Cheese was created over 4,000 years ago — by accident.

It takes 10 pounds of milk to make just one pound of cheese.

Of the more than 2,000 varieties of cheese available worldwide, mozzarella is the favorite.

If a cheese is named after a city, it’s capitalized. Examples include Asiago, Brie, Camembert, Gouda, and Parmesan.

Mice don’t particularly like cheese. They prefer sweets and carbs.


Kristen Stewart says she never thought a “Twilight” sequel would get made. She shot to stardom as ‘Bella Swan’ in the movie franchise, but said on a podcast that she never expected the first film to take off in the way that it did. Quote: “We just did not know. And it was kind of like an oddball, slightly marginal teen movie. I didn’t think everyone was going to take to that.” Now, Stewart says despite the success of the Twilight films, she still loves appearing in “smaller” projects.

A famous piece of horror movie history going up for sale — the axe from Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 masterpiece “The Shining”. The axe is featured in scenes toward the end of the film, including when Jack Nicholson’s character uses it to break through a wooden door, leading up to his famous line, “Here’s Johnny!!!” The film, based on Stephen King’s novel, also features Nicholson’s character ‘Jack Torrance’ carrying it with him into the maze as he trudges through the snow to find his son. The axe, displayed in a frame, along with some photos of its scenes in the movie, is going up for sale through Gotta Have Rock and Roll auction house, and is expected to go for at least $100,000.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by


Here are some common ‘made up’ rules — some of which are so well known they are just assumed to be in the rule book – but aren’t . . .

Taking a lap: In the official rules, it says you can start buying property straight away. You don’t have to go around the board once beforehand.

Free Parking: You know how all the taxes paid go in the middle, and the person who lands on “Free Parking” gets to scoop it up? Yeah, not a rule. The Free Parking square is just that: Free parking. (Like, who DOESN’T do this?)

You can’t earn $$ while in jail: Incorrect. In the official rules, you simply can’t go around the board or buy anything. You can still collect. (I think my brother came up with this one . . . when I landed in jail!)

Landing on “Go”: Some players add an extra incentive for certain squares. For example: You don’t get an extra reward for landing on GO.

Surrendering to the banker: When a player runs out of dough, they’re done. But they shouldn’t give everything back to the bank. The rules state that the loser gives everything to the person they owe money to. That way, their properties don’t come up for grabs again, making the game much quicker.

Auctioning property: This one is a rule that many aren’t aware of…but it’s real. When a property is landed on, and nobody wants to buy it, it goes to auction. This means someone can buy it for less than it’s worth.
