    My mom has told me stories of the liquid propane stove she had before I was born. She said it burned so hot that you could hardly work in the kitchen, and you had to watch everything or the dishes would burn up before your eyes. I can imagine a bunch of house fires were caused by these oil/other gas monstrosities!!

    I remember the shoe polish coming in those kind of bottles. I used to watch my brother shine his black shoes with it and wished that I had black shoes to polish!
