Rest, Relax and Enjoy

Christmas Ideas… Early…oh yes. Please

Monday 11th September 2017.

Dare I ask you Clever people to get your brain matter working?

Yes Of Course.

I have one idea that might be suitable but I feel I would have to add a little more, if only to make it more Chrismassy. (made up word but sounds good) But I would very much like your ideas or input, I am aiming to please and hopefully involve others. Lat year I used a suggestion by Trish Worth. Hope she s still about and will read this.

  1. Hi Gerry, These posters are a great idea! I’d really enjoy seeing more. Of course, I always look forward to your musical contributions at Christmas. One suggestion: cover versions of famous Christmas songs. Sometimes a local radio station here has an afternoon of playing covers that are better than the originals. I get a lot of pleasure out of this, because it’s a bit like translation… I noticed you subscribed to my new blog You should have received a confirmation email. Try again if you didn’t. I’m still learning how to drive the original wordpress software, the non-political version.

    • Here is your original message thanks, strange how it ended up in my spam. Now it should be okay. I do like your idea, it will encourage a little deeper research and should be fun. I have now subscribed and again sorry your other site has not been resolved. Fingers crossed. On my way to Rome tomorrow morning looking forward to it. Thanks Trish for your continued support.

  3. I wrote earlier today that I really liked the posters. I’ve never seen them before and would love to see more. And of course I’d like them to be accompanied by your choice of music.

    • I am sorry Trish but the only comments I have seen are what is shown. It seems many people are having problems. I went to your other site and subscribed but when I tried confirming, it came up as no server etc.

    • It is an idea that had cropped up in my thoughts. Possible I might do a mixture of several. Adverts (posters etc) TV adverts and maybe certain old style products. It is difficult to find stuff other than USA base products. I will however search hard to be a little unbiased… once again Trish thank you and I am sorry that your other site did not resolve itself

  4. Thanks. Can you try again to subscribe to my blog? We’ve just updated the software to the latest version. I deleted your first non-working subscription, and I’d like to see if we can get it working properly. Grateful for your patience.

  5. Hey, Gerry, these old Christmas ads are great. I love, love, love looking at old ads, and Christmas ones are the best. I think I’m going to try to ad several of the old video ads to my Christmas blog too this year. If you do post some more, maybe I can reblog or link to a lot of yours too. I always think if I can link other people’s sites to the Christmas website that makes it much more interesting.

    A visit to Rome sounds terrific. I hope you have a wonderful, safe time.

    • It does sound like a great idea, and of course Sandra you are welcome to reblog anything that takes your fancy. And I will do the same if it okay with you. spreading the joys and love etc of Christmas can only be a good thing. Leaving tomorrow for Rome, 10 days of history and beauty and hopefully some great photos and movies. Thank you and welcome always Sandra.
