Making Coffee in the ’60’s Was Tough on HouseWives

My favorite coffee is Folger’s K-cups. When I first found Folgers in the market selling K-cups, I would have sworn that they had gone out of business. They went from a fresh coffee to an instant brand back in the ’70s, and I’d have never guessed that they survived the rise of Starbucks, the K-cup revolution and other advancements in quick coffee. But they did, and now it’s great. But boy, were they sexist back in the day!

1958 Grundy Virginia’s Centennial Celebration

This video actually features footage of my Grandparents. It was filmed during the Grundy Virginia 100 year celebration in 1958. There are Civil War re-enactors, women parading around in Victorian era garb, coal miners, good ol’ boys, mountain men and city fathers. And the guy filming this seems to know absolutely everyone.
