Remember the sounds that old cash registers made? We had these kind of cash registers, too. We were firmly entrenched in vintage machines! Oh, we had four registers, and-d-d, every one was different. Drove us all crazy, and, remember this was in the year 2000 on-----
Remember the sounds that old cash registers made? There were these little like mom & pop, type little, small grocery stores on the corner in a couple of the neighborhoods we grew up in. Aaaw, they were nice; the owners knew everybody & it was so nice. All that's gone forever now, so sad. . . .
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!
~ Childhood Memories
Remember the sounds that old cash registers made? I used to love watching people operate these and desperately wanted to push the buttons..

Good Humor IceCream
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 found in Wisconsin I don't know if it's truth but interesting.
18 Giant Skeletons And Pyramids Found In Wisconsin Here’s one for your “Forbidden Archaeology” file.Scientists are remaining stubbornly silent about a lost race of giants found in burial mounds near Lake Delavan, Wisconsin, in May 1912. The dig site at Lake Delavan was overseen by Beloit Collegeand it included more than 200 effigy mounds that proved to be classic examples of 8th century Woodland Culture. But the enormous size of the skeletons and elongated skulls found in May 1912

A giant mystery: 18 strange giant skeletons found in Wisconsin: Sons of god; Admittedly a fake, but still weird..
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, Wisconsin, 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 and all of its day
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.

On February 22, 1879, Frank Winfield Woolworth opens "The Great Five Cent Store" in Utica, NY. It failed in six months, but the second store he opened in June of the same year seemed to catch on.
The Second Woolworth's Store The first Woolworth's store was founded, with a loan of $300, in February of 1879 by Frank Winfield Woolworth, but the store failed within six months. However, a second store he opened on June 21, 1879 in Lancaster, Pa., became a success. This old photo of clerks outside the F.W. Woolworth store was taken in June 1879.

1906 San Francisco earthquake - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This Day in History: April 18, 1906 | Great San Francisco Earthquake | Earthquake history in the San Francisco area did not begin with the one recorded on this day in 1906 but history was made with it being scaled the highest...almost 8.0. Only one other occurred (1911) before San Francisco experienced a 68 year quiet period (1911-1979). Its magnitude reached 6.5.
The Great San Francisco Earthquake took place at 5:12 AM on April 18, 1906. The death toll from the earthquake and resulting fire is estimated to be above 3,000 people. This is the greatest loss of life from a natural disaster in California's history.

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.
USMC Navajo Codetalkers during the Bougainville Campaign 1943. Their code was never broken by the Japanese during WWII. Code talking was pioneered by Choctaw Indians serving in the U.S. Army during World War I. There were 400 Native American Marine Code Talkers in World War II from the Navajo, Cherokee, Choctaw, Lakota, Meskwaki and Comanche tribes.
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.
Some 44,000 Native Americans served in the United States military during World War II. For every one drafted, one and a half volunteered; American Indian participation in the war per capita exceeded any other group.
