From Wikipedia:

"French chemist Hippolyte Mège-Mouriés invented a substance he called oleomargarine, the name of which became shortened to the trade name "Margarine". Margarine now refers generically to any of a range of broadly similar edible oils. The name oleomargarine is sometimes abbreviated to oleo.

Manufacturers produced oleomargarine by taking clarified vegetable fat, extracting the liquid portion under pressure, and then allowing it to solidify. When combined with butyrin and water, it made a cheap and more-or-less palatable butter-substitute."


FYI - My mother always referred to it by its full name - oleomargarine. In Ontario and most other jurisdictions the dairy industry insisted that oleo margaine be white with the yellow dye capsule so that the public would not be fooled into thinking it was real butter. I think one taste would let you know in any case.

BTW - to all those posting on this thread - thanks a bunch for making me feel old!

Remember needing to get up to change the channel on the television? And TV was typically B&W, until you heard the bong-bong-bong sound that told you the show was going to be in "living color"? How about when you were the first family on the block to buy a television? Now, I have five TVs and two computers that I can use to watch video. AND, I can create my own television show... okay, so it's video on YouTube....

I distinctly remember at around age 3 when Daddy brought home our first TV. I watched through the picture window while he got it out of the back seat of the Studebaker. We only picked up one channel clearly (NBC) but could get the sound and "snow" on a couple of others. It seemed like most of the TV shows were westerns. I guess that's why I got hooked on horses!

Daddy had an expression I liked--he called toys "play-pretties."

I'm so glad I grew up when I did!

Sandra

The other day we ate at a real 'drive in' with car hops and everything. Wally's in Buckley WA. right on highway 410. It was good!

Do you remember Rumble seats, a fold up seat where the trunk would be. torpedo back cars, insul brick for the house, inner tubes for flat tires, 33 1/3 rpm records, Disk Jockeys, Teen Town on Saturday night admission was 25 cents. Cream top milk bottles, and Milk men who delivered glass bottles of milk to your door step. In winter, the cream froze and it lifted the paper cap right up away from the bottle and the first to get it got all the cream and everyone else got skim milk. Garbage collection that was actually picked up by the garbage men from the back yard. What about duck tail haircuts. Just a few more things from the past. Yours in Bolering. Jim

Our first colour TV had a remote control the size of a small brick with one button, when you pushed it a motor on the channel dial ( remember those?) would turn to the next channel as if by magic ! and we only had two channels, now that was surfing!

Wow those were the days. Now I feel old... our first colour TV didn't have a remote at all!
My son was laughing the other day at a TV commercial that showed the old style TV in the wood cabinet. He quieted down in a hurry when I told him when I was a kid everyone had TV's like that, and you should have seen the size of his eyes when I told him we didn't have a remote control! He said "how did you change the channels then?"

My wife was scolding the kids for not replacing the cordless phones back on the chargers.
I said to the kids, in our house in Ireland we had one dial phone, it was on the phone table in the hall near the front door......they looked at me as if I was from another planet.
Hey at least we knew where the phone was, I always say the trouble with portable phones is that they are portable.
