I like to post a joke, to start someones day off with a smile. Also to write about my family, friends, cooking, hobbies and etc.
These are excellent Patty.. my how times have changed.. I am going to email your blog link to my niece who is a hospital pharmacist. I know she will find this very amusing.
Those were the days!!!Hi Patty, I hope you are OK, sorry I have not been around for a while but I want to try and get back to blogging every day again now we have moved house.I hope you and Abe are keeping well, shake Abes hand from me!Lovemartin
Wow, I've never heard about this before! And even the Pope carried a bottle of that wine with him? And teachers drank it for maximum performance? And.....gee, you are right, they must have been the Good Old Days. Everyone felt good all the time. Haha.We had a beautiful day today on the river, but tomorrow and especially Monday we're to have torrential rains! Don't know how that will work out for a cook out! Guess everyone will have to bring along their umbrella's. Haha. We'll just have to wait and see if the forecast is right. Nature has a way of changing one's plans!Hope you've had a good Saturday.Renie
I have seen these same ads in some old catalogs I have collected. Hard to believe isn't it...but it is true.I think paragoric was used when I was small. Potent stuff!
That's a very interesting post Patty! I didn't know that so many drugs were used.Thanks for your visit! Have a great Sunday.
Old days always - The Best.Present days materialistic which makes life breathless. I wish wishes were basics only.
Oh Wow...I'm in awe at what they produced back in those days :)
Thanks for your visit Patty! My legs didn't hurt after the cycling, only my right knee is swollen, but that's because I polished the parquet in the livingroom. I get treatment by a physio therapist.
very interesting...true then that we are all but drug addicts.hehe!!!i specially liked cocaine for tooth aches....may be it would make the dentists more popular if it was used today.lol!!!!
Did anyone live through to tell of the cure? Looks like everyone was a high as a kite including the Pope!!Fantastic bit of research Patty.Love Granny
Blimey Patty. Uncle Tom passed these on to me and they really made me laugh. Its amazing what they got away with eh? I wonder what the infant death rate was in those days with all those concoctions...
Holy Moly! That's just crazy! "non addictive" heroin... Too funny!
Yes but they didnt have much to cure other things, like pennicillin, etcgreat post
I had no idea these drugs were even discovered back then.No wonder it was called the good old days.Gives a whole new meaning to my good old days. Maybe they weren't so good after all.
When I use to bottle hunt, we found medicines like these, they still had a little left in the bottom and did they smell strong. Very nice post and very educational.
OH Patty.Sitting here showing hubby.LOL he says the bottom one is 90 proof.Telling mom on the phone at this moment.She remembers Paragoric!LOL
Paregoric was still available when my kids were born (1955-61). A drop dissolved in water was great for colic.
