Exact dates are subject to debate.

 

WNBT started broadcasting in 1939. It would have started earlier if not for the Depression. And because of a war in 1941-42 Broadcast TV was delayed for another 10 years.

 

The ballpoint pen was invented in 1938. But when did they become common writing tools?

 

In 1933, came FM radio. Penicillin in 1928. Air conditioning came in 1902. The year before in 1901 there was "instant" coffee. When did they become well known and used by the masses?

The statement was "The Grandfather replied, "Well, let me think a minute, I was born before".

Yes, that is the exact statement BUT he was not born before! He may have been born before use by the masses but definitely NOT born before.

 

Let's see, "Red E Coffee" - the brand name for instant coffee first marketed in 1909. In 1938, Nescafe or freeze-dried coffee was invented.  So, instant coffee was available to the masses as early as 1909.

 

In the U.S., the first ballpoint pens went on sale at Gimbels Department Store in New York City on October 29, 1945 for US$12.50 each.

 

I sure I can find similar info for the other items I listed but have better things to do with my time.

Available at corner delis, cafeterias and restaurants or only at the "better" stores?

Pens at $12.50 a pop isn't exactly common.

Just tried posting a veg/fruit chart and was told it had 164,000+ characters and had to be shortened to 60,000.  It didn't seem any bigger than usual.  I didn't know of such limits.  Oh well.

I'll probably get more warnings now about the virus than the actual virus itself.

news to me -

 

 

 In the event you are interested... I doubt if the "mainstream" media cares?

 

Barack Hussein Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Barack Hussein Obama Sr. (black muslim) of Nyangoma-Kogelo, Siaya District, Kenya, and Ann Dunham of Wichita, Kansas. (white atheist ).

When Obama was two years old, his parents divorced and his father returned to Kenya. His mother married Lolo Soetoro -- a Muslim -- moving to Jakarta with Obama when he was six years old. Within six months he had learned to speak the Indonesian language Obama spent "two years in a Muslim school, then two more in a Catholic school" in Jakarta. Obama takes great care to conceal the fact that he is a Muslim while admitting that he was once a Muslim, mitigating that damning information by saying that, for two years, he also attended a Catholic school.

Obama's father, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. was a radical Muslim who migrated from Kenya to Jakarta, Indonesia. He met Obama's mother, Ann Dunham—a white atheist from Wichita, Kansas—at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Obama, Sr. and Dunham divorced when Barack, Jr. was two. Obama's spinmeisters are now attempting to make it appear that Obama's introduction to Islam came from his father and that influence was temporary at best. In reality, the senior Obama returned to Kenya immediately following the divorce and never again had any direct influence over his son's education. Dunham married another Muslim, Lolo Soetoro who educated his stepson as a good Muslim by enrolling him in one of Jakarta's Wahabbi schools. Wahabbism is the radical teaching that created the Muslim terrorists who are now waging Jihad on the industrialized world. Since it is politically expedient to be a Christian when you are seeking political office in the United States, Obama joined the United Church of Christ to help purge any notion that he is still a Muslim.

Because, when we write open letters to him, he will have to know where to come to get his mail.

Funny that the mainstream media doesn’t care much about his drug use either. While I don't care particularly, I do remember that the MSM was very interested in GWB’s alleged drug use – no bias there.

 

If anything, right now he is the media's darling. At least CNN apologize to him when they showed a picture of Osama Bid Laden over a caption ‘Where is Obama’. I don’t remember them ever apologizing for the ‘X’ place over Vice-president Cheney’s face – no bias there either.

 

Perhaps we should be a little concerned about his chain smoking, not only does it affect health factors but it also shows a lack of resolve and discipline.

 

Regardless, this guy is a non-starter, sort of like Dean was. He, like Dean, will get a load of press touting all his support, but thereby squeezing out serious candidates. Then he’ll crash just like Dean did. Hillary couldn’t have wished for a better ‘straw man.’ He may wind up with the VP nomination at best. 

 

But if his Muslim background has to 'played up,' Hillary is just the girl to do it. (I'm hoping jfk will be in the running long enough for Clinton to release his military records.)

 

Is the country ready for a man whose middle name is  “HUSSEIN?”

Tony, thanks for the reality check there - SNOPED again!!

The lead "I doubt...why should we" came as part of the E to me.

I'll send the clip back to my source.

Thanks.

 

Terrence,
