Times change

It's amazing how much (and sometimes how fast) times change. 

Once upon a cigarette, smoking was hip, cool and maybe even "good for ya"... The fact that there were advertising like the following one, seems so unreal now a days...


Also that you were encouraged to share the "Christmas Spirit" with cigarettes; endorsed by no other than Ronald Reagan. Here's the former US president advertising a very special Christmas-Card carton that was THE THING to buy for all those you care for... plus no unpleasant after-taste, LOL!


Times have definitely changed and in some cases for better but in other cases, not sure...

In many cases the planet is the one that has suffer (and is still is) the many changes, otherwise ask the New York territory. 


Crazy how times, things, places and even people change... Now, if only there was a way to change weekends so they were longer, LOL!

Have a wonderful week!

Just settling to life in a new part of the world (Greece) and walked past a chemist shop the other day where to ol' Greek guys sat at a small make-shift table in the shop, puffing away on their cigerettes. I smiled to myself thinking that if it'd been in my home country the shop would have been closed in an instant :-)

love the NY pics. seems sad.

the ads are very familiar to me. i'm old enough to remember when smoking and liquor ads were very prominent on TV. They were good ads - slick marketing.
