Salt Shaker Trivia - in case you're ever on Jeopardy

♦ From the salt chunk to the salt grinder to the saltcellar to the salt shaker in the shape of little birds took almost two thousand years.

♦ There is a Novelty Salt & Pepper Shakers Club whose membership includes collectors from 47 states plus Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, England, Germany and The Netherlands.

♦ There is a Salt and Pepper Shaker Museum in Gatlinburg, TN. It contains 20,000 sets of Salt and Pepper Shakers from around the world and a 1500 piece Pepper Mill collection.

♦ If you are one of those people who have bags of salt and pepper packets stolen from McDonalds in your kitchen cupboard, you have no idea what I'm talking about.
