Nothing Trivial About The Bard

A bit of cocktail trivia that was originally shared with me by my wonderful high school English Literature teacher, Ms. Merle Gould, way back in 1976. Today is famed dramatist William Shakespere's baptismal day. The Bard was born on April 23rd and baptized three days later on April 26th.

Just a little something to keep stowed away until you need to jumpstart a conversation that has come to a screeching halt, at the next social gathering you're attending. I'm always glad to be of service...

Hi Brett! I found your article while googling Merle Gould. She was wonderful, wasn't she? Hope you're enjoying the UK!
