DREW BARRYMORE

Answer: Drew Barrymore achieved fame as a child actress with her role as Gertie in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982).

After her much-publicized battle with alcohol and drugs as a youth, the 43-year-old actress has bounced back, with films including The Wedding Singer (1998), Never Been Kissed (1999), Charlie’s Angels (2000), 50 First Dates (2004), and He’s Just Not That Into You (2009). Barrymore has also found success behind the screen as a director, screenwriter, and producer.

What is the only food that doesn't spoil?

Honey

 

14 hours ago, dgrimm60 said:

HONEY

Answer: Honey is something of an oddity, in that, unlike most foods, it doesn’t spoil over time. In fact, the oldest known sample of honey, found in an Ancient Egyptian tomb and dated to approximately 3000 years ago, was still edible. Honey has been called the only food that truly lasts forever, thanks to its magical chemistry and the handiwork of bees. The nectar from flowers mixes with enzymes inside the bees that extract it, which changes the nectar’s composition. The liquid created has less moisture and is more acidic keeping the bacteria away naturally. When the honey is sealed properly, moisture cannot be absorbed, and the honey stays the same forever.
