We had another quiet weekend at Havenwood. Since we’re still quarantined not much happens sometimes.
Some of us do exercises in our room like punching the remote or the TV 15-20 times a day.
Wednesday was our big day with the famous trivia question. We filled them out in our rooms and got the answer later.
Since Johnny Cash’s birthday was Friday, February 26, that’s what the trivia was on.
Johnny Cash was born in Arkansas in 1932.
“Hello I’m Johnny Cash” are the famous four words Johnny says at the beginning of the song “Folsom Prison Blues.” The album came out in 1968. It was a live performance at Folsom Prison.
“Hurt” was a remake song from the band Nine Inch Nails.
Cash recorded the song “A Boy Named Sue” in 1969. It was written by Shel Silverstein.
The name of the soldier who helped raise the flag at Iwo Jima was Ira Hayes. Cash released the song “The Ballad of Ira Hayes” in 1964. Cash received several death threats after releasing the song because it was about an Indian.
Cash recorded “Ring of Fire” with “Love is a Burning Thing” as the opening of this song.
The name of a song that Cash did with Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings, and Willie Nelson was “Highway Mom”.
What is the name of the song with the lyrics “The beer I had for breakfast wasn’t bad, so I had one more for dessert” is what? If you guessed “Sunday Morning Comin’ Down”, you are right. Kris Kristofferson wrote this son and Cash recorded it in 1970.
In 1976, Cash recorded this song about slowly stealing a car from the GM Assembly line. It was called “One Piece at a Time”.
In 1956, Cash wrote and recorded the song “Because You’re Mine I Walk the Line.”
This song is about a poor family who gets in a circle and sings. It’s called “Daddy Sings Bass,” It was written by Carl Perkins and Cash recorded it in 1968.
That’s it for all you Johnny Cash fans.
Since it was President’s Day this month I had some trivia in my back pocket on that subject too. The first President to reside in the White House was John Adams.
The first President to have a Christmas tree in the White House was Pierce.
The first actor elected as President was Ronald Reagan.
The shortest president was James Madison.
Henry Truman used to get up at 5:00 a.m. to practice piano before the started his day.
William Taft had the honor of being the heaviest president – weighing in at 332 pounds. He had to be extricated out of the White House bath tub.
The first president to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize was John Kennedy.
Lastly, the first president to be a Rhodes Scholar was Bill Clinton.
I’m sure this is the tip of the iceberg on Presidential Trivia out there but here are a few highlights.
I hope you enjoyed this segment. Also on Wellness day someone dropped off some pictures, letters, and photos of Mrs. McCarthy’s 4K class at Glenwood Elementary School.
The items were so sweet and interesting. It made our day.
Friday we thought we would be able to get out, but now it looks like next Wednesday, so no Bingo or jamming in the hallways.
Better days are comin!
