  1. Hi There,

    I guess there are some wrng information in that “Did you know” list ^^

    – There are no mosquitoes in France: Wrong! I live there so I know ^^

    – One punishment for an adulterous wife in medieval France is to make her chase a chicken through the town, naked: Well say true, but this was a european practice, there are traces of this type of punischment written down from Ireland to Hungary and Estonia (so kind of the half European Continen); whether, not only the French were bad 😛

    Anyway, some interesting facts in there!

    Greetings from France

  2. Doctors use that illegible calligraphy because in ancient times it was a sort of secret code between them and apothecaries (old pharmacists), because the latter needed to prepare what was called a galenic preparation, it means a medicine prepared by the recipe provided both by the doctor and the apothecary. The ingredients had usually strange origins and need to be combined in specific manners. Patients must not know about that preparation because they could have been frightened. And, if they knew that, they would have probably done it themselves, and both doctors and apothecaries would not have been granted patients. This is the same that happens for us lawyers. Some things must be secret for the greater good!

    Sorry for the lesson and for my grammatical errors (I’m Italian!). My family is full of doctors and that was the first question I asked them. I like that story!

  3. I’m still learning from you, but I’m making my way to the top as well. I absolutely enjoy reading everything that is posted on your blog.Keep the stories coming. I loved it

  4. Im impressed. I dont think Ive met anyone who knows as much about this subject as you do. Youre truly well informed and very intelligent. You wrote something that people could understand and made the subject intriguing for everyone. Really, great blog youve got here.

  5. Quite a beautiful website. I built mine and i was looking for some design ideas and your website gave me some. Did you develop the website alone?

  6. “When a person cries of happiness , the first drop of tear comes from his right eye . If it is from his left eye,then he is in pain .”
    definitely not true. unless it’s true for everyone else and i’m just a freak
