Story: Daisy's Wine

I don't drink, but after a family event, Daisy wanted to drink wine after tasting some from what her cousins had gotten. I was rather curious to see what Daisy was like with wine in her system, so I agreed. I poured about two glasses, waited awhile, but Daisy seemed about the same. I kept asking her if she wanted more and she told me that she did. Once she was "drunk", things didn't seem too different, she was just far more calm than usual. I was starting to think she had a pretty good tolerance until about an hour later when she vomited in the toilet. Now if she wants wine, she can only have two glasses at best.   

Fact of the Day: Lambert Simnel

Lambert Simnel was a boy who was picked by a priest named Richard Simon to pretend to be King Edward IV's nephew Edward Plantagenet, 17th Earl of Warwick. If this had been true, he would have been a serious rival to the throne on the Yorkist side of the War of the Roses and serious threat to the Tudor king Henry VII. This charade was eventually suppressed, since Simon was a priest he was not killed but rather imprisoned. King Henry VII most likely saw Simnel as a pawn too young to realize what he was doing, and had him pardoned then he was given a job by the royal household.

Things I Hate: Kid Cobra (Arms)

 Despite looking like one of the coolest characters in Arms, he's not that great.

Photo: Hug From Mickey Mouse at Disney World

I was really shocked to see this photo, my niece Little K HATES "big people" along with mascots and I've seen her scream bloody murder at the big giant rat at Chuck E. Cheese birthday party. She must really like Mickey Mouse.  

Fact of the Day: Many Doctors
