Oakie & Duchess' SW Corner

Vol 6, Iss 49

Pioneers, Peasants, Peanuts and Christmas holidays... What do they have in common? We are still researching those possibilities for future items of interest. By the way, did you all try out the Texoma Peanut Company of Madill, Oklahoma -- Order Your Oklahoma Peanuts Today! We ordered some Raw peanuts from them last Friday or was it Saturday. Anyway, it takes about 5 to 6 working days for shipping. We received our order yesterday just in time to try them out in the recipe that our cousin Stan Paris sent us a few months back. You can check out that Peanut Brittle recipe in our ParisTimes Pioneers Cookbook - Sweets Section.

1930s Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC)

Vol 12, Iss 23 United States - The Depression and Dust Bowl era of the 1930s had the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) that gave young men guidance, hope and pride. Many of those CCC workers went into the armed forces during WWII. The CCC workers and their families brought about a pride in our environment and preserving it. Do we need something of this sort of Corp today?

What is the address of this house? I used to know of a mansion on Locust street, but I thought it was called the Ensor mansion. South side of Locust in yellow brick.

The Day Japan Bombed Oregon (Sept. 1942)

Vol 12, Iss 24 Oregon - The Day Japan Bombed Oregon (Sept. 1942) Have you ever heard the WWII story concerning the day that Japan bombed Oregon? Is this for real?

Ellis Raymer submitted this interesting article about the only submarine launched Japanese bombing of the U.S. mainland during WWII. There was a special on PBS a few weeks back concerning that the Japanese had a plan after major naval losses that they planned to build super submarines that carried aircraft and could airlift bombs to a target and return to the sub. Then the planes would be put back into the sub and it would submerge and be hidden for it's next attack. The Japanese had plan to build fleets of these subs, but only three (3) were ever completed.

WWII (1942-1945) Balloon Bombs In America

Vol 17, Iss 3 USA - In the waning days of the Pacific War Japan tried a last ditch ploy to hit the United States with a terror weapon. That weapon was the Balloon Bomb, or Fugo. It was supposed to set fire to the West Coast and drop anti-personel bombs randomly on the U.S. In research after the war it was found that the Japanese built 15,000 of them but only launched 9,300.
