Photo of the day

Well, this morning Bill W. told this story of the origin of the bagel. (Who knew such creativity lurked within?) Back in ancient Greece, there was an apothecary named Bagelus. A customer came to Bagelus' shop seeking treatment for gout of the big toe. Bagelus had the idea of wrapping the affected toe in soft dough, and then having his patient sit in the warm sun. The dough baked in the sunshine, and though a cure for gout was not found, a tasty breakfast food was discovered. As Bill would say, alas, the rest is history.
