Why are you reporting this puzzle?

1954 included the popular T.V. show "Father Knows Best", Elvis Presley cut his first commercial record, Time Magazine featured Willie Mays (The "Say Hey Kid") on its cover, Marilyn Monroe vied with Lucille Ball for the "most newsprint covers" and in Oct. 1954, Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color or The Wonderful World of Disney first aired on ABC, the black & white show focused on the forthcoming amusement park in California in the episode "The Disneyland Story." The event made the cover of the TV Guide that week, as pictured above. A new trend also started called 'DIY' or "Do It Yourself" projects as families wanted to improve their homes and do their own maintenance . Car engines continued to get bigger and more powerful and gas cost 29 cents. Following the discovery of a vaccine against Polio, the first mass vaccination of children begins. Brown v Board of Education makes segregation in US Public Schools Unconstitutional.

All in all...I would say it was a very good year! :)

Hi Judy, Lots of Laughs about names My first grandson who has lived with me since he was 1 year old now 18 teen (Problems between mum and dad) but no matter. His name is Morgen a German name for morning as he was born in the morning and he will respond to be called morning or Morgen his school mates called him by his nick name of Clive as it was his second name. I call my wife Kays as that I thought she said when I first met her when we were teens but it is not her birth name and even her Mother called her K's after I married her.LOL!!!

jals

I don't know any Clives. I do know of a town in Iowa named Clive. Names can be very faddish. There were lots of Sues, Loris, Debbys and Kathys when I was in school. We are expecting a grandson next Spring. I am excited to see what they will name him.

mackabroin

yes clive.......I only know one clive here...and he was much older than I....like one of my parents friends....we called him uncle...but he was just a friend my dad and mom went to shcool iwth

Hi robin (Mackabroin) do love that Scottish name. Yes I have met three Robins but all men and only one female Robyn. So there you are also my name is quite rare in the UK.

mackabroin

jals

Isn't that funny? My name is Judy and in all my years of going to school, there were no other Judys. Now that I'm older, I've come across a lot of them.

Hi All! :) ~~ Robin, that's great that you got all those comics & magazines! Very lucky! I loved watching all those original Disney episodes on Youtube...very addicting! (My mother was born in 1943) ... she remained 'young' her whole life :))) ♥

CJ45

jals

You can spend hours on the internet. While it does have some drawbacks, I love the information that is readily available to anyone with a computer and internet.

farrell

Oh, there are fantastic 'freebies' all over YT...sometimes it takes a little searching, but it is definitely worth it. Great stuff for kids of all ages as well! ♥

jals

Lori, I didn't realize they were on youtube. Will have to remember that when my grandson comes to visit.

farrell

Oh, I still love Lucy too! When I was doing this puzzle, I watched so many of the original TV Disney shows...free on YouTube. Spent hours there. :) Thnx Judy.

jals

I had an older sister born in '54. I loved Lucy! Still do! Loved Disney on Sunday nights.

farrell

CJ45

Thee Hee, and I know what you look like remember and you are stunning. LOL!!!

Jumble

CLIVE!!!! You little Pinocchio! Your nose grew so much it made it's way down South, and nearly poked me in the eye!!!! Elvis was my much much older sister's idol, but then she never did have any taste.☺

farrell

Clive! How dare you! Irene is 26!!!! and I remember Elvis too! LOL !

farrell

That sounds fantastic Dave ☺ It is nothing like that here!

CJ45

But truth never harms Dave. LOL!!!

djp

Careful Clive, Irene might hunt you down and make you pay for that comment !!!

CJ45

Oh dear, got quite carried away then, sorry super collage Lori I remember Elvis Presley as would Irene (Jumble) as she is a lot older than me.

CJ45

Petrol is about £1.14 pence a litre here in the UK. There are 3.7 litres to an America gallon.
We used to pay a lot more till the oil war started.
1$ = £1:30 at present.
Enjoy filling your car with petrol oh by the way diesel is more expensive by the litre, than petrol.

djp

Oh -- you are welcome anytime Lori !!!

;o))))

AND at most grocery stores we have both parking lot attendants (guide you in and out of spaces, retrieve shopping carts, etc.) and grocery baggers at the checkstand, who will also carry your purchases out to your car if you need help!! Most are retired volunteers who work for tips only,

farrell

Really Dave?? I have never had an attendant do anything but pump gas! Most stations around here don't even have those DIY window wipers any more. (*note to self - move in with Dave)

Mags, those grocery points really do add up...saves a lot. (But around my way, you have to go to a certain station to use them...9 miles away.) :)

djp

Gas runs about $2.60 a gallon here, but we DO have attendants who also wash your windows, check under the hood, tire pressure . . . .

farrell

Thanks Maggie! ... "attendants"..???? (ha ha) Really..under a buck for a fill? And those cars were huge back then! AAhh...'Good Times'....and Mags, and I'd be happy to tutor you! Se agapo! ~ Lori :)

nette10

Thanks Nette! So glad you liked it. BeFunky is easy...and apparently addictive! :)) Have fun...if you need any help, just send me one of those @ thingy's, and I'll be glad to help if I can.

nette10

This a grand '50's post, Lori...... I'm gonna check out the befunky site! :o)

farrell

I thought you were CJ45(Clive)...I'm sorry! And still, yes, gas at only 29 cents...I have never seen! I love the fashions of that time also. Thanks for commenting CJ59! ~ Lori

Wish things were the same as they were back then!!!!!!

farrell

My pleasure Dave! :)

djp

A busy year -- thanks Lori !!
