It's from the Bible.

>Matthew 16:2-3:

>He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring.

This is a very ancient seafarer's saying that predates the Bible.

We had 200+ members on day 1. We migrated from another platform.

>I highly doubt you had enough players who could afford to drop that sort of money to mail "hundreds of hams a day" to an individual.

Hams were like 10 cents. I don't think there was a cheaper item we could send.

Salem cigarettes are named after the city of Winston-Salem in North Carolina. You can probably also guess that Winston cigarettes are named after the same.

Winston was founded on a hill and the neighboring city Salem was founded on top of another hill, and eventually they grew into each other, but the hills earned the city the nickname "The Camel City", which is where Camel cigarettes gets its name.

Reynolds Tobacco was founded and is still headquartered in Winston-Salem. Krispy Kreme, Hanes and Sara Lee were also founded in Winston-Salem and are still headquartered there.
