BEWARE: Yesterday’s Magazette is no longer associated with

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ned @ 8:43 pm

NOTICE: Someone is using my old domain name address and placing articles on their blog as “written by yesterdaysmagazette.” This is fraud. They were not written by me or yesterdaysmagazette or ever appeared in my old magazine or the url address that I discontinued two years ago. if you wish to see my real ym site go to:
It took me 40 years to build an excellent reputation for my copyrighted Yesterday’s Magazette and now somebody wants to use that name for his so-called blog which he doesn’t sign or even offer reader comments. Again: is no longer associated with me or my magazine or any information that appeared on my former website. It’s just somebody now using that same domain name for his or her advantage.

Yesterday’s Magazette 1973 – 2013


May 1, 2012

Yesterday’s Magazette Free Online and Digital Edition

Since 1973, this “Original Magazine of Memories” has taken you back to the thirsty 20s, the thrifty 30s, the fervent 40s, the fabulous 50s, the sensual 60s and the sequined 70s. YM has printed a multitude of memories from Vaudeville to Elvis.

Remember Mom in the kitchen cooking that fabulous holiday meal? Or, Dad taking the entire family for a Sunday ride in his new car? Or, Sis getting ready for her prom date? Your first car? Your first job? Your favorite holiday memory? Remember neighbors helping neighbors? YM readers remembered and they shared their stories with me and the world.

Since the very beginning, Yesterday’s Magazette has been about one thing: SHARING MEMORIES. For four decades YM has helped readers recapture that down-home honesty and goodness of the average American citizen with regularly printed issues. Nothing fancy … just plain folks who wanted to relate their own life experiences.

Yesterday’s Magazette’s motto has always been “Everyone Has A Yesterday” and I still believe everyone, regardless of age, has a cherished memory worth publishing. And, thankfully, YM has preserved thousands of these memories for posterity.

This has been a noble endeavor and I thank each and every YM reader who has contributed to this worthy cause. I hope all of you will continue to share your memories, if not within these pages then in another publication or in a book of your own. Future generations will thank you and be forever in your debt. And your life, or at least a small part of it, will live on for all eternity.

After more than 40 years of producing magazines and newspapers and meeting deadlines on a weekly, monthly, bi-monthly and quarterly schedule, I guess it is time for me to slow down a little and try to catch up on my own writing, art, music, and maybe even improve my golf game. (Scratch that last item. That would be an attempt in futility.)

Anyway, my nostalgic love affair with producing Yesterday’s Magazette has truly been a long and glorious ride for me. Of course, my deepest gratitude goes out to my talented contributing editors, Madonna Dries Christensen, Marshall J. Cook, and Carrillee Collins Burke, as well as to the thousands who have shared their lives with me and YM’s legion of loyal readers.

Enjoy our current edition now and remember to visit our website often.

Well, that’s it for now. Take care, and don’t forget to be kind to one another. Who knows? Your simple act of kindness may help change the world.
