Happy Friday!  It is time to make some memories this weekend!  Here are some other Fun Facts for YOU:

1.  The winner in nine of the 58 presidential elections in U.S. history had a popular vote margin under 1%.  That includes the five winning candidates who lost the popular vote, and four others who won it by less than 1%.

2.  Coffee breaks come from a tradition in the 1800s called "elevenses" where people would get a break from work at 11:00 A.M. to drink WHISKEY.

3.  The N.W.A song "Boyz-n-the-Hood" didn't make the Billboard Top 100 chart when it debuted in 1987 but it DID make the chart after the movie "Straight Outta Compton" came out in 2015.  I am shocked that Dynamite Hacks version didn't chart!

4.  James Cameron drew the topless picture of Kate Winslet that was used in "Titanic".

5.  The French word for "paper clip" is "trombone."  Now that you think about it, trombones DO kind of look like paper clips, right?

6. The picture you see with this post is my "Weekend Mug". I refuse to drink out of this mug unless it is Saturday or Sunday. I am EXTREMELY superstitious, this is one of many of mine!
