Pancakes Are Special Today

Today is National Pancake Day and to celebrate I’ve found some interesting vintage food ads to post here at my blog which caught my eye because the subjects in the ads look certifiably nuts.

 I’ve included an advertisement from the Purina Flour company which made me laugh because when I see ” Purina” I think of the dog food.

As a treat I’ve also added a  tutorial to make some unique pancakes that I may try, but I doubt it because I’m a waffle girl. ( I’ve added a song to express my feelings on the subject) 

Waffles or Pancakes- enjoy the day!


My Nan Your Nan

 I laughed with everyone else at Greg Davie’s song about Prince Harry’s Nan- until I remembered-

I’m a Nan now lol.

Greg Davies and The Dancing Nans

“Your nan’s a constitutional head of state,

And no-one can form a government without her consent.

She’s descended from a thousand-year monarchy.

And my nan’s face is not on money.”

One of Jemma’s Nans used to work in Funeral Home and writes spooky stories- oh NANS!

James Bond and The Queen

I loved this video for three reasons-

The Queen’s dogs had guest starring roles, the crowd shots as the helicopter flew over London were awesome and I read that the scene where Bond is standing behind the Queen at her writing desk had a little twist.

I like plot twists- a lot.

In the scene, The Queen was supposed to turn around when Bond entered the room and then she was supposed to stand.

Now even though I’m just a girl from the USA and I’ve never been to England, let alone visited royalty I knew that scene wasn’t going to happen. Really. Who wrote it? Like the Queen was going to jump to her feet and address Bond.  So what the Queen did was to sit there writing and she made Bond wait. Ok you say and so what? Well. Apparently it was her idea to play the scene that way and Daniel Craig had no idea the script had been changed so when he’s standing there looking a bit unnerved, it was real.

He honestly did not know what to do.

So here is that clip from the 2012 Olympics.

RIP your Majesty, you were absolutely fabulous.
