An old Cold War film. Scary at the time, but “a sign of the times” now.

We can laugh about the “House in The Middle” ‘s message, as if painting your house could help you survive a nuclear explosion…Never mind the house that survived no longer had a back wall! But you have to admire their devotion to cleaning up their neighborhoods. I just hope they didn’t detonate separate bombs for such frivolous reasons!

Yes, they certainly thought the explosions were worth it if they could teach Americans to clean their houses. Crazy. I couldn’t help posting it when I saw it! 🙂

I lived in Clovis, New Mexico for four years and they are still getting radiation from the dessert in White Sands. Yipes!

Really? Wow, I never thought of that … Yipes, indeed!

Yeah. I was pregnant there. Nearly lost the baby.

She’s very intelligent but suffers from ADHD and has asthma. AND she’s due to give birth any day now!

I’ll send a special thought her way … you’ve certainly given me food for thought, as they say. I honestly want to thank you for that!

Thanks! Many blessings to you!

Oh my goodness, propaganda films are something else. Remember you are doomed if you leave a newspaper lying around your home, and you will be saved if you put a plastic cover on your chair. Did they honestly think “tidy housekeeping” would save them after what happened in Japan only a few years earlier? Wow. That was really interesting.

I thought that was pretty funny about the newspaper and the plastic covered chair! LOL 🙂
