on this day in…

1637 I am not totally confident with the month and day, but supposedly, Cardinal Richelieu ‘created’ the table knife when he had the points rounded on all knives to be used at his table. Presumably so no one could stab him.

1884 Cyrus Hall McCormick died. He is generally credited with the development of the mechanical reaper

1958 Velcro was trademarked.

1993 The Red Hot Chili Peppers play on the Simpsons TV show.

2008 Robert Mondavi died at age 94. A leading Napa Valley vintner who helped establish California wines among the best in the world.

As American as…well you know. Originally served cold and until the early 1900’s was considered a breakfast food.

Typically filled with cinnamon sugared apples.
