K.A.C. 2020 - T - 7 ...


     Annnnnnnnnnnddddddddddd .... it's an anniversary date for three Very Special People at the K.A.C. - it was on this date, December 18th, 1956, that WGN-TV in Chicago introduced kiddies to The Three Dwarfs: Hardrock, Coco and Joe! It's become a holiday staple now around the country and here at the K.A.C., as well - I should warn you, however, that the song that accompanies the video is a total earworm --- once it's in your head, it's IMPOSSIBLE to get out! Oh, and a further warning: don't get too close to Santa here ... he bites!

     Damnit --- I just listened to it again! Grrr ... now it's stuck in my head! Sigh ... 



     We started this year with a look back at the 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic and a look at the different posters and advertisements warning people to take the proper precautions. Pat found this yesterday and shared it, this time from World War I, regarding the fight against tuberculosis. The full story can be found below, but it's fascinating how you could publish this today without changing a word of copy and it would still be just as effective: 0Ok9TMl1iWpP6JbD3kuryaJtLSRVpy_3bNlaDT-AueKM



     I'm all for Christmas traditions, such as Santa and his sleigh, but one must consider the planet and the ecological damage that happens thanks to this voyage every year ... what am I talking about? REINDEER FARTS, that's what! Oh, sure, you're laughing NOW, but see what you think after reading THIS disturbing scientific article!


     More tomorrow!
