Old school cash register
Remember the sounds that old cash registers made? I worked for a man named Griff when I was in High School and then on college breaks. The cash register I used was exactly like this one…and you had to make change in your head, no calculators!
Remember when folks who were cashiers using one of these 'sophisticated' cash registers, had to go to special training school to work at large chain grocery stores?

My dad was a Good Humor Ice Cream man and i remember one time he let me ride along with him and man oh man did i feel on top of the world, i felt like the luckies kid ever. I sat in the front on the metal compartment where the passenger seat should be. This was by far a special dear memory. What i wouldn't give for a picture of that day. Every time i see an old GH pic I wish it was that fun day captured on film that I can cherish forever.

18 Giant Skeletons And Pyramids Found In Wisconsin-Scientists are remaining stubbornly silent about a lost race of giants found in burial mounds near Lake Delavan, Wisconsin, in May 1912.
18 Giant Skeletons And Pyramids Found In Wisconsin. I love the odd-ball history that is a bit too weird for the academy. The existence of giants is one of those laughable notions. How different would our ideas of history and of nature be, if not for the prudish censors?
★ Giant skulls and skeletons of a race of Goliaths have been found on a very regular basis throughout the Midwestern states for more than 100 years. Giants have been found in Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky and New York, and their burial sites are similar to the well-known mounds of the Mound Builder people. The spectrum of Mound builder history spans a period of more than 5,000 years (from 3400 BCE to the 16th CE), a period greater than the history of Ancient Egypt ★
Robert Lincoln the son of Abraham Lincoln, was waiting to board a crowded train when the train lurched forward and he fell between the platform and the body of the passenger car he was trying to board. But before harm came, he was seized by the collar and yanked to the platform. His rescuer was Edwin Booth the brother of the man that would soon kill President Lincoln.

There were 400 Native American Marine Code Talkers in World War II from the Navajo, Cherokee, Choctaw, Lakota, Meskwaki and Comanche tribes.

In 1936, President Franklin D. Roosevelt said, "This generation has a rendezvous with destiny." When Roosevelt said that he had no idea of how much World War II would make his prophecy ring true. More than fifty years later, Americans are remembering the sacrifices of that generation, which took up arms in defense of the nation. Part of that generation was a neglected minority, Native American Indians, who flocked to the colors in defense of their country
World War II- Native Americans, also known as "Wind Talkers", contributed to the ultimate success because the Germans and the Japanese could never understand them and they were excellent radio men. Wind Talkers were apart of the US Marine Corps. They wore light colored trousers to represent mother earth and their gold colored shirt symbolized corn pollen. The uniform in its entirety symbolized bravery, courage, and commitment to them.
Throughout the history of the United States Marine Corps, Native Americans served in the Corps as Navajo Code Talkers. Their role was to transmit secret tactical messages using codes developed in their native languages. The photo below is of Navajo Code Talkers in the Bougainville operation in 1943. The photo is from the Photograph Collection (COLL/3948) at the Marine Corps Archives and Special Collections.
If you are unfamiliar with the contributions of Navajo "Code Talkers" to the US in WWII you really should check it out. By using their native language (which is all but impossible to decode to a non-native speaker) they made it possible for many important messages to be conveyed. Their contributions were enormous.
