Hi Debby, The boil, boil, toil and trouble thingy is from MacBeth. From the three witches. To satisfy your yen for trivial knowledge.

Bubble, Bubble, toil and trouble, In the caldren, boil and bubble! Isn't that from a fairy tale? Hansel and Grettle, perhaps? I must be getting punchy due to the late hour, (smile). Yes, we hear the boiling sound. I had a very cool experience recently, so, I know what boiling water would feel like cool. We got some food from Omaha Steaks delivered about two months ago. They pack it in a cooler with dry ice. Bruce, being the scientist that he is, (he majored in physics education as an undergrad), he put the chunk of dry ice in a bowl and ran warm water over it to cover. That thing "boiled" cooly. I mean the temperature of the water was bathwater warm, but the sound was a rolling boil and when I put my hand in the water, it was bubbling wildly, so that is how I know what a boil would feel like in a literally cool way. It really fogged the dry ice, Bruce said. I bet that is how the foley artists made boiling sounds when the mad scientist was working in his lab or the witch was making her brew.
