Oh, Postum! How sad it is that they don't make it anymore! We drank this a lot when I was growing up and I still have been drinking it over the years. I have a little bit in the bottom of a jar which I have't wanted to use yet! Lucky Julie has a whole jar of it at her house! Apparently they still sell it in Canada, but I won't be going there any time soon!

The Improvement Era
The other day I ran across an old Improvement Era magazine that my mom gave me many years ago. It is dated March 1955, which is my birth month. This is the magazine that the Church published before the current Ensign. It has been neat to read through it. There are articles by David O. McKay, Joseph Fielding Smith, and the incredible Hugh Nibley. There are Richard L. Evans' The Spoken Word messages from his weekly broadcasts with the Tabernacle Choir. This magazine has poems, recipes, and most incredibly- advertisements! Our current Church magazines have no advertisements at all. It is like a blast from the past to see these old ads!
