This Week’s Softdrink – Tango

493_tango_01

Tango is a soft drink primarily sold in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Sweden, Norway and Hungary, first launched by Corona in 1950. Corona were bought by the Beecham Group in 1958, and Corona Soft Drinks were bought by Britvic in 1987. In Scandinavia the drink is distributed by SMX Drinks AB.

493_tango_02Originally, Tango was the name of the orange flavour in a range of different flavoured drinks that each had their own name. In the 1990s, long after the other products in the range had been discontinued, the Tango brand was expanded into other flavours, including apple, lemon, cherry, blackcurrant, and later "Fruit Fling". As of August 2011, the flavours available in the United Kingdom are orange, apple, cherry and citrus.

Advertisements for Tango attracted attention in the 1990s when they became well known for their distinctively bizarre and post-modern tone. The advertisements arguably became more talked-about than the product itself, and manufacturer Britvic considers the drink to be "probably most famous for its successful and innovative marketing campaigns".

493_tango_03The drink’s first ironic campaign introduced the catchphrase "You know when you’ve been Tango’d", produced by advertising agency HHCL. The campaign began in 1991 with an ad, Orange Man featuring a man drinking Tango and immediately being slapped around the face by a portly man painted orange (Peter Geeves). The advert received widespread condemnation after a craze for "Tangoing" people swept the nation’s playgrounds, and there were reports of children receiving serious injuries or even being deafened by being slapped on the ears. Tango voluntarily replaced the "slapping" advert with an almost-identical new version where the orange-clad person kisses the man instead of hitting him. The original version was named the 3rd best television commercial of all time in a 2000 poll conducted by The Sunday Times and Channel 4.

The Renault 4CV

0
0

691_4CV_03

The Renault 4CV (French: "quatre chevaux" [katʃə.vo]) is an economy car produced by the French manufacturer Renault from August 1947 until July 1961. The first French car to sell over a million units, the 4CV was superseded by the Dauphine.

The 4CV was a four-door sedan of monocoque construction, 3.6 m (11 ft 10 in) in length with front suicide doors and using Renault’s Ventoux engine in a rear-engine, rear-wheel drive layout.

691_4CV_01

CV is the abbreviation of cheval-vapeur, the French equivalent to "horsepower" as a unit of power. The name 4CV refers to the car’s tax horsepower.

In 1996, Renault presented a concept car — the Renault Fiftie — to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 4CV’s debut. It was a two-door, mid-engine design with styling similar to the 4CV.

691_4CV_02

Conception and development

The 4CV was originally conceived and designed covertly by Renault engineers during the World War II German occupation of France, when the manufacturer was under strict orders to design and produce only commercial and military vehicles. Between 1941 and 1944 Renault was placed under the Technical Directorship of a francophile engineer called Wilhelm von Urach (de; between 1927 and 1940 employed by Daimler Benz) who took care to notice nothing of the small car project.

691_4CV_04

A design team led by the company’s Technical Director Fernand Picard, recently returned from Renault’s aero-engine division to the auto business and Charles-Edmond Serre, who had been with Renault for longer than virtually anyone else envisioned a small, economical car suitable for the period of austerity which was expected to follow the war. This was in contrast to Louis Renault himself who in 1940 believed that after the war Renault would need to concentrate on its traditional mid-range cars. Jean-Auguste Riolfo, head of the test department, was made aware of the project from an early stage as were several other heads of department.

691_4CV_05

In May 1941 Louis Renault himself burst into an office to find Serre and Picard studying a mock-up for the car’s engine. By the end of an uncomfortable ad hoc meeting Renault’s approval for the project, now accorded the code "106E", was provided. However, because the Germans had forbidden work on any new passenger car models, the 4CV development was defined, if at all, as a low priority spin-off from a project to develop a new engine for a post-war return of the company’s 1930s small car, the Juvaquatre: departmental bosses installed by the Germans were definitely not to be trusted in respect of "Project 106E", while von Urach, their overlord, always managed to turn a blind eye to the whole business.

Round Britain By Railway Posters – North Cornwall

north_cornwall

North Cornwall (Cornish: An Tiredh Uhel) is an area of Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It is also the name of a former local government district, which was based in Wadebridge 50.516°N 4.835°WCoordinates: 50.516°N 4.835°W. 692_NC_05Other towns in the area includeBude, Padstow, and Camelford.

North Cornwall is an area of outstanding natural beauty that is of important geological and scientific interest. It includes the only part of Cornwall that is formed of carboniferous rocks, the northern area of North Cornwall District. The rest of the district lies on Devonian sedimentary strata and the granite of Bodmin Moor. A similar area is covered by the North Cornwall parliamentary constituency.

