--Ok, how many of you remember watching the old Tarzan films on Channel 9's "Million Dollar Movies"? Created by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Tarzan first appeared in the novel Tarzan of the Apes (magazine publication 1912, book publication 1914), and then in twenty-five sequels, three authorized books by other authors, and innumerable works in other media, authorized and not. Click on the photo. One of our favorite finds from our growing stash of vintage magazines - READ MORE HERE http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarzan

--A REAL TREAT FROM TOYS & STUFF: Ed is showcasing some of the many Marx/Marxville train accessories marketed for their line of 3-rail O-gauge trains. The line of toys and buildings is generally referred to as 'Marxville'. Lionel had 'Lionelville', K-Line had 'K-Lineville', and Bachman had their 'Plasticville' buildings - lots of villes out there in toy land!

  1. Thanks for the instructions on how to make the lamps. I've wanted these for a while but "store-bought" ones were just not in my budget.
