oh well, i got that almost entirely wrong:
Grog was a mixture of rum and water. It was served as a ration in the United States Navy until September 1, 1862, and in the Royal Navy until 1970.
Been away for a while (3, 4 years maybe?!).
Now an English teach (who still can't spell).
Still loving being a mum, best thing ever, so much so that number 2's on it's way (oh & I got married last year!).
