WITH A NOD TO BEING THOROUGH and a desire to entertain, we're returning to a previous topic and listing all the Burma-Shave slogans that once lined the highways. Arranged according to the decade they appeared, you'll find that numerous topics inspired their creators: historical events and characters, nursery rhymes and fairy tales, romance tips, and safety warnings.

CHRISTMAS THROUGH THE EYES OF A 40s-50s KID
Once more we welcome back our Chritmas series of years' past and explore a new topic in honor of Christmas season 2016.

This time, we'll contnue to investigate many of the customs whose names we'll recognize but, perhaps, not fully understand why they've played major roles in our celebrations. It's called, "Christmas Traditions & Symbols."

Posted: December 6th

HI Y & TRI HI Y PHOTOS
Have posted the pictures from our yearbook and would like help identifying those in the photos. Just send me an email (mckwd@aol.com) or a message through the website by clicking on CONTACT US at the top of each site page with "who is who." Thanks!

BURMA-SHAVE RETURNS
We're reprinting ALL of the slogans that were used. There are about 600 of them so we've arranged them according to decade, which in itself provides an interesting peek into the world in which they appreared. Enjoy these clever verses that once graced our highways.

You'll find them under "Special Series" listed in the left-hand column of this HOME PAGE.

HOW I GOT WHERE I AM
Still hoping you'll be writing your "story" of where and why you're living where you are. Some have chosen to write a lengthy narrative, which has been wonderful; but I fear it's frightened off others.

Please just share what made you choose your hometown to retire in; or if you're still working, please tell us where and what keeps you going. We'll take stories of any size - we just want to catch up on YOU!

You can email them to me at mckwd@aol.com or post them on "What's New!"

You'll find the answers we've received so far - How I Got Where I Am -  listed to the left of the HOME PAGE about half way down and just before "Special Series."

PHOTO GALLERIES
Classmates and guests of this site can now share photos on any topic they feel would interest the rest of us. Simply:

  1. Click on "Photo Galleries" in the column on the left side of the home page.
     
  2. Click on an existing photo show to enter a gallery someone else created.
     
  3. Go to the last page of pictures in the gallery and click on the "Create Your Own Photo Gallery Here" button at the bottom of that page.
     
  4. Follow the directions on screen to create your gallery of photos. Remember as always on this site, you must be able to find where the pictures are on your computer. In other words, what file they are in. Most will be in "My Pictures."

Only you can add photos to galleries you create, and all photos you add will be credited to you inside your gallery!

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW BUT ARE
TOO SHY TO ASK

We didn't have the "computer advantage" when we were growing up so many of us are a little timid when approaching this newfangled contraption. With that in mind, a new forum section entitled "All You Need to Know But Are too Shy to Ask" has been created.

The new feature has directions for many of the skills needed to take full advantage of our web site. It even explains how to print those directions so you can have them in front of you as you navigate into new territory.

A second feature explains exactly how to obtain additional help with any problem which may come up. It's really simple: just email me, as site administrator; and I'll get the answer straight from the experts at Class Creator.

 So now, with a little bit of determination, you can fully explore the site, send emails, reply to survey questions, comment in forums, and load pictures. Just click on the link below.
