It was the accepted
practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that

for a month after the wedding,

the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with
all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month, which we know today as the honeymoon.

YOU
KNOW YOU ARE LIVING IN 2011 when...

1. You accidentally
enter your PIN on the microwave.


3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to

reach your family of three.

4. You e-mail and text the
person who works at the desk next to you.

5. Your reason for
not staying in touch with friends and family is that they
don't have e-mail or text addresses.


7. Every commercial on television has a web

site at the bottom of the screen

8. Leaving the house without your cell phone,

which you didn't even have the first
20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause

for panic and you turn around to go and get it.

12 You're reading
this and nodding and laughing.

You missed out points 9, 10 and 11 on your 12 point checklist.....thus spoiling the joke.:shake:

Not only that, but you'll find that Mead is considered a wine, not a beer.

One thousand IS correct as the smallest integer with an 'A' in the spelling, as the 'and' in other smaller numbers is still considered a word.

Santa Claus wears red because of Coca-Cola. His coat was green before Coca-Cola changed it, to use him as an advertising ploy.

...in my house Mead is considered a Mead and not a beer or a wine. Beer is Adnams, St Austell Tribute or Rock Doombar, wine is whatever she bought at Tesco's today!!
Happy Christmas:tup:

As much as mead is a drink in it's own right, you'll find that the majority of mead sold in England is sold by wineries. Which is why it is often considered to be on the wine side of drinks.

Now my favourite mead would have to be Spiced Mead by Lurgashall Winery, which I can happily drink by the pint. Mind you I do like to blend Lurgashall's Whisky Mead with a good strong London Porter:drunk:

If the horse has all four legs in the air, it means the sculptor was a very clever bugger indeed...

According to QI this is an urban myth ... and if Stephen Fry said it, it must be true!
