What famous mystery writer claimed she got her best story ideas while sitting in a bathtub munching on green apples?

Agatha Christie

Hmmm - I wonder if she would have gotten the same inspiration if she was munching red apples? emoticon
One summer day in 2010, a five-year-old boy named Andrew was playing at a New Jersey lake when he wandered into deeper water and began struggling. His mother tried to help, but lost her footing on the slippery rocks and started panicking. Then Andrew disappeared beneath the surface. Suddenly, a neighbor, 8-year-old Reese, ran to the water’s edge and dove in. A few long seconds later, Reese surfaced, holding Andrew around his shoulders, and pulled him safely to shore. The save was textbook lifeguarding … a skill Reese had learned from a SpongeBob SquarePants episode in which SpongeBob becomes a lifeguard.
According to a poll in Bird Talk magazine, parrots’ favorite TV show is SpongeBob SquarePants.
