But I have a glass and wood washboard in the garage.
 
Do they still sell those eyelash curling things?
 
Shoulder pads.  (Wish they'd bring them back)

    If shoulder pads return they should be named Krystal & Alexis.

    Eyelash curlers are still around...but heating it with a blow dryer first... is a stressful thought. Mascara tricks!!!

      I'm doing the Sensa diet now.  I want to sprinkle it on Kraft Macaroni and Cheese.

      Al, My niece carries a 4.3 average and was inducted in the National Honors Society this year and she's afraid she won't be accepted.

      That's because when her sister applied to universities for her PHD she was turned down by many, including UCLA where she worked for them in the field in which she wanted her doctorate and received her masters.  That niece was finally accepted to Oxford which she really considered going to before the department at UCLA made a place for her.

      She's scared!

      Remember when there weren't courses to help you pass your SATs?

       
      mar52 --  Any thoughts on Sensa yet?  I've been very curious about it.  I've been dabbling in the latest version of WW, but think the "free" fruit is not really free weight wise, so would like another option.  Thanks!

        I agree. I stayed with the "old point" system when WW made the switch. I think they made it more for their own reasons (harder to calculate points on your own with the new point formula) so people stay "with the program" and rediscover it with a fresh new start.

        A new system item is usually always +1 in points vs. the old system (same food)...and I guess they figure more people won't indulge over the adjusted grace of free point fruit & vegetable...and much of it is full of fiber.

        I love WW because you get to eat anything. If I decide to be bad and have 12 points of candy for Breakfast...great. The rest of the day will be lighter...or go to the bonus point bank for a withdrawal.

            Sensa:  Expensive, $89 for 2 months and the ingredients seem like filler rather than something that would work.
             
            They are:Maltodextrin, Tricalcium Phosphate, Silica (I sold silica for the bottoms of fireplaces... It's SAND!) Natural and Artificial Flavors.
             
            It's supposed to work on your sense of smell.  My cookies don't last long enough for me to smell them!
             
            However, I've taken it for one week now and lost 5 pounds. 
             
            My theory is I want it to work.  I'm eating much differently which would probably work by itself but I need a crutch. 
             
            Maybe sprinkling it on WW food would be an added bonus.  The other night I sprinkled it on Nutrisystem pasta after doctoring it up with lots of spices, garlic and MORE Pasta!
             
            I'll see how much I've lost nearing the 2 month time period because it has an automatic renewal.  That's a scam used by many internet or TV sales companies because a lot of people don't bother to return things.
             
            The first part of the scam is their free offer.  It runs you $89!
             
            I'll let you know after one month.  I am not doing anything much different in the exercise department, but maybe I'll loose some of the upper arm flab when I get the kayak into the water.
             
            Wish me luck!

              Peoples Drug Store's in DC had soda fountains where you could order a Coke with a shot of chcolate, vanilla, strawberry, or cherry, or if you wanted, an everything Coke, 10 cents.

                I recall doing the Cambridge 'Liquid Protein' diet for awhile...lost 60 lbs quickly, but it damn near killed me and my already short- temper got much worse as the diet progressed.  Obviously it had short-lasting results.  But I am much easier to get along with now !! (???)

                  We had a newstand in my tiny town of 800 in the 1960's. You could get any newspaper or magazine and they had a short order grill where you could get burgers or Green Rivers! It was a big deal to bicycle into "town" when I was 14 and go there.

                    I  used to enjoy chocolate Cokes as a kid in New York.  I always wondered why the came out with bottled cherry Coke but never chocolate.

                      I recall some sort of diet spray that came in a tube like Binaca...that was supposed to satisfy the cravings for sweets. I think there was a chocolate flavor and some others...on HSN.

                      I've had my Connie Stevens Time Machine for at least 18 years. It was also on HSN. It works miracles for migraines...and it keeps me as young as possible....18 years later.

                      I saw the Cambridge Diet. I never heard of that one before a few days ago.

                      Good Luck Mar! I believe Patti Stanger (Millionaire Matchmaker) does Sensa commercials. She may work off calories screaming at people as well.

