        We can thank Shakespeare for coining many phrases we still use today and literally 100's of words he invented!



        Here are just some of the phrases:

        All that glitters is not gold

        Bated breath

        Catch a cold

        Dead as a doornail

        Eaten me out of house and home

        Elbow room

        For goodness' sake

        Heart of gold

        In a pickle

        In my heart of hearts

        Kill with kindness

        Love is blind

        Not slept one wink

        Seen better days

        Sick at heart

        Too much of a good thing

        Wild-goose chase

        I think i have used all of these at one time or another how about you?

        Very interesting. Catch a cold was one? What would we do without Shakespeare? I have used most of them at some point.

        I've used most of them too. "The be all and end all" is one I've used many times too but I had no idea these were Shakespeare.

        I didn't either blue. This is only a small part of the phrases he coined. He also has a ton of words he introduced. I'll have to look them up too and post them.

        Ok here is another interesting fact that may have you putting your tooth brush in a new spot in your bathroom.



        When a toilet flushes the water can spray out of the bowl up to 6 feet spreading water droplets full of bacteria where ever it lands.

        So if you have your tooth brush out in the open chances are these nasty little droplets are landing on it and you are brushing your teeth with it.

        To avoid it either shut the lid on your toilet before flushing or put it inside your medicine cabinet!

        I will just drop this here:


        Research by the University of Arizona last year found the average office desktop harboured 400 times more bacteria than the average office toilet seat.
        They also found that, compared to men, on average women have three to four times the amount of germs in, on and around their work area.

        Yep, I knew about that one. It's never been out because of that very fact. Made me sick when I first about the toilet spray.

        Well, I guess it's blacklight time, right? At least that's how they check for germs on the TV...
