A Lightweight Vacuum ... Even a 6-Year Old Can Handle

Mrs.

by Kathy Wolfe

October is National Pizza Month! If you’ve eaten pizza in the past month, you’re part of the 93% of Americans who have done that same thing. In fact, across the nation, about 350 slices are consumed every second, equivalent to about 100 acres of pizza each day. If you’re an average citizen, you’ll eat about 46 slices, equal to 23 lbs. every year. Pizza sales generate about $30 billion annually. • It should be no surprise that pepperoni is the nation’s favorite topping, featured on about 36% of all pizzas ordered. That adds up to approximately 251,770,000 lbs. of this meat every year. Our least favorite topping is anchovies. About 61% of the population likes thin crust best and 14% prefer thick crust. The remainder like very thin crust the best. • There are more than 61,000 pizzerias in the United States. Over 9,000 of those are in New York. About 17% of the restaurants in America are pizzerias. • Pizza evolved in Italy hundreds of years ago as a way to use up leftovers. With no refrigeration or way to preserve perishables, women would roll out dough and put remnants of meals along with fresh produce on the dough to bake. Turn the page for more!

• Antica Pizzeria is the first known pizzeria, which opened in Naples, Italy in 1738. In 1830, the Port’Alba restaurant opened in Naples, baking their pies in an oven lined with lava from nearby volcano Mount Vesuvius. America’s first pizzeria was opened by Gennaro Lombardi in 1897 in New York City, and is still in operation just down the street from its original location.

• Super Bowl Sunday is the highest pizza sales day of the year. Domino’s Pizza alone sells more than 110 million pizza slices on that day, about 80% more than a normal Sunday. Super Bowl Sunday is followed by New Year’s Eve, Halloween, Thanksgiving Eve, and New Year’s Day. But even with all the pizzas sold on those days, pizza still takes second place in the takeout department for the over-50 crowd, edged out by chicken. • In 1958, two brothers from Kansas borrowed $600 from their mother to start up a pizza restaurant in a 600-square-foot building in Kansas. Frank and Dan Carney opened up the first Pizza Hut near Wichita State University, and just one year later, had their first franchise restaurant in neighboring Topeka. Within 10 years, there were 300 Pizza Huts across the nation. Today there are approximately 12,000 Huts in over 90 countries around the world. In America, this chain is the largest user of cheese, purchasing more than 3% of the country’s supply, an amount that requires 170,000 dairy cows to produce.

PIZZA (continued) • Pizza Hut’s first ad back in 1965 featured the slogan “Putt Putt to the Pizza Hut.” A man in a business suit driving his 1965 Mustang was the star of the ad. Over the years Donald and Ivana Trump, Ringo Starr, The Monkees, and even former USSR President Mikhail Gorbachev have appeared in Pizza Hut advertisements. • Pizza Hut may be the largest pizza chain with the most restaurants, but it’s not the leader in delivery. That honor belongs to Domino’s, who has nearly 11,000 stores in more than 70 countries, delivering more than million pizzas every day. Domino’s started out with one store in 1960, when Tom Monaghan and his brother James borrowed $900 to buy DomiNick’s, a pizzeria in Ypsilanti, Michigan. The following year, James traded his half of the company for a Volkswagen Beetle. In 1965, Tom renamed his store Domino’s Pizza. By 1978, there were 200 restaurants. In 1983, the company opened not only its 1,000th store, but its first international outlet as well, in Winnipeg, Canada. • Less than half of Domino’s pizzerias are located in the U.S., about 5,000 out of 11,000. The U.K. is home to 774, India has 715, Mexico totals 592, and Canada has 380.

FALL SAVINGS!

• Now estimated as the third largest pizza company, Little Caesars Pizza got its start in Garden City, Michigan in 1959. After Detroit Tigers’ shortstop Mike Illitch was injured, he and his wife Marian went into the pizza business. Mike wanted to name the restaurant Pizza Treat, but Marian had a better idea. She thought of Mike as her “little Caesar,” and the name stuck. That original store is still in operation today.

