  1. “Pumpkin spice” may have first spread to non-pie foods in 1936 when a recipe for “pumpkin spice cakes” appeared in the “Washington Post”.  It was described as a “desirable dessert for a family dinner, and a healthful pick-me-up for children after school.”
  2. Only two American artists have made a music video for over $1 million in the past decade: Madonna’s video for “Give Me All Your Luvin'” in 2012 cost $1.5 million, and Gwen Stefani’s “Make Me Like You” in 2016 cost $4 million. Britney Spears MAY have gone over $1 million for “Work [B-word]” in 2013, but the exact spend is unknown.
  3. Richard Johnson, the ninth vice president of the U.S., was in a relationship with a slave he inherited named Julia Chinn. It was illegal to marry a slave, but he openly acknowledged her as his common-law wife and they had two daughters.
  4. There are more trees on Earth than stars in the Milky Way galaxy, approximately 3.04 trillion trees versus 100 to 400 billion stars.
