davknight comments on Apr 10, 2019:
Once upon a time, brothels could be found in every city and town in America. But then, the Methodists, Baptists, Anti-Saloon League, and Temperance Union moved in. And community life changed. No longer could a town remain half Methodist, and half sinfulness and damnation. The bordellos, 'sportin parlors', and other dens of iniquity were shut down. No longer could a farmer, or worker, bring his thirteen-yr old son to a kindly, understanding madame, to break him in on the birds, bees, n sech! (This was how many a farm boy lost his virginity in the old days). There are still traces left, here and there. I know of one Colorado town, where a nineteenth-century bordello is now part of a community college campus. In another Colorado town, one can see 'cribs' (shantys where independent prostitutes practiced their trade), that now serve as storage sheds in residential backyards. Originally, they sat directly opposite a railroad workers camp. And in the town of Milliken, Colorado, many of the streets are named after prostitutes who once plied their trade there.

davknight comments on Apr 9, 2019:
The rivers were the "highways" into the interior, in those days. And if you were a Jesuit, or voyageur, wanting to travel from Quebec to Michilimackinac, you paddled your canoe up the St Lawrence, to the mouth of the Ottawa River (marked Oulacuase on the map). Then, up the Ottawa, to nearly its headwaters. Then, you portaged ten miles or so, to the little stream connecting with Lake Nipigon. Then across Lake Nipigon, to the river leading into Lake Huron. Then, across Lake Huron to Michilimackinac. ( The canoes in common use were big 16 and 32-man birchbark canoes). Why all the zigzagging? Because you wished to avoid the Iroquois (who weren't real partial to Frenchmen), and because you can't paddle up, and over Niagara Falls.
I thought this was interesting to see how "the Mitten" state doesn't look too much like a mitten. ...
davknight comments on Apr 9, 2019:
This is a copy of a French map. English maps were just as bad. Europeans still had a lot to learn about North American geography. For example, in 1675, the Frenchman, LaSalle, took a famous canoe trip, down the Mississippi River, to find out whether it emptied into the Gulf of Mexico, or the Pacific Ocean!

Twenty years ago, a creative writing teacher told me my stuff was so bad, it reminded her of something Charles Bukowski would write. Well, I had heard of Bukowski, but never read his stories. One day, I was browsing in a local library, and ran across one of his books. On the first page I opened it to, was a poem entitled "Your Shit Don't Stink Until You Get In The Paris Review". Suddenly, I was flattered at having been compared to Bukowski!

Paxton and Gallagher was a wholesale grocery company, founded in 1879. They were also the makers of Butternut Coffee, advertised as "The Coffee that Won the West". Earliest known Butternut coffee cans date between 1910 and 1920. The carrying handle on the top was meant to make the can reuseable as a beer bucket, or a milk pail. Though there are quite a few Butternut cans listed on EBay, I was unable to find the one with the carrying handle. There are probably coffee can collector's groups out there, that could tell you more about it.

Well, one day, when he was at work, I took a garden shovel, and started digging a hole in the back yard. I dug, and dug, and dug, determined to dig though to China. (I wanted to see if the Chinese were really red). By the time my Dad got home from work, I had dug a fairly deep hole. Realizing it was his own idea, he didn't get mad. But he did make me fill it back in.

What is the personality of the Holy Ghost?
davknight comments on Apr 2, 2019:
Ever hear the one about the Three Jesuses of Kalamazoo? once upon a time, there was a State Mental Hospital in Kalamazoo, Michigan. In it, there were three patients, who each proclaimed themselves to be Jesus. To cure them of their delusions, the doctors decided to lock all three of them up, in the same room, for thirty days. At the end of the thirty days, they were let out. Whereupon, a doctor asked them if they still believed themselves to be Jesus. One of the three replied " Oh no! I'm the Father. He's the Son. And he's the Holy Ghost!" (This is supposedly a true story, I heard in abnormal psych class).
