YouTube - Teaberry Gum 1960's TV Ad

I have never heard of this gum before, and thought this is one silly ad. Almost campy, but not quite. You might recognized Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass' music.

A bit of history about the gum:

Rob Ossian's Pirate's Cove site has all kind of information about pirates. It's a nice looking site. I see this site was featured by various tv shows, such as CNN and The History Channel. Impressive. The site itself is a nice looking one. Lots of details. There must have been a lot of work and research invested in this site. There is probably everything that you need to know about "Piratism". Ships, weapons, knots, bios, navigation.. even pirate music!

Native Americans Of The Past

There is a great collection of historical photos that are elated to the Native Americans' culture. I wish I had seen this before, because there is a section of hairstyle (under "Hair and Body Adomment"). I posted a link about women hairstyles a while back.

Anyhow, this link basically covers everything about the Native Americans' culture. They are actually divided into categories and sub-catories. There are 21 categories, so I am not going to list them here. I'll end up writing an essay.. A few examples are the basic clothing ornamentations, headgears. weapons, building and tools & equipments. There are so many interesting pictures of people to look at. For me it was, since I rarely see pictures of Native Americans. I really liked the child's photo the most, because many of the photos (I have not finished looking at all of them. There is much to view), show serious people. Whenever I see a picture of someone who appears serious, I wonder if they were told to look serious, or if it's a personal choice (maybe a cultural as well). Seeing a child who is smiling is nice to see.

An interesting set of bathroom ads from early 20th century. They are mostly from the 1920's.

Classic Television Blog

A great blog about television nostalgia. Look out for young Jay Leno at the Johnny Carson show. What an abundant of hair! So 70's. The blog did bring me some memories. Take a look.

Pass Me That Box Bag

An alphabetical glossary (except for the I, U, X and letters which are empty) for all type of handbags. Some of them are the Messenger Bag, Valise, Baguette, Box Bag, Gingham, Jacquard and the Grommet. It's interesting how some bags do look similar (to me anyway), but aren't. As someone who is no expert, I am surprised that there are many types out there. Wow, that is some education for a "handbag challenged" like me!
