“Ripe Old Age of Five……Little Bobby Wants to be a Chef ……Please Respond in English”

Until the 1850s, more than 40% of people born worldwide would die before they turned five.  It’s now down to 4%, which is still definitely too high, but a pretty huge improvement.

When he was eight, Bobby Flay asked for an Easy-Bake Oven for Christmas.  And he got one.

People in France don’t really use RSVP anymore . . . because the language is too formal.  If you don’t know, it stands for Repondez s’il vous plait.  (Reh-pon-day see voo play.)  And it means “please respond.”
