FF- a true New Orleans accent is almost exactly like a Brooklyn accent and not at all the Southern/creole twang that most people expect or as it was portrayed in the movie "The Big Easy"

Good, that shows time is relevant. I say we WILL travel through time someday. It is only another measurement.

John Cazale, perhaps most famous for his role as Fredo Corleone in The Godfather and The Godfather Part II, appeared in only 5 feature films before dying of lung cancer in 1978. He was also shown (through archival footage) briefly in The Godfather Part III. I found Fredo to be such a tragic character, a terribly flawed and broken man. Cazale's portrayal, especially in Part II, was outstanding.

Fun fact #1: All films he appeared in were nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture. He is the only actor to hold such a distinction.

Fun fact #2: He was Al Pacino's best friend before either of them were actors. They debuted together in The Godfather.

Fun fact #3: His diagnosis of terminal lung cancer came just as his final film "The Deer Hunter" was coming into production. The studio wanted to fire him, but his friend Robert DeNiro and live-in girlfriend Meryl Streep threatened to quit the production if he was. DeNiro paid for his insurance so he could be in it. The filming schedule was rearranged to get his scenes finished first, and he died before the film was completed.

A film about him called "I Knew It Was You" was released in 2009.

I would think that CEO's would not want to be widely known...

Tigg, are you ready for the snow for you to plow, did you lube your plow properly? Years ago when I did my own property snow plowing, one year I plowed the snow only once for the entire winter and that was in March. In another year I plowed the snow 17 times and had to put the chains on 3 times. Always had 20 concrete blocks behind rear wheels against tail gate for rear wheel traction in a crib behind wheel wells. I LOVED PLOWING SNOW. NOT ENOUGH HERE IN COLORADO.

Fun fact: When surveyed, 53% of Americans over 18 cannot name a single CEO. Of any company. Anywhere.

They are better than the average of 63%. Among 10 largest countries, Germany, is the worst. 80% cannot name one. Most other developed countries (France, Japan, UK) are worse.

The countries that are better (i.e. a lower number can't name one): Mexico (50%), China (43%) and India (38%).

Interesting that the country that is by far the poorest in the survey fared the best.

VA, I'm into hydroponics and grow just about anything I want. I've also started growing pineapple and I think it's going to produce this summer. I am currently running an aeroponics cloner of 3 different cherry tomato plants. Having a blast!!
