Wild Westerners & Tubers As Toys

The past is back for its daily spotlight so you can take a moment away from today's craziness and slink into the comforts of before.

Guess the historical figure

Who am I?

While few female folk heroes arose from the Wild West, I made a name (and a nickname) for myself. As a companion of Wild Bill Hickock, I even got a comfy role in his traveling show, many years before I landed in HBO's Deadwood.

Blast from the past

That's Mr. Potato Head to you

In 1952, children were introduced to a new type of tuber, a playful one with removable eyes, ears, and hats. Mr. Potato Head became a sensation, going through a massive transformation in the process before becoming the grumpiest of Andy's collection in Toy Story.

On this day

Penny for your thoughts (via mail)

An email will never have the same emotional weight as receiving a letter by mail. When postage rates skyrocketed in Great Britain, a cheap, pre-paid alternative was proposed. On May 6, 1840, the first adhesive postage stamp accompanied mail correspondences.
