Granny Smith likes juicy golden delicious water sports!

Did you ever wonder how barbiturates were developed? No? nor did I. But I’m sure that you’d like to know wouldn’t you?

Barbiturates were in fact developed using a mixture of apples and human urine by Adolf Von Baeyer back in the 1860s. They were named in part after a German waitress who provided the urine for their experimental production! I assume that her surname wasn’t Iturate. If she married a Mr Smith and had grandchildren I wonder if she became Granny Smith?

I've been on the planet for a more than half a century and I've lost all my hair but not my enthusiasm for life, my wife, reading and music! I started my first blog; With Just A Hint Of Mayhem in February 2009. In May 2011 I began two sister blogs to that first one; With Just A Hint Of Amelia and With Just A Hint Of Learning. A while later I also added the more random Stars In My Glasses to the family :-) Feel free to check them all out and let me know what you think!
