Rick Who?

Rick did it get it's name? Who was Rick? What is his association with a rack? What kind of rack is it? What is the best way to attach it to a card? These are my ponderables this evening. Just ask my husband...I got a million of them! Oh if he only had a nickle for every time I have turned to him and said, "Have you ever wondered...."
