The death of Mickey Rooney,

What a lifetime of talent one of the last of the true great film entertainers and an end of an era. In my lifetime from childhood on wards it seemed that Mickey Rooney had always been around not only from the Andy Hardy musicals with Judy Garland and International Velvet with Elizabeth Taylor, but appearances in films in his older years. As far as I was concerned he was always the everlasting energetic little Mickey Rooney, that's how I saw him despite his 93 years! Surprisingly my sons reaction was also one of shock such was the impact of his talent and persona on them, they hadn't bargained for the fact that he could possibly go one day as unrealistic as it may seem but he had such an enduring quality as well as a great talent. He will be missed.

Thanks for all the entertainment, RIP Mickey.

"Invention of the concentration camp by England during the Boer war."

Sorry Richard we cannot claim that or accept the blame for that. Both the Spanish (Cuba October 1896 - Gen. Valeriano Weyler - over 300,000 dead) and the USA (1899 in The Philippines - General Franklin Bell - ~298,000 dead) employed the use of "concentration camps" before we did. The British version arrived shortly after late in November 1900 - General Kitchener - ~26,000 Boer dead and ~14,000 native Africans {During the same time ~15,000 British & Empire Soldiers died in their camps} - But there again neither the Spanish or the US Army had any equivalent of Emily Hobhouse, or the Fawcett Commission to raise British public awareness of conditions in the camps, recommendations from the latter meant that a duty of care and protection was imposed on the British Military authorities in charge of the camps and mortality rates inside the camps were reduced to less than those in most towns in England.

scotland and sweedish turnips 

"The turnip (Brassica rapa var. rapa) was cultivated since ancient times, however the Swedish Turnip ( Brassica napus var. napobrassica) was first documented in the 17th century. The Swedish turnip is not simply a variety of turnip, but a complicated hybrid of a turnip and cabbage.
As determined experimentally by the Korean botanist Woo Jang-choon in the 1930's, as the number of chromosomes differs between these two species, in order to produce a fertile hybrid between a turnip and a cabbage the chromosome content in any fertile progeny must be doubled. So a cabbage has 18 chromosomes, the  turnip has 20, but the Swedish turnip has 38 chromosomes. This also means that the new hybrid is unable to cross breed easily with its parents.
 Thus, the Swedish turnip is a turnipy cabbage or a cabbagey turnip, combining traits from both parents. While Woo delibrately created these hybrids, it seems that the Swedish turnip was created serendipitously, prehaps no earlier then the 16th century.

This song was written about a drink Buffett discovered at Lung's Cocina del Sur restaurant on Anderson Lane in Austin, Texas, and the first huge surge of tourists who descended on Key West, Florida around that time; he wrote most of the song that night in Austin and finished it while spending time in Key West. In the United States "Margaritaville" reached #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and went to #1 on the Easy Listening chart,[also peaking at #13 on the Hot Country Songs chart. Still popular, it remains Buffett's highest charting solo single."

On this day in 1944, Russian forces led by Marshal Fedor Tolbukhin attack the German army in an attempt to win back Crimea, in the southern Ukraine, occupied by the Axis power. The attack would result in the breaking of German defensive lines in just four days, eventually sending the Germans retreating.

Crimea was the territorial plaything of many great powers, from the Ottoman Turks to the Russia of Ivan III. It had declared its independence in 1918 but was occupied again by Germany in 1941. It was "liberated" by the Russians, only to find itself trapped within the greater Soviet Union. It declared itselc an independent republic in the 1990's.

Actually, the Buddhist tradition that celebrates his birthday on April 8 originally placed his birth in the 11th century B.C., and it was not until the modern era that scholars determined that he was more likely born in the sixth century B.C., and possibly in May rather than April.

"Skinner's Raisin Bran" was the first brand on the market, introduced in the United States in 1936 and trademarked. In 1942 Kelloggs began to produce a similar named product. A court resulted over the use of the term in 1944. The courts ruled that the name "Raisin-BRAN" could not be used as a trade-mark, because: "A name which is merely descriptive of the ingredients, qualities or characteristics of an article of trade cannot be appropriated as a trademark and the exclusive use of it afforded legal protection. The use of a similar name by another to truthfully describe his own product does not constitute a legal or moral wrong, even if its effect be to cause the public to mistake the origin or ownership of the product."
