Happy Valentines Day 2019!!!

It's been crazy cold all over the United States these last few weeks, so hopefully taking a look at these retro Valentines Cards from the 80s & 90s will help to spark some warm memories of years past. When you handed out cards of your favorite cartoon characters to your friends, teachers and special someone. I love seeing the faces of my kids as they fill out their cards for their classmates. It brings me great joy to know the tradition of handing out Valentines still gives kids joy today. A few years ago the fine people at the website Top Hat Sasquatch wanted to bring back that fun to it's readers and wouldn't you know it, I was one of the lucky ones to receive some Valentines! They sent a great selection and now I am sharing them with you. ENJOY and HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!

This week the comic book I am most excited to read is...
Exiled from their home planet, alien heroes Zan and Jayna must navigate life as teens on Earth at South Metropolis High School, where they're even bigger outsiders than the typical awkward young adults. Under the watchful eye of Superman, the brother and sister pull monitor duty at the Hall of Justice as interns, while also trying to overcome the pitfalls of Zan's brash confidence and Jayna's shy but streetwise persona. If you think you know the Wonder Twins, think again-this book takes the form of the unexpected.

80s Commercials from the East Coast

I had planned on a pretty cool post for this week, but with sick kids and the crazy weather I have been unable to get it written and onto the blog. Instead I decided to share some of my favorite local commercials that I used to see on TV in the 80s while living in the great state of New Jersey. If your from the tri-state area these should bring back some great memories. If not, I'm sure you can still enjoy the nostalgia of the spots. ENJOY!
