Did you know that a girl who drops the comb as she is doing her hair is doomed to disappointment in love…but that she may “take the cuss off” by counting backwards from ten as she retrieves the comb?
Did you know that an ordinary mud turtle contains seven different kinds of meat – pork, beef, mutton, venison, chicken, duck, and fish? But that dispite this belief, hillmen rarely eat turtles?
