This purported hallucinogen was popular, back in the same days as banana peels were!eating as much nutmeg as you can and nearly dying from it

I discovered 'back in the day' that what did have really very hallucinogenic properties was (perhaps unsurprisingly) LSD.This purported hallucinogen was popular.....etc
Not even like most people from my era. I'm not going to give his whole life story, but he was brought up by a stepmother as his own mother had died in childbirth a year after Dad was born. They lived in Liverpool at the time. His dad (my grandad) was one of those people who you'd have thought was a great bloke if you'd met him in a pub, but he used to drink all his money away and my dad was brought up on a shoestring.Yes, not like the snowflakes nowadays
He was catering manager at a 'famous name' company in the 60's. I can remember well the 'discussions' he had with his head chef Dennis, who was also a piece of work! Imagine Gordon Ramsay with all the vehemence but no swearing.Your dad sounds like a survivor, did what he had to do, that was a hellava different job, bare knuckle fighter to commis chef, bet nobody complained about anything to him, ever, he really sounds like a great guy

Yellowstone National Park has been closed since March 24. Yellowstone and nearby Grand Teton National Park will announce plans for a phased reopening Wednesday.

Last fall, a man who was walking off a boardwalk near Old Faithful at night fell into a hot spring, suffering serious burns.
In June 2016, 23-year-old Colin Scott of Portland, Oregon, fell into a superheated, acidic mud pot and died. His remains couldn’t be recovered. ...
