“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down...build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence...help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln
Welcome to what is it Wednesday! Yes these are old potato chip cans. Potato chips came into fashion in 1910, with them being delivery by horse and wagon, or sold from under glass shelves. The first bags where made from was paper with the ends ironed shut or stapled. About 1930 they where sold in tin containers with paper labels, then during the war years, added to the scape pile for ammo. During the 50's they where sold in tin containers to restaurant and bars. The deposit on the tins where between $1.00 to $2.00. Big, big money for the time. The Superior tins I have came from a local potato chip company in Detroit. Today I have plastic bags inside with sugar, flour, bread flour, and crackers. I never had a bug problem in twenty years of using them. Great way to save money. They hold 25lbs of sugar, flour, or 3 lbs of chips. Check to see if you have a local chip company.

There hasn't been much said about the military mom. Yet no wars could ever have been won without her! A military mom is a teacher of independence, perserverance, discipline and integrity, possesses a great sense of humor and can make of any house, a home. She is a woman of quiet strength who has shaped the hearts of our Bravest Heroes and taught them to value peace above all else. The military mom is unshakable in love for her country. That is how she is able to let go of her most precious treasure. A son or daughter. We proudly salute and thank the "Military Mom".
