed in the entrance-way. Hence: a thresh hold.

    In those old days, they cooked in the kitchen with a big kettle that always hung over the fire.. Every day they lit the fire and added things to the pot. They ate mostly vegetables and did not get much meat. They would eat the stew for dinner, leaving leftovers in the pot to get cold overnight and then start over the next day. Sometimes stew had food in it that had been there for quite a while. Hence the rhyme: Peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas porridge in the pot nine days old. Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quite special. When visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show off. It was a sign of wealth that a man could, "bring home the bacon." They would cut off a little to share with guests and would all sit around and chew the fat.

    Those with money had plates made of pewter. Food with high acid content caused some of the lead to leach onto the food, causing lead poisoning death. This happened most often with tomatoes, so for the next 400 years or so, tomatoes were considered poisonous.

    Bread was divided according to status. Workers got the burnt bottom of the loaf, the family got the middle, and guests got the top, or the upper crust.

    Lead cups were used to drink ale or whisky. The combination would Sometimes knock the imbibers out for a couple of days. Someone walking along the road would take them for dead and prepare them for burial.. They were laid out on the kitchen table for a couple of days and the family would gather around and eat and drink and wait and see if they would wake up. Hence the custom of holding a wake.

    England is old and small and the local folks started running out of places to bury people. So they would dig up coffins and would take the bones to a bone-house, and reuse the grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they realized they had been burying people alive... So they would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffin and up through the ground and tie it to a bell. Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night (the graveyard shift.) to listen for the bell; thus, someone could be, saved by the bell or was considered a dead ringer.
    You come up with the most interesting stuff, CJ, this one particularly fascinating. So I printed it, gonna show it to my son the history major and see what he thinks of it. My DH is also a history buff and sends his appreciation. The closest thing to this I can get: as a child we visited my grandma in the country, she had no indoor plumbing. There was an outdoor well that a pump was used to fill a pail of water. There was an out house. And we took baths in a # 10 washtub. Well, that was us little ones. I have no idea what the grownups did. Sponge baths? I loved the bed, it was a very soft feather mattress that sunk way down in the middle, like being in a cocoon.

    Hey Neesaki, how's it going? My great grand father settled land in the Ok land rush and they still had dirt floors in the thirties. My great grandmother moved to town after great grand dad died and wouldn't go back to the farm. She didn't want to leave her linoleum floors.

    I remember when I was about three or four we went to visit friends in Missouri and all the kids lined up and got a bath. There were two to the tub at a time, and you got scrubbed shampooed and rinsed and you got out and had clean panites and a t shirt and sent to bed. I think those were the last times I slept though the night.

    Pastor told police parishioner might be poisoning her family

    "...She has since been charged with killing her husband, Mark Staudte, and 26-year-old son, Shaun Staudte. Prosecutors say she slowly poisoned them with antifreeze. Authorities also believe she poisoned another daughter, Sarah Staudte, who became very ill but survived...

    Greene County Prosecutor Dan Patterson said Mountjoy’s ruling on the motion to suppress evidence could come at any time, but he expects it will be fairly soon, given that Staudte is scheduled to go to trial in November..."

    Another Drama in Harper Lee’s Hometown

    "...Ms. Carter’s control of Ms. Lee’s affairs has become a polarizing issue that hangs over this town of about 6,300 residents. Praised by some as the dutiful protector of an aging friend, she is derided by others as a spiteful person who wields too much influence over a vulnerable client..."

    No third novel from Harper Lee, expert says after examining manuscript

    Questions about the contents of the box were raised in July after the Journal published an op-ed article by Tonja B. Carter, Lee's attorney..."

    Why Brilliant Books is offering refunds to customers who purchased Go Set A Watchman

    "...An independent bookstore located in Traverse City, Michigan, the bookstore released a statement shortly after Go Set A Watchman was released condemning its publication and offering refunds to customers who felt duped:

    We at Brilliant Books want to be sure that our customers are aware that Go Set A Watchman is not a sequel or prequel to To Kill A Mockingbird. Neither is it a new book. It is a first draft that was originally, and rightfully, rejected. The book, and some of the characters therein, are very much a product of this era in the South.

    We suggest you view this work as an academic insight rather than as a nice summer novel. This situation is comparable to James Joyce’s stunning work A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, and his original draft Stephen Hero. Hero was initially rejected, and Joyce reworked it into the classic Portrait. Hero was eventually released as an academic piece for scholars and fans—not as a new ‘Joyce novel’. We would have been delighted to see Go Set A Watchman receive a similar fate.

    It is disappointing and frankly shameful to see our noble industry parade and celebrate this as “Harper Lee’s New Novel”. This is pure exploitation of both literary fans and a beloved American classic (which we hope has not been irrevocably tainted.) We therefore encourage you to view Go Set A Watchman with intellectual curiosity and careful consideration; a rough beginning for a classic, but only that...."

