Old School memories… Nov. 8th is Dunce Day!
  Dunce Cap:  Duns Scotus of Duns, Scotland medieval
    scholar, believed that cone shaped hats increased
  learning potential.  Knowledge would flow from the
    point of the cap down into the head of the wearer,
     making that person smarter. This would motivate
          wearer to learn more, to be rid of the cap.
                                Worked  for  me!   😉
Pickled eggs?  Emoji     Place hard boiled eggs in a jar,
     add can of beets, cover with vinegar, wait 2 days. 
Preserves EGGS so that they can be eaten weeks later.
 Favorite snack in pubs, bars anywhere beer is served.  
       Remember them at Triangle Bar in Rockledge?  😉

Another CHS memory… French Fries and Mayonnaise.  
Even if we can’t be happy,
               we must always be cheerful.  – Irving Kristol 

Sent from my I-teepee,  CREW events are always CHEERFUL!

“Witch”  stems from the Old English word  wicce,
                    which means “wise woman.”  😉
Trick-or-Treating goes back 2,000 years to Ancient Celts.
They celebrated a pagan festival called     Samhain     on
November 1 that marked the end of the harvest season.
Night before they believed the dead returned as ghosts.
They left food and wine  on doorsteps to appease them.
8th century Christian church replaced Sahmain with ALL
SAINTS DAY or All Hallows of course became Halloween.
“Bitch”…  Now that is another story for another day! 😉
