First, some Halloween humor:
Trivial Pursuit is a board game that involves players attempting to answer questions to demonstrate their general knowledge. Here are some facts about women that you might not know:
The designer of the Statue of Liberty, French sculptor Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi, used his wife as the model for the body and his mother as the model for the face. (Just a thought. Were family holidays interesting… or argumentative?)
In 1930, the heaviest a female flight attendant could weigh was 115 pounds. They also had to be unmarried nurses. ( Seems to be a bit restrictive for application. And does it seem a bit disconcerting about flying safety that only nurses could apply? Might explain why I am not a big fan of flying.)
She was born Florence Nightingale Graham but was better known by her business name, which became a cosmetics empire: Elizabeth Arden.
Here is some Kennedy family history: Rose Kennedy was the daughter of the Mayor of Boston, the wife of the Ambassador to England, and the mother of a President: John F Kennedy; and two Senators Robert and Ted Kennedy. She lived to be 104 years old, outliving four of her nine children.
And finally, former Senator and Presidential/Vice Presidential candidate summed it up, “Behind every successful man is a proud wife and a surprised mother-in-law.”
And now our pic o’ day. A bit mean, but it when it was forwarded to me “for the blog”, it made me laugh:
It’s going to be a great Wednesday!!
