We all need to stop & thank our grandfathers for the wonderful life we live today. Mine have gone on to their reward, but more to the point, thank the things invented years ago that we still use today. Be very thankful they are not new products just not being offered to the public. Imagine trying to sell an energy source that provides easily controllable heat for cooking or living, but it’s an odorless, colorless, explosive gas…
We’ve all seen video or movies with cars exploding. Yep, most of us drive around sitting on top of a bomb & never give it a thought. And can anyone believe our government would allow that today? Good thing it was invented before government grew into today’s behemoth.
Aspirin has been around even longer. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_aspirin
Many think it could not pass FDA standards. Bayer got into trouble for offering aspirin combined with a supplement into one pill. It’s legal to buy & take separately, but combining them is illegal?
We are allowed to use these products now because they are Grandfathered in, being established products, they don’t have to meet modern government standards. So my thought for the days is how grateful I am to not need permission to take aspirin. To not need a permit to heat my home or cook my food. Trying to be positive and not think about all the things our government ban’s, such as experimental drugs to people with fatal illness.
we moan & groan
and it goes on and on.
