Did you read Charlie Warners article in the paper last week and how true it is. Why do we parents let our children drink so much pop and eat so much deep-fried, greasy food and then wonder about their teeth and their weight. I’m so glad someone came out with the facts and hope things can change. When I went to High School here in town our car keys (if we drove) hung in the principal’s office till time to go home, which was 4:00 o’clock and for our lunch we carried a sack lunch and had water to drink. In the good old country school we carried a syrup pail and in it was an onion sandwich and a big home-made molasses cookie, and with it was a glass of cold water. Those days everything tasted good, and we had never heard of the word “pop” or “fast-foods.”

October fields are
crowned in color
Of burnished browns and gold.
Beneath the autumn’s
warming winds
They a-wait white frosted cold.

• Henry Ford introduced the 8-hour work day and the 5-day work week in 1926.
• Music from 1926: Bye, Bye Blackbird, Mary Lou, Are You Lonesome Tonight, Baby Face and I’ll Climb the Highest Mountain.

So True
Thoughts from Ole: Unless you’re da lead dog - da scenery never changes, life is funny - we must be built backwards - my nose runs and my feet smell.

From age two until 18, the average American youth spends 11,000 hours in school, and 20,000 in front of the television.

Pine trees remain green throughout the year because their needles, like other leaves, contain chlorophyll. However, the surface of these needles is much stronger than other leaves and provides better protection throughout the winter months.

Was lazy the other day so I started reading the book “Butter in the Well,” and what those people went through just to stay alive was amazing. It is a diary from 1869 and those people came from Sweden ove .....

The Old Country Schoolhouse

With faded paint peeling,it stands all alone.
The door is ajar,all the windowpanes gone,
all about, only silence,save the wind in the trees.
