Did You Know That...

Horses have been a part of human culture for at least 10,000 years; but, it wasn't until 900 BC that soldiers started riding them. They rode horses bred for size and were helped by the invention of the bit which, along with reins, allowed the soldier to control their mounts while using a weapon.

The name of the popular beverage "7-Up" came from the fact that, when it was originally produced, it came in 7-ounce containers. The 'up' describes the direction the carbonated bubbles went in upon opening a can.