                        Anyone remember Ayds? Or all the "diet" snack products like Figurines that allowed you to get Sweet Revenge...on who?
                        Sweeta in the pointy topped bottle.
                        The taste of soft drinks after cyclamates and before nutrasweet that were made with sacchrine.
                        Grapefruit Diets.
                        Ear staples...tug on your earlobe and lose your appetite.
                        Hot wraps with the pads that you put in boiling water and sweat suits. Not the fabric tops with the hoodie.
                        Belt toning machines....probably still around at spas.
                        Hydrotherapy weight loss centers
                        PhenPhen
                        When Dr's put you on an amphetamines as a dieting aid.
                        The zone
                        Metamucil and Serutans was sold as as a diet product to drink before you ate.

                          There was also an acupressure ear device for weight loss back around 10 years ago. I read about Ayds a few days ago and wondered if anyone remembered them!!
                           
                          I was so excited today to find a product that I thought was forgotten at the Indian Cash & Carry now that I am on the Indian Food Diet until party #5 (less ingredients lower points)...
                           
                          Ancient Chinese Secret Pearl Cream!!! Just a different brand...
                           

                           
                          It smells so good I'll have to hide it. My Grandmother used the Nancy Kwan brand...and it's a nice find of a forgotten item.

                            Speaking of false eyelashes, I'd love to see them make a comeback.  The Carnaby St. look with the long curled lashes and a pound or two of mascara, throw in the long bangs and the mini-skirt...oh yeah, babe!

                                Doesn't taste bad!
                                 
                                Sweeta in the pointy topped bottle.  My grandmother used to use that.
                                 
                                Ear staples.. my best friend, Karen had them put in and she'd only press them when she didn't want to eat.
                                 
                                I did Phen Phen.  Lost 50 pounds with it.  It was amazing!  It also killed so I was lucky.  I also found those lost pounds.
                                 
                                My mother used to do a banana and milk diet.  Now she doesn't remember.

                                  I'd think lip staples would be more effective at losing weight than ear staples!

                                        Remember the child-friendly rides? I saw Popeye with an electrical cord around his neck...in Jersey City today. I wanted to wait to see who has been bad enough this summer to end up taking a cruise.

                                          Aren't you a bit far north to know about these things?    Gee, those were common when I was a kid, even in a low brow diner, they brought fan-folded 3" paper bowls full of warm water. About '68 or so they started giving out "folded fingerbowls". Southern speak for wet napkins.
                                           
                                          Dinner houses.
                                           
                                          older folks that called hamburgers, hamburgs or hot dogs, frankfurters.
                                           
                                          Fondue parties....those tiny hot dogs and sausages were in their hey day.
                                           
                                          Those adult games that came in felt covered books like bar sets popular in the late 60's. Wiff n Poof comes to mind as an adult only game.
                                           
                                          Men wearing turtlenecks and suits. B4 that the Nehru jackets. Same guys used hair spray. Real men wore black suits, skinny black ties, black rimmed glasses only if they had to, had a crew cut or flat top and angry at everything. Last seen voting for Nixon during his first term or Goldwater b4 that.
                                           
                                          Pixies, Beehives, and French Rolls
                                           
                                          Those little. triangular, side windows on the driver and passenger sides that opened and swung out to catch and focus air. There was always a hard button to push and a hard to lift or close catch lever.
                                           
                                          Ashtrays in chair handles, besides you with the sand or the trap door, on walls, even in bathrooms.
                                           
                                          Starburst type wall clocks.
                                           
                                          American "Modern" furniture with long, peg legs. Even TV's. The more spartan, the more modern until the scandanavian designs appeared in the latter 60's.
                                           
                                          Soap products sold to kids to get them to bathe. Mr. Bubble, All those canned,foam
                                          products, kids soap that had a cheap toy like a plastic ring burried inside. products that colored the bath water or were combined with a bubble bath.
                                           
                                          Whammo anything on TV. Boy this would have been one to see how they did their product testing and development. Take a water hose, bottle of red ink,bolt of plastic sheet, and some bells, and some string to an insane asylum and see what they do with it?

                                                  Sadly this is not usually finger bowl territory. But I'm addicted to setting the table. That's why my voicemail will be changed to "Thank you for calling Bamberger's table setting dept. For napkin folds...press 1..."

                                                      I think a wall full of silent butlers would be quiet.
