       "Six Items a Day of Enduring Insignificance" 

Greetings Infomaniacs,

I hope that everyone had a happy holiday weekend! We had a 
great time in St. Louis. The Cubs/Cardinals game on the 
fourth of July was very exciting, and packed to capacity! 
There were over 45,000 people in attendance. 

The Cubs beat the Cardinals 2-1 in a very close game that 
kept everyone on the edge of their seat. During the 9th 
inning, the fireworks over the arch started. We had a great 
view of both the game and the fireworks display. 

On Saturday, we attempted to take a tour of the Anheuser-
Busch Brewery, but all the tours were full for the day by 
the time we got there! I was upset because we had been 
looking forward to it, but at least we still got to check 
out the visitor's center and gift shop. After we left there, 
we headed over to the Arch and got tickets to journey to the 

Getting to the top of the Arch is quite an experience. You 
have to climb into the tram car through a doorway that is 
about four feet high and then sit in a semi-circle with four 
other people. The doors close and you are packed in a very 
tight space, and none of us could sit up straight because 
the top of the tram is so low. I felt a tad uneasy as we 
began our ascent to the top, and I couldn't help thinking 
how bad it would be if we got stuck in there!

Luckily, we had a safe journey and were rewarded with 
beautiful views of the city from the observation area 630
feet up from the ground. It was definitely a one-of-a-kind 

After our visit to the Arch, we headed to Laclede's Landing, 
a historical area of cobblestone streets and vintage 
warehouses that has been converted into shops, restaurants,
and bars. We enjoyed some St. Louis style pizza, listened
to some live music, and just took in the St. Louis night-

I wish we could have spent more time there, but we had to 
leave early Sunday morning so my boyfriend could get to work 
that night. However, I am glad we made the trip and had a 
fun fourth of July getaway!

only slices. In the back you can see a guy tossing a

                        RANDOM TIDBITS 

There are approximately 61,269 pizzerias in the United 
States. Each man, woman and child in America eats an average
of 46 slices (23 pounds) of pizza a year.


Pepperoni is America's favorite topping (36 percent of all 
pizza orders); we eat approximately 251,770,000 pounds per 
year. Other popular pizza toppings are mushrooms, extra 
cheese, sausage, green pepper and onion. Anchovies always 
rank last on the list of favorite toppings.


Around the world, toppings vary greatly to reflect regional 
preferences. In Japan, for instance, eel and squid are 
favorites. In Pakistan, curry is a big seller. In Russia, 
red herring is a topping of choice and Australians enjoy 
shrimp and pineapple on their pies as well as barbecue
toppings. Costa Ricans favor coconut.

Modern pizza was born in 1889 when Queen Margherita Teresa 
Giovanni, the consort of Umberto I, king of Italy, visited 
Naples. Don Raffaele Esposito, who owned a tavern-like 
place called Pietro Il Pizzaiolo, was asked to prepare a 
special dish in honor of the Queen's visit. Esposito 
developed a pizza featuring tomatoes, mozzarella cheese (a 
never before used ingredient made from the milk of water 
buffalo) and basil - ingredients bearing the colors red, 
white and green for the Italian flag. He named it the 
Margherita Pizza, after the guest of honor. Thus, the 
modern-day tomato-and-cheese pizza was born.


Marie Antionette's sister, Marie Carolina, wife of Ferdinand 
I of Sicily and Naples, had ovens built in the forest so 
she could enjoy pizza while the Royal Hunting Party feasted 
on wild ducklings and pigs killed in the hunt.


The world's largest pizza was built on October 11, 1987 by 
Lorenzo Amato and Louis Piancone. The pizza covered 10,000 
square feet and measured 140 feet across. It weighed in at 
44,457 pounds, consisting of, among other items, 18,174 
pounds of flour, 1,103 pounds of water, 6,445 pounds of 
sauce, 9,375 pounds of cheese and 2,387 pounds of pepperoni. 
The pie was cut into 94,248 slices and eaten by more than 
30,000 spectators at the baking in Havana, Florida.



Store Price: $19.99
DEAL PRICE: $7.99 for one, $11.98 for two!

==> No Dealers Please. Limit of five (5) Per order <==

Here's an amazing deal. You get not one, not two, but
THREE Silicone Brushes. These are almost exactly like
the ones you see on TV. The difference? The price! Get
three (3) brushes for less than what you pay for one on
TV or from a store. This was a special buy we pulled off,
but we only got 1250 pieces. Once they're gone, they are
gone for ever. This is below the manufacturer's cost.
