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

which we know today as the honeymoon.

"Mind your pints and quarts, and settle down." It's where we get the
phrase "mind your P's and Q's"


Many years ago in England, pub frequenters had a whistle baked into the
