       "Six Items a Day of Enduring Insignificance" 

Greetings Infomaniacs,

Two of my closest friends (one of which you know as Steve 
from the Daily Groaner) are getting married next spring and 
they just recently purchased a home together. This past 
weekend they had a housewarming party and we all had a great 
time eating, relaxing, and playing bean bags. 

The two of them were great hosts, and Steve spent hours 
manning the grill to make sure all the guests had more than 
enough to eat. I know I sure did - I lost track of how many 
hot dogs I consumed....oh well, it's a party, right?

While we're on the subject of grilling, let's find out a 
little more about this popular summer activity, shall we?



P.S. You can discuss this issue or any other topic in 
the new Trivia Today forum. Check it out here...

                    TODAY'S MYSTERY QUOTE 

QUOTE: “If more of us valued food and cheer and song above 
hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”

HINT: (1892-1973), English writer and author 


                        RANDOM TIDBITS 

The first barbecuers may well have been prehistoric cavemen. 
Anthropologists say they may have started roasting meat 
some 1.4 million years ago.Language development didn't occur 
until 200,000 B.C. or later.Other sources say this originated 
in the Caribbean where the native Indians used wood gratings 
over a slow fire to cook strips of meat.


Lexington, North Carolina is known as the Barbecue Capital 
of the World. October is Barbecue Month there, with a month-
long Annual Barbecue Festival. The city's first barbecue 
restaurant opened in 1919; there are currently over 20 
barbecue restaurants.


People in the Northeast U.S. are the heaviest barbecuers in 
the nation. The next most frequent barbecues are in the 
North Central region of the U.S., followed by the South and 
then the Western U.S.

The word "barbecue" may have come from the French phrase 
"barbe a queue" (from whiskers to tail- The term refers to 
the original method in which a whole animal was cooked on 
a spit over an open fire), or the Taino Indian word for 
their method of cooking fish over a pit of coals (barbacoa). 
Another source says that roast mutton in Romanian 
translates into "barbec." 


Three out of four American households own a grill and they 
use it on average of five times per month.


The word steak is derived from an old Saxon word, steik, 
meaning meat on a stick. The Saxons and Jutes, who lived in 
what is now Denmark, brought along their skills as cattlemen 
when they conquered Great Britain. They favored beef cooked 
on a pointed stick over a campfire.
