Mr. Beck, many times when I here songs from the 50's & 60's I always think of drinking a 'green-river' and munching on french fries @ Pete's.

Response to Dan: I remember Loyd's penny candy and also his beautiful ' 'hoppy-taws' I probably purchased 5 of these special items.  I loved hopscotch! 

Are you sure it is 'there are'?  I'm going to ask our daughter, who is a literature and high school English teacher.  She'll know.  You're probably correct because he's is speaking about 5 guys (plural) in the burger which would make 'there's -there is' wrong - it would have to be 'there are', but then again 'he' is asking the question which is singular - so would 'there is' be okay?  I'll get back to you on this one.

Kate, because of the pictorial context (Jeffrey Dahmer) I went with plural. He was not talking about the single burger but its content. On a different note, were Hoppy Taws uniquely a Utah thing?

I don't know if the 'hoppy taw' is a Utah phenomenon - i took some time looking up who made the first hoppppy taw and I kept coming up with a enterprize in SLC that makes these little rubber rounds.  I hope this helps answer your question.

Here's another thought provoking cartoon

Hoppy tawsare alive and well. A couple of Christmases ago I bought some for grandkids. And marbles. We had some tournaments.    They were underwhelmed.  Not as cool a long board, scooter or paddle board.  Basketball/soccer are also more fun outside.  Oh well

Anne, one word 'technology' - as a retired teacher I love the what technology has given to the world, what knowledge it can open up. But, I dislike way how technology discourages physical communcation,  how it shut-in gaming, texting, and anxiety in young and older students whe their device is taken away.   It's a pity!

So how many realize our high school has been part of so many famous people?  Roseann Barr, Chris Proctor, Martha Raditz and more.

Not sure why the image didn't show, but I copied & pasted a pic of a single Weegun. At least we're all on the same page with this.

Holly, I had forgotten about Weegen's - they were popular back in the 60's -70's and I had a pair that looked like the photo above.  Weegen's and Adlers 'wow' this takes me back in time.

ACME Rough Out.  What some of us wore as manly footware

I don't think Merlin Olson went to East. He's from up north and went to and graduated from Logan High. My grandson was just their studentbody Pres, 2019-2020. He was well versed in the alum history and Merlin was/is their star!! 

Philo T Farnsworth went to Rigby High.  

Derek and Julianne Hough were born in SLC but moved to Europe when he was 13. SLC does not hold fond memories for him. 

Steve Young was born in SLC but grew up in Conn. He went to/graduated from Greenwich High. 

The actor, James Woods was born in Vernal (shock) but....  moved to Rhode Island as a kid and graduated from Pilgrim High.

Were you kidding about these people? 

I remember Martha Radditz as a very studious, talented writer. I vaguely remember Roseanne.

I didn't mean to insinuate they all went to East - I was just posting a few photos of people that seem to be notable in today society that were born in Utah and or from SLC or East High.  Sorry to have steered you wrong.

What is Wikipedia?

Verdo, WIKIPEDIA is a place where deep cosmic truths are revealed.

Response to 656

I had a Doberman that loved chewing on Hoppy Taws.  Unfortunately, he had a habit of taking them whenever he came across one.  I remember a few times I had to give back, wet and tooth marked rubber biscuits to young ladies that were a bit more than irate about the felonious acts of my canine companion.
