November 18

National Vichyssoise Day

Pronounced "vee-shay-swah," this silky potato and leek soup is traditionally served chilled, but it is equally delicious when hot. http://www.food.com/recipe/vichyssoise-373757

Push-button Phone Day

Bell Telephone introduced the first commercial push-button telephone on November 18, 1963. It was installed first in Carnegie and Greensburg, Pennsylvania, just outside of Pittsburgh. The push-button phone replaced the rotary dial phone, which had been in use for decades. Customers had to be convinced to use the new phones. Bell was quick off the mark with their interactive display shown in this video from the 1963 Seattle World’s Fair, showing why users should switch to the new push-button phones.
