Facts..............................

 Hello world, here we are at another Monday and this week things are returning to a new normal for me. Well here are some facts.

Jeremy Bentham, a British philosopher who died in 1832, left his entire estate to the London Hospital provided that his body be allowed to preside over its board meetings.

His skeleton was clothed and fitted with a wax mask of his face, it was present at the meeting for 92 years.

Strawberries have more vitamin C in them than oranges.

Ketchup is excellent for cleaning brass.

The first police force was established in Paris in 1667
