And The Times They Are A Hot Links

Sunday, 29 April 2018

A long forgotten grade-school rhyme popped into my head recently and here it is.

Mary had a little watch.
She swallowed it one day,
So Mary took a Feen-A-Mint
To pass the time away.

The time, it did not pass;
So if you want to know what time it is,
Just look up Mary’s little brother.
He’s got a watch.

Mallows have been used as a food staple for thousands of years. The common name for Althaea officinalis is “Marsh Mallow” and it has medicinal properties.
