  1. The last (verified) person to have been born in the 1800s died in 2017 at the age of 117.  She was an Italian woman named Emma Morano.  Her mother and sisters were also blessed with long lives, but when asked about the secret to her longevity, Emma said she ate three eggs a day . . . two raw, one cooked . . . she liked pasta, minced meat, chocolate, cookies, and the occasional homemade brandy, and, above all, she thought positively about the future.
  2. The term midlife crisis was coined by a Canadian psychoanalyst in 1965.  Which means the term is 58 years old and probably having its own midlife crisis.
  3. Simon Says has different names in many other countries, like Jacques Says in France, Teacher Says in China, and The King Commands in Norway.
  4. Minnesota hasn’t gone to a Republican presidential candidate since Nixon in 1972.  No other state has gone that long, mainly because the other 49 all went for Reagan in 1984.
  5. When Levi’s started selling jeans in the 1870s, they called them “waist overalls”.
