How Soon Is Too Soon I LOVE this vintage Cola ad!! The copy says: "Laboratory tests over the last few years have proven that babies who start drinking soda during that early formative period have a much higher chance of gaining acceptance and 'fitting in' during those awkward pre-teen and teen years."

HEART OF GOLD  1971 Neil Young Neil Young was nominated for an Oscar in 1994 for his song "Philadelphia" from the film Philadelphia (Bruce Springsteen ended up winning the award for his song "Streets of Philadelphia" from the same film). In his acceptance speech, Springsteen said that "the award really deserved to be shared by the other nominee's song." That same night, Tom Hanks accepted the Oscar for Best Actor and gave credit for his inspiration to the song "Philadelphia". He is part owner of Lionel, LLC, a company that makes toy trains and railroads. Young is also an inventor, and has been named as co-inventor of seven U.S. Patents related to model trains.

Jimmy Stewart Accepts Oscar for Gary Cooper At the 1961 Academy Awards ceremony, Gary Cooper was given a special lifetime achievement Oscar. At the time, only a few of his closest friends knew that Cooper was terribly ill with incurable cancer. Jimmy Stewart accepted the award on behalf of his ailing buddy. Stewart's emotional acceptance speech gave the secret away. Cooper died about a month later, just a week after his 60th birthday.

Tie A Yellow Ribbon - 1973 In 1972 songwriter Irwin Levine read a newspaper story about a prisoner who was overcome with angst as his pending release from jail drew nearer. He was deeply concerned that his wife would not want to remain married after his long absence from her. The prisoner, in advance of his release, asked his wife to provide a symbol of acceptance before he arrived home. Levine and co-writer L. Russell Brown took the story and turned it into one of the truly great songs from the 1970s: Tie A Yellow Ribbon (Round The Ole Oak Tree). It was recorded by Tony Orlando and Dawn, a group which hadn't had a major hit song in nearly three years. It sold three million copies in two weeks. The song revived the group and led to their getting a CBS variety show that began as a summer replacement program in 1974 and lasted for two seasons. Tie A Yellow Ribbon reached the top of the charts in April 1973 and remained there for a month. It had equal success in the UK where it sold more than one million copies and hit the top of the charts there too. According to one source, it was the second most covered song of the 1970s, trailing only Yesterday by the Beatles. It's a classic upbeat singalong tune that is a favorite at karaoke parties. Tie A Yellow Ribbon has frequently been used to welcome home troops from overseas since the 1980s. This clip shows Tony Orlando and Dawn performing it. I bet you can't listen to it without singing along!

Peter Falk 1972 Emmy Acceptance Speech At the 1972 Emmy Awards in Los Angeles Peter Falk won an Emmy for his sensational work on Columbo. Officially, the Emmy was for 'Outstanding Continued Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Dramatic Series.' Here is his very amusing acceptance speech, in which he sort of sounds like Lt. Columbo when the detective is flustered.
