Trivia Tuesday! Ready? Ok, this is corny, but it’s the best clue I could come up with.
I scream, you scream, we all scream – – – ?
That’s right, everyone’s favorite…. ICE CREAM!
It will be honored this month. And it’s official too! In 1984, former President Ronald Regan proclaimed July as National Ice Cream Month. Now I don’t know about you, but ice cream is my favorite, any time of year! But, if they want me to eat more ice cream in July, I can certainly do that, and I’m sure the kids and grandkids won’t mind doing their part in helping celebrate either. 😛
It’s interesting to find the history behind this or that, and Father’s Day is of no exception when it comes to its place in history. So I took to task, of finding out just how Father’s Day came to pass.
Everyone’s perception of how, or why, Father’s Day came to be, is simple. To honor the selfless acts of love and sacrifices our parent of the male gender have made through the years for us, the loving children that respect and admire our Dads on this glorious day.
What has two chocolate sides and a creamy filling in the center? If you said an Oreo cookie, you’d guess wrong. Here’s a few more clues;
- What may have been originally known as the Gob?
- What looks like an over-grown Oreo cookie but isn’t?
- What has Maine and Pennsylvania in a lawsuit over possession of its origin?
No it’s not an ice cream sandwich. And no, to my great dismay, it isn’t the Gobstopper from Willy Wonka either.
Trivia Tuesday, question of the week… Everybody ready?
What took hours to make, was made of iron, dipped in tinplate, then soldered closed?
Did you guess the TIN CAN? Ok, did you really know o.O … Or did I give it away with the picture.
Well in my quest for the history on the coolest inventions ever made that have changed our lives forever, I came across this great information. It intrigued me so much, that I’ll be doing a piece on… (Can you guess? :P)…. THE CAN OPENER! Oh, I’m so excited, I can’t wait any longer. So let’s get started!
No it’s not actually toast on wheels. But it IS Trivia Tuesday! So the question is, “Where did the idea for a toaster originate?”.
The first “automatic” turnover toaster was patented in 1914 by Lloyd Copeman. The patent, however, is held by his wife Hazel B. Copeman. It is believed that his wife wanted a better way to toast the bread and asked her husband, Llyod, if there was a better way to do it. From there history was in the making.
