Oboe student and Music Theory tutor.

comment From where does the superstition about Friday the thirteenth originate?
This is the version that I've encountered in history textbooks as well. I'll bring it up to 0 until we have a reference for the bogus call (if it IS bogus, damn those Victorians for making such convincing stories!)
comment How was beer production affected by the war during WW2?
Oh and rationing in the UK went on until about 1953 or so, so if there are fewer records during wartime, an interested party might find useful info immediately following the war.
