Some 1982 Magazine Ads: "Don't Say Vinegar. Say Sarson's"...

Trawling through a mountain of 1982 magazines, I came across these goodies...

Remember "Don't Say Vinegar. Say Sarson's"?

"Take one soaking wet husband..."

A brilliant OXO ad for winter 1982, complete with a very acceptable recipe for crusty beef casserole.

The long-running fresh cream cakes "Naughty But Nice" TV ads had their magazine counterparts. Here, the Mona Lisa has a crafty nibble...

Curried beans? Ooh, no ta....

And finally, breaking off from the food theme, I recently had an e-mail from a woman apparently desperate to wear some 1980s fashion but without big hair, shoulder pads, lycra leggings, pixie boots, deelyboppers, etc, etc, etc.

Well, the above is perfect for you, madam! Actually, there's been a revival of '80s fashion on the boil for a while now, and I've seen similar colour schemes back on the streets.
