  1. I listened to two of the videos, one of them from the year I was born. When Santa added Hoover products to his list, I laughed. I recognised all of those appliances from my childhood. You’ve done an amazing amount of work to share these videos with us. Thanks heaps, Gerry.

  3. Love all your selections but none as much as the messages from your Queen, and my First Lady & President Kennedy Still inspiring today.
    . Strikes me how relevant so much of their messages are.

    A delightfully unexpected set of choices is a great Christmas message you send as a result of your research and through your postings. Impressive,
    Thank you My Kind Sir for sharing~.

  4. The queen’s speech was fascinating. I wonder if she could honestly repeat it today though? As BB says much of it is relevant, but I think she would have to say that a lot of the moral issues she raised have gone by the board for a lot of people qv my post about 2DayDM radio station. Plus I’m not sure that anyone considers Great Britain as a major player any more, although we only have ourselves to blame for that.

    Interesting back in 1957, she referred to the men and women who had worked so hard before her to estalish and advance the commonwealth.

    Laughing at advertising domestic products for Christmas. Yeah, a washing machine – just what you want!