    I watched the movie Hollywoodland and just had to research George Reeves:

    Hollywoodland (2006)
    The Quiet Desperation of Superman


    "A POSTER for the period drama “Hollywoodland” says that “dying in Hollywood can make you a legend.” George Reeves would have been flattered. A two-bit talent who is the film’s nominal reason for being, Mr. Reeves is best remembered, if at all, for two things: playing Superman on TV, and a bullet in the head. In 1959 someone blew his brains out in a house tucked between Sunset Boulevard and Mulholland Drive. The death was ruled a suicide,...

    Death of George Reeves 50 Years Later: Aftermath


    "The night of June 15, Reeves and Lemmon and a few other guests were drinking and partying at his home until after 1 AM. Reeves went up to bed, a shot rang out, and he was found dead, sprawled nude on his bed, with a bullet hole in his right temple. The death was ruled suicide, largely since the houseguests all said there was no other explanation, and there was no sign of an intruder or forced entry. The high alcohol content in Reeves' blood (.27, well above the intoxication point), combined with narcotics (he was taking painkillers for injuries in a car accident), made this plausible..."

    When God had made the earth and sky,
    The flowers and the trees,
    He made all the animals,
    The fish, the birds and bees.

    When at last He finished,
    Not one was quite the same.
    He said, "I'll walk this world of mine
    And give each one a name".

    He traveled far and wide,
    and everywhere He went,
    A little creature followed Him,
    Until it's strength was spent.

    When all were named upon the earth,
    In the sky and in the sea,
    A little creature said, "Dear Lord,
    There's not one left for me".

    Kindly, the Father said to him,
    "I've left you to the end".
    "I've turned my own name around
    And have called you Dog, my friend!"
    Be still and know that I am GOD. Psalm 46:10

    Ready for do-it-yourself weather predicting? Long before meteorologists had sophisticated technology to help them predict the weather, people made forecasts based on their observations of the sky, animals, and nature.

    Many of the traditional sayings they used, called proverbs, are accurate. Try out some old-fashioned forecasting—that still works today!

    The higher the clouds, the finer the weather.

    If you spot wispy, thin clouds up where jet airplanes fly, expect a spell of pleasant weather.

    Keep an eye, however, on the smaller puff clouds (cumulus), especially if it's in the morning or early afternoon. If the rounded tops of these clouds, which have flat bases, grow higher than the one cloud's width, then there's a chance of a thunderstorm forming.

    Clear Moon, frost soon.

    When the night sky is clear, Earth's surface cools rapidly—there is no cloud cover to keep the heat in. If the night is clear enough to see the Moon and the temperature drops enough, frost will form. Expect a chilly morning!

    When clouds appear like towers, the Earth is refreshed by frequent showers.

    When you spy large, white clouds that look like cauliflower or castles in the sky, there is probably lots of dynamic weather going on inside. Innocent clouds look like billowy cotton, not towers. If the clouds start to swell and take on a gray tint, they're probably turn into thunderstorms. Watch out!

    Rainbow in the morning gives you fair warning.

    A rainbow in the morning indicates that a shower is west of us and we will probably get it.

    Ring around the moon? Rain real soon.

    A ring around the moon usually indicates an advancing warm front, which means precipitation. Under those conditions, high, thin clouds get lower and thicker as they pass over the moon. Ice crystals are reflected by the moon's light, causing a halo to appear.

    Rain foretold, long last. Short notice, soon will pass.

    If you find yourself toting an umbrella around for days "just in case," rain will stick around for several hours when it finally comes. The gray overcast dominating the horizon means a large area is affected. Conversely, if you get caught in a surprise shower, it's likely to be short-lived.

    Red sky at night, sailors delight. Red sky in morning, sailors take warning.

    A reddish sunset means that the air is dusty and dry. Since weather in North American latitudes usually moves from west to east, a red sky at sunset means dry weather—good for sailing—is moving east. Conversely, a reddish sunrise means that dry air from the west has already passed over us on their way easy, clearing the way for a storm to move in.


    Weather Folklore of the Day
    .
    Heavy September rains bring drought.

    Last 7 Days

    When the elmen leaf is as big as a mouse's ear, Then to sow barley never fear. When the elmen leave is as big as an ox's eye, Than says I, "Hie, boys ! hie !"

    Frost occurring in the dark of the moon kills fruit buds and blossoms, but frost in the light of the moon will not.

    When a cold spell occurs in September and passes without a frost, a frost will not occur until the same time in October.

    Fair on September first,Fair for the month.

    As many days from the first new moon, so many times will it thaw during the winter.

    Expect rain if geese are especially noisy.

    If ants carry eggs to higher ground, expect rain.

    Observe the sky and see if these proverbs work for you!
