Na parts washers and me being stupid not wearing rubber gloves and washing my old greasy clothes in the solution gave me the cancer that has been proven from the very rare form I have which is linked to excessive exposure to hydro carbons which at the time didnot even know what they were really
I also didnot use that oil other than a few times and only because I didnot think it took the grease off. In those days no such thing as msds sheets iif there was they was sure never showed us any I am seeing a third eye starting to form but buckmark and the boys tell me that is from the vaccines or maybe it is a pimple :D:D
I would say you look back and think the same as I do coming from the fishing industry half of what we used every day can no longer even be on a site let alone used by people
take care

found these old bottles recently
The tall Pepsi is a returnable bottle probably from the 1970's though maybe into the 1980's. I know because of the ceramic label. The stubby beside it is a non returnable bottle, but I don't remember us using them for Pepsi in the Maritimes. I recall Pepsi always having distinctive molded bottles. That bottle would have had a paper label at one time and could be used for any flavour the bottler handled. It may well be that the cap is not original to the bottle.
I worked at Maritime Beverages who handled Pepsi, 7UP, Canada Dry, Sussex and Crush plus a couple other lines through much of NS and NB from 1977 until 1989.

Dude when I joined the mines we cleaned the grease off your hands every day before showering with transformer oil and guys slicked their hair back with it
Today is it called PCB's some plastic off wieners is the least of my worries :)
Yea. We would break old heating pipes with the asbestos insulation on them using a sledge hammer on the cast iron elbows and unions. Knock 'em down and throw the stuff around like it was harmless! Same with some of the old fiber ceiling tiles.
Honestly at the time we thought it was just harmless dust! None us us got lung cancer that I know of though. Well not yet anyway.

Also worked with contact cement and other adhesives and paints. Some days I swear I was high as a kite and could taste the fumes!
Ahh the good old days!!

Now I'm starting to feel old. I remember most of these things mentioned. The covers on the milk and cream bottles would freeze in the winter and lift off. The empty bottles could be found in the fields filled with nesting mice. Curds were one of my favourite foods. I remember my father stopping at Joe Caffiers store at the Shacks in Bras D'or and picking up dried caplin and buttermilk. We shared them on the way home from hauling coal. My introduction to the man's world. Bread and molasses was a staple. Blood pudding was a favourite of mine. I would kill for for a roll of maple leaf pudding today. I'm so glad I grew up in those days.

My introduction to the man鈥檚 world was the afternoon my grandfather took me mackerel fishing off the old breakwater wharf in Port Hilford. I was maybe thirteen or so and he took out his pocket knife and cut off a chunk from a twist of chewing tobacco and said, 鈥 Here ya go son, chew on this and spit out the juice into the water.

I know you can buy snuff in a tin today but I do not think you can buy a plug or a twist of tobacco. He would buy a tin can of them, perhaps a dozen to the tin. Definitely not food but went into your mouth so鈥.

My mom would buy a black or blood pudding and a white pudding. I preferred the black one. Also I remember pickled or jelled pigs feet or pork hocks in a large jar. I loved them. Another one of my favourites was Nestle鈥檚 Quick
Chocolate milk mixture, just add milk.
Smoked kipper snacks in a can with a pull tab.

I used to eat fried blood pudding.....till I saw my aunt making blood pudding, AFTER I witnessed her diving down on the freshly killed beef ! Soon as it hit the slaughter house floor, she was down there, with her buckets in hand to capture the bright red life juice from its neck !!!!
I never ate the stuff again.. to this very day !!!!

Old macdonalds twist I think you are talking about it was like being on cocaine if you were a coal miner we all used it
As I aged I switched to the fig of club ( milder) and then the bag of red man
Looking back they were cancer sticks and I stopped in maybe 95 after my best friend at the time who was a huge chewer died of throat cancer That being said if you didnot chew in the pit you were a pussy and they made no bones about saying it here boy put some hair on your gonads and get rid of that gum this will make a man out of you ya maybe after you puked for the first week :( and sweet jesus if you ever made the mistake of swallowing it best just sit on the toilet for a few days

I was going to mention Beep but you beat me to it 3macs1.
I couldn't get enough of that stuff as a kid.
My Mums version of slumgullion, mashed potatoes, hamburger, covered with a can of spaghetti.
We made it only once for our kids as they thought it was disgusting.
One of my fav's growing up, and did it once or twice at the hunting camp.
