Notebook
Ida Risser
The past century has seen
many changes. Not the least
among these are how we buy
things.
In the early 1900 s the sellers
went to the customers. Peddlers
walked from house to house sell
ing shoe strings, pins, handker
chiefs, and other necessities. The
McNess salesman and the Wat
kins salesman often stopped at
farms to supply the housewife
with vanilla, cleaners, and Must
erole to rub on the chests of sick
children.
Even in the 1950 s we had a
“ragman” who stopped regu
larly at our farm. He also bought
metal that had accumulated
around the farm. Twice a week a
delivery man brought bread to
our kitchen door. Then the price
was a small fraction of what we
now pay when we run to the
store for bread. One day unbe
knownst to me, my 12-year-old

Gam benefits for life with the Evergam
Aerobic Exerciser.
Major Benefits Experienced B
1. Ini
Insufficient oxygen in the blood can cause many health problems The vacillating motion
of the machine stimulates the sympathetic nerve and also expands the bronchial tubes
and reactivates the respiratory system'o increase the intake of more oxygen
2. Stimulates the lymphatic system.
Since the lymphatic system does not have a pump like the heart it depends on exercise
to pump the fluid through the lymphatic system to nd the body of toxins and waste
matter
Im
>ves the blood circulati
People who sit or stand on the |ob, or the elderly who just sit and lay around and don't
exercise, can develop a stagnant and sluggish circulatory system As a result, the
nutrition doesn't get distributed throughout the body that it needs and neither can it get
rid of toxins and impurities So health problems develop
4. Allans The Spine To Relieve Back Pain.
With the body reclining on a flat surface, no weight on the spine, and the back of each
foot laying in the cradle of the machine which moves left and right it wiggles the spine
like a fish swimming through water This oscillating movement helps to realign the spine
5. Increases the energy level.
The controlled oscillating movement stimulates the whole body including the immune
system This can result in increased energy and stamina When a person is tired, a few
minutes on the machine works wonders
5 minutes on the machine before going to bed can give you a relaxed restful experience
10 minutes or more in the morning can stimulate your body and get you off to a good
start for the day 10 minutes any time during the day can help tired and sore muscles
Instead of laying on the floor, older and overweight people can lay a board across the
bottom and full width of the bed and set the machine on it

older people who are overweight and can’t exercise.

daughtei ordered a lot of buns
for a birthday surprise for me.
Then a younger child became
sick and the party was almost
canceled.
In villages milk was delivered
early each morning. And,
icemen lugged blocks of ice to be
put in the icebox-before refri
gerators. My mother often told
me about the fish peddler who
came every Saturday night
blowing a horn to alert the
housewives of his arrival. Her
family usually bought oysters
for the evening meal.
Nowadays we go to the
seller-wherever his store is lo
cated. It might be nearby or
miles away in a mall. We still
expect service but it is not the
kind that we got at our doorstep.
Now I’ll get back to work on
my 18th braided rug. This one
will be blue, grey and red if I can
find enough material to finish it.
