The Watergate scandal was a major political scandal that occurred in the United States as a result of the targeted June 17, 1972, break-in at the Democratic National Committee (DNC) headquarters at  the Watergate Hotel in Washington DC.   The burglars, five men, were Bernard Baker, James W.

Pictured above: Rita Hayworth setting the table, 1941/ Picture/Flickr/RockyandNelson VAV!/April 28, 2015 In 1942, after rationing was introduced in the United States by the Office of Price Administration, meal time became a tall order for any home cook in a making do with less adventure. Even the most accomplished cook found it difficult to serve both appetizing and appealing meals.  In short, cooking and eating oftentimes, became an unavoidable, but very necessary bore. If regular meal times weren't challenge enough, during the decade of the 1940s, the prospect of hosting a dinner party would likely find even the most enterprising hostess, let alone mere goddesses of the kitchen,  tremble at the daunting task before them.  Ah, but a fabulous fete or a tete a tete dinner party need not have been avoided due to rationing setbacks...especially for the ingenious and resourceful hostess!  Afterall,  armed with an arsenal of determination, magic could be wrought through the virtues of glistening, glazed hams adorning the buffet table, the importance of chicken or meats, including meat loaf. Clever hostesses worked the dinner crowds with ease plying the virtues of a veritable and bountiful gardenful of vegetables gracing the table, all paired with the oh so popular raw vegetable hors d'oeuvres and the newly created,  wildly popular Chef's Salad of the day!

RMS Titanic Passenger List

Pictured above: TITANIC, to be launched/Date Created/Published: 1911 May 31/LOC.VAV!/April 15, 2015 VAV!/April 14, 2015 This below os a listing of all passengers, some 2,200 people, known to be aboard the Titanic when it struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic the night of April 14, 1912.  In the early morning, only two hours and forty minutes after the incident, near 2:20 a.m. on April 15, 1912, the ship's forward deck slipped underwater. Her stern rose out of the water, exposing the propellers. She began to break in two between the third and fourth funnels. With air trapped in the stern, she remained afloat and buoyant for seval more minutes until finally rising to an almsot vertical position. Those remaining on board clung to the mighty vessel as she made her way to rest upon the bottom of the sea's dark and icy depths.  The account of survivors was published in the Los Angeles Times.  This list is by no means authoritative.  (The names of survivors appear in Bold type.)
