 FOO   FIGHTERS

Answer: On May 20, 2015, the Foo Fighters were the final musical act to perform on Late Show with David Letterman, continuing their long association with David Letterman as he wrapped up his 33-year career in late night television. The final show ended as the Foo Fighters performed Letterman's favorite song "Everlong". Letterman has frequently credited the song with helping him get through his recovery from heart surgery. The six-minute-long performance was set to a montage of footage spanning Letterman's career. The band postponed their international tour to make the appearance on the shows finale.

Which cartoonist created the donkey and the elephant as symbols for the Democratic and Republican parties?

Thomas Nast

 the answer  is  THOMAS NAST dgrimm60

Answer: Thomas Nast is widely credited with perpetuating the donkey and elephant as symbols for the Democratic and Republican Parties. Nast first used the donkey in an 1870 issue of Harper’s Weekly to represent an anti-war faction with whom he disagreed and in 1871, he used the elephant to alert Republicans that their intra-party fighting was detrimental to the upcoming elections. Along with the donkey and elephant, the German-born Nast is also credited with creating the modern images of iconic characters such as Santa Claus and Uncle Sam.

NOTRE  DAME

Answer: Perhaps the most distinct and iconic image of the Notre Dame football program is the gold helmet which the Fighting Irish began wearing in the 1950s. Through the years preparing the gold helmets has been an elaborate operation that at one time included student managers painting the helmets with real gold flakes. Not just any gold flakes but flakes from the 24K gold leaf that was scraped from the iconic Golden Dome. Although the tradition of painting the team's helmets prior to each game ended in 2011, there are still 23.9-karat gold flakes in the paint of every football helmet.

Boulder Dam

PBOULDER  DAM

Answer: Surveyors originally recommended the dam be constructed at Boulder Canyon, leading the dam to be called the Boulder Dam. Although Black Canyon was later deemed a better location for the new structure, it continued to be referred to as the Boulder Dam. So how did it come to be called Hoover Dam? In September 1930, construction began on a railroad line that would terminate at the dam site. During the groundbreaking ceremony for the railroad line, it was announced that the new dam would be named for the then current president, Herbert Hoover.

Which breed is the cartoon dog Snoopy?

Beagle

 

10 hours ago, dgrimm60 said:

BEAGLE

Answer: Snoopy is Charlie Brown's pet beagle in the comic strip Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz. Snoopy, arguably the world's most beloved cartoon beagle, first appeared on the comic strip scene on the October 4, 1950 strip, two days after the comic strip began. He was called Snoopy for the first time a month later, on November 10. The original drawings of Snoopy were inspired by Spike, one of Schulz's childhood dogs. Although this dog was a pointer, and not a beagle as was Snoopy, family photos of the dog confirm a certain physical resemblance to Snoopy.

September 9

Answer: If you were born on September 9, you are far from alone. According to data from the National Center for Health Statistics and the Social Security Administration, September 9th is the most common birthday in the United States, followed closely by September 19th. Of the top 10 most common birthdays, nine of them happen to be in September — with all of them falling between Sept. 9 and Sept. 20. The data was collected by looking at the average number of births per day from 1994 to 2014 - for Sept. 9, that came out to 12,301 births. That's a lot of Virgos.
