The Alley Cats

Did You Know? - The Alley Cats are an American doo-wop group singing in a cappella. The group originated in 1987, when a doo-wop revival program was occurring at Fullerton College. Two men, also the group's future founding fathers, Mando Fonseca and Royce "The Voice" Reynolds, decided to start an a cappella group.

Two additional members along the way, Todd Dixon and Andre Peek, materialized and the foursome gained notice. Since then The Alley Cats have performed for many audiences, ranging from elementary school fun nights to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, as well as opening for Leno at his Las Vegas shows. The Alley Cats's sound has been heard as well at The White House.

The Alley Cats have won two Contemporary A Cappella Society awards: one for best album (The Doo-Wop Drive-In Live) and one for best song ("What's Your Name").

Kathy and "The Beard"

Did You Know? - A beard is the collection of hair that grows on the chin, upper lip, cheeks and neck of human beings. Usually, only pubescent or adult males are able to grow beards. However, women with hirsutism may develop a beard. When differentiating between upper and lower facial hair, a beard specifically includes the moustache, which refers to hair above and around the upper lip.

Over the course of history, men with facial hair have been ascribed various attributes such as wisdom, sexual virility, masculinity, or a higher status; although beards may also be perceived to be associated with a lack of general cleanliness and a loss of refinement.

Beard growth is linked to stimulation of hair follicles in the area by dihydrotestosterone, which continues to affect beard growth after puberty. Hair follicles from different areas vary in what hormones they are stimulated or inhibited by; dihydrotestostorone also promotes balding. Dihydrotestosterone is produced from testosterone, the levels of which vary with season; thus beards grow faster in summer.

Did You Know? - A calzone ("stocking" or "trouser") is a turnoveror Folded Pizza that originates from Italy. It is shaped like a semicircle, made of dough folded over and filled with ingredients common to pizza. The typical calzone is stuffed with tomato and mozzarella, and may include other ingredients usually associated with pizza toppings.

In the United States, calzone are typically made from pizza dough and stuffed with cheese (usually mozzarella cheese, but some varieties contain Parmesan, Provolone or a locally substituted cheese), or ricotta, ham or salami, vegetables, or a variety of other stuffings. It is typically served covered with marinara sauce, or topped with garlic and parsley-infused olive oil. The dough is folded over and sealed on one edge or formed in an enclosed circular shape[citation needed] before being baked in an oven.

Sue tried the flatbread

Did You Know? - A flatbread is a simple bread made with flour, water, and salt and then thoroughly rolled into flattened dough. Many flatbreads are unleavened — made without yeast or sourdough culture — although some flatbread is made with yeast, such as pita bread.

There are many other optional ingredients that flatbreads may contain, such as curry powder, diced jalapeños, chili powder, or black pepper. Olive oil or sesame oil may be added as well. Flatbreads can range from one millimeter to a few centimeters thick.