PIZZA (continued): • Available pizza toppings in North America vary according to geographical area, and in some parts of the country, regional favorites are Cajun shrimp, oysters, crayfish, tuna, venison, duck, eggplant, and artichoke hearts. The majority of the population still favors meat toppings (62%), while the remaining 38% prefer vegetarian ingredients. International toppings include Japan’s favorite squid, eel, bacon, and potato pizza. In India, folks prefer pickled ginger, mutton, and tofu, while a fish pizza is the Russian’s choice, a combination of sardines, tuna, mackerel, herring, and salmon. In the Netherlands, if you order up a Double Dutch, you’ll receive double cheese, double onions, and double beef.

• On Oct. 26, 1776, a month after being named a diplomatic agent, Benjamin Franklin sets sail from Philadelphia for France, where he was to negotiate and secure a formal alliance and treaty. While Franklin's personal achievements were celebrated and feted in Paris, his treaty success was slow. The treaty wasn't signed until 1778.

Hollywood actors saw their careers destroyed over false allegations or when they protested having their political loyalties questioned.

• Mozzarella cheese originated in Italy, produced from the milk of water buffalos. Traditional mozzarella comes from those buffalo in a very few countries, including Bulgaria and Italy. Because it is not aged like most cheeses, traditional mozzarella is eaten fresh within a few hours after it is produced. Most mozzarella is made from pasteurized cow’s milk due to the rarity of the water buffalos. • What about pizza’s caloric content? A pepperoni personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut is about 625 calories, while one slice of that company’s Supreme pan pizza is 440 calories.

HEART ATTACK FACTS • 37% of all deaths in the United States are related to heart disease, making it the largest single cause of natural death. Heart disease kills twice as many people as all forms of cancer combined. The major causes are smoking, fatty diet, high blood pressure, obesity, stress, heredity, lack of exercise, and diabetes. It is an illness produced of man's environment. Before 1900, heart attacks were very rare. The rate of heart disease increased so sharply between 1940 and 1967 that the World Health Organization called it the world’s most serious epidemic. • Every single cell in the heart is guided by an electrical impulse which synchronizes the heartbeat so all muscle cells contract in unison to pump the blood. During a heart attack, the cells begin firing out of turn so the efficiency of the heart is lost and the blood does not get pumped. When doctors shock the heart, the shock overrides each cell’s individual firing mechanism and once again synchronizes every cell, hopefully getting them all to work together again.

FAMOUS CANADIANS:

JONI MITCHELL

Back in the 1960s and 1970s, she was one of the leading folk performers, racking up Grammy after Grammy. Let’s examine the facts on the talented Canadian native, Joni Mitchell. • We know her as Joni Mitchell, but she was born Roberta Joan Anderson. Her father, a Royal Canadian Air Force flight lieutenant, was stationed in Fort Macleod, Alberta, during World War II, instructing pilots, and it was here that Roberta was born in 1943. • As a child, Joni developed an interest in classical piano when several of her friends were taking music lessons, and she developed a love for Rachmaninoff, Chopin, Beethoven, and Debussy. She herself began piano lessons at age 6. But when she was 8, calamity struck in the form of polio. It was 1951, before Jonas Salk’s polio vaccine was in use, and an epidemic swept through the area. Joni was bedridden for weeks, and during her confinement, she became interested in singing, frequently practicing on her fellow patients. • Physical weakness following her recovery forced Joni to leave behind any athletic interests she may have had, causing her to fully pursue the arts. Singing, poetry, and painting became her loves. As a teen, she began singing in small nightclubs in western Canada, as well as adding songwriting to her list of accomplishments. Her playing and songwriting took on a different sound due to a weakness in her left hand as a result of the polio. This made it impossible for her to play certain chords, so she created a different sound with alternative chords she could manage, chords that Mitchell herself calls “Joni’s weird chords.”

