Who is the Greatest Sports Star?

Thursday, Jan, 14 2016

The debate is as legendary as the athletes themselves. Who is the greatest sports star of all time? The answer is definitive: Michael Jordan. That's the word from The Harris Poll, which surveyed 2,368 U.S. adults nationwide. Jordan was followed on this list of greatest athletes by Babe Ruth and Muhammad Ali.
The top 10 greatest athletes of all time:
1. Michael Jordan (basketball)
2. Babe Ruth (baseball)
3. Muhammad Ali (boxing)
4. Serena Williams (tennis)
5. Peyton Manning (football)
6. Joe Montana (football)
7. LeBron James (basketball)
8. Tiger Woods (golf)
9. Tom Brady (football)
10. Wayne Gretzky (hockey)
The last time this poll was conducted was in 2009. Between then and now, the following athletes fell off the top 10 list: Brett Favre (previously in fifth place), Ted Williams (previously tied for 8th place) and Hank Williams (previously tied for 10th place). New to the list in 2016 are Serena Williams and Tom Brady. Men agree that Babe Ruth is number two, while women lean towards Serena Williams for second place. Men and women agree that Muhammad Ali ranks third. Among generations, Millennials rank LeBron James second, followed by Serena Williams, while Gen Xers and Baby Boomers both rank Muhammad Ali and Babe Ruth as second and third respectively. Matures rank Michael Jordan second and Joe Montana third.

1915 - One Hundred Years Ago

Wednesday, Jan, 6 2016

?

What a difference a century makes!

?Here are some statistics for the Year 1915:

The average life expectancy for men was 47 years.

Fuel for cars was sold in drug stores only.

Only 14 percent of the homes had a bathtub.

Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone.

??The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.

The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower.

The average US wage in 1910 was 22 cents per hour.

The average US worker made between $200 and $400 per year ...

A competent accountant could expect to earn $2000 per year.

A dentist $2,500 per year.

A veterinarian between $1,500 and $4,000 per year.

And, a mechanical engineer about $5,000 per year.

More than 95 percent of all births took place at home.

Ninety percent of all Doctors had NO COLLEGE EDUCATION!

Instead, they attended so-called medical schools, many of which were condemned in the press AND the government as "substandard."

Sugar cost four cents a pound.

Eggs were fourteen cents a dozen.

Coffee was fifteen cents a pound.

Most women only washed their hair once a month, and, used Borax or egg yolks for shampoo.

Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from entering into their country for any reason.

The Five leading causes of death were:

1.  Pneumonia and influenza
2. Tuberculosis
3. Diarrhea
4. Heart disease
5. Stroke

The American flag had 45 stars ... 

The population of Las Vegas, Nevada was only 30.

Crossword puzzles, canned beer, and iced tea hadn't been invented yet. 

There was neither a Mother's Day nor a Father's Day.

Two out of every 10 adults couldn't read or write?, and, only 6 percent of all Americans had graduated from high school.

Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over the counter at local corner drugstores.

Back then pharmacists said, "Heroin clears the complexion, gives buoyancy to the mind, regulates the stomach, bowels, and is, in fact, a perfect guardian of health!"  (Shocking?)

Eighteen percent of households had at least one full-time servant or domestic help...

There were about 230 reported™ murders in the ENTIRE U.S.A. !


It is impossible to imagine what it may be like in another 100 years.

Ways to Save the Day with Toothpaste

Tuesday, Jan, 5 2016

If you like to get your money's worth by squeezing every ounce from a tube of toothpaste, you'll be happy to know it has many other uses besides cleaning your teeth.

What you can do:

*  Patch small holes in your walls.  Use a putty knife or butter knife to smooth non-gel toothpaste into the hole.  Then sand the toothpaste to smooth the surface.
*  Erase crayon marks from walls.  Grab some non-gel toothpaste and a scrub bruish, then just wipe until the marks are gone.
*  Shine chrome.  Smear non-gel toothpaste on the chrome surface, use a soft, dry cloth to wipe it down.  The fine abrasive in the pste polishes the chrome to a spotless shine.
*  Deodorize a baby bottle.  Apply toothpaste to your bottle brush to scrub out the stale milk smell.  Then rinse it away.
