Journal Entry 2 by wingLittleSuzwing at Edinburgh, Scotland United Kingdom on Tuesday, September 19, 2017

6 out of 10

Some really interesting bits but overall it went on a bit long for me and I got bored.

Think my favourite story was how the phrase "Everyone pools in xxx amount..." got started - with a bunch of Frenchmen throwing rocks at chickens!

I quite like the story behind "The buck stops here" as well.

Picked up at the meeting. I find etymology really interesting so I'm hoping this will be a fun read.
