Prep Before the Game
I've been in New York a long time, but I learned to play bridge in England many years ago. One thing I noticed on moving is that Americans don't know how to drink. Sure, they can pour stuff down, but they seem to treat it as an end ...
1NT - should it be 100% forcing in response to 1H or 1S
I do have one partner who announced "forcing" after my 1NT response (correctly, per our agreement), and then passed. Everyone at the table found it amusing (fortunately), and our agreement was changed to semi-forcing before we played the second board of the round.

1NT opening range may have an impact. Playing weak NT, the minimum balanced-ish 1H/1S openings where you want to pass the 1NT response are often picked up by the 1NT opening. In that case, making the forcing NT really forcing makes a lot of sense. Playing a strong NT ...

Weaks Twos: Short strokes?
We play this (preempt keycard) over all preempts below 3NT. For every preempt except an opening 3, the asking bid is 4. Over 3, the ask is 4.
First book written by a lady
Two shillings, back when there were twenty shillings in a pound. And pre-WWI you could buy quite a lot for two shillings.
Question for those who know the ACBL rules:
Is the Dinkin Major written up any where? Sounds interesting.
