Have you ever wondered why our great grandparents all had such fond memories of their youth?

Well... I'm surprised they remembered anything at all !!!

Forget Tums & Tylenol. Forget Aleve & Benedryl.

Look at the cool stuff they had back then!

A bottle of Bayer's 'Heroin'.

Between 1890 and 1910 heroin was sold as a non-addictive substitute for morphine.
It was also used to treat children suffering with a strong cough.

Coca Wine, anyone?

Metcalf's Coca Wine was one of a huge variety of wines with cocaine on the market. Everybody used to say that it would make you happy and it would also work as a medicinal treatment.

Mariani Wine.

Mariani wine (1875) was the most famous Coca wine of its time. Pope Leo XIII used to carry one bottle with him all the time. He awarded Angelo Mariani (the producer) with a Vatican gold medal.

Maltine.

Produced by the Maltine Manufacturing Company of New York . It was suggested that you should take a full glass with or after every meal. Children should only take half a glass.

A paperweight:

A paperweight promoting C.F. Boehringer & Soehne ( Mannheim , Germany ). They were proud of being the biggest producers in the world of products containing Quinine and Cocaine.

Opium for Asthma:

At 40% alcohol plus 3 grams of opium per tablet, it didn't cure you... But you didn't care!

Cocaine Tablets (1900).

All stage actors, singers, teachers and preachers had to have them for a maximum performance. Great to 'smooth' the voice.

Cocaine drops for toothache.

Very popular for children in 1885. Not only did they relieve the pain, they made the children very happy!

Opium for newborns.

I'm sure this would make them sleep well.(not only the Opium, but also the 46% alcohol)



It's no wonder they were called, "The Good Old Days".
From cradle to grave... Everyone was STONED!

GOOD MORNING FC!! Boy I've been busy cleaning, painting and all that fun stuff one does before they put their house on the market. It's been very healing to get rid of the dust and straighten up things.

I'm taking it easy today. It's a Stevie kinda morning.

Iron Man was and remains one of the most surprisingly well done of the Marvel heroes into movies, Downey does just bring Tony Stark to vivid life.
Really looking forward to the new Star Trek here...
Good morning, Will ... No one, in my mind, could play Tony Stark like Robert Downey, Jr ... The movie ended with Iron Girl as Gwynyth Paltrow so it leaves my mind as to whether there will be an Iron Man 4 ... Goodness ... but I love the Marvel series ...

I'm anxious for the Lone Ranger to hit the big screen ... Johnny Depp playing Tonto ... that should be a scream, LOL ...

Yes, this collection is my favorite, it combines mostly the best of the two records, and it rides with me playing where ever I go, expanding meanings and sounds with every listen.
"I wonder... Wonder, I do."
I "hear" you and I "hear" different words and meanings every time I hear the soundtrack to the DVD ... Don't you just love the bass to the beginning of "I Wonder" ... I can hear it now ... Oh, great ... now it's stuck in my head the rest of the day ... You enabler you, LOL ... Have a great day, Will! Peace Love and Music ~ FC <3 ...

The movie was a well-deserved Oscar winner!
Why yes, yes it was! Those who haven't seen it cannot relate to what we are talking about ... The movie, in itself, is what makes this man, IMHO, a hero ... He was to South Africa to what Elvis was to America ... I suppose is the only way, musically and popularity the best way to describe him ... That's my take and I think the best way the movie described him ... Just am so glad those guys in the movie pursued him ...

Good morning, Daz ... Well, you know what George Carlin said about stuff, lol ... If you haven't used it in a year, it's time to throw it out, put it in a garage sale or donate it to Purple Hearts who will, I think, will come and collect it from your home ... I don't do Goodwill because most of their salary goes to upper management ... They claim to give jobs to rehabilitating people but then the pay them minimum wage ... so how does that help the workers who work their arses off? Don't get me started ... Anyway, hope things are working out well and coming along ... Wish I was there to help you out but I'm there in spirit! Carry on my friend, carry on! Take it easy, pace yourself and have a beautiful day! >hugs< FC <3 ...
