LESLIE’S TRIVIA BITS: December 11, 2017 Not to be confused with a ChapStick, a Chapman Stick is a musical instrument that looks like the neck of a 10-string guitar, without the body. It’s named for Emmett Chapman, the guitarist and instrument builder who devised it in the 1960s and refined the design in the 1970s. Rather than fingering the notes with one hand and picking or strumming...

LESLIE’S TRIVIA BITS: October 30, 2017 In 1871, Canadian-born Englishwoman Lucy Walker became the first woman to reach the 14,692-foot summit of the Matterhorn, fifth-highest peak in the Alps.

He published the compilation in 1855, with...

LESLIE’S TRIVIA BITS: October 9, 2017 The narrow space between the roof of a building and the ceiling of the top story -- smaller than an attic, too small for storage or living area -- is called a cockloft. Washington Irving found the word so amusing he invented a whole family with the surname Cockloft. For most of us, it’s antiquated...

LESLIE’S TRIVIA BITS: October 2, 2017 In Jules Verne’s “Around the World in Eighty Days,” Phileas Fogg departs from London on Oct. 2 and plans to return on Dec. 21 “at a quarter before nine p.m.” (There’s a wager of 20,000 pounds at stake so he’d better be right!) The 1956 movie version was filmed in...
