One for the drinkers, Jack Daniels is a herbal remedy ;)

Original recipe for Jack Daniel's found in Welsh book of herbal remedies
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/foodanddrink/foodanddrinknews/9333815/Original-recipe-for-Jack-Daniels-found-in-Welsh-book-of-herbal-remedies.html

The history of Jack Daniel's is a mystery because the distillery's early records were destroyed in a courthouse fire.

The original recipe for legendary American whiskey Jack Daniel's has been discovered in a book of herbal remedies in Wales, it has been claimed.

Businessman Mark Evans, 54, was researching his family history when he discovered the recipe in a book of herbal remedies.

It was written in 1853 by his great-great grandmother who was called Daniels and was a local herbalist in Llanelli, South Wales.

Her brother-in-law left the Welsh town at about the same time to move to Lynchburg Tennessee where the Jack Daniel's distillery was opened three years later.

And the Jack Daniel's website states the founder of the distillery was from Wales.

Mr Evans says the ingredients in his great-great grandmother's recipe match what goes into the best selling whiskey in the world.

He said: "I'm pretty sure I've discovered the original recipe in great-great grannie's book.

"I was doing some family research, looking at photographs and things, and I wanted to look at the family bible.

"At the bottom of the bookcase was this book."

Mr Evans' grandmother Lillian Daniel's Probert, who is 97 and living in Llanelli, can recall her own grandmother using the book to make herbal remedies and ointments.

He said: "My great, great-grandmother wrote in the book in 1853, and Jack Daniel's is dated 1866, so it predates it.

"There is a link, because my grandmother's grandfather's brother - my great, great uncle - left for America and nobody ever heard from him after a couple of letters.

"That was during the time that Jack Daniel's was set up, but more important than that, he was called John 'Jack the Lad' Daniel's.

"We know he went to Lynchburg Tennessee and I'm pretty sure he used great-great grannie's recipe to start off the whiskey business."

The history of Jack Daniel's is a mystery because the distillery's early records were destroyed in a courthouse fire

A spokesman for the company said: "We know our founder was from Wales - we would love to see the book and the recipe."

Just when you thought it was safe to attend a sex marathon.....

Pensioner sues over sex marathon

A retired Polish teacher is suing the organisers of a world record sex session after they forgot to pixelate his face.

Leszek Szwerowski, 61, was spotted standing in line to take part in the contest organised as part of the World Sex Championships in 2003.

The contest involved three young women having sex with as many men as they could over the course of several hours.

But Szwerowski, from Warsaw, said the company behind the event, Pink-Press, reneged on promises to keep his identity secret and hide his face on film.

He said he was left embarrassed when his young nephew saw him on a later DVD of the event and told the rest of his family.

He said: I was told that the faces of the participants would be blurred on the computer on which the film was saved. But this was not the case.

Szwerowski is demanding 2,500 in damages.

Texas Family Consume Worm infested Salmon.
Texas family eats worm-covered salmon (http://www.wane.com/dpps/news/strange/texas-family-eats-worm-covered-salmon_4211266)
ROUND ROCK, Texas (KXAN) - The Pham family is trying to forget what happened at their large Father's Day celebration Saturday in Central Texas.

They prepared their own sushi with raw salmon purchased the same day at the H-E-B in Round Rock at State Highway 45 and Greenlawn Boulevard.

"My niece came in here, and she was eating one of the few pieces of sushi we had left on the plate and said, 'Ew, something feels funny,'" said Nichol Pham. "She pulled something out of her mouth, and it looked like a string."

When they looked closer, the string was moving. When they looked at the rest of the salmon, they could see more tiny worms covering the fish.

Pham said 23 people ate the salmon and felt sick the next day. Half of them were children, all cousins, ages 2 to 12.

"We've vomited, have diarrhea, stomach aching," said Pham. "My stomach is still aching today."

She said they went back to H-E-B that night to talk to a manager who offered a refund.

"We explained to him: 'We don't want a refund. We've already ingested this into our bodies,'" said Pham. "Common sense to me: You pull it off the shelf until you find out what's wrong with your fish."

Then she contacted the Williamson County Health Department. A spokesperson for the department told KXAN News they are investigating and will be looking into how the product was handled at the market and how it was handled after the purchase.

Carol Huntsberger, owner of Quality Seafood Market , said salmon carries a lot of parasites and worms --though they are rarely seen at a store.

There are only two ways to kill them: cooking the fish thoroughly or freezing raw salmon through a process mandated by law at minus 4 degrees for 168 hours, which is about seven days.

"It kills the parasites. It kills the worms, and it makes sure it's safe to eat," said Huntsberger.

H-E-B emailed the following statement:

"H-E-B is committed to absolutely safe food. We discourage the consumption of raw or undercooked seafood unless it is prepared and handled according to FDA specifications.

"We encourage all consumers to practice safe food handling when preparing sushi with raw fish. For additional information, refer to the FDA website."

Police in China are hunting a motorcyclist who was spotted pulling his toddler son behind him - in a drinks crate.
The tot - clearly too young to ride pillion - stares out from the box trustingly as he is towed along the road by a piece of rope.
The amazing scene was photographed by a passer-by in Xi'an, Shaanxi province, who posted it on social networking websites.
The photographer said: "When I first saw this bike coming down the road I thought he had a dog or something in the box and I thought, 'How cruel'.
"But when it got closer I could see it was a boy, no older than two and I was horrified."

Flying dong dings bucks party goer

THE best man at a wedding was left battered and bloodied after he was hit in the head by a fast-moving dildo.
The flying phallus left Darwin architect Jure Skumavc, 31, nursing a split forehead.
Mr Skumavc said he was injured by the bullet-shaped, pink, sex toy - measuring about 12cm in length - at a bucks party to farewell friend's Peter Rolih's bachelorhood.
Mr Skumavc was still sporting a scar on his forehead at Mr Rolih's wedding nearly three weeks after being dinged by the artificial dong. The darting dildo drama unfolded on December 28 in a rented two-bedroom unit in Brisbane.
Mr Skumavc said about eight other friends joined Mr Rolih for the party.
He said a scantily clad exotic dancer appeared after awhile and was soon performing her party trick: shooting dildos at the guests.


Mr Skumavc said those who had seen the infamous ping-pong ball scene in the Australian film The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert would know how the party trick worked.
He said the pink projectile was flying an impressive 7m across the room and looping about 2m high.
"It wasn't a strong shot (when it hit me in the head)," he said. "It probably just landed on an awkward sort of angle."
"She was shooting it through the room from one corner to the other," he said.
"Other people got it in their chest and knees. I was the only one bleeding. It was my turn and it landed straight on my forehead.
"She started apologising straight away but I just said it was fine ... then I touched my forehead and there was blood."
Mr Skumavc had difficulties describing the tearaway toy in detail.
"I don't have a massive experience with dildos," he said. The scars left by the offending object have since healed, but Mr Skumavc said the story was still very much alive.
"People keep asking how close my face was (to cause that sort of injury)," he said.
