Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179




I want this to be information one just usually doesn’t hear.  If you have I would like to know if you haven’t all the better you’ve learned something today.  With that being said here is the information for you to consider today.


Queen Mary 1 of England and Ireland 1516-1558) was a Catholic who had Protestants tortured and killed.  Her actions inspired the nickname Bloody Mary, which in turn inspired the cocktail.  I guess that’s why it’s red.  The last one for today is:  in 1975 and 1976, two brothers were killed.  The first was riding a motorcycle when he was struck and killed by a taxi.  Approximately one year later the brother was riding the same motorcycle when he was struck and killed.  No big deal right?  However the second brother was killed after being struck by the same taxi and the same driver.  Even stranger the taxi had the same passenger on the second strike as he did on the first.  That should be a record for sure. 


Now go out and tell the world of your new found knowledge.  Smile it will make people wonder what you’ve been up to.  Join us tomorrow for another journey into the wonderful world of Wordsmith.  Click on the link below.  Who knows you may learn something along the way and some of the words may even bring a smile to your face.

Good morning James. Pretty depressing stories today. The taxi and motorcycle thing is so bizarre and very peculiar.

Hi James,

Facts are often more true when told. Like this story, this is just crazy. I have nothing. What are the odds?

Have a great day watching the Super Bowl in Rogers my friend.

Best, Clint McKie

Ok with the bloody mary but what a story on the two brothers!  The odds must be astronomical.  Thanks James.

I knew about the origin of hte Bloody Mary. In fact, there is a famous Bloody Mary's Restaurant and Bar in Bora Bora but it was closed when we were there. Rats!!

James, I have read much history on the Tudors. One of my favorite places I have ever visited was Henry VIII's Hampton Court Palace. Its gardens were so beautiful.
