QUOTES OF THE DAY
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment,
or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.
A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.
We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.
Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.
A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.
The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection.

Monday’s Quizzler is……….
What common household item wouldn’t have became popular if it wasn’t for another invention in 1928 (it didn’t take off until 1930)?
Answer: The toaster. The first electric toaster was invented in 1893 in Great Britain by Crompton and Co (UK) and re-invented in 1909 in the United States. It only toasted one side of the bread at a time and it required a person to stand by and turn it off manually when the toast looked done. Charles Strite invented the modern timer, pop-up toaster in 1919. Otto Frederick Rohwedder invented the bread slicer, which he started working on in 1912. At first, Rohwedder came up with the idea of a device that held the slices together with hat pins (not a success). In 1928, he designed a machine that sliced and wrapped the bread to prevent the sliced bread from going stale. Pre-sliced bread was popularized by Wonder Bread in 1930, helping to spread the toaster’s popularity further. The hint refers to the common phrase “The best thing since sliced bread”. The title is a subtle hint to “Wonder Bread”.
