DO I HAVE A CASE?

Wednesday’s History Trivia

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:

Alene B. Duerk, head of the Navy Nurse Corps, was the first woman in the U.S. Navy to be promoted to the rank of Rear Admiral.

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:
