In ancient Greece, the Greeks covered their bread with oils, herbs and cheese which some believe is the beginning of the “pizza”.
In Byzantine Greek, the word was spelled “πίτα”, pita, meaning pie.
A sheet of dough topped with cheese and honey, then flavored with bay leaves was developed by the Romans.
The modern pizza had its beginning in Italy as the Neapolitan flatbread.
The original pizza used only mozzarella cheese, mainly the highest quality buffalo mozzarella variant which was produced in the surroundings of Naples.
It was estimated that the annual production of pizza cheese in the United States in 1997 was 2 billion pounds.
The first United States pizza establishment opened in 1905 was in New York’s Little Italy.
Pizza has become one of America’s favorite meals.

Funk, rock, blues and country...
Selftaught multitalented artist, Clay Shelburn, has performed on stage since the age of 13. Hailing from Dallas, Texas, Clay wrote his first song at age 12; he categorises his current original music as “funktry”: a fusion of funk, rock, blues and country.
Garnering world-wide viral fame as the “Walmart Rockstar” in 2015, Clay works his way to his fans through his small independent operation. His “silly little video” not only conveys his deep passion for life and music, but also illustrates just how diligently he works at honing his craft to share with his fans.
In 2016, the St. Louis, MO National Blues Museum honored Clay and his video as part of their museum tour. Clay and his team spend their time promoting and touring his first full-length album, “Defined” and Clay plans to spend much of 2017 touring/promoting within the US and UK, with differing variations of his band: from private and intimate acoustic shows, all the way up to eight piece arrangements featuring a horn section.
Clay’s foray as a frontman echoes his deep country roots; his evolution of sound includes trading in the fiddle and steel guitar for horns and creative percussive instruments like a slinky.
As he travels in 2017 to his new (and existing) fans, Clay has already begun penning his third release...

National Pina Colada Day is observed annually on July 10th. The Pina Colada is a sweet, rum-based cocktail. Along with rum, a Pina Colada includes cream of coconut and pineapple juice and is usually served blended or shaken with ice.
Pina Colada means ‘strained pineapple,’ a reference to the freshly pressed and strained pineapple juice used in the drink.
There are different claims to the invention of the Pina Colada beginning in 1952 in San Juan, each sticking to their story. The truth is that pineapple and rum have been together from the beginning of the distillation of rum. The first written reference to a Pina Colada was in 1922. This recipe, however, did not include coconut.
you do not have to be sitting on a beach or the deck of a cruise ship. You can enjoy a nice tall, cool Pina Colada where ever you are!
