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.

In 1866, Claude Monet, plagued by debt, burned two hundred of his own paintings to prevent them from being seized by creditors.

When Richard Reynolds started manufacturing his eponymous aluminum foil, it wasn’t to package and store food.  He made it for his uncle, cigarette magnate R. J. Reynolds, who was in need of a way to wrap tobacco and keep it fresh.

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