Canada Dry is a brand of soft drinks owned since 2008 by the
American company
Keurig Dr Pepper. For over 100 years,

Canada Dry has been known mainly for its ginger ale, though
the company also manufactures a number of other soft drinks
and mixers. Although Canada Dry originated in Canada, it is
now produced in many countries.

 

Annie Oakley is a Western television series that fictionalizes the life
of the famous
Annie Oakley. (Except for depicting the protagonist
as a phenomenal
sharpshooter of the period, the program entirely
ignores the facts of the historical Oakley’s life.) Featuring actress
Gail Davis in the title role, the weekly program ran from January
1954 to February 1957 in
syndication. A total of 81 black-and-white
episodes were produced, with each installment running 25 minutes
in length.
ABC aired daytime reruns of the series on Saturdays and
Sundays from 1959 to 1960 and then again from 1964 to 1965.

National Hot Dog Day was started by the North American Meat
Institute in 1991 and began being promoted and organized by the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council after they were
created by the institute in 1994. The day coincides with the
Annual Hot Dog Lunch at Capitol Hill in Washington D.C.,
which is also sponsored by the North American Meat Institute.

The lunch, which has taken place for decades, is a large hot dog picnic
attended by lawmakers, administration officials, and Capitol Hill
staff.
