Name Brand Recognition
« on: September 04, 2017, 09:02:47 pm »
   Ever think about how many poplar name brands become synonymous with that product or service? It results in great advertising. For example how many of you ask for a Kleenex instead of a tissue? In the UK I think they still Hoover the rug. Dad said when he was a kid if you were going to buy a new vehicle you'd say you were going to buy a new Ford even if you were actually buying a Chevy or a Packard. When I was a kid in NW Fla Coke (Actually we called them CoColas) meant a soft drink. You'd tell the vendor you wanted a CoCola and they'd ask "What Kind?" and you might say RC or Pepsi. A Frigidaire was the same as a refrigerator - of course back then some old timers still just called them an ice box.

   If any of you can think of other items go ahead a post them here for others to take a trip down memory lane.

   Well, I better go LogRite me a couple of red oaks on to the mill and get back to sawing.

Don't know if this fits but we would always say "a pack of nabs". Back in the old days you were getting crackers with peanut butter in the middle.
Give me a new saw chain and I can find you a rock in a heartbeat.

When I was growing up, a SLED was a platform with 2 steel runners under it, a steering handle up near the front and a rope attached for pulling it back up the hill after the run!

SLED, aka Flexible Flyer!
