This Is Called A Reeses Log

That is all.
Okay that is not all. When I was a kid there was on thing that was a delicacy around our house and those were Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. We could only get them at the AMERCIAN PX and not the Canadian one so we always stocked up every four months or so when we could go back there to take part in all the great deals. To this day when I think about America it comes with the taste of peanut butter and chocolate.

Memories Of The Way Things Used To Be

On Nov. 29, 1972, Atari announced Pong, the arcade console that launched the video-game revolution! Did you play Pong back in the day?
I was there right at the beginning. We were staying in a hotel in Salzburg and in the lobby there was this PONG game and it was surrounded by guys in suits who acted like it was the greatest thing they had ever seen. They had no idea what would be the state of video games 45 years later.

Why Do I Find This To Be Creepy.

I have a big problem with feeling like I HAD to return the light to anyone that was sending the light to me. What if I am out of the house and the other person is driven into a rage because I don't reply with my attention seeking light? I see a murder happening soon after that. Next you will expect me to help you move and give you a ride to the airport. This is why I have no friends. No friends. No lamp duty.

How many times did I see these ads as a kid and wondered what would actually arrive in the mail. There were myths and stories but nothing definitive. It wasn't until the Age of Information that I was able to search out photos of these products actually in their final assembled form. They look like they would survive one summer afternoon and that's it but what a glorious adventure it would have been.
