HarryT? I realized I hadn't seen his Dalek avatar in quite some time, and when I checked his profile, I saw that his last MR post was in late November. I sent him a PM about a week ago but never heard back. I hope he's traveling the world or pursuing the Doctor across time and space and isn't ill. I left the subject line open-ended in case there are other forum members who have gone missing that someone would like to inquire after.

So, what colour beret should the Couch Potato have?



Blast from the Past

*Who remembers:* Image: http://ic.pics.livejournal.com/smeghead2068/20203749/26557/26557_original.jpg ---Quote--- *Fizzies (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fizzies)* Ruth Millard invented the idea for Emerson Drug Company, manufacturer of Bromo-Seltzer, by adding a fruit flavor that children liked. Once perfected, Emerson named the creation Fizzies. The tablet was dropped into a glass of water, then fizzed and dissolved, creating a sweet, effervescent drink. Fizzies were first introduced by Emerson on a regional basis in July 1957. In 1962, the Emerson Drug Company was acquired by Warner–Lambert, which sold the product nationally that same year.[1] In the 1950s and 1960s Fizzies came in seven flavors: grape, orange, cherry, lemon-lime, strawberry, root beer, and cola. Fizzies' sales grew both nationally and internationally until 1968, achieving more than double the sales volume of Kool-Aid.[2][full citation needed] Fizzies was also one of the sponsors for "The Shari Lewis Show" on NBC-TV in the early 1960s and pitched by Lewis herself. The successful beverage became a cultural icon of its time. In the motion picture National Lampoon's Animal House, set in 1962, Dean Wormer reads a list of pranks committed by members of the Delta House fraternity, which included dumping "a truckload of Fizzies" into a swimming pool during a swim meet. ---End Quote---
