YOU LEARN SOMETHING NEW EVERYDAY

I never knew before today that the red and white barber pole has it origins in blood.
Barbers were the first surgeons. Shave and a hair cut and get your appendix removed.

So they would hang their bloody white surgical cloths outside on a pole to dry.From that simple beginning came the standard pole symbol of a barber shop.

Now aren't you glad you know that? If not, I could rant on and on about technology.

Bye For Now,

Bill
