“Half-heartedness never won a battle.”

—WILLIAM MCKINLEY, U.S. president
______________________________
One day a man ran into an old friend and asked him if he was still dating his girlfriend Natasha. “No,” replied his friend. “She wasn’t the sharpest knife in the block. A few months ago she decided to ride a horse for the first time. Without any instruction, she hopped on and took off at a full gallop. Everything was fine until she started losing her grip and began sliding off the horse. She tried desperately to hold on, but the horse kept up its pace, and she bounced up and down on the ground, her head within inches of the horse’s pounding hooves. That horse might have killed her if it hadn’t been for the quick-thinking supermarket greeter who ran over and unplugged the thing!”
_____________________________
What number was assigned to the phone installed in the White House in 1879 when Rutherford B. Hayes was president?

Number 1. Hayes rarely used the phone because the only other telephone in Washington, D.C., at the time was at the Treasury Department. And because there were no telephone operators or switchboards, the wires from Hayes’s phone ran from the White House telegraph room, out a window, to the Treasury Department.

For what fruit is Haiti’s currency named?

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Nope - it's the gourd, known in Haiti as gourde. In the early 1800s, the ruler of impoverished northern Haiti declared all gourds state property and had them brought to his treasury to be issued as currency. Eventually, banknotes and coins backed by gold replaced the cumbersome fruit, but gourde has been the name of Haiti’s official currency ever since.

Here are some TV firsts:

FIRST FULL-COLOR BROADCAST: On January 1, 1954, NBC made the first nationwide, all-color telecast with its coverage of the Tournament of Roses Parade from Pasadena, California.

FIRST SPIN-OFF: CBS’s western series Trackdown begat the bounty hunter drama Wanted: Dead or Alive (starring Steve McQueen) in 1958.

FIRST TOILET ON TV: The very first episode of Leave It to Beaver in 1957 was shelved for a few weeks by network censors because it showed a toilet. (Wally and the Beav tried to keep a baby alligator in the toilet tank.)
