I'm in agreement about McDonald's in general. We do not frequent their 'restaurants', although I'm sure the girls sneak in when out and about.
The adverts are at least now for this market specifically, instead of us being palmed off with second hand, and they focus on the issues concerning people nowadays. More canny marketing.

That takes me back! Dirndl skirts, elasticated belts with huge buckles, bobby socks and anything else that we thought made us look like the American teenagers on the screen. Thanks for the reminder.

Oh, that took me back! I was only six, then, but i heard the occasional pop song on the radio! Love these old songs!

oh. my. goodness. I nearly fell off my chair, and at my age, that would not be a good thing!
Thank you for some sweet memories of a carefree time.

Thought for life

  • The House of Breath, William Goyen
    We are the carriers of lives and legends - who knows the unseen frescoes on the private walls of the skull?

Thinking about . . .

  • Daniel Klein, Travels with Epicurus
    I too listen to music more and more. Throughout my life, music has stirred me more than any other art form, and now, in old age, I find myself listening to it almost every evening, usually alone, for hours at a time.
  • Julia Blackburn, Thin Paths
    I began writing because I liked to write things down. I learnt foreign languages because they seemed to enter my head by a process of osmosis.
  • Joan Bakewell, Stop the Clocks
    I live contentedly alone. It's better that way and I am often thoughtful about what has been and what might have been. There are many like me.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Oh to be reborn within the pages of a book.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Why is it that we lose the things we love, and things cavalier cling to us and will be the measure of our worth after we’re gone?
  • Judith Kerr, Observer Magazine, 22 November 2015
    I don't believe in God. I find it much easier to believe in ancestors. I like to imagine they are pointing us in the right direction.

Don't miss a post!
