In contrast to popular belief Marie Antoinette never said "Let them eat cake"
And it was actually first in 1843 it was attributed to her by Alphonse Karr

The one who actually said it was the French Queen Maria Theresa who was Queen of France from 1660 to 1683. She was the wife of Louis XIV of France.
The line "Let them eat cake or to be more correct " Let them eat Brioche" was said in the 1660s over a 100 years before the French revolution.

Did you know that Paul Revere never finished that ride that come to be named after him. Paul Revere was stopped by a British patrol on his way to Concord. He never made it! In fact, he was riding with two other men, only one of whom succeeded in warning the Americans in Concord that the British were coming.
William Dawes also rode with Paul Revere that night. He, too, was stopped by a British patrol. He managed to escape, as did Dr. Samuel Prescott, the third rider.
Dawes, meanwhile, got lost in the dark and never made it to Concord.
Only Dr. Samuel Prescott reached Concord, where he delivered the warning, "The British are Coming!" And when the British came to Concord, the Americans were ready.

Also the warning was not " The British are coming" The warning was "The Regulars are coming" As the people in the colonies viewd themselves as British. It would have made no sense to say The British are coming, as they themselves were British.

Did you know that on the 20th of October 1902 Edward Marshuts shoot and killed Marian Nolan on O’Farrell Street in San Francisco. He shoot her twice with a 32 caliber Smith and Wesson.

Edward Marshuts than shoot himself so they could be toghter in the afterlife.

The reason that Edward killed Marian was that she was not interested in him. And he was obsessed with her.

Marian Nolan is best known for being the model for the California Venus that was made in 1895.

0 is the only number that can not be represented by Roman Numerals.

(This comes from the Steve Wright Radio Show this afternoon).

Also from Mr Wright's Factoids. Sting wrote Every Breath You Take on the same table that Ian Fleming wrote his James Bond books-at Goldeneye in Jamaica.

Did you know...
The US Navy once had a warship named after an enemy commander. USS Hood was named after Mount Hood, which was in turn named after British Admiral Samuel Hood.

Hood was one of the greatest naval commanders of his day, a mentor to Nelson, and fought at the battle of Chesapeake Bay. As Hood did not have seniority, he was not in overall command during the battle. Had he been, the battle (and therefore the course of the American Revolution), might have had a different outcome.

Actress Sally Field had her ancestry traced by the researches at Finding Your Roots and found out that not only did her family arrive on the Mayflower the captain of the ship was her lineal grandfather. He was elected the first governor and was directly responsible for organizing the feast with the natives which became Thanksgiving.

Her family story contains some other fascinating twists and turns. PBS has put the episode online : http://www.pbs.org/weta/finding-your...e-family-tree/

Did you know that Kenneth Grahame who wrote The Wind in the Willows was once shot at three times in his time working at the Bank of England. Blimey Ken, the book wasn't that bad!

Did you know...

The Argentinian football team River Plate is unusual in that they have an English name; they are actually called River Plate (or, to their fans, simply "River") not Rio de la Plata as the place is called in Spanish.

They apparently got their name from some mysterious crates that were being unloaded at a wharf, cryptically (to Spanish speakers) labelled "River Plate".

I have an Argentinian friend who is a big fan (she cutely pronounces it "Ree-ver"), and she was thoroughly confused when I took her to the Auckland War Memorial Museum. Engraved on the outside of the building are the names of all the battles of the 1st and 2nd World Wars New Zealand fought in, including "River Plate".
