Did You Know?????

Four months from today is CHRISTMAS!!!!!!! The following is from usefultrivia.com: The Baby Ruth candy bar was named after Grover Cleveland's daughter. On May 15, 1950 Coca Cola became the first product ever to appear on Time Magazine. Introduced in 1963, the very first Easy Bake Oven was turquoise and came with a carrying handle and a fake stove top. The very first Pizza Hut was built in Wichita, Kansas. Running for eight seasons, "Bewitched" was the longest running of the so-called "fantasy" sitcoms in the mid 1960's. Catwomen made her first appearance in Batman #1- Spring 1940. The world's biggest pumpkin holds the record at 1,385 pounds! Beauty and the Beast was the first full length animated feature to be nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture. It did win a Golden Globe for Best Picture. The game Twister consists of 24 spots of four different colors. Fish scales are commonly used in the making of lipstick. It makes it SHINY. :) I give you this information to file away to use during an unexpected lull at any of your future parties. Enjoy! :) ~Keep on Dreaming~

  3. I enjoyed the trivia, but I think I'm going to stop wearing lipstick now!! Ha! To answer your question you left on my post, I'm a native of Topeka.

    Have a great rest of your week!

  4. I will never look at my tube of Estee' lipstick the same again. UCK!!! I always start shopping for Christmas in August. With eight grannies to buy for it takes time to "gett'er done!" Have a great day in the classroom and keep on country dreaming. May God bless your day.

  5. A lot of interesting facts. The Pizza Hut original location is preserved in Wichita. It's a very small place . . .

  6. Why did you have to throw in the fish scale tidbit? I don't think my morning beauty routine will ever be the same again! Now are you planning on using these trivia facts at the annual New Year's Eve Party when I've consumed some adult beverages? Curious minds need to know!
