Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

I wouldn't want that thing on my hand:


I remember the old Florida orange juice commercials with Anita Bryant. In retrospect, I must say there's something a bit disturbing about a bird whose head you could squeeze to make juice. Just sayin'.

That is pretty odd, however have you seen how much orange costs? It's expensive! I wish a magic bird would just come and drop some off for me.

I totally remember that. I also remember Florida had two souvenirs I loved! The orange flavored gum in little tiny bits, like gold in a sack or something. The other item was this orange scented cheap perfume. Grandma always brought it back for me. Sorry to go off on that tangent!

Meg: When i was in Florida a couple weeks ago, there was a nearby medical center. Growing there were several grapefruit trees, and we picked free grapefruit while we were there.

Ally: There's still those old-fashioned souvenir places here and there, but not as many as there once was. I bought some orange-essence dark chocolate. man did that suck...

She just couldn't come to terms with the fact that her husband was a "man's man"...

Ah, good ol' Anita Bryant, let go for some stupid crap about God and homosexuality, wasn't it?

"A day without orange juice is like a day without sunshine."

Btw, I'd forgotten about the slogan.

Disturbing indeed! Reminds me of products and restaurants advertised with a cartoon version of the creature you were being invited to eat <:O

Just discovered your blog today (via Caffeinated Joe). I think I'm in heaven!

I too am a child of the 70's :)
