    It was a woman and I personally have. But you're right, not a household name on a national scale.

    I didn't even realize it was a woman, thanks.

    Sometimes I miss some things, but nothing rang a bell for me.

    Thank you for the Prince s. sauce video. We reference this at family gatherings and our kids are clueless.

    I think about Anthony all the time, and I won't forget him. As it helps me to have a certain food or cuisine to focus on each day of the week, Wednesday is always Prince Spaghetti Day in my house.

    Anthony running home for dinner reminded me of my sister, Mary. Our next door neighbor was in the same grade as Mary. It was supposed my sister and this neighbor would walk home together.

    My sister Mary found if you ran home for lunch, you had more time to eat. That brought a quick end to this neighborly arrangement.

    I wonder if Mary was inspired by Anthony?

    We ran all the way home from Ravinia School for lunch and ran all the way back so that we could see as much Bozo Circus as possible.

    I went briefly to Indian Trail. Lunch break began at 11:45 am and concluded at 1:00 pm to allow kids to go home to eat.

    There was one girl who changed her clothes at lunch arriving back in a fresh outfit. I never met anyone before who did anything like that. Never met anyone since, either.

    Considering how we tend to look for clues to a long life, I find it interesting that he defied the now-conventional wisdom and drank a Pepsi every morning.

    I don't drink coffee, though sometimes my morning intake of caffeine might just come in the form of a pop. I guess I spit in the eye of conventional wisdom.

    When I was a kid, my Mom drank several pots of coffee a day. She endlessly had coffee breath, which is probably why I am not keen on coffee. When I do drink it, it is more like a sweet coffee cream.

    Now Mom can go days without coffee. I will offer her coffee, because I know how much she likes it.
