What was on TV May 9th through 15th, 1981

I know, I'm a week and a half late on this TV Guide, but it's not like you were going to use it to watch TV last week, is it? Enjoy.

What to do in Gatlinburg, Tennessee in July of 1964

Who wants more vintage travel ephemera?! Well, too bad, you're getting it anyway. Today's offering is this oddly red-colored brochure for Gatlingurg, Tennessee from July, 1964.  Why they just didn't go with all black and white, I don't know. My wife and I tent-camped in Gatlinburg about 25 years ago. Wettest week of my life.

Meramec Caverns

If you've ever driven down the Interstate 44 corridor in Missouri between St. Louis and Springfield (don't do it now, it's flooded), you are bound to have noticed the abundance of billboards and barn roofs touting Meramec Caverns in Stanton.

Anti-Gravity House

While looking for a travel brochure requested by a reader (sorry, Greg, still haven't found it), I decided I needed to get a handle on my (frighteningly) vast collection of ephemera, so I gathered it all up and started categorizing and scanning them (look for some coming your way in the near future). While doing so, I came across this brochure for "Marine Life" in Gulfport, Mississippi.

Rokkaku Kites

I found these miniature Rokkaku kites at an estate sale a couple years ago. I'd never heard of them before, but I liked the designs.

What was on TV April 7th through 13th, 1979

After a long hiatus, TV Guide returns again to my blog.  This issue from this week in 1979 features an cover and interview with Maren Jensen of "Battlestar Galactica".

How right you are, 1979. Things do always go wrong at the Oscars. Just ask LaLaLand.

The Young Cook's Bake-A-Bun Book

Is there anything better than fresh, hot buns?  Well, sure, probably lots of things, but it sounded like the proper way to start this post.  Anyway, enjoy this Bake-a-Bun Book published by Fleischmmann's Rapidmix yeast from 1974.
