`you're absolutely right, Addie..........and now as `i listen to a violin being violated thru the walls (`i know they have to start somewhere ``:).......something else came to mind...........when I was student teaching my mentor teacher used to let her second graders (aged 7) string cherrios on a string for their birthdays...........the kids loved it:the stringing, wearing on a colorful piece of yarn, and then munching throughout the day..........

The US has some very large supermarkets. The sad part of that is there are whole aisles dedicated to overloaded sugary cereals with box designs aimed at children. No wonder we have a problem with overweight lids.

If they were in the house, sliced bananas over your cereal.

Poor Charlie, you have been through some tough times here in America. Alas, all is well now I hope. Get a box of Count Chocula and pig out! You will feel better when you get to drink all of the sugary chocolate milk at the end of the bowl.

Never heard of it. If you do, take a picture.

Frosted Flakes or whatever cereal where you could send away for and got a car you could assemble, and then run it into the wall and it would break apart, then you could put it back together again. That was kinda neat. Or, a submarine that worked on baking soda.

The small plastic break apart cars you could send away for. I wonder if that wasn't a subliminal message to us back then about car safety.
