The whole income tax thing has only been around since 1923? That's amazing to me! I learn something new every day!

Hi Laura Cerrano 

Well you would think in 92 years, they could have figured out how to do it right!

I remember being very unhappy about the March 8, 1971 outcome of the Ali - Frazier fight.  I was, and always will be an Ali fan!

Barbie made her preview exactly one week prior to my sixth birthday, and she's all I wanted.  It took a few weeks, but I did get her.  Our daugher took great care of Barbie until my granddaughter cut her hair off.

Cool and interesting facts! Love that classic picture of Barbie. Was it really $3?

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat 

I remember that too and Ali was always the favored to win. I remember he used to come to the LA Marathon every year but suffers from Parkinson's Disease due to his boxing  career which has been so debilitating to his health.

Hi Bette Gottwald 

Me too so we must be the same age? I remember my dad was transferred to a new Air force Base in Minot, ND in December 1961. We had a Toyland there and it was the first time I saw Barbie and got one for Christmas that year. Everytime we would go to Toyland (almost every Sat.) my dad would let me pick out a Barbie outfit. Yes my Barbie, Midge and Ken all had spectacular wardrobes.

Hi Georgie Hunter 

I don't remember what the price was but that is probably accurate. The outfits were reasonable too. I loved Barbie!
