I think there are two kinds of people when it comes to stuff and things. There are those who hate clutter and throw everything out, and there are the others who can't bring themselves to get rid of anything.

Sometimes that second group gives us a story to tell about long lost products. Recently, this was was the case of a woman who went viral on Twitter for posting a picture of her mom's Vicks VapoRub from the 80's.

Danbury Area Folks Share Pictures of the Ancient Medicine in Their Bathroom

According to Daily Dot, Heather Chacon posted a photo of her mother's container of Vicks VapoRub and the Tweet was the talk of the country for 24 hours.

We wanted to know from our readers, if they could top it? We posed the question on the Ethan and Lou Radio Show and all of our social media accounts, what is the oldest item/medication in your bathroom? The responses were impressive. 

In my opinion these should all be destroyed. You can't trust today's youth to not turn this into a social media challenge, the "Eat Grandma's Old Medicine Challenge," could be the most deadly in U.S. History.

Reflecting on 9/11 on the Streets of Danbury Helped Me Put Things in Perspective

20 years later, I can see the events of the day unfolding before my eyes like it was yesterday. On any normal day, I try and put the tragedy out of my mind but whenever the anniversary of 9/11 comes around I try and reflect on it, remember the fear, anger and sadness we all experienced that day. I also use it as a teaching moment for my young children, it's important they know what this did to us as a country and who we became in the aftermath of the tragedy. Thinking about 9/11 this past weekend had a profound effect on how I see my life and interact with my loved ones.

Most everyone in Danbury knows about, or has heard of the catastrophic Hat City flood of 1955 where 87 people died. On the other hand, most people we've talked to don't know about the history of the flood of 1869. In "The Place You Live" segment that aired on August 31, 2021, I-95's former News Director Mike Allen shared his research on the failure of the Upper Kohanza dam in Danbury and what it meant for the people in Downtown Danbury that day. 

Exploring Beyond the Rusty Gates of Danbury's Oldest Cemetery on Wooster Street

I live just down the block from the Wooster Street Cemetery and whenever I pass, I am always struck at how odd it is. You have this quiet, beautiful place that is dedicated to the people who were buried there, in the middle of a busy city and almost no one ever goes there. I decided to go take a deeper look around and see what was beyond the iron gates and stone walls.
