Parting Comments

• Deep Thought of the Week: Behind you, all your memories. Before you, all your dreams. Around you, all who love you. Within you, all you need.

• Notable Quote: “Life is like a camera. You focus on what’s important. Capture the good times. Develop from the negative. And, if things don’t work out, take another shot.”

• That’s Puny Department: The girl in the middle of the tennis court is Annette.

• Did You Know Section? ---Was there ever a real “Uncle Ben”?

The simple answer is “Yes”. The original Uncle Ben was a black rice farmer who lived in Texas. His rice crop was renowned among the rice millers in and around Houston for being the highest quality. His rice was so good that the other farmers proudly compared their rice to his, claiming it was “as good as Uncle Ben’s.” In the late 1940’s, two or the founders of Converted Rice Inc. (forerunner of Uncle Ben’s Inc.) were having dinner in their favorite Chicago restaurant, discussing how to better market their “converted” rice in the United States. They both were familiar with the Uncle Ben quality story and decided to call their product Uncle Ben’s Converted Brand Rice and manufacture it in the rice-growing area around Houston, where Uncle Ben was said to have farmed. The restaurant’s maître d’, Frank Brown, was a close friend of the two men. They talked him into posing for the famous Uncle Ben portrait that is still on the company boxes today.
