Was Winston Churchill saved from drowning while a youth by Scottish farmer whose own son would discover penicillin which would be used to save the the great leader’s life again?

Um, no.

Churchill, who grew up in Ireland, was never saved by a Scottish farmer. His life was, however, saved by an antibiotic during World War II.  It was not penicillin, though, but a sulphonamide.

But it was reported as penicillin. Sulphonamides were a German discovery.

There are five basics tastes. Sweet, sour, salty and bitter are the ones easy to guess. The fifth? It’s umami. It’s a Japanese word and is used to describe the taste of glutamic acid which provides a pleasant “meaty” flavor to food.

So what does green have to do with Saint Patrick? It’s the color of the shamrock that he used to explain the Holy Trinity.

And of course spring, which is but three days away, this year.

A shamrock, by the way, is a sprig of clover.
