The thread about the cost of cleaning carpets set off the old '1001 cleans a big big carpet for less than half a crown' advert in my head and it made me wonder whether I was brainwashed by ITV as a child. I still believe a Mars a day helps me work rest and play and that Pal dog food prolongs active life! Anyone else still wondering where the yellow went after brushing their teeth with Pepsodent?

A finger of fudge is just enough to give your kids a treat while we're going well on Shell, Shell, Shell! Has anyone asked you today how you knew it was Esso Blue?

Ever played Scattergories with the DGCs? You have to name things beginning with the chosen letter and you get a point for every time you can use it.

So.......When you get the letter P for an advertising slogan, I'm in there!!

'When you're feeling P P P Peckish, P P P Pick up a Penguin' = 9 points!

Gets 'em every time!! grin

An old one from 1967, " McEwan's is the best buy, the best buy, the best buy, the best buy in beer" a cavalier on horse back sang this while waving a tankard, my 18mth DD loved this, which is why I remember it

You'll wonder where the yellow went
When you brush your teeth with Pepsodent.
