First McDonalds Happy Meal The very first Happy Meal in 1979 was the Circus Wagon Happy Meal. It cost one dollar and contained either a McDoodler stencil, a puzzle book, a McWrist wallet, an ID bracelet or McDonaldland character erasers. The original Happy Meal consisted of a hamburger or cheeseburger, twelve-ounce soft drink, a small order of french fries, and a "McDonaldland Cookie Sampler", a small portion of cookies.

Magnificent Marble Machine Here's a unique and forgotten game show: The Magnificent Marble Machine! Hosted by Art James, the show ran for 11 months on NBC starting on July 7, 1975. Designed to take advantage of the pinball craze, contestants were paired with celebrity partners to solve word puzzles, which, by some bizarre logic, entitled the winners to play an oversized pinball machine for cash and prizes! If the ball hit a bumper the contestant won a prize. Hey, I liked the show, but I was 11 years old at the time.

The Jokers Wild 1969 Pilot This clip is a real puzzler. It apparently is the pilot episode of The Joker's Wild from 1969, hosted by Allen Ludden. I can't find a darn thing about this version of TJW. There's no mention of it in my usually reliable TV reference book Total Television. It only lists the Jack Barry version (which began on September 4, 1972) and its syndicated revivals. Be that as it may, this is a rare color glimpse of a 1960s game show!

First Crossword Puzzle 1913 Arthur Wynne started a sensation on December 21, 1913. His creation, the first-ever crossword puzzle, appeared as a 'mental exercise' in the Fun section of the New York World. The numbering system is a little different than what you'd see in today's puzzles. Clues listed both starting and ending numbers. Within a decade, crossword puzzles were a newspaper staple throughout most of the English-speaking world. I'll post the clues for this historic puzzle if anyone requests them.

Poppy - Symbol of Remembrance When Americans visit Canada in the the first days of November, they are often puzzled by the poppies Canadians wear on their jackets. The poppy is a symbol of remembrance that dates to the First World War. It is based upon a famous poem, In Flanders Fields. It was written by a Canadian battlefield surgeon John McCrae, who was in charge of an aid station in Belgium in 1915. McCrae wrote the verse after a close friend of his was killed by an artillery shell. (McCrae himself did not survive the war; he died of meningitis in 1918.) The full poem is below in the comments section. A good many Canadians know it by heart.
