Here, have a carrot.

Good morning! I’m sitting down with my hands cupped around a warm smooth cup of coffee, sipping it as I take in the morning news and guess what?

“Eh, what’s up Doc?”

Oh I love him, don’t you? Turns out that this day in history, Bugs Bunny made his debut in the cartoon The Wild Hare back in 1940. There is something very amusing about Bug’s misadventures. He is that adorable carrot eating hare that I fondly smile when I think of him. I wonder…did his cartoonist drink coffee as well? Or for that matter, would Bugs partake of a nice hot cup?

Here’s to 75 wonderful years of Bugs Bunny!

Starbuck’s Hazelnut Macchiato commercial.

The TV cable box was down for about a month and the first commercial I saw was this one. Mouth-watering imagery….I could almost smell the hazelnuts! This is a great clip focused on the coffee itself. And it sells itself! I can’t wait to go get one. Enjoy!

An old Maxwell House commercial (1954)via YouTube. I love hearing the deep richness of the speaker’s voice; if I can get past the sexist sales pitch. Oh, I do not want to go back to those days!

Now, if you will excuse me, I’m going to go have another cup of coffee.
It’s Good to the Last Drop! Unless it’s instant. Give me fresh brewed, any day!
