What is Thirteen Ninety Eight?

Pineapples. They're pretty much everywhere, & I love it.

1398 - the year the word "pineapple" was first recorded in the English language, although it wasn't to describe the fruit. "Pineapple," derived from the Spanish word "pina," first described pinecones. It was only about 300 years later, when the word "pinecone" was introduced to our language, that "pineapple" became the official word for, well, the pineapple.

Weird name for a blog? Maybe.
