Ask The History Doc: Why are the French called Frogs? Why are the French called frogs? Is it because they like to eat frog legs? Dear Not, Well, for a change the History Doctor gets a chance to answer a genuinely presented question! Let's not let this start a trend. I am happy to report that I have not one but several answers to this particular question, in spite of the fact that the inquiry is not, strictly speaking, of an historical nature. But we will let that pass, because the answer is at least potentially related to history. I must point out that I had to do some research on the net to come up with this information, and I am therefore indebted to Cecile Charron for her important contribution to human understanding. So here we go! For quite a long time, apparently, the French have

Would you willingly move into a neighborhood with no food source nearby? Well, yeah, maybe you would but you have a car and about twenty take-out apps on your phone; silverfish donвt. They canвt afford to be picky about their locale в if thereвs food, theyвll set up shop. The issue with this is that silverfish kind of have a taste for everything, or at least some of the weirder stuff you keep at home. Starting with the more normal: they like to feed on stuff that is very high in sugars and starch, which means they can often find their way into your pantry to munch on the cereals, oats, flour and even adhesives and glues that you might have stored away.

Why Do We Pray in Jesusв Name? By Rick Warren в November 17, 2017 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it (John 14:13-14 NIV). The Bible says, And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it (John 14:13-14 NIV). God wants to answer your prayers, but he also wants you to ask in Jesus name. What is so special about Jesus name? Honestly, for a long time, I had no idea. I d hear everybody end prayers with, In Jesus name. Amen. I thought maybe it was a signal that the prayer was about to end, like a spiritual sign-off 10-4, good buddy or the way the great 20 Century news anchor Walter

Dunkirk, and the evacuation associated with the troops trapped on Dunkirk, was called a БmiracleБ by Winston Churchill. As the Wehrmacht swept through western Europe in the spring of 1940, using Blitzkrieg, both the French and British armies could not stop the onslaught. For the people in western Europe, World War Two was about to start for real. The БPhoney WarБ was now over. The advancing German Army trapped the British and French armies on the beaches around Dunkirk. 330,000 men were trapped here and they were a sitting target for the Germans. Admiral Ramsey, based in Dover, formulated Operation Dynamo to get off of the beaches as many men as was possible. The British troops, led by Lord John Gort, were professional soldiers from the British Expeditionary Force; trained men that we
What Is It? An impacted tooth is a tooth that gets blocked as it is pushing through the gum into your mouth (erupting). Wisdom teeth often are impacted. Wisdom teeth usually begin to come in between the ages of 17 and 21. Dentists call these teeth third molars. They may become impacted because there's not enough room in your mouth for them. A wisdom tooth also might be trying to come in sideways. Or, it might be tilted in your jaw. An impacted tooth can be painless. You may not even realize it's there. However, when an impacted wisdom tooth tries to come in, the flap of gum on top of it can become infected and swollen. This can hurt. You might even feel pain in nearby teeth, or in the ear on that side of your face. An impacted tooth can lead to an infection called pericoronitis. If
Well, but still, reading the comments, it kind of confusing which is true. In my opinion though, I think spiting it out is better because more are saying it, BUT I am not sure that is safe for you to spit it out OR to swallow it!
