On this day in:

1783 The Montgolfier brothers successfully sent up some live animals in a hot air balloon, including a sheep and a rooster.

1839 George Cadbury was born. He took over his father's chocolate business and built it into a major chocolate manufacturer.

1851 William Hesketh Lever, first Viscount Leverhulme, was born. British entrepreneur who founded Lever Brothers, the soap and detergent manufacturer.

1911 English author William Golding was born. His first novel was 'Lord of the Flies' (1954).

1941 Mama Cass Elliot, singer (The Mamas and the Papas) was born. The rumor that she choked to death on a ham sandwich in 1974 is not true. She actually died of a heart attack.

1949 Lesley Hornsby, aka 'Twiggy' was born. Not exactly a poster girl for French Haute Cuisine!

1959 Soviet Premier Nikita Krushchev is told he cannot visit Disneyland. Krushchev was indignant. The reason given was security concerns. Can you picture Krushchev cavorting with Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse?

1960 Mario Batali was born. American chef, author, restaurateur. (Website: http://mariobatali.com/)

1960 'The Twist' by Chubby Checker reached Number 1 on the charts. Great music to exercise to.

1975 The first episode of 'Fawlty Towers' premiered.

1995 Orville Redenbacher died. Founder of gourmet popcorn company.
