3 of the Things I Did Not Know

A term, a source and a skill - 3 things I didn't know last week and now do!

a) toxophilite - a student or lover of archery

b) "comet" comes from the Greek, meaning "long-haired star"

c) Fred Astaire was self-conscious about his enormous hands and often danced with them half-folded to make them look smaller - that's what I did know - but what I didn't know was just what he could DO with those hands ...

Gotta love learning stuff!

Smiling as I read and listen to this! Where DO you find all these great video clips? And can we have some Danny Kaye too? :-)

Toxophily, and carry a big stick. (With a longbow, you can't help it.)

Boom-boom! Good one, Sue!
