It Came, It Thawed, It Conquered

Thanks to Rand Simberg at Transterrestrial Musings for the pointer.

I still remember as a kid being excited about nights when my dad had to work late, because it meant we could have TV dinners. I hate to think how that must have insulted Mom...

Funny; Even though Swanson may have dropped the name "TV Dinners" in '60 or '61, I grew up eating what my mother called "TV Dinners".

We were required to eat them on fold-out trays while watching TV... NEVER at the kitchen table!

Now I know why I've spent my adult life trying to learn how to cook a decent meal. They were godawful, weren't they?

I'll buy frozen veggies, but not a frozen meal. Them things'll tighten yer arteries like a vice on butter.

Does any one know the history of the spider pool estate. I had a friend who lived in the only building left standing at the time, We used to explore and collect the tiles that covered most of the structures. This was in the early 60's when I was in elementry school. In fact, I sometimes walked to school taking a short cut through the area. The place allways looked like it had housed some kind of cult (even to a kid in elementry school).

Anybody know anything about this?
