“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 friends to another What is it Wednesday. Both of these are waffle iron. Different from what we are used to seeing today, and a lot heavier. The one on the left is from Stroluminum, Detroit. This company made aluminum pot and pans. The waffle iron on the right is by Rey-O-NOC from Chicago, Il. They start out in 1853 and sold the company to True Value Brand (True Value Hardware) in 1962. Rey-O-NOC also made hardware, tools, cutlery, paints and sporting goods. This waffle iron is very heavy, sold cast iron with a patent date of 1-1908. Waffle made with both would only be 6 1/2" across. So when you take your frozen waffles from the freezer and pop them in the toast, remember how they used to be made. We do have it a lot easier today!

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".
