If you read my story, you’ll know that I started my blog after a life changing accident that confined me to bed for a year.  With free time and my laptop I started looking up the answers to some of the off the wall questions that crossed my mind.

I’ve always liked to know where things, words, phrases and stuff like come from, so I went looking and I found some unexpected stuff that I’m now sharing with you.

The following content is not mine, it is a compilation of different websites and authors all of which are listed in this article. For space purposes I have only listed the words I found most interesting and/or unexpected.
