I was over at the in-laws last night and Moira had found a brilliant book up in the spare bedroom (aka Dalgetty Library). Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable is a completely addictive tome with loads of completely useless but interesting information.

What is the relationship between Virgins and Unicorns, Who is the King of the Fairies that lives in Kensington, and which group suffered from the punishment of immurring - all these questions and more answered.
