TBT Throw Back Thursday This Day in History: Mother's Day, Coca-Cola, The US Post Office and More


On this day in history, 1794, the US Post Office was established. Since that time, the cost of one postage stamp for a First Class letter has gone up several times. However, through it all, I for one am happy that they are still around. I am a seller on eBay, and if it were not for the USPS, I'd be paying a lot more to have my packages shipped....  Well, usually that is.  Sometimes other places beat the price.

In 1886, a pharmacist named Dr. John Styth Pemberton invented the formula for what we would eventually call Coca-Cola.

1914 - The United States Congress passed a Joint Resolutionthat would designate the second Sunday in May as Mother's day.
