throwback thursday - TBT #17

been a few weeks since i showed up and marked attendance here... travel, being a bit under the weather, and sundry other excuses as usual.

i've just not been in the best of spirits lately, and i was thinking of something to post today while still being in a sore mood.
the only thing that came to my mind was that, when you are feeling blue, the best medicine is a little purple :) yup, what quickly cheers me up is thoughts of my beloved cadburys. (to be precise, real old cadbury's, before it became kraft. somehow its never the same inside my head anymore.)

anyway, ended up browsing through vintage ads of cadburys and found this one -

( i wish I find meself some cadburys real soon. right now all i have on hand is some white chocolate, which im using as an emergency substitute.)

throwback thursday - TBT #16

august 6th, a day in history that humanity never should, and never will, forget.

american forces used the atomic bomb for the first time on august 6th 1945, completely destroying the city of hiroshima and killing hundreds of thousands of people, both immediately and later gradually, as a result of radiation exposure.
nagasaki would be bombed three days later on august 9th.

one can only hope that never again will the world witness such a horror, even though the kind of news that we wake up to each day leaves us with less and less hope for humanity.

make love, not war.
hiroshima bombing, august 6th 1945
