Speaking of PC ... it was a sad day when they changed "Ding-Dongs" into "King Dons".




And just how are "King Dons" morally superior??????? IDK.



And how did "Ho-Ho's" escape the dragnet? I suppose because they weren't called "Hoe-Hoes".


And while I'm at it ... TWINKies ... oh, nevermind ...

Budweiser's 3-year in the making, 2 times as much aluminum using, 6% smaller volume bowtie can got me thinking about New Coke, the Gold Standard by which bad business decisions are compared.

Remember New Coke? How long did that even last? 6 months?

It was either 45 or 90 days, don't remember which buy saw a show on the 80s a day or 2 ago that was talking about it

I still have an unopened can in my collection somewhere. I'm not so sure it was bad business with the frenzy it stirred up...

Came across this photo today ... a really nostalgic feeling, comfortable like an old shoe.

Wiki's page on Our Gang/Little Rascals is a good read too (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Our_Gang ).



Reading that wiki page now, I realize what a window the early series was into a time that was so much closer to the 1800's than to modern times .... both chronologically and as far as how ordinary life was ... a magical window into the past.
I remember sitting in the armchair as a very little kid watching The Little Rascals and being fascinated. Them and the Stooges too.

Chronologically, Our Gang, having started in 1922, was to the 1800's, say 1899; as us thinking of the year 1991 is today.
Same 22 year difference.
I know that sounds like an odd analogy, but I'm fascinated by everyday life from long ago. My parents ... grandparents ... great grandparents times. Most movies from that time had enough production behind them that the filming was effectively done with props and actors and to a degree "movie sets". Our Gang on the other hand was done with a low enough budget that you mostly see what everyday life looked like, as it was.

I remember running over to Canada for lunch, or just to shop for the afternoon. No passport, no hassle, no BS. Just $.75 over the bridge and back. It was also nice that Canada was a 40% discount to the USD.

That's for sure. I used to go all the time to the little Italy district on Erie Street ... often to Brigantino's for dinner and then to walk Erie and visit the little Italian shops and get an Ice Cream and coffee with my Better Half.

My other favorite place in Windsor was an old fashion British Pub in a big victorian house called Nisbet's. Every Thursday they had a great Celtic / British Isles pick up night and people would show up with instruments and just start playing. It was sooo good.
Now with the exchange rate not as favorable and lines at the border I haven't been to Windsor in years. Nisbet has been gone for at least 5 or 6 years.
