Friday Fun Fact:  According to the UK-based Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena, Windsor Castle in Britain has more than its fair share of ghosts, including King Henry VIII, Queen Elizabeth I, King Charles I, and King George III (“Mad” King George). King Henry supposedly haunts the cloisters near the Deanery with ghostly groans and the sound of dragging footsteps.

This day in History:  1302 – The characters Romeo and Juliet were married this day according to William Shakespeare. Today is also the day in 1969 when Levi-Strauss started selling bell-bottomed jeans.  Just so you know.

Today’s Trivia Question:  Perhaps you’ve heard this warning before, but I’m sure it bears repeating.  If you eat the Papadalupapadipu plant, it will cure the common cold in a man.  However, the warning is for women – if women eat the plant, they will grow a mustache and in two weeks suffer a cold relapse.  Who gave this warning?  (Email [email protected] with your answer and be sure to include your name, company, city and time zone.
