Yes, I've watched him before and he's very good. My true passion is history, so I love websites like this. If you've never been to Williamsburg, you really need to go. I loved it so much I applies for an apprenticeship there at one time. Just great stuff.
Good post

Never been to Williamsburg, but plan to visit one day. I'm studying the traditional methods of food preservation (might come in handy some day).

Thanks, Freeranger.

There was a time when people used rose water because vanilla hadn't been invented yet. They also had to watch television by candlelight because they didn't have electric lights yet.

Cars originally ran on booze before gasoline was invented. John D. Rockefeller sponsored the teetotal movement to outlaw alcohol and force people to buy gas from his company, Standard Oil.
