This informative post will be posted on Saturday along with my usual writing.  We can all appreciate some of the lesser known facts from around the world.

It takes approximately six to eight hundred grapes to produce one bottle of wine.

Joe Sheridan was closing up his restaurant at Ireland’s Foynes Airport in 1945 when bad weather forced a transatlantic flight to turn around and come back.  Realizing that the plane’s passengers would be tired and irritable, Sheridan stayed late and greeted them with coffee that had been mixed with a little sugar, spiked with a shot of Irish whiskey, and topped with freshly whipped cream.  When asked if what they were drinking was Brazilian coffee, Sheridan replied, “No.  It’s Irish coffee.”  The name stuck.

These facts have been discovered in I NEVER KNEW THAT by David Hoffman (2009).
