    Nancy,

    Never know what one will get.... We had a green Christmas... and then a NB>white New Year's... a skim of snow on the ground, anyway.... maybe half NB>an inch or so.... ;) Didn't last, though... we got temps back into the NB>50s on New Year's Day.... been in the 40s the yesterday and today, and NB>then it will go back to seasonal 30s tomorrow and following....

    Back in 1982, we had tornadoes on Christmas Eve.

    I hope the same holds true for my place...it was replaced 2 years
    ago.

    It should....

    For what my Mom paid for it, I hope so.

    The talent scout kicks both of them out of the office. The dog looks
    at his master, and replies "Maybe I should've said DiMaggio". <G>

    Ruff, ruff... ;)

    <WAG!> <G>

    ... I saw a subliminal advertising executive, but only for a second.

    I likely have noted this in the past, but in college 40 years ago, one
    of the professors did "an X-rated lecture. It was on "Subliminal Seduction"....where "you are sexually aroused by ads".

    They showed an ad of "Seagrams Liquor. Break out the frosty bottle,
    and keep your tonics dry". We were told to write what was brought to
    our minds. I wrote drunkeness, alcoholism, etc...but all these others
    were writing all these sexually oriented terms.

    Then, I was shown what it was, and to say I was shocked was an understatement!! In fact, there's a book that I have, with the title "Subliminal Seduction"...and it asks "What is the sexiest thing in
    Playboy Magazine?? Clue: Forget about the centerfold". :P

    Excuse the pun, but to this day, ads don't get a rise out of me. :P

    Daryl

    That's no fun... would blow Santa off course for sure.... ;)

    As I said, it should... :)

    ... I saw a subliminal advertising executive, but only for a second.

    I likely have noted this in the past, but in college 40 years ago,
    one of the professors did "an X-rated" lecture. It was on "Subliminal Seduction"....where "you are sexually aroused by ads".

    Yes, we have talked about that before... :) There was a course like
    that at my college, too... A friend of mine took it, and then brought
    stuff to show all his friends... We had a great time looking for the
    hidden images... once you know thwy are there, most if not all their
    "power" is broken... :)

    They showed an ad of "Seagrams Liquor. Break out the frosty bottle,
    and keep your tonics dry". We were told to write what was brought to
    our minds. I wrote drunkeness, alcoholism, etc...but all these others
    were writing all these sexually oriented terms.

    Apparently they'd had a sneak preview of the practice... :) Or had
    really dirty minds... <G>

    Then, I was shown what it was, and to say I was shocked was an understatement!! In fact, there's a book that I have, with the title "Subliminal Seduction"...and it asks "What is the sexiest thing in
    Playboy Magazine?? Clue: Forget about the centerfold". :P

    I think that might have been what was being used as the (or at least a) textbook for the course my friend was taking...

    Excuse the pun, but to this day, ads don't get a rise out of me. :P

    To this day, I'll sometimes check out the ads just to see if there are
    any hidden images.... I never found them particularly sexy either,
    though... ;)
