"My wife has been my closest friend, my closest advisor. And she’s not somebody who looks to the limelight, or even is wild about me being in politics. And that’s a good reality check on me. When I go home, she wants me to be a good father and a good husband. And everything else is secondary to that."

Barack Obama

History Fact

Living Legacy

The last living Buffalo Soldier (member of an all-black US Army regiment) was Mark Matthews, who died on September 6, 2006 at the age of 111. Matthews fought in both world wars, and until the age of 109 had excellent health and good memory, and often enjoyed recounting tales from his military experience 60 years prior.

Movie/TV Trivia

Everyone wanted a pet rat after watching Ratatouille

Ratatouille was the 2007 film of a food-loving rat named Remy who wants to become one of the greatest chefs the world has ever seen. After the movie’s release, kids everywhere were clamouring to get their hands on a pet rat and rodent sales increased sharply in the wake of the film.

One domestic pet chain experienced a 50 percent increase in sales after Ratatouille hit cinema screens!

Pet shop owners were also rubbing their hands together after Finding Nemo came along. Kids everywhere decided that they wanted a pet fish, and numbers increased sharply.

However, public service announcements had to be released after many children soon got bored of their new friends and mistakenly believed that flushing them down the toilet was the best thing to do. Sadly all that does is trap the fish in a device which is usually used to purify water, and instead leaves the pet …vapourised.

This means that Finding Nemo has a lot of blood on its hands because the movie is actually responsible for thousands of innocent fish deaths!
