were all available OTC at the local corner drugstores.  Yes, 100 years ago these items were touted as the best and greatest with that added bonus of being available over the counter.  Wow, times have changed.

Sugar cost four cents a pound. Eggs were fourteen cents a dozen. Coffee was fifteen cents a pound.

Most women only washed their hair once a month, and used borax or egg yolks for shampoo.

Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from entering into their country for any reason.

Imagine that?  Those liberal Canadians passing a law that didn’t allow “poor” people to enter their country.


The American flag had 45 stars.

Arizona, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Hawaii, and Alaska hadn’t been admitted to the Union yet.

The population of Las Vegas, Nevada, was only 30!!!

Eighteen percent of households in the U.S.  had at least one full-time servant or domestic help.

There were about 230 reported murders in the entire U.S.

Oh what a tangled web Hillary has woven.

I’m cleaning up after the major plumbing destruction in my home.  Hot water leak in the concrete slab inside my house.  Jack hammering, now there’s a fun way to wreck your back.  This was no small leak.  The area was 15′ x 10′.  What a mess!

Anyhow, I thought this was an interesting way to go through a church blessing.  Just having fun, enjoy the moment.

Clean your house first BLM.  Dumb, dumber and dumbest making a video to promote BLM and they are being shot at by their own dumbtards as they film.

IN my last year on Wall Street my bonus was $3.6 million — and I was angry because it wasn’t big enough. I was 30 years old, had no children to raise, no debts to pay, no philanthropic goal in mind. I wanted more money for exactly the same reason an alcoholic needs another drink: I was addicted.

Read the whole essay.  The aha moment is one that cannot be bought.  It is the moment when you understand that the path in life has changed course for the betterment of all.
