Lol Pixie - that one got me too, my daughters are 15 months apart.
Apparently it is bad luck to put new shoes on a table (???) Also here in the Uk - if it rains on St Swithin's Day it will rain for the next 40 days...
"Every second that you live you are never going to get back. You are never going to get to change what you said, didn't say, did, or didn't do. Live how you want to live. Act how you want to be remembered, because you never know how long or short you are going to be here." ~Emily Doberstein~
Someone I used to work with years ago told me one that was a little scary. She said that when you are sleeping/dreaming and a person who is deceased comes into your dream, then don't talk to that person at all. If you talk to that person in your dream, you will be the next to die. Apparently this happened to a couple of people in her family.

That cherries and milk together are poisonous. Hello -- ever eat cherry-vanilla ice cream? The story got started because one of the 19th century Presidents (can't remember which one) guzzled a glass of cold milk and cherries on a very hot day and had a heart attack. Everybody immediately assumed it was the cherries and milk when it was more likely the heat and his age.
