Daffy's Elixir

Daffy's Elixir was a name used by several patent medicines from the 17th to the 19th century. The original tonic was reputed to have been invented in 1647 by clergyman Thomas Daffy, who named it Elixir Salutis—"Elixir of Salvation"—and promoted it as a panacea. It was later imitated and remained a popular cure-all in the UK and later the US. Chemical analysis of an early recipe for Daffy's Elixir showed it to be a laxative that was made mostly from what?

I love the Belle Époque & Art Nouveau. I could go an absinthe right now!

Such a truly beautiful era!

Topic: scarecrow
Posted: Wednesday, August 28, 2019 12:25:25 PM
When my sister was a kid (child), she had a kid (baby goat). It used to get upset if it was left alone, so my sister made a scarecrow & sat it in the rocking chair on the verandah. She tied one end of a rope to the rocking chair & put the other end through her bedroom window. Whenever the kid started to bleat because it was left alone, my sister tugged the rope from her bed. It worked! When the scarecrow in the rocking chair started rocking, the kid shut up because it thought someone was there.

I read a children's version of The Epic of Gilgamesh when I was young & I read a more accurate translation as an adult. I loved it!

In Australia, Father's Day is in September, usually on my brother's birthday, which is also his wedding anniversary. It's not as big as Mother's Day here. We always have a lot of tv ads from the big hardware chains in the lead up to Father's Day.
