A Little Scrabble History.

Alfred Mosher Butts was an American, who invented Scrabble in the 1930’s.

Like many, he was out of work during the Great Depression.   With time on his hands, his creative mind came up with the famous word game

Alfred liked crosswords, chess and other games that made you think. He decided to create a new game that would involve knowledge, strategy and chance.   And that he did.

 

The first British national Scrabble competition was in in 1971.

 

He first tried naming it Lexico, no interest from game manufacturers and his dream starting to fade, he renamed it Criss Cross Words. That didn’t work either so finally, in desperation, he called the game simply . . . ‘It’.

His friend, James Brunot, offered to manufacture and market the game when he retired from work in 1948. He was the one who came up with the name Scrabble.

Mr Butts died in 1993, at 93 years old.

 

Fruit Salad trees Exist!!

Fruit Salad Trees! Wow…Looks like something Dr Seuess would have made up, right? A Stonefruit Tree produces: peaches, apricots, nectarines, plums and peachcots all from the same branches!!! The Citrus Trees (pictured above) magically grows lemons, limes, oranges, and grapefruits. Then of course, there are multicolored Apple Trees too!

Rompers for Dudes? Wait. What?

 

 

No, it’s not a romper. It’s a RompHim. Well, actually, it is a romper but it’s made for dudes. Let’s be clear here: We happily invite all people to wear whatever it is that makes them feel like themselves, gender labels aside. But, ME (Maryann) as a woman who is decidedly anti-romper of any sort, I’m not sure this is a train I’d recommend anybody hopping aboard.

Captain Paul McCartney…Has A Cameo Role In The New ‘Pirates of The Carribean’

Paul McCartney took to social media to post the ad featuring him in the upcoming Pirates Of The Caribbean film, Dead Men Tell No Tales, which is set for release on May 26th. In March 2016, The Hollywood Reporter posted that although principle photography has been completed, “directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim Ronning (would) be tacking on an extra scene to the film” featuring the former Beatle. McCartney’s old friend Keith Richards famously took part in the multi-million dollar sequels portraying the father to Johnny Depp‘s character, Captain Jack Sparrow.

McCartney has become close to Depp in recent years, with the actor appearing in his 2012 video for “Queenie Eye,” and whose recent superstar Hollywood Vampires collection — including Joe Perry and Alice Cooper — also featured “Macca” covering his own 1969 classic “Come And Get It” for the album.
