Hurry! There’s Still Time To Get Tickets For 2014 North American Manure Expo

manure-expoSpringfield, Missouri is the place to be on July 8 & 9, 2014! Don’t miss this year’s North American Manure Expo.

We know your time is valuable. But so is every gallon and pound of manure being applied to your fields. You can’t afford to miss the 2014 North American Manure Expo, the only trade show on the continent to focus specifically on manure management and application issues. It would be a real waste to your wallet.

Bit Of History – 1986 Shuttle Disaster

I just uploaded four newspaper pages from the the day that the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded on take-off in January of 1986. The crew member who is most remembered is teacher, Christa McAuliffe. Also added a few odds and ends of local news. Of particular interest are tech-related stories from 1971 that feature the picturephone and bootleg 8-track tapes.

Classic Newspapers – The Big Snow of 1982

Most St. Louisans (at least the ones who are 40 or older) remember the snow storm of 1982 as the ‘Big One’ that virtually shut down the city. A week after the storm, the Post-Dispatch published a special section covering the event. All 12 pages of that section have just added to HotMeatloaf.com.

Classic Newspapers From 1981

STLPapers.epizy.com, my site for classic newspapers has just added 11 pages from March 31, 1981. That was the day that John Hinckley attempted to assassinate President Reagan outside a Washington DC hotel. Scanned pages from both the St.Louis Globe-Democrat and St.Louis Post-Dispatch are included.

Classic Newspapers – Iranian Hostages Released – January 21, 1981

Several pages have just been added to the classic newspapers at STLPapers.epizy.com. The date was Jan. 21, 1981 and the Iranian hostages were released as Ronald Reagan was sworn in as President. Six full pages from the St. Louis Globe-Democrat are available. Hard to believe that it has been more than 30 years since that day.
