C&HHere’s a commercial for C & H Sugar that originally aired in the 1950’s, but re-ran in the mid-ninties. The song is pretty catchy and that little girl doing the hula is the cutest.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on September 29, 2008 by TheDiversePurse

Under the code name “Burlington”, this massive underground city (measuring a kilometer in length and containing about 60 miles of road) was built in the late 1950’s in case of a nuclear strike. It had the technology and resources to house 4,000 government personnel for three months, but the complex was never used (notice the new yet unwrapped chairs). Link!