Geography

See also: Geography of Cornwall and Geology of Cornwall, he Rumps, on Pentire Point, North Cornwall, site of Iron Age cliff fortifications

692_NC_03North Cornwall has a stretch of coastline that borders the Celtic Sea to the north. The Carboniferous sandstone cliffs that surround Bude (and stretch down as far south as Crackington Haven) were formed during the Carboniferous period, around 300 million years ago. They are part of what are known to geologists as the Culm Measures which continue eastwards across north Devon. The folded and contorted stratification of shale and sandstone is unique in southern England. During the Variscan Orogeny, which affected the entire Cornish coast, the cliffs were pushed up from underneath the sea, creating the overlapping 692_NC_01strata. As the sands and cliffs around Bude contain calcium carbonate (a natural fertiliser), farmers used to take sand from the beach, for spreading on their fields. The cliffs around Bude are the only ones in Cornwall that are made of Carboniferous sandstone, as most of the Cornish coast is geologically formed of Devonian slate, granite and Precambrian metamorphic rocks). The stratified cliffs of Bude gave their name to a geological event called the Bude Formation. Many formations can be viewed from the South West Coast Path which passes through the town.

692_NC_02The larger harbours are at Padstow and Bude and on the intervening coast Port Isaac, Port Gaverne, Port Quin, Port William, Tintagel, Bossiney and Boscastle have all been used either for fishing or the export of slate. There are good beaches at Polzeath, Trebarwith Strand and Bude. At Delabole the large Delabole Quarry has been works for many centuries and there were once in the parish of Tintagel many other slate quarries. Granite and elvan have also been important minerals: there are major granite quarries in the parish of St Breward and also some china clay works on the edges of Bodmin Moor e.g. at Stannon near Camelford.

Most of the lowland areas have good agricultural land used either for mixed or dairy farming. At Davidstow much of the milk is processed into Davidstow cheese.

Routemasters To The Tune Of “Bridge of Song”

On This Day In 1970 – The Beatles Film “Let It Be” Opened In New York.

0
0

693_let it be_02Let It Be is a 1970 documentary film about the Beatles rehearsing and recording songs for the album Let It Be in January 1969. The film features an unannounced rooftop concert by the group, their last performance in public. Released just after the album, it was the final original Beatles release.

The film was originally planned as a television documentary which would accompany a concert broadcast. When plans for a broadcast were dropped, the project became a feature film. Although the film does not dwell on the dissension within the group at the time, it provides some glimpses into the dynamics that would lead to the Beatles’ break-up.

693_let it be_01

The film has not been officially available since the 1980s, although original and bootleg copies of home video releases still circulate. The film’s director Michael Lindsay-Hogg stated in 2011 that a DVD and Blu-ray was possibly going to be released sometime in 2013, but this was not likely given the film’s negative (though accurate) portrayal of The Beatles. John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr collectively won an Academy Award for Best Original Song Score for the film.

This Week’s Favourite Female Singer – Savannah Churchill

0
0

I was rightly corrected by “loveless” for having used a picture of Savannah Churchill instead of Lucille Hegamin on my Lucille Hegamin post so I thought it only right to present Savannah Churchill for you as she too is one of my favourites – Ted


684_savannah churchill_02Savannah Churchill (August 21, 1920, Colfax, Louisiana – April 19, 1974, Brooklyn, New York) was a successful American singer of pop, jazz, and blues music in the 1940s and 1950s.

Career

Born Savannah Valentine to Creole parents, she was raised in Brooklyn, and started singing in 1941 to support her family after her husband David Churchill was killed in a car accident. Her first recordings, including the risqué "Fat Meat Is Good Meat", were issued on Beacon Records in 1942. These were followed the next year by recordings on Capitol with the Benny Carter Orchestra, including her first hit "Hurry, Hurry".

684_savannah churchill_01In 1945 she signed with Irving Berman‘s Manor Records, and that year "Daddy Daddy" reached # 3 on the R&B chart. Two years later she had her only R&B # 1 with "I Want To Be Loved (But Only By You)", which topped the charts for eight weeks. The record was billed as being with vocal group The Sentimentalists, who soon renamed themselves The Four Tunes. Subsequent recordings with The Four Tunes, including "Time Out For Tears" (# 10 R&B, # 24 pop) and "I Want To Cry", both in 1948, were also successful.

Billed as "Sex-Sational", she performed to much acclaim, and appeared in the movies Miracle in Harlem (1948) and Souls of Sin (1949). She toured widely with backing vocal group The Striders, including a visit to Hawaii in 1954. From 1949 she recorded with Regal, RCA Victor and Decca Records, recording the original version of "Shake A Hand", later a big hit forFaye Adams, and also recording with the Ray Charles Singers. In 1956 she was one of the first artists signed to the Argolabel, set up as a subsidiary to Chess Records.

