Wringer Washing Machine This used to be the height of household technology--a wringer washing machine. My mother had one until about 1972! (It was a little more modern than this type, though.) Mom wasn't alone. I recently read an article that said wringer washing machines outsold automatic washing machines in Canada well into the 1960s!

Pedal Powered Washing Machine Bart Orlando demonstrates that one person has the power to wash clothes in a pedal powered Wringer washing machine. The wringer eliminates the spin dry function, standard on modern washing machines. One person can do 1/3 of a normal load of laundry in about 30 minutes. An exercise bike is substituted for the orignal 2hp 110v electric motor. A fan-belt is rapped around the flywheel of the exercise bike and a pulley which drives the original transmission of the Wringer Washer. . . humm . .

The New Treasure Hunt Anyone else remember this wacky, syndicated game show? Airing from 1974 through 1977, it was sort of a cross between Let's Make A Deal and Deal Or No Deal. A lucky contestant chose one of 30 numbered boxes. A box might contain anything from a worthless prize (known as a clunk) to $25,000--a fantastic sum back then. After choosing a box, the contestant was put through an emotional wringer by host Geoff Edwards. This clip from 1976 provides a good example of what typically occurred on this show.

Youve Got Mail - Final Scene Ah, nothing beats a happy ending. This is the final scene of the 1998 Tom Hanks-Meg Ryan romantic film You've Got Mail. It's a modernized remake of a 1940 Jimmy Stewart-Margaret Sullivan film, The Shop Around The Corner, in which the lovers were pen pals. Set at a time when email was a novelty, Joe Fox (Hanks) and Kathleen Kelly (Ryan) begin a romance over the Internet without meeting one another. Complicating matters is that Fox's enormous bookstore chain is slowly pushing the small, beloved, family-owned bookstore founded by Kelly's late mother out of business. They despise each other, of course. An arranged meeting falls apart when Fox, who goes by the handle NY152, realizes his Internet love, whom he knows as Shopgirl, is Kelly. He does not divulge his identity to her, but the two slowly become dear friends once Kelly's shop is forced to close its doors. Fox sneakily and lovingly puts Kelly through the wringer before arranging another meeting at a New York City park. The final scene begins with Kelly awaiting the arrival of NY152 and realizing her Internet sweetheart is Fox.
