Well that's a pretty famous birthday! Love that Ferris Wheel. Got got on one when I was in highschool...at a local fair...stayed up there an hour before they got it fixed and got us off...quite scary, but fun.

you might not believe this, but I have never heard of George Ferris. I assume he is the inventor of this terrifying to me Ferris wheel...I never really thought why it was called that... now i know and 154 years ago is unbelievable.

Heard a few months ago that they are building a huge Ferris Wheel on my hometown Staten Island. I think that it will be visible from Manhattan.

I love ferris wheels. Hubby abhors heights. But I think he would appreciate this Mickey version, from the ground only of course, for its photo potential. I loved this fun bit of tasty trivia, visual and factual!
