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.

The famous two-toned French manicure isn’t really French at all.  Hollywood makeup artist Jeff Pink got the idea from Parisian runway models, who simply rubbed a white pencil beneath their unpolished fingernail tips to give them a clean, natural look.

Parcheesi can be traced back to sixteenth-century India, when bored factory workers realized that a piece of cloth with a unique pattern could be turned into a game that would help pass time.

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