“It sloweth age, it strengtheneth youth,it helpeth digestion,it abandoneth melancholie, it relisheth the heart, it lighteneth the mind, it quickenth the spirits, it keepeth and preserveth the head from whirling, the eyes from dazzling, the tongue from lisping, the mouth from snaffling, the teeth from chattering and the throat from rattling; it keepeth the stomach from wambling, the heart from swelling, the hands from shivering, the sinews from shrinking, the veins from crumbling, the bones from aching,and the marrow from soaking.
copied by Joseph Lyons from a 16th Century manuscript
I am off to keepeth the stomach from wambling at the South African Food & Wine Bloggers Indaba in Cape Town. See you all on Monday. Those of you on Twitter can follow us on the hashtag #FBI2011.
Have a wonderful weekend, my friends. I know mine will be memorable.
