German Children of Charles Lindbergh In 1927, Charles Lindbergh, a virtualy unknown air mail pilot from Minnesota, became a worldwide celebrity with his daring solo flight over the Atlantic Ocean. He remained a beloved American hero until the onset of the Second World War when his isolationist views thinly disguised an admiration for Nazi Germany. Twenty-nine years after Lindbergh died in 1974, Lindbergh's reputation took another beating. It was revealed he had fathered at least seven children with three German mistressess during his many trips abroad in the 1950s and 1960s. In 2003 three of them, the children of Brigitte Hesshaimer, produced 112 letters Lindbergh had written to their mother along with childhood photographs with the famed aviator and their own recollections of the tall, lanky man who they knew as Careau Kent. DNA tests conclusively proved they were Lindbergh's children. The Hesshaimer children, born between 1958 and 1967, said they didn't realize Lindbergh was their father until the early 1980s when Bouteuil, the middle child, began asking questions. After discovering a bundle of letters allegedly written by Lindbergh and addressed to her mother, Bouteuil confronted her and was finally told that Kent was actually Lindbergh. The children promised to keep the secret until both their mother and Lindbergh's widow, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, were deceased. Both died in 2001. The revelation stunned Lindbergh's Pulitzer-prize winning biographer, A. Scott Berg, who told the Associated Press when the siblings made their claim, it would have been "out of character for Lindbergh to father the siblings." The Hesshaimers say Lindbergh met their mother, a Munich hatmaker, and fell in love in the mid-1950s when he spent much of his time traveling. Lindbergh would visit the family once or twice a year when the children were young, staying for five days to two weeks, Dyrk Hesshaimer said, and their mother forbade them from discussing their father outside of the family. “We quickly built up a close relationship to him,” he said. “We didn't have the time together with him that other children had with their fathers, but when he was there he concentrated very intensively on us.” Bouteil recalled breakfasts where her mother and Lindbergh would talk for hours, and of the people he'd met. “I knew he was something special,” Dyrk Hesshaimer said. “He had knowledge about U.S. politics that wasn't in the news at the time.” Their mother received what would be her final letter dated Aug. 16, 1974. It read, “I am losing energy everyday. My love to you and the children, all I can send.” Brigitte Hesshaimer later read in the papers that Lindbergh had died of cancer on Aug. 26, 1974 She told her children simply that their father was dead. Subsequent research by German investigators found that Lindbergh had fathered four other children with two other German women.

George Steinbrenner Enemy of the State Winner To celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2004, Sports Illustrated conducted extensive scientific polls of sports fans in all 50 states. One question asked respondents to name the person they considered the biggest 'enemy of the state.' Only one person 'won' in more than one state: Omnipresent New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner! Not surprisingly, Steinbrenner swept the New England states, finishing first in Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire, Delaware, and Connecticut. However, the contempt sports fans held for Steinbrenner spread far and wide. He also 'won' in both Florida and Alaska!

Cleveland Barons Here's a sports trivia question to stump your friends: What was the last team in the four major professional sports leagues to fold? Answer: The National Hockey League's Cleveland Barons. The Barons began as the Oakland Seals in 1967. The Seals moved from California to Cleveland in 1976 after nine unsuccessful seasons on the west coast. In Ohio they failed to attract a following in two more unsuccessful seasons. The NHL allowed the Barons to merge with the financially strapped Minnesota North Stars for the 1978-79 season. The Cleveland Barons thus became the first NHL team to fold since 1942.

Longest-owned restaurant in America question mark Okay, friends, I'm going to try this again, because I just found out that the reason no one could access this post was because of the question mark in the title. 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.

What Is That I cried like a baby on this one. My 2 year old son asked me the same question---I only made it to answering him 3 times before loudly stating it was a Sparrow, a Full Grown Sparrow. I guess I can only expect the same.

Whats My Line Interactive Game Part 2 After seeing Steve's post from last September, Mia requested another interactive version of What's My Line. (Some of you might recall that, at Steve's request, I created one shortly thereafter. It was very successful and I promised to do another. I guess it just slipped my mind.) Anyway, I'll again pretend that I'm esteemed WML host John Daly. A mystery challenger has just entered the studio and signed in to great applause. You can all be the WML panelists. Your task is to identify said mystery guest by asking questions that can be answered yes or no. As in the previous game, the mystery challenger may be a deceased person. Good luck!

This Is Your Brain On Drugs this shows a frying pan and a man says, "This is drugs." He then cracks open the egg, fries the contents, and says, "This is your brain on drugs." Finally he says - "Any questions?"

Canadas Most Famous Photo Here's a good question for this website's regulars: What's the most famous photograph in American history? Is it the flag-raising at Iwo Jima? Is it the VJ Day kiss in New York City. Is it Lee Harvey Oswald getting shot? How about the grieving girl at Kent State? There are probably a dozen photos that merit consideration. In Canada we have no such debate. This is it: Frank Orr's photo of Paul Henderson celebrating his series wining goal in Moscow in 1972. Orr got rich from its countless reprints.
