Trivia Tuesday

What do you think is the world's largest fast food chain? You might be surprised!


Actually I wasn't too surprised. I've traveled a bit and well, this place is everywhere! (Well if a 'place' can be everywhere.)
 So take a guess.
Come on.
(I'm trying to fill the space so you won't find out when you see my Facebook post.)

It's SUBWAY!!
In 1965, 17-year-old Fred DeLuca borrowed $1,000 from Peter Buck to form Pete’s Super Submarines. Never heard of it? The restaurant in Bridgeport, Connecticut, now goes by the more succinct “Subway,” along with the 40,000-plus other locations worldwide.

I put this on Facebook last week but you may have missed it...
As you may know: April Fool's Day and Easter collide this year!
Here's more info on that: For the first time since 1956, Easter Sunday falls on April 1 - or April Fool's Day. Since 1900, Easter has fallen on April Fool's Day only four times - 1923, 1934, 1945 and 1956. It won't happen again until 2029.

With his pals Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Joey Bishop, and Peter Lawford, Sinatra led the Vegas clique known as the Rat Pack. The name was coined by actress Lauren Bacall years earlier to describe a Hollywood drinking circle that included her then-husband Humphrey Bogart and Sinatra. The guys in the Rat Pack actually referred to themselves by a different name – The Summit – playing on a 1960 summit meeting in Paris between top world leaders.

The glass winged butterfly lacks colored scales, which makes its wings transparent and helps it avoid predators.
