You start your world tour of honey by getting onto the Lost Connection private plane and there, meeting your first host, LeoDaVinci. As he serves you Drambuie on the rocks, you ask him: "Where are we off to, lad?" He looks at you oddly as you sip your honeyed drink and answers "to a loch near where they make that drink you're quaffing!"
Where was Drambuie originally made?
You find yourself on your way next to Florida, the hometown of one of ozzz2002's favourite singers. "See the tree, how big it's grown" is the opening line of the very soppy song "Honey" by this same guy. It was released way back in 1968, but who sang it?
From Florida it's a short plane ride north to the Canadian province of New Brunswick. In June of 2008, there was a highway disaster involving a truckload of bees being taken back to Ontario. They had been brought in to pollinate a commercial field of blueberries. The truck overturned leaving swarms of angry bees to terrorize drivers along the Trans-Canada Highway. How did they calm these angry and dangerous insects?
smoke and water
LeoDaVinci picks you up once again in Canada and guides you on a plane bound for the Holy Land of Israel. On your way there, you break bread together and recite the Jewish blessing over the bread after it is dipped in salt. LeoDaVinci muses that there is one day in the Jewish year where the bread is traditionally dipped in honey rather than in salt. What day is he referring to?
Rosh HaShanah (Jewish New Years)
Tu B'Av (Jewish holiday of love)
Sukkot (Festival of Tabernacles)
Leaving the land of Israel, Arlesienne takes you on a short hop across the Mediterranean to the land of the sardine, Monk seals, and, yes, a particular type of honey - "Miele amaro di corbezzolo". This is a special type of honey produced on the Italian island of Sardinia, has a slight but distinctive aftertaste, as suggested by its name. What aftertaste is it?
The guide for your next destination is gentlegiant17 and he takes you once again to the Holy Land. While there, you enjoy a bit of the local culture and you happen across a local birthday party. One of the songs, "At Our Village of Tudra", describes a Berber Jewish birthday ceremony where the child was given honey to lick. What was the honey shaped like?
The map of Morocco
Letters of the Hebrew alphabet
Your next destination is a country whose name possibly derives from the Greek word for "sweet honey". This is fitting because of the historic importance of a locally produced honey made by a species of bee that can only be found on these islands. Where is jmorrow taking you?
Pagiedamon takes charge of your trip and takes you to the land of the Bard, England. She mentioned one of his plays in which heartbroken Ophelia bitterly bandied the word "honey".
"And I, of ladies most deject and wretched,
That suck'd the honey of his music vows".
Which play is she referring to?
From one medium to another, Pagiedamon then takes you from English theatre to Hollywood. After landing there, you visit the set of a 1989 film in which Rick Moranis starred as a scientific genius. In this hit comedy film he portrayed a man who invented a "shrink ray". Pick the sweetly-titled movie.
Honey, I Blew Up the Kid
Honey, I Shrunk the Kids
Honey, I Shrunk The Audience!
Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves
Finally, your tour coordinator, skunkee, takes you back home. On your way there, she puts on some of her favourite songs for you to relax to after your tiresome journey. One of the songs you hear, "A Taste of Honey", was covered many times by many artists. In 1965, an instrumental version by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass spent five weeks in the top spot of the Easy Listening charts. However the song first became popular when recorded by which enormously popular group?
Gerry and the Pacemakers
The Rolling Stones
