ChanieE: Thank you. Last night, I did remember the “meet me at the grocer” line but that was it so thanks for the rest of it.February 25, 2011 7:19 pm at 7:19 pm #863770
Come to where the flavor is. . . come to Marlboro country.
If you don’t smoke, don’t start. If you do smoke, quit. (last commercial by the Marlboro Man, William Talman, as he was dying from lung cancer)February 25, 2011 7:27 pm at 7:27 pm #863771
Come on over to the L&M side…
Us Tareyton smokers would rather fight than switch.
To a smoker, it’s a Kent (happiness is).
At manly times like these… (L&M)
Call for Phillip Morris!
Cool and refreshing as a summer shower. (Newport cigarettes)
You get a lot to like with a Marlboro: filter, flavor, pack or box.
It’s not how long you make it, it’s how you make it long. (Winston Longs)
Why don’t you pick it up and smoke it sometime? (Muriel Cigars)
Come up to the Kool taste, the coolest taste in any cigarette. (Kool cigarettes)

The days when the majority of moms believed that having a baby meant raising a child all day, not farming them out asap and returning to work!!!
Cute memories of the metal milkboxes & phone number names (ours was Edgewood)–also remember playing games in the street daily with all the kids on the block–, what about the guy in the truck who came around to sharpen knives?February 27, 2011 3:24 am at 3:24 am #863775EzratHashemMember
2 things I find scary about being “over 40”—today noone memorizes phone numbers anymore. Who needs to , they are all in the phone memory!! But what happens if you need a phone number in an emergency and your phone isn’t accessible? Same for GPS. Today noone needs to use a map, your GPS tells you where to go. But what if the GPS suddenly is not functioning and you never learned how to read a map?February 27, 2011 4:04 am at 4:04 am #863776bbubbeeParticipant
The blue linear Chumashim were not printed by JPS but by MP press. They were the precurser to the Metzudah Chumash.
How about Simchas Torah in Shul dancing with a flag that had an apple on it.

cigarettes and alcohol were advertised on tv.
I remember getting the polio vaccine in school. I remember getting the dental slips in school to make sure we went to the dentist twice a year, which is not the norm these days. I remember the teacher administering an eye exam making you stand at the back of the room while she hung an eye chart on the board.February 28, 2011 3:46 am at 3:46 am #863781A Woman Outside BrooklynParticipant
I’m loving this thread. Reliving my childhood. Too bad kids today don’t have as much fun as we did, playing “in front of the house” until your mom called you in for dinner. Now they’re expected to know in Pre-1A (a fancy name for kindergarten) what we knew in 1st grade. And I hear the public schools in NYC are making even more ridiculous requirements, which, of cousre, we’ll have to emulate in yeshivas.
BTW, what was a typical yeshiva tuition in say the ’50s and ’60s in NYC? Most of us moms who work now are doing so because that’s the only way a family can send their kids to yeshiva.February 28, 2011 4:06 am at 4:06 am #863782
please pardon the interruption to your question..
I was just reminded how when we lived on the top floor of a 5th floor walk-up, across the street from Prospect Park, my Mother, a’h, used to tie some money in a piece of paper (probably a quarter) & throw it out the window to me. .. we’re talking like early 60’s.February 28, 2011 4:44 am at 4:44 am #863783usbaersMember
aries: re the dentist: i remember the dentist coming to our school and giving us toothbrushes and some little red pill that would stain our teeth where we didn’t brush well. It didn’t taste bad, either, but the dye was probably carcinogenic! A shame, it was a great motivator.
Also the TB patch test was given in school. We would watch for those bumps, fascinated, and try to guess if any of us would have to move to Arizona or wherever those sanitoriums were, like Annie Sullivan (sp?) and her brother Jimmy in The Miracle Worker (which we all had to read for class).February 28, 2011 10:17 pm at 10:17 pm #863784apushatayidParticipant

We used to laugh so hard at abbot and costello and the old time radio shows (my parents used to play them for us even though they were before my time). I showed my kids the ‘who’s on first’ clip but it wasn’t the same.March 1, 2011 3:45 am at 3:45 am #863787
Who’s on first is a classic and always will be. Every true comedian will try to do a version of it. You just have to know how to deliver it.March 1, 2011 4:24 am at 4:24 am #863788March 1, 2011 4:38 am at 4:38 am #863789

Along with The Feenjon, remember The Olive Tree?
Those were the good old (college) days when you could have a great time sitting with friends just sipping a warm cider and listening to a solo guitar player singing Israeli folk songs…March 2, 2011 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #863800
Yup, if you went to the village it meant you went to Cafe Feenjon or the Olive tree.March 2, 2011 7:38 pm at 7:38 pm #863801

AinOhdMilvado – I still have a vast record collection including a rare private album of Simon @ Garfunkel – rally for Gene McCarthy rally at Central Park.March 2, 2011 7:57 pm at 7:57 pm #863804
I was, and (forgive me) still am, a big Simon and Garfunkel fan.
Anyone remember the Israeli duo called The Parvarim?
They made an album of Simon and Garfunkel songs that they translated into Hebrew. I still have it. It was amazing, – it sounds exactly like Simon and Garfunkel but, as I said, in Ivrit…

Pirogen was what my wife ordered at Farm Food too.
My friend got married at Farm Food; halavai if we could have weddings like that today, we’d be just as happy and save a bundle too.

“Remember the tiny deli on Broadway and 48th(?) run by an elderly chossid; the only fleishigs near Times Square…”
Yes, I do remember the place, but not the name.
There was also a dairy place I think, also on B’dway within a few blocks of this fleishig place.
Anyone remember the name of that one???March 21, 2011 3:57 pm at 3:57 pm #863811A Woman Outside BrooklynParticipant

Who remembers when:
You actually dialed someone’s number on a rotary phone?
“Hanging up” meant suspendin the phone on its cradle?
The area code for the entire NYC was 212?
The newest recording medium was the eight-track?
Cuomo was governor of New York State? (Oh, that’s right…)
You had to stop at a gas station to ask directions?
There were earphones but no iphones?
Going online meant that you had to wait for the people ahead of you?
A web site was removed with a broom?
A desktop had paper on it, a notebook had paper in it, and a laptop had a baby on it?
A printer worked for the newspaper?
A monitor would tell on you to the teacher if you misbehaved?
A hard drive meant up a steep hill in an old jalopy?March 21, 2011 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm #863813eclipseMember
