Greetings Infomaniacs,

Congratulations to "Bruce D Drury" who won this week's "Mind Scrambler". Here was the scrambler:

Wheresoever I may be,
Every man must follow me;
He must go where I may lead,
Though it be to change his creed.
Though I vary in my size,
I am still beneath your eyes;
and though you may go astray,
I must ever lead the way.
Every creature in the land,
Has me close at his command,
For I lead to things unseen,
By my properties so keen.

What am I?

ANSWER: Your nose.

Enjoy!

RANDOM TIDBITS

Cheddar, England, a village in the southwestern county of Somerset, is home to the famous geological site Cheddar Gorge. Beginning in the 16th century, visitors to Cheddar Gorge tasted cheese at local inns and started taking home "cheese from cheddar."

***

Cheddar is so important to the English palate that during World War II, it was illegal to commercially produce any other variety of cheese in England.

***

Cheddar cheese is naturally white or pale yellow. These days, much of it is dyed orange with seeds from the annatto plant, and early cheese makers used carrot juice and marigold petals.

***

"American" cheese is a young, pasteurized cheddar that undergoes additional processing to become the easy-to-melt variety.

***

According to historians, President Andrew Jackson once served a 1,400-pound block of cheddar at a White House party.

***

"Squeaky curds" refers to fresh young cheddar in its natural shape, before it's pressed into a block and aged. Fresh curds are considered a delicacy - and they actually make a squeaking sound when you eat them.
