Thread Name: Meaning/Last verse, Do Re Mi
Subject: RE: Guthries Do Re Mi
I just did what Joe suggested - Will Bakker's first post was 24th January 1999. Way back in the last century. Ancient times for a Mudcattter.

But the question Will asked set me thinking - which came first as a word for money, "dough" or "bread"? And when? (And if the answer is "dough", does that come from anything else, like the "d" which was the abbreviation for the old penny in England, which I believe stood for denarius?)
