Mostly irrelevant pieces of information that I remember:

The earth, if in a black hole, would be 0.7 of an inch wide and would weigh what it does now.

Brandon deWilde, who died in 1972, played the little boy in “Shane.”

Bob Chesnes was the only player on the 1946 Salt Lake City baseball team who made it to the big leagues.  Played for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Before Burkina Faso became Burkina Faso it was Upper Volta.

When Lord Shiva, expressing his sorrow at the death of Sati Devi, carried her decomposing corpse throughout India, body parts fell off and where they landed became shrines.  Kalighat Temple in Kolkata is one such place.  It is said her right toes landed here.

To change centigrade to Fahrenheit multiply 1/5 of the centigrade number times 9 and add 32.  So 10° centigrade = 50° Fahrenheit.

John Coltrane died on July 17, 1967.

Bill Miller was Barry Goldwater’s running mate in 1964.

Great years for Port that I have cellared are 1945, 1948, 1955, 1963, 1970, 1977 and 1985.

That’s enough for now.  Have a great day!
