“Legos, Arbys & the Magicians”

Legos are a better investment than gold.  Their value has gone up about 11% a year since 1987, which is better than gold, stocks, or bonds.   https://www.cnet.com/news/lego-bricks-outshine-gold-bars-as-investments-report-says/

Arby’s was originally created in the 1960s to be a higher-end fast food restaurant.  Their first roast beef sandwiches cost 69 cents . . . which was four times more than a hamburger at McDonald’s.   http://mentalfloss.com/article/70858/11-meaty-facts-about-arbys

 New York City had an official magician from the 1930s to the 1950s.  His name was Abraham Hurwitz . . . and his daughter was Shari Lewis, who went on to create “Lamb Chop’s Play-Along”.      http://www.nytimes.com/1981/10/01/obituaries/abraham-hurwitz-dead-at-76-new-york-s-official-magician.html
