They talk a lot, don't they?

Mia: Is that a fact?
Vincent: No, it's not. It's just what I heard.
Mia: Who told you this?
Vincent: They.
Mia: They talk a lot, don't they?
Vincent: They certainly do.
Mia: Well, don't be shy, Vincent... what did "they" say?
- Pulp fiction (1994)

When I look at these pictures—I grew up just like this and can remember the good –bad . Economy was not all that great after WW2 and older parents still held on to the experience of the depression they grew up with their parents in the mid and late 30′s. Then when you had to live during the WAR TIME with books and allowed so much for the and that. It was not all that great and as the pictures look like WOW. Yes wonderful times when you car had to be maintained in your driveway, garage or under a pepper tree. Then oh yes what if you did not have the parts. Times were still very hard and difficult and it was not fishing for the fun of it, camping because it was so much fun. You did those things because it was a cheap way out. When you went to the store it was the basic products. Relaxation was a lb of coffee and a carton of cigarettes. You sat outside and looked at the sky and would dream of the better life. You hung sheets which you would spray with the water house and hang that over your windows and pray for a breeze. No air conditioning in the cars. you open all the windows and maybe hung your head outside. When you went somewhere you came home sweating and took a BATH on sundays only. Septic Tanks were expense to maintain.Then you cut alot of wood and pray to God you had enough for the winter season. When you cooked meals—your ate everything on your plate or had it for breakfast–reflection of difficult times. Your worn the same blue jeans with patchs along with your socks being mended for months and maybe years. You saved everything and I mean everything. If you torn down a building you pulled the nails out and spent the time getting them ready to reuse. You did not fill up the trash can without of waste because you pigged out and could not eat anymore., No these Pictures are reflections of some very difficult and hard times. Health care?. If you could afford an operation for things otherwise you would work until you died and that for the most part was around 45 to 55 years of age. Did not have alot people living into the 80′s unless they were farmers So going back as people do—Lets be really fair and talk about how it really was. Stories sound like fun. Cash for clunkers—- Those Clunkers would have been like gold to the majority of people. Thanks for you time-John Oen Eiden

Tom Ford’s Five Easy Lessons to be a Modern Gentleman

1. You should put on the best version of yourself when you go out in the world because that is a show of respect to the other people around you.

2. A gentleman today has to work. People who do not work are so boring and are usually bored. You have to be passionate, you have to be engaged and you have to be contributing to the world.

3. Manners are very important and actually knowing when things are appropriate. I always open doors for women, I carry their coat, I make sure that they’re walking on the inside of the street. Stand up when people arrive at and leave the dinner table.

4. Don’t be pretentious or racist or sexist or judge people by their background.

5. A man should never wear shorts in the city. Flip-flops and shorts in the city are never appropriate. Shorts should only be worn on the tennis court or on the beach.
