Cut, Color And Roll ...



“ … Well I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake, rattle and roll …”
                        “Shake, Rattle and Roll”
                      ~ written in 1954 by Jesse Stone (1901-1999) under his assumed songwriting name Charles E. Calhoun
          ~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
                             ~1956

Strolling through Belvidere, New Jersey on a rare warm February afternoon, I came across this cool sign for Dee’s Doos Hair Salon. Elvis Presley sang about “Shake, Rattle and Roll,” but at Dee’s I believe the slogan would be “Cut, Color and Roll!”

Belvidere, one of my very favorite places, is a charming Victorian town located on the banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.

Local Honey ...



“Life is the flower for which love is the honey.”
                ~ Victor Hugo
                   ~ 1802-1885

Local honey is for sale on the front porch of one of the colorful houses in Belvidere, New Jersey, a bright and fun touch of Americana on a late summer September day.

Coca-Cola Summer ...




“I’d like to buy the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees
And snow white turtle doves.

I’d like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I’d like to buy the world a Coke
And keep it company
That’s the real thing.

What the world wants today
Coca-Cola
Is the real thing.”

         ~ “I’d Like To Buy The World A Coke”
            ~ famous Coca-Cola jingle circa 1971

Summer, baseball and Coca-Cola go together like mom, Chevrolet and apple pie. And the scoreboard on the ballfield at Walter’s Park, Phillipsburg, New Jersey sparkles in June with the refreshing message of Coca-Cola, “ Enjoy! Coca- Cola, Always part of your team.”

“I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing (In Perfect Harmony)” is a pop song that originated as the jingle “Buy the World a Coke” in the groundbreaking 1971 “Hilltop” television commercial for Coca-Cola. “Buy the World a Coke” was produced by Billy Davis and portrayed a positive message of hope and love, featuring a multicultural collection of teenagers on top of a hill appearing to sing the song. “Buy the World a Coke” repeated “It’s the real thing” as Coca-Cola’s marketing theme at the time.

Coca-Cola, often referred to simply as Coke, is a carbonated soft drink produced by The Coca-Cola Company of Atlanta, Georgia. Originally intended as a patent medicine, it was invented by Confederate Colonel John Pemberton and introduced May 8, 1886.