• Joni played gigs in local coffeehouses in Calgary, saving up money to fund her real desire – art school. She enrolled in Calgary’s Alberta College of Art and Design to pursue painting, but dropped out after a year. It was in a Toronto folk club that she met a Michigan folk singer, Chuck Mitchell. Within a week, the pair were married, followed by an immediate move to the United States, where they began playing music together. • The marriage didn’t last but her music did, and in 1968, when she was 25, Joni Mitchell recorded her debut album, produced by David Crosby. It was followed closely by her second album “Clouds,” which featured her famous composition “Both Sides Now” and earned Mitchell her first Grammy. She wrote and recorded “Big Yellow Taxi” in 1970, with its well-known line, “They paved paradise and put up a parking lot.” One of the biggest hits for the group Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, “Woodstock,” was composed by Mitchell. • She began her move from folk songs to jazz and blues in 1974 with the album “Court and Sparks,” which is now her most successful album. Rolling Stone magazine ranks it as #111 on their list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. • Joni Mitchell has received eight Grammy Awards, most recently in 2008. In 2002, she was awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, which described her as “one of the most important female recording artists of the rock era.” She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997, and into the Canadian songwriters Hall of Fame in 2007. • Today, Mitchell is retired with numerous health problems. She began smoking at age 9, and it has been her lifelong habit.

LAUNDRY

It’s time to air the dirty laundry about dirty laundry! Here’s the dirt on everybody’s not-so-favorite chore. • The word “laundry” has is origins in the Latin word Lavanda, which translates “things to be washed.” We also get our word “lavatory” from the same root, which meant “a place to do washing.” • The average family does 8 to 10 loads of laundry weekly, about 50 lbs. worth. Each load contains about 16 items, with an average time for completion from start to finish of one hour and 27 minutes. • Where do people do their laundry these days? Back in 1992, just 17% of homes had a separate laundry room. Today that figure is nearing 60%. The dark and dreary basement laundry room is also becoming a thing of the past, as over 60% of new laundry rooms are being built on upper floors.

• Considering the everincreasing cost of postage, you might be surprised to learn that the U.S. Postal Service was free until 1863.

• Those who study such things say that 20 percent of American men have spent at least one night in jail.

Weekly SUDOKU

• Any novelty seeker planning a trip to Japan ought to include a trip to the town of Susami, home to the world's deepest underwater postbox. A scuba diver who would like to send a unique message should head to the local dive shop and buy a special water-resistant postcard, then use an oil-based marker to write the message. On a dive off the town's coast, the diver can head down 30 feet to deposit the mail in a red postbox, which is checked every few days by a dive-shop employee. All the postcards are then taken to the local post office and sent on to the recipients.

• Milton Hershey, creator of the iconic Hershey Bar and founder of the Pennsylvania company town that bears his name, grew up in a Mennonite family, working on the family farm. He had no formal schooling past the fourth grade. He served as an apprentice to a candy maker, then started his own confectionery. It failed. His second attempt also was a failure. His third attempt in the candy business was such a success that he sold the company for a large profit in 1900. He immediately used the proceeds from that sale to come up with his own formula for milk chocolate and create the Hershey Company.

• The first hand-operated washing machine came along in the mid-1800s. It consisted of a revolving wooden drum turned by hand. It was later updated to include pegs and gears to push clothes through soapy water. The invention of the internal combustion engine and electric motor in the early 1900s revolutionized doing the laundry. In 1908, Chicago’s Hurley Company introduced a galvanized tub and wringer powered by an electric motor. Unfortunately, there was no on-off switch and there was a danger of the user’s hands getting caught in it. Washers became automatic in 1937 when the Bendix Corporation was issued the first patent that eliminated the dangerous wringer. By the 1940s, nearly 60% of American homes had an electric washing machine.

• It was President John F. Kennedy who defined happiness as "the full use of your powers along lines of excellence."
