Could Have Been Doraditos!

Doritos, the American brand of flavored tortilla chips, were first introduced in 1964 at a restaurant in Disneyland, in California, then named Casa de Fritos (it’s now called Rancho Del Zocalo).
At the time, Casa de Fritos was run by Frito-Lay (a wholly owned subsidiary of Pepsico) and Frito-Lay is the parent company of Doritos. In 1966, Doritos became the first brand of tortilla chip available throughout the United States and today “Doritos” is famous and marketed internationally.
Dorito comes from ‘doradito,’ the diminutive form of dorado, which itself is a contraction in Spanish meaning something fried and golden.

Birth of a Nation

The only U.S. President born on the 4th of July, was Calvin Coolidge, who was born on July 4, 1872.

However, there were three U.S. presidents who died on the 4th of July. John Adams died on July 4, 1826; Thomas Jefferson died on July 4, 1826 (yes, the same day as President John Adams); and James Monroe died on July 4, 1831.

Albert Einstein

“I once thought that if I could ask God one question, I would ask how the universe began, because once I knew that, all the rest is simply equations. But as I got older I became less concerned with how the universe began. Rather, I would want to know why he started the universe. For once I knew that answer, then I would know the purpose of my own life.”
