Mo Hawg - Week 23


Day 1.

   According to today's regulators and bureaucrats, those of us who were kids (or piglets) in the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s and even 1960s, 1970s and the early 1980s should not have survived! For those who have come along since then, Mo presents: "I Can't Believe We Made It" for Today: We would spend hours building go-carts out of scraps and then rode down the hill, only to find out we forgot to make brakes.  After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem. We survived.

   George McP. from Savannah, Georgia is a long-time reader and fan of Mo Hawg!  (Yes, Mo has a fan!)  George sent in these new definitions for words we only think we know: Sudafed \sood'-a-fed'\: Brought litigation against a government official.
   Thanks, George!

   George also sent along remedies for mosquitoes.  He swears these are real.  George says one of the best natural insect repellants is made from clear, real vanilla.  He also says when all else fails.get a frog! 

Day 2.  
  
      Mo's good friend, Buck Buchanan from Vacaville, California - a decorated World War II  Flying Ace and hero - sent along his personal rules and truths about healthy eating.  Mo is glad to share Buck's insight and knowledge with you!  Finally, a diet and lifestyle Mo can do!
   Buck's Healthy Eating Truths: (Mo knows that these are for fun! Please do not take these to your doctor and ask him if you can adopt this way of life and eating!) 
   Buck writes about the secret to healthy eating?  What can it be?
   Buck says, "The secret to healthy eating is thicker gravy!"    

   Every once in awhile over the next few weeks, Mo is going to have a little quiz for those of you who grew up in the 1940s and thereabouts!  It's fun!
   What postwar car turned automotive design on its ear when you couldn't tell whether it was coming or going?
  Was it the Studebaker or Nash Metro or the Tucker?
  Mo knows.  It was the 1946 Studebaker!

Day 3.

   According to today's regulators and bureaucrats, those of us who were kids (or piglets) in the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s and even 1960s, 1970s and the early 1980s should not have survived! For those who have come along since then, Mo presents: "I Can't Believe We Made It" for Today: Some students were not as smart as others, so they failed a grade and were held back to repeat the same grade.  Tests were not adjusted for any reason.  We survived.  Think about it.  This generation has produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever!

   Every once in awhile over the next few weeks, Mo is going to have a little quiz for those of you who grew up in the 1940s and thereabouts!  It's fun!
   Which of these was a popular candy when you were a kid?
   Mo knows.  Was it strips of dried peanut butter or chocolate licorice bars or wax Coke-shaped bottles with colored sugar water inside?
   Remember now?  It was the was-Coke shaped bottles with colored sugar water inside!
   Mo loved the big, red wax lips!

Day 4.

      In Japan, they have replaced the impersonal and unhelpful computer error message with Haiku poetry message.  Mo knows about Haiku.  (It has strict construction rules with only 17 syllables allowed in each poem; 5 syllables in the first line, 7 syllables in the second line and 5 in the third line.) 
   Mo presents actual error messages from Japan: "A crash reduces Your expensive computer To a simple stone."

   Every once in awhile over the next few weeks, Mo is going to have a little quiz for those of you who grew up in the 1940s and thereabouts!  It's fun!
   How was Butch wax used?
   Was it for keeping floors shiny or to stiffen a flat-top haircut so it stood straight up or to put on the wheels of roller skates to prevent rust?
   Mo remembers.  Do you?
   Butch wax was for the young man's flat top (butch) hair cut!

   Mo's Wisdom: Liberty is the only thing you cannot have unless you are willing to share it with others!

Mo's good friend, Buck Buchanan from Vacaville, California - a decorated World War II Flying Ace and hero - sent along his personal rules and truths about healthy eating. Mo is glad to share Buck's insight and knowledge with you! Finally, a diet and lifestyle Mo can do!

Beth A. writes from Meigs, "Is chocolate bad for me?"
Buck personally answered this one for Beth A., "Beth A., are you crazy? Cocoa beans, another vegetable. It's the best feel-good food around!"

Every once in awhile over the next few weeks, Mo is going to have a little quiz for those of you who grew up in the 1940s and thereabouts! It's fun!
Do you remember the name of Caroline Kennedy's pet pony?
Was it Old Blue or Paint or Macaroni?
Mo remembers! It was Macaroni!
