The Nishiyama Onsen Keiunkan in Yamanashi, Japan, holds the Guinness World Record for being the oldest hotel in the world. The hot-spring hotel sits at the foot of the stunning Akaishi Mountains and has been in operation since it was founded by Fujiwara Mahito in 705 A.D. Since then, it’s been in the hands of some 52 generations of the same family for more than 1,300 years.

I am 72 years old and have had a many mammograms done and was never concerned about them as there is no breast cancer in my family and they have all been fine. However, two years ago it came back troubled so had to have ultra sound and then a biopsy and eventually surgery for a radial scar. It was not cancerous which I am thankful for but was still an ordeal. Needless to say that after having my mammogram done Thursday the word BENIGN had a whole new meaning.

In 1908, New York tea merchant Thomas Sullivan sent samples of tea leaves to some of his customers in small silken bags. Many of the recipients assumed that the bags were supposed to be used in the same way as the metal infusers. So, they put the entire bag into the teapot, rather than emptying out its contents.
