    Contributed by Tom Papez on Feb 10, 2014

  • How To Be A Good Wife

    Contributed by Tom Papez on Feb 1, 2014

    The main excerpt of this lesson comes from an actual 1950's textbook teaching young women how to be a good wife. Needless to say the information is hysterical and it shows how the times have changed.

    HOW TO BE A GOOD WIFE The following excerpt is taken from a 1950s High School home economics textbook. I thought you may find it amusing: “Have dinner ready. Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a delicious meal—on time. This is a way of letting him know that you have been more

    Did you know that a small town in Pennsylvania has a fire that has been going on since 1962 and will never go out? Yeah, its sorta like hell.

    FIRE IN THE HOLE Centralia was a small mining town in the eastern part of Pennsylvania with about 1000 residents making their income off of the coal dug just underneath the crust.
