Ever get what you thought was a really great idea for a piece, start writing it... then totally FORGET what the real gist was? I JUST DID!


Needless to say, this is now short and sweet.......





AN APPLE A DAY…

Copyright: October 4, 2007 - Tom Hyland


…keeps the Doctor away! - is an old adage pertaining to Health. Keeps one REGULAR!

Satan, as the snake tempts Eve. Eve NAGS Adam to take a Bite! He goes for it! Man is exposed to Knowledge - And it has been downhill ever since! BECAUSE OF EVE…

The Forbidden Fruit - used in many instances in Religious Symbology.

SEE: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_%28symbolism%29

BONK! Newton’s noggin discovers the Law of Gravity! He formulates that gravity is what keeps the Moon in orbit around the Earth.

Road APPLES! A nickname in the early nineteen hundreds for horse manure! Cute, huh?

Motherhood and APPLE pie! Two items deemed almost Sacred by Americans. Both sweeter smelling than the aforementioned!

MacIntosh - Granny Smith - Winesap - Red Delicious… - some names of varieties of this delightful Fruit.

Tomatoes were once called “Love Apples.” Potatoes were called “Earth Apples.”

Johnny Appleseed - the legendary name given to John Chapman, who introduced the apple to several states, namely: Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois.

Bobbing for apples is an old favorite game, especially on Halloween.

According to Swiss folklore, William Tell once shot an apple off his son’s head with his crossbow.

In the Fairytale, Snow White, a witch puts her into a deathly coma using a poisonous apple.

And, of course, the nickname for New York City, is “THE BIG APPLE.”

“ONE rotten apple spoils the barrel!” - an old admonition still applies today.

Comparing apples and oranges - refers to comparing two dissimilar items, or things.

And today, right now, or rather tonight, here I am, hunting and pecking away on my little keyboard of my MAC… APPLE LAPTOP iBookG4.


SO, there you have it, a quick and painless little article about just a few things affected still in our world today, in the year 2007, about the lowly fruit from Genesis, from The Garden of Eden,
The APPLE!

CRUNCH - MUNCH… MMMM… GOOD!



Ain’t that just the PITS? SEEDS?

Food for thought?
