You're never alone with a Strand.
Peril washes whiter, and it shows.
A Mars a day helps you work rest and play.
Don't forget the fruit gums mum.
Go to work in an egg.
There must be lots more.

WE had a charge hand in the workshop back in the 60's. He used to mumble and was difficult to hear over the noise of machines, we used to say he "couldn't tell talk from mutter"

"Put a tiger in your tank." The last of the tigers they used in that advert died a few weeks ago! He was the oldest living tiger at 22 and was rescued from a German circus a couple of years ago because he was being kept in shocking conditions, and brought here. Just a point of interest! smile
