Mrs Marsh is back (and not just on my blog)

Gadzooks, people! A couple of days after I blogged about the old Colgate ads from the 80s with Mrs Marsh, I just saw one of the old "just like liquid gets into this chalk" ads on the telly!

Maybe Colgate is trying to skimp on their advertisiting budget by getting Channel Ten to run the ads as a "retro break"? Whatever...I am very pleased by the coincidence. It's possible they have been running the old ads for weeks, but I don't watch much commercial TV so it's new to me.

Actually, now that I think about it, I saw a snippet of the above ad on the promo for next week's episode of The Gruen Transfer, so now I know what it's going to be about.

And speaking of coincidences this week, just after I blogged about Cookery the Australian Way, reader Jayne's daughter rang up to request a recipe from their copy of the book.

Aaaahh...I love a little coincidence.


And finally, I was very pleased to see that the recent rain has given a nice green tinge to Melbourne's parks and gardens. That's the hill at Birrarung Marr above, which just last week was an unappealing yellow-brown mound. But now - green grass! Yay!

LOL I saw that promo with Mrs Marsh, too, thought you must have been looking into your crystal ball again :P

Is this some "Jayne Group think" going on??

Also the old golden gaytime ads are back.

Yes and resistance is futile, DB :P
