The Rover Boys - Book Series The Rover Boys, or The Rover Boys Series for Young Americans, was a popular juvenile literature series authored by Arthur M. Winfield, a pseudonym for Edward Stratemeyer. Thirty titles were first published between 1899 and 1926. The original Rover Boys were brothers Tom, Sam, and Dick Rover. Their children (Fred, son of Sam Rover; Jack, son of Dick; Andy and Randy, twin sons of Tom) became the main characters of the shorter "second series" that began with Volume 21, The Rover Boys at Colby Hall, published in 1917. The elder Rovers continued making appearances in the second series. The Rovers were students at a military boarding school. They were adventurous, prank-playing, flirtatious, and often unchaperoned adolescents who were frequently causing mischief for authorities as well as criminals. The series often incorporated novel technology of the era, such as the automobile, airplanes (The Rover Boys in the Air) and news events, such as World War I. Although the last installment of the series was published in 1926, the whole Rover Boys series stayed in print for years afterward.

Hal Roach Interviewed at Age 100 Here's something fun: In January 1992, seven days after his 100th birthday, famous film producer Hal Roach was interviewed on The Tonight Show by Jay Leno. Roach began making a name for himself with silent comedies in the 1920s. Among other achievements, Roach was responsible for creating the Our Gang series of short comedies and for brilliantly pairing Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy together. Roach's mind was still very sharp for a centenarian and his stories were amusing. He died ten months later.

Canadian Hockey Fans Finish US Anthem On November 15, 2014 the Toronto Maple Leafs were hosting the Nashville Predators at the Air Canada Centre. Whenever an American-based team plays in Toronto, both the US and Canadian anthems are performed. This night, the singer's microphone malfunctioned halfway through the Star-Spangled Banner. No problem! The crowd finished the anthem for her!

Little House on the Prairie Set Today The Big Sky Ranch was where the classic NBC series Little House on the Prairie was shot during it nine-year run (1974 to 1983). The wooden buildings no longer exist. (One of the conditions for LHOP to use the venue stated that the buildings used in the show had to be dismantled once the series ended.) Here's what the ranch looks like today--along with what it looked like when the show was in production.
