Found a neat site called The People History. I know there are bazillion history sites out there. This is a YAHS. Yet Another Historical Site. It goes back to the 1800s and brings you up to 2013. Yeah. They need to update for the missing years. I'm sure they will. Meanwhile I picked the year I was born and found that: ~ the first McDonalds was erected that year, ~ TV dinners appeared in the grocery stores, and ~ the first cans of Coca-Cola were sold. Isn't that neat? The year I was born, Americans decided to start developing unhealthy eating and drinking habits for future generations. I arrived to this world just in time!
Find Out What Happened on The Year You Were Born or the year you graduated

@LadyDuck - The shows were lots of laughs but I read that behind the scenes folks weren't always laughing. Lots of drama. Also, Lucille Ball was blackballed in the entertainment industry because her husband was a Cuban. They tried to link them to the Communist party and at the time there was a witch-hunt going on in our federal government with politicians trying to root out citizens who were possibly Communists or Communist sympathizers. It was a mess! The fact that the show was so successful is a real accomplishment!
