    For all those that said Catcher in the Rye - congrats.

    On December 8, 1980, Mark Chapman shot John Lennon, remaining at the site, reading J. D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye until the police arrived and arrested him. He said that the novel was his statement and that his life mirrored that of Holden Caulfield, the protagonist of the book.

    I'll go with Teddy Roosevelt - he seemed the kind to drink expensive wine, but not so sure he was a cheapskate!

    Give us a little hint??

    This sounds like something Benjamin Franklin would say, but he was never president so....

    How about Reagan??

    I am confused...thought the quote was from Teddy...didn't think he was that old or used Celsius.;) It's in the Gipper's "ball park", age-wise!

    Better late than never Mal [​IMG]

    quote.

    Mark David Chapman, the young assassin, was carrying two things with him when he shot and killed John Lennon on the steps of the Dakota apartments in Manhattan: a pistol and a paperback copy of The Catcher in the Rye. The function of the pistol was obvious. Less obvious was the function of J. D. Salinger's novel

    Just my luck - to finally have the correct answer - but it's not the $64,000 question. Oh well - I'll just go and enjoy my .... absolutely nothing! I guess "absolutely" nothing is better than just plain nothing. ;)

    OK, here's another trivia question -

    How many people does McDonald's serve each day?

    1. 3 million
    2. 12 million
    3. 33 million
    4. 69 million

    Remember when the sign first said "1 million people served"?

    Since I just finished my first cup of coffee today and am almost alert, I will have to say 69 million. This is based on the fact that I am 69 years old and believe in order :rolleyes:! And I am so happy that you are enjoying your prize!

    @Richard, you are right! You're infallible logic of believing in order has proven to be good. According to McD -
    "they have more than 36,000 restaurants serving approximately 69 million people in 118 countries each day. They also serve approximately 9 million pounds of french fries a day. Counting $32 billion in revenue from franchise stores, McDonald's claims the 68th biggest economy, bigger than Ecuador. "

    Since all the prizes seem to have been awarded, I guess you get to post the next trivia question - if you're so inclined.
