Dionne Quintuplets The Great Depression did not produce many happy stories, but the birth of the Dionne quintuplets near remote Callander, Ontario, Canada in 1934 was at least outwardly a feel-good news item of the decade. Five identical girls were born to Elzire Dionne on May 28, 1934. They were attended to by a country doctor, Roy Allan Dafoe. Never before had quintuplets survived infancy. The story turned sour when the quints were made wards of the Ontario government because of the financial straits of the Dionne family and other concerns. The provincial government built Quintland, a tourist attraction where the girls were put on public display for the numerous visitors who travelled the Trans-Canada Highway to northern Ontario to see them. Quintland served as a home for the girls who were cared for by nurses, as well as a museum and viewing area for the tourists. Eventually some three million tourists came to Quintland--as many as 6,000 each day at its peak. (There was no admission charge to see the quints, but the region reaped millions of dollars in revenues from hotels, restaurants, etc.) At one point, the quints were Canada's top tourist attraction, surpassing Niagara Falls. The quints were isolated from the outside world and even from their parents and other siblings. The Dionne parents staged years of legal challenges to regain custody of their estranged daughters. They finally succeeded in 1943. The three surviving quints were awarded a large cash settlement in the late 1990s by the Ontario government. Only two of the girls survive today.

Red Barn Commercial 1971 Red Barn was a hugely popular hamburger restaurant in my hometown in the early 1970s. (I used to get a free burger coupon in the mail around my birthday!) Red Barn was a chain of burger joints that had locations in 19 states and Canada. The facades of their restaurants were designed to look like barns. This is a 1971 commercial advertising the Barnbuster burger. The main character, Hamburger Hungry, looked too much like Ernie from Sesame Street and had to be redesigned not long after this commercial aired to avoid copyright troubles.

Ontario Anti Smoking Poster When the Canadian province of Ontario was debating outlawing smoking in restaurants and bars, this was one of the posters it used. The argument was that wait staff, cooks, bartenders, and so on, deserve a smoke-free environment. It worked. Ontario has gone completely smoke-free in bars and restaurants.

Who has owned a restaurant the longest? Here's a challenge for you. In my community there is a restaurant called Ramon's Cactus Patch, and it's been owned and operated by Ramon Sanchez since 1938. I admit that most of the work is done today by his son Roque (pronounced Rocky) and his daughter Ramona, but Ramon, in his mid-nineties, is still the boss! Can you come up with a restaurant still operating with the same owner for a longer time? Not just the same family, but the same individual. The Cactus Patch has been in its present location since 1962.

Colonel Sanders on Whats My Line Here's one for the archives! Colonel Harland Sanders, the magnate of Kentucky Fried Chicken, appears on What's My Line as a regular contestant on December 1, 1963. Even though there were more than 900 KFC restaurants in existence at the time, the panel does not know who he is! Unbelievable!
