And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
I used to eat Grape Nuts.ReplyDelete
Me too. Used to be a special treat because they were more expensive. My folks couldn't afford them too often. Too hard on old teeth now.Delete
Why does Euell Gibbons have purple underwear?ReplyDelete
He has Grape Nuts.
I used to love this as a kid. Grape Nut Flakes didn't do it for me, however.ReplyDelete
Yum! Grape Nuts, big biscuit Shredded Wheat, and Raisin Bran were the only cereals we ever had at home. Grape Nuts are still excellent ... the flakes are not the same at all. Ditto with big biscuit Shredded Wheat, which I've been finding in stores again recently - was surprised they still make it.. It is so much better than the little spoon sized stuff.ReplyDelete
What a flashback! My grandfather ate the big shredded wheat squares in a bowl with warm water. Grape nuts was the only other “choice.” 1/2 cup of sugar and 15 minutes soaking in milk made them tolerable.ReplyDelete
1/2 a cup of sugar!! That's a lot....Delete
My teeth won't do GrapeNuts any more, my gut is not happy an hour after milk. and I don't usually add sugar to anything unless it's required..
Oatmeal with a banana in it is my favorite breakfast cereal these days.
Grape nuts!! They're not grapes, they're not nuts!! It's grape fun, you'll go nutso!!ReplyDelete
When CBS owned the Yankees, 'Ol Diz was the color commentator. Sang "the Wabash Cannonball badly, Reese "slud" into second...One of my HS classmates' father produced 'Ol Diz charcoal briquets. "Pardner, they're great!"ReplyDelete
Nice little crunchy accent to add on top of freshly-cooked hot oatmeal with raisins.ReplyDelete
"Drink more Ovaltine."ReplyDelete
Grape Nuts are like eating gravel.ReplyDelete
‘Hand me another ice cold Falstaff, Peewee!ReplyDelete
Yes, Grape nuts. Read the ingredients. Four simple ingredients, no sugar or anything artificial. Add some honey and you've got a breakfast that's almost as natural as old-fashioned Quaker Oats.ReplyDelete
And for those who say they're too hard, just let them soak in the milk for a few minutes. Problem solved.
