Trivia:  Those Were the Days

The year Mr. Potato Head first showed his head.  (Actually he didn’t.  The first potato heads came with facial implements but no head.  One used a potato.)  It was the first toy advertised on TV.  Speaking of TV, the #1 show had a hit song, I Luv Lucy.  The Yankees won the series and the Minneapolis Lakers (you heard that right) won the NBA.  For our music lovers, Les Paul started selling something called an electric guitar.  (They said it would never last.)



Saying of the Week

I’d rather regret the things I’ve done than regret the things I haven’t done.
