Friday Night Flashbacks

While much of the blogosphere is hammering away at politics or the economy, we’re keeping things light and fluffy here at Friday Night Flashbacks. So fluffy, we’re doing them early in the morning again.

Today's commercials, like much of America, are so in your face. I recall a different time, when subtlety and simplicity were the norm. That said, that doesn't mean stuff they were selling was any good for you.

Of course, some of it was supposed to be. Just ask Mikey.

Big Mac, cigaretts, sugary cereals: how ironic to see commercials positioning their products as good for you.

Glad to hear Dori is improving and happy. Jim, you seem to have more good days than bad when it comes to running. May all your worries be that small.

How interesting that Fred Flinstone was used to market Winston cigs...
Quite "harmless" ......
Now-a-days, cigs can only advertise on print media... No more child cartoons I guess!
Have a great week restin' up for the race! (Isn't it next wkend?)
Oh yes! very important: Happy B-day to Dori !!! So happy for her and all of you!!
