Interesting Sites

    Ye Olde English Sayings - "Saved by the bell" derives from when our ancestors realised they were accidentally burying people alive and came up with the solution of tying a bell on a string to the 'dead' person's hand so if the 'deceased' revived enough to ring the bell, their relatives could rush for spades and dig him out! Interested in the origins of other phrases we take for granted, your curiosity will be satisfied here.
