Those Were the Days


This was the year that saw the introduction of the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown where Ty Cobb received more votes than Babe Ruth.  Fiestaware started in 1936.  It stopped in 1973 but then started again in 1986.  GEICO was founded (Geico means Government Employees Insurance Company), and Jessie Owens wins the 100 yard dash at Berlin Olympics.  Top song of the year is Bing Crosby’s Pennies From Heaven.



Saying of the Week

One chance is all you need.
