An advertisement from my childhood promised to remove "ring-around-the-collar" every time. A well-known infomercial of a decade or two ago demonstrated the stain removing power of an oxygen boosted powder. The products these commercials promoted seemed almost too good to be true and to be over-selling the abilities of their products. You may think otherwise. … Continue reading Removing the Stains

Both this bottle of hand sanitizer and the … Continue reading Spread Love
Recently, I learned about a man known as "Slick Willie" Suttton. William Francis Sutton entered life in 1901 and died at his sister's home in 1980 at the age of 79. Willie spent most of his life robbing banks, or to be politically correct - as a "financial withdrawal specialist." He spent time in prison … Continue reading Sutton’s Law
