We are staying in Quincy, Massachusetts and just learned that here it is pronounced "Quinzee" which, according to what I read, is how the first settlers pronounced it. Which leads me to wonder if the president's name was pronounced John Quinzee Adams and I have been mispronouncing it all this time!

Yep, that's right. Although sometimes they can be a bit more themed, like a chocolate one

I know alot of "useless" information.

not that I have them memorized but I know who is calling by looking at the number at work. now you might think that its nothing but when you have 100s of phone call coming in from all over the world from 100s of differnent people its kidna impressive.

our 750+ Support groups, I know almost all of them

Actually I'm very impressed! It takes me forever to remember a phone number. I still have to look up my daughter's and my best friend's numbers (and our own cell phone)! Once a number finally does stick, I never forget it.

That Robin and Maurice Gibb from the Bee Gees were twins - watched the DVD a couple of nights ago and googled Bee Gees out of interest - for some reason we always thought Robin wasn't even a Gibb brother.

Here's something I learned today. Thomas Edison was afraid of the dark.

Lol! I guess that was pretty strong motivation to invent the lightbulb.
