Even though I'm not a fan, I notice Kingsford Barbecue bags in the grocery stores,  drugstores and places like Wal-Mart and Target all the time, but never realized how they became so popular. Eventually, all those scraps built up until  he found a way to use them.  Brilliantly, he chipped the wood and was able to convert it into the shape of mini pillows called briquets. Can you believe that he sold these through his car dealerships?  Eventually he named it Kingsford Charcoal Briquets and the rest is history!  -Favorite Brand Name Best-Loved Recipes of All Time

Do you remember having to type up your book reports on typewriters as a kid and using white-out to fix those errors?  I wish I still had mine, but I do still have a bottle of correction fluid. Tom Hanks is a collector of old typewriters.

1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime.

Men are victims of nearly 3 million physical assaults in the USA.

Many people are still unaware that verbal and emotional abuse are acts of domestic violence.
