RANDOM TIDS & BITS- Thurs 12/24/15

The word “Bikini” comes from a language spoken on the Marshall Islands called Marshallese, and literally translates to “surface of coconuts.”

Only three men have been on the cover of “Vogue” since it started in 1892:  Richard Gere in 1992 . . . George Clooney in 2000 . . . and LeBron James in 2008.

Denny’s isn’t named after anyone.  It started as a donut shop called Danny’s Donuts in Lakewood, California . . . and the founders picked “Danny” because it started with a “D,” like donuts. They eventually changed the name to Denny’s because people were confusing it with another chain called Coffee Dan’s . . . and that name stuck.
