Ferdie to Bob

    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    Interesting. Quack remedies have been around for some time.


    We had a men's golf league for seniors that began play in the early 70's and called themselves the Geritol Gents. It eventually grew in popularity to about 70 members. Quite a few years after its inception, we received a "cease and desist" order from Geritol. The name of the league was changed to the G Gents and still exists to this day. I would have thought they'd be flattered and sent some free hats or samples or something.

    Sounds like the G Gents lasted longer than Geritol.




    Remember? My grandfather owned the company named JB Williams.

    He was fined by the FTC during the 1960's for making Snake Oil. Now, there is nothing wrong with making Snake Oil. You must put the FDA Disclaimer on the packaging. He didn't. Now anyone can sell anything, as long as it says that the product doesn't diagnose or cure ANYTHING because it hasn't been evaluated by the FDA.

    He influenced my decision to write Apothecary Cocktails because anything with alcohol is certain to cure something. http://www.qbookshop.com/products/212140/9781592335848/Apothecary-Cocktails.html