Tragedy struck later in 1956 to end her career. She was singing on stage in a club, when a drunken man fell on top of her from a balcony above, causing severe debilitating injuries from which she would never fully recover. Although she did some recording in 1960, her health declined greatly until her death in 1974, at the age of 53.684_savannah churchill_04


These recordings are from a cd produced in Salerno, Italy in 2001. It is made by ripping old 78 rpm records so the quality is not absolutely top, but it gives you an idea of what a magnificent singer Savannah Churchill was – Ted

684_ties

Doesn’t it strike you too as more than a bit stupid, to get up in the morning, take a shower, shave, get dressed, put on your ridiculous tie and then go back to bed just so that your wife can give you breakfast. And even more stupid that the reason she is willing to do this is because that ridiculous brand new man-talking, power-packed patterned tie is a something usually worn just by men.

And shouldn’t the mad man who drew the illustration have gone for a more powerful looking man, the sod in the bed up there looks like his cerebral capacity has got their hands full just to keep his lungs and heart going. Quite honestly, it looks like his wife brings him breakfast just because making it him self seams beyond the reach of his mental ability and I hardly think that’s what the text man meant when he wrote “it’s a man’s world” – Ted

Hanomag 2/10 PS (The Komissbrot)

0
0

688-komissbrot

The Hanomag 2/10 PS was an economy car manufactured by Hanomag from 1924 to 1928. It was one of the first cars with envelope styling. It was affectionately referred to as the "Kommissbrot" or "Loaf of Rye Bread" due to its small squarish shape.

With a fuel consumption of 4.0 litres per 100 kilometres (71 mpg), the 2/10 PS was the world’s most fuel efficient mass-production car between the two World Wars. This was because it was the only mass-produced car of that time with a low-friction one-cylinder-engine and its light weight.

688-komissbrot2

The 2/10 PS (two taxable / ten brake horsepower) had a single-cylinder half litre engine at the rear. The rear axle was chain-driven, with no differential.

The fenders, or wings, of the 2/10 PS were integrated into the bodywork of the car, allowing the passenger space to be wider than it would have been with the traditional separate fenders and running board. The compact drivetrain allowed the floor to be lower, making it possible to enter the car from the ground without a running board. The rounded appearance of the 2/10 PS, due to the envelope styling, earned it the nickname Kommissbrot after the inexpensive, flat-sided bread used by the military.

Hanomag car, Wolfgangsee, Austria, 1932

The 2/10 PS faced competition from the Opel Laubfrosch and the Dixi DA1 variant of the Austin 7 and was replaced in 1928 by the more conventional 3/16 PS model.

On This Day In 1971: Row Rocks Rolling Stone Wedding

0

689_jagger wedding

The Rolling Stones singer, Mick Jagger, has married his fiancée Bianca Pérez-Mora Macias at the town hall in the French Mediterranean town of St Tropez.The civil ceremony was held up for almost an hour-and-a-half, after bitter arguments between Mr Jagger’s spokesman and the police over the number of reporters and photographers in the wedding chamber.

A pool of four photographers had been invited to the town hall, but as the time of the ceremony approached about 100 cameramen and other journalists packed the chamber.

At first, Mr Jagger refused to come to the town hall – the message which was delivered by his spokesman said he did not wish to get married in a "goldfish bowl". But the police insisted the media had the right to stay – and they, in turn, threatened to cancel the wedding unless the couple put in an appearance.

Mick Jagger and his Nicaraguan-born wife-to-be eventually arrived at 1700. Police and journalists exchanged blows in the frenzy.

689_jagger wedding2

Hippies turned up on foot and bicycles, mingling with members of the international jet set, who arrived in Rolls Royces for the wedding.After the brief civil service, the couple left for the St Anne chapel for a religious ceremony.

Students gave the wedding party a noisy reception at the chapel. During the simple service, Father Lucien Baud recalled the groom had been born on St Anne’s day, which is why he had chosen to be married in her chapel.

Bach’s wedding march was played as the couple exchanged rings. A medley of themes from the film Love Story was also played at the request of the bride.

The couple left by a side door in an attempt to dodge the journalists who had followed them to the chapel.

The reception in the Café des Arts was attended by 200 guests – 70 of whom had been flown from London on a chartered Comet paid for by the groom.The party went on into the early hours of the morning when the newly-weds left on the yacht Romeang, with a six-man crew for a 10-day honeymoon around Corsica and Sardinia.

In Context
Mick Jagger met Bianca Pérez-Mora Macias at a party after a Rolling Stones’ concert where she apparently impressed him with her French. She had left Nicaragua to study political science in Paris.

When they married, she was already pregnant with their daughter, Jade. Eight years later they divorced. The ageing rocker is now grandfather to Jade’s children, Assisi and Amba.

He married the Texan model Jerry Hall in November 1990 in Bali after a 20-year courtship. They had four children – but after nine years of marriage, the relationship was annulled at the High Court in London on the grounds it was not valid under either English or Indonesian law.

Since her marriage ended, Bianca has become a campaigner for human rights, as well as on environmental issues. She moved to London when George Bush was elected president of the United States and has become an outspoken critic of the war in Iraq.
