There is a commercial for Pepsi that is all over the internet. It is very funny..and looks entirely REAL. Some are stating that is was not a real video but a made up one.Not the real Jeff Gordon driving the car. Whether made up or not, it is very entertaining. Is the purpose of a commercial to sell the product?..YES..is the purpose to entertain while selling the product?.. YES.. I think this commercial does both very well. What do you think?? It’s worth watching and seeing for yourself. The reaction of the salesman is priceless and if faked he really deserves credit for being an excellent actor.
I certainly am dreaming a lot of the time now days. Some good and some bad. Last night a show called PERSON TO PERSON came on CBS back in 1953. It’s a kinda re-make of an old show years ago. They take important people and have them show them around their homes. GUESS who was first.. GEORGE!!.. MY GEORGE!!..I have spoke of him here in my blog before, but in case you missed it..CLOONEY is the name! Oh you know I was right there glued to the screen. Seeing inside his Studio City home was a dream of mine. We even saw inside his refrigerator! No mention of his girlfriend either, which I thought was just fine! He got very quiet when speaking of his late aunt Rosemary..the whole family misses her a lot. I was amazed at the photos and collectibles he has everywhere in that home. In the video link above you can see some of his home. For those of us who always wondered..that few minutes was just great..and led me to some good dreams.
Sometimes life puts us right where we should be at the time. We wonder why, but GOD has his timing and we go where we are supposed to be. I have been dreaming of the old times with our other home and Mom and times that were only months ago.It seems to have passed so quickly and then again so slowly. So much has happened in that period of months. I have been what seems like on a journey of sorts, trying to see what is out there in the big world. Someone asked me about what my perfect home would be and what I would like to see in it. I had to stop and think about it.If I won the lottery and or got rich overnight I would certainly be ready to make some choices. I like certain things a lot,others I hate..so I guess I do have some ideas in my head. I love the water..the ocean , a brook, or a pond..any of those will do. I need some air and space and some green. So maybe this might fill the bill nicely to start
ahh..love that scenery!!. I guess it is just so calming to me. I would love ..no rain or storms..just calm and sunny almost all the time. Yeah that won’t always happen, but this is a dream home. I guess my style is coastal with tropical overtones. Winter here in Michigan makes one seek out a nice warm place to be. This suits me fine!
WHAT now seems like a lifetime ago, people got up at all hours and stood in line for something called BEANIE BABIES. It was all the rage. I can say I liked them, I can also say I collected some but not like others in my family did.I can close my eyes and still see both my nieces sitting playing and oohing and ahhing over their latest purchase. PEACE Bears were really my favorite, all those swirly colors..no two were exactly alike. Ahhhh so cute!! We traveled hither and dither to places to see what was for sale and who had what old item to sell. They had shows set up in conference rooms at motels and in malls and school gyms. Gas was cheap and money was not a problem and investing in something that you thought might be worth more in the future sounded like a good idea. Remember pet rocks and Cabbage Patch dolls? Seems the only real money-making idea that is still around is Barbie and Ken and even they are not as popular as they used to be due to computers and XBoxes now days.
As I went through our household things there they set…the entire collection that mom was so excited to buy. I searched on Ebay and put ads out in Craigslist to try to get someone to buy the whole collection. I don’t like even THINKING about what money Mom put into them. Somehow I wished she had invested in Gold jewelry, now THAT would really be something. Someone said.. DONATE them to the local hospitals for kids to play with while they stay there. What a great idea. There are so many of them though. When I called they said fine but they don’t want hundreds of them.. Yes… you read that right…HUNDREDS!! All in all we have at least 4 or 5 boxes of them including the sets from McDonald’s.
YIKES..everything runs in cycles and if you wait long enough it comes around again in a big way. Can’t wait on this though as I am short on space and have no time to wait. So these Beanies..(which the bears were my favorites) may just have to sit and wait for a new home in the local thrift store. Life is tough sometimes..even for a stuffed animal.
Spent some time outdoors yesterday and I wasn’t working!
