Did you know No: 20



Hello everyone here I am on a cold Monday afternoon getting around to writing a post and I have some good news both my parents have been discharged from hospital, this is such good news for all of us.

So this Monday I am doing Did You Know Monday again, so here are this weeks facts that you may or may not already know.

Popeye originally got his strength from garlic not spinach
