Did you do Tang? The misconception is it was invented for astronauts. Not so says Wikipedia. Sales did take off when it was used by NASA for manned spaceflight programs however.  According to Buzz Aldrin in 2013: Tang sux.

I don’t remember what it tasted like but the jug does fill me with some happy nostalgia, particularly for a time when the more sugar that got into my mouth the better it was.


the juice:

Citrus neons are so flavour of the season that you are possibly cataract impaired or cave bound if you’ve not have absorbed this already. Or you are, in fact, a man.

Tupperware Outkast: So fresh and so clean.

Lemon, lime and bitter that its not full of Pimms and Lemonade.

An old squeeze.
Lime Bakelite juicer. From Chequered Past in Eumundi Qld.

My new squeeze.
The Alessi Juicy Salif, designed by Philippe Starck in 1990.
I use a juicer all the time, half a lemon in hot water first and last thing every day. Salif gets a bit of a bad rap by some and Starck justifies it as more of a conversation starter than a lemon squeezer. Personally I love it, though I was happier to pay $35 at Salvo’s than the $100 or thereabouts for a new one. It would need to be a good conversation to pay that much…

Citrus interruptus….

Oranges and Lemons…

how to keep slim healthy and young with juice fasting retro vintage book

Bought this book for the rad 1970’s typography and because it was there and relevant and it was only a dollar. I’ve never done a Juice Fast in my life and doubtful I’m about to try. I can do fast juice though.

Here comes a candle to light you to bed…
