BARBIE DOLLS When she debuted in 1959, Barbie Millicent Roberts, an 111/2-inch doll, broke the mold.

resolutions that stick

Cue the pots and pans. The new year has begun and with it comes all the resolve we can muster to get fit, get organized, write more letters, visit more friends, travel to more events—do more of everything. But I have to ask: What’s the big rush? I have resolved to start the year at a slower pace and take things one day at a time. Living in a state where ice, snow and the occasional lake effect can alter my day-to-day routine in a jiffy, slow is my best option—on the road, on the stairs, getting in and out of the car.

1961 time capsule

Upheaval became the norm once the U.S. entered into a Cold War with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. East Germany built the Berlin Wall. President John F. Kennedy gave the green light to a disastrous Cuban invasion and sanctioned the early buildup of a U.S. military presence in Vietnam. Freedom Riders defied segregation in the South. Alan Shepard became the first American in space. On the lighter side, Procter & Gamble test-marketed Pampers in Peoria, Illinois. IBM’s Selectric typewriter became 1961’s iPad. And a talking horse named Mister Ed (above) got his own show. JAN. 20 John Fitzgerald Kennedy, inaugurated as the 35th president of the United States, challenges Americans to “Ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.” FEB. 12 The Soviets…
