Did you know Monday

So here we are at Monday, I have been out this morning doing some things for mum and going to the chemist to pick up medications that I need for the week.

I had a baked lunch here yesterday with Kathy, Jessica and Summer and Leo and of course Tim who was off.

Anyway since it is Monday it is did you know day

Californian Frank Epperson invented the ice lolly or lollypop in 1905, when he was 11 years old. He left a glass of soda or pop and a stirrer outside overnight and in the morning discovered them frozen together.


A pound of crisps cost about 200 time more than a pound of potatoes

We call them popsicles and chips, but I knew exactly what you meant. I didn't know either of the facts, though. Now I have more trivia to add to my brain bank :)

We call them ice blocks and chips but I knew what was meant too, I like to enlighten people to useless facts

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

Whatever we call them still a wow factor

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

Yeah I bet he did

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

Chemist or pharmacy doesn't matter what we call the place we get our meds from just that we can

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

Well now you do but did you need to know these facts, I doubt it

Nancy Chan said...

Thanks for the sharing the facts. I would know if you didn't share.

I never knew that about the origins of the lollypop. Learned something new today!

Perhaps the day will come along when someone says to me, I will give you a million dollars if you can tell me . . . and the question will be about one of your facts. Then I'll share the million dollars with you.
