          From: coreymac on 11/26/2002
      and From: tom on 6/1/2008

 The year is 1902, one hundred years ago.  What a difference
 a century makes.  Here are the US statistics for 1902.
  1. The average life expectancy in the US was forty-seven (47).
  2. Only 14 Percent of the homes in the US had a bathtub.
  3. Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone.  A three-
     minute call from Denver to New York City cost eleven dollars.
  4. There were only 8,000 cars in the US and only 144 miles
     of pave roads.
  5. The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.
  6. Alabama, Mississippi, Iowa, and Tennessee were each more
     heavily populated than California.  With a mere 1.4
     million residents, California was only the 21st most
     populous state in the Union.
  7. The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower.
  8. The average wage in the US was 22 cents an hour.
  9. The average US worker made between $200 and $400 per year.
 10. A competent accountant could expect to earn $2000 per
     year, a dentist $2,500 per year, a veterinarian between
     $1,500 and $4,000 per year, and a mechanical engineer
     about $5,000 per year.
 11. More than 95 percent of all births in the US took place
     at home.
 12. Ninety percent of all US physicians had no college
     education.  Instead, they attended medical schools,
     many of which were condemned in the press and by the
     government as "substandard."
 13. Sugar cost four cents a pound.  Eggs were fourteen
     cents a dozen.  Coffee cost fifteen cents a pound.
 14. Most women only washed their hair once a month and
     they used borax or egg yolks for shampoo.
 15. Canada passed a law prohibiting poor people from
     entering the country for any reason.
 16. The five leading causes of death in the US were:
     A. Pneumonia and influenza
     B. Tuberculosis
     C. Diarrhea
     D. Heart disease
     E. Stroke
 17. The American flag had 45 stars. Arizona, Oklahoma,
     New Mexico, Hawaii and Alaska hadn't been admitted
     to the Union yet.
 18. The population of Las Vegas, Nevada was 60.
 19. Crossword puzzles, canned beer, and iced tea hadn't
     been invented.
 20. There were no Mother's Day or Father's Day.
 21. One in ten US adults couldn't read or write.  Only 6
     percent of all Americans had graduated from high school.
 22. Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over
     the counter at corner drugstores.  According to one
     pharmacist, "Heroin clears the complexion, gives
     buoyancy to the mind, regulates the stomach and the
     bowels, and is, in fact, a perfect guardian of health."
 23. Eighteen percent of households in the US had at least
     one full-time servant or domestic.
 24. There were only about 230 reported murders in the entire US!

 Try to imagine what it may be like in another 100 years

Subj:     Father's Day Tribute
          From: mbucher on 6/16/2002 

 Paul Harvey's Annual Father's Day Tribute 

 A father is a thing that is forced to endure childbirth 
 without an anesthetic.  A father never feels entirely 
 worthy of the worship in a child's eyes.  He's never 
 quite the hero his daughter thinks he is, never quite 
 the man his son believes him to be -- and this worries 
 him, sometimes. 

 So he works too hard to try to smooth the rough places 
 in the road for those of his own who will follow him. 
 A father is a thing that gets very angry when school 
 grades aren't as good as he thinks they should be.  He 
 scolds his son though he knows it's the teacher's fault. 

 Fathers give daughters away to other men who aren't 
 nearly good enough so they can have grandchildren who 
 are smarter than anybody's. 

 Fathers make bets with insurance companies about who 
 will live the longest.  Though they know the odds, they 
 keep right on betting.  And one day they lose. 

 I don't know where a father goes when he dies.  But I've 
 an idea that after a good rest, wherever it is, he won't 
 be happy unless there's work to do. 

 He won't just sit on a cloud and wait for the girl he's 
 loved and the children she bore.  He'll be busy there, 
 too, repairing the stairs, oiling the gates, improving 
 the streets, smoothing the way.

Subj:     Male-Bashing Humor Chain Letter
          From: gheckman on 04/04/2000
      and From: ginafm on 5/30/2008

 Finally a chain letter worth sending!

 This chain letter was started in hopes of bringing relief to
 other tired and discouraged women. Unlike most chain letters,
 this one does not cost anything.

 Just send a copy of this letter to five of your friends who
 are equally tired and discontented.  Then bundle up your
 husband or boyfriend and send him to the woman whose name
 appears at the top of the list, and add your name to the
 bottom of the list.

 When your turn comes, you will receive 15,625 men.  One of
 them is bound to be better than the one you already have.

 At the writing of this letter, a friend of mine had already
 received 184 men, 4 of whom were worth keeping.

 REMEMBER----this chain brings luck.  One woman's pit bull
 died, and the next day she received an NFL offensive tackle.

 An unmarried Jewish woman living with her widowed mother was
 able to choose between an orthodontist and a successful

 You can be lucky too, but DO NOT BREAK THE CHAIN!  One woman
 broke the chain, and got her own husband back again.

Subj:     Aluminum Foil Box
          From: jbcary1 on 5/28/2008 

 This is good one!  I can't even believe it!  We learn 
 something new everyday!  I had to go into the kitchen and 
 check this out for myself.  Who ever looks at the end of 
 your aluminum foil box?  What a fantastic idea.  Now, if 
 someone would just make plastic wrap that didn't stick to 

 I've been using aluminum foil for more years than I care to 
 remember.  Great stuff, but sometimes it can be a pain.  You 
 know, like when you are in the middle of doing something and 
 you try to pull some foil out and the roll comes out of the 
 box.  Then you have to put the roll back in the box and start 
 over. The darn roll always comes out at the wrong time. 

 Well, I would like to share this with you.  Yesterday I went 
 to throw out an empty Reynolds foil box and for some reason I 
 turned it and looked at the end of the box.  And written on 
 the end it said, Press here to lock end.  Right there on the 
 end of the box is a tab to lock the roll in place.  How long 
 has this little locking tab been there?  I then looked at a 
 generic brand of aluminum foil and it had one, too.  I then 
 looked at a box of Saran wrap and it had one too!  I can't 
 count the number of times the Saran wrap roll has jumped out 
 when I was trying to cover something up.
