Default From an old Book--1913

While doing a bit of web surfing this morning I found an odd book with some nice info about bananas.

I thought that it would be appropriate for the site. The center paragraph of of page 87 seems to hit home.

Sorry for the odd cut and paste, but it was the only way that I could get it here. Remember its from 1913, that was 95 years ago, so a few things are a bit off kilter.

Nothing, I like Simply Bananas better.

Besides, I tire of being a hat.
