Australia Day 2012


Here is something interesting about spuds that you may not have heard. 


In the olden days, potatoes carried in a pocket were widely thought a cure for rheumatism, especially if the taters had been stolen. As the spud dries and hardens, it supposedly draws from the sufferer uric acid from the body which is the root of the pain.


So for all of us who are feeling a few aches and pains, perhaps it is worth putting a spud in our pocket......?
