Can't think of the name of it! A carousel, maybe?
    I guess, if you want to be all fancy about it. We just called them merry-go-rounds.

    Another thing I did (and still do) is recreate foods from history. My daughters and I made Laura Ingalls Wilder's wedding cake, for example, when we read the books together years ago.
    Oh, that is a great idea!

    While I personally despise candy corn, it is definitely a marker of childhood. Perhaps a moment of silence is in order.

    Todash, I had something similar happen to me a couple years ago. I went to Best Buy to purchase a Bob Seger CD. I looked everywhere and couldn't find him. A young man who worked there approached me...

    Him: May I help you?
    Me: I can't seem to find the Bob Seger CDs.
    Him: Who's that?

    I immediately came home and made sure my kids knew who the hell Bob Seger was.

    At least when I was a kid, the states still had screwballs. They were my favorite off of the ice cream truck.

    Doowogirl - do you have Kraft Peanut Butter over there? When I spent three months in Scotland I craved that stuff. Could not find it anywhere! I was on an island called the Isle of Arran but even on the mainland it seemed that they had none. You could get something similar but it did not taste the same.

    "Ooh they're red, white and blue, Lord" - I just love that song! Anyway, kind of off topic but I just wanted to share
