Welll hear dis joke nah..3 yrs ago was the 1st time i planted squash ( n by ‘i’ i mean hubby as-he does ALL d yeard work..hehehe

well i am a farmer’s  daughter but i never knew abt manual pollination.  So all d squash were turning yellow n  they dried up.  Then a cuz came late aug n told me  that i have to ‘marry’ the male n female flowers.  I had no idea abt man n woman flowers..omg! ..but-by then it  was late summer so i didnt get any squash that yrs.

last yr we were doing the ‘marry’ or ‘kiss; thing as people suggested..then a gf f mine told me  to try the qtips because sometimes u dont get enough male flowers to pollinate the female

btw me guh ga  fuh ask me hubby dat qwestion

Hmmm well i. Only knew abt stiut after i had my baby in 1987..whn it was forced down my throat..warm with salt…

I saw my mother use small amount of brandy with breast milk ,given to my younger siblings when they were babies to put them to sleep when they cried too much.

Probably i was given the same ,had enough then so when grown up not a fan of liquor .

Yeah i heard abt moms or grandparents giving lil babies(i doubt they did this with new born)  a few drops of brandy to the baby bottle of milk (not breast milk..) at nights to make them sleep soundly!

That is nothing compared to a mother drinking 2  bit stoute oer day..n eso newborn , boy that is alot of likka in d breast milk!!
