3/12/07 Through Heaven and Hell, and Nuclear War

Cousin Dave sends a link to Global Talent Associates. Or, as we'd all better recognize it - How's Chunk doing today?


It's rare that I post anything about doing something good. But this one is real easy if you have 20 seconds to spare:

"Women’s shelters in the U.S. go through thousands of tampons and pads monthly, and, while agencies generally assist with everyday necessities such as toilet paper, diapers, and clothing, this most basic need is often overlooked. You and I may take our monthly trips down the feminine care aisle for granted, but, for women in shelters, a box of tampons is five dollars they can’t spare. Here’s some good news: you can help us contribute to rectifying this situation by making a virtual donation below! For each virtual donation, Seventh Generation will send a pack of organic cotton tampons or chlorine-free pads to a shelter in your state."

You know you love those goofy local cable commercials. For those of you in the Chicago area, you'll remember the Eagle insurance guy that lays an egg on the car. This page has 50 of the greatest local TV commercials.

For those of you that went to college with me... I'm looking for a commercial that we used to see all the time. Remember that furniture place? We used to call it "Downer". But I'm not sure that's what it's really called. From what I remember, there were two guys just yelling, "Downer, downer, downer. We're going downer..." One of them had a bull whip if memory serves correctly. And they always gave you a free onion for stopping in. I'd be much obliged if any of you have a copy of this commercial.


As a kid my family dog retrieved a dead bird from the backyard. For a retriever, that was cool. But for my mom, it was pretty gross. This reminded me of that.


Super bonus points: Without searching, what does the post title have to do with anything?
