Thanksgiving, pride and a young lady with a notebook



HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY TO ALL MY AMERICAN READERS ...
AND IF YOU'RE NOT AMERICAN, THEN FIND SOMETHING WHERE YOU ARE TO BE THANKFUL ABOUT ...
AND THEN START A GRATITUDE JOURNAL OR DIARY

MEANWHILE ...

Back on November 7 I wrote about a colourful edition of Field Notes Brand.As these hail from the USA I meant to comment on how national pride is seemingly alive and well and far more evident than over here in Britain.

Take look at this legend across the back cover of each of those Field Notes.



Wonder why we don't make more noise about our home country's design, innovation and products? It may happen on our exported goods but I reckon a little bit of national pride would appeal to shoppers here too. Some supermarket food has a Union Jack label ... but why stop there?

I have just remembered that traditional English notebook brand 'Silvine' which I can recall from my childhood and a quick surf revealed that they are still using their original putrid terracotta colour and logo. Their history is quite interesting at www.silvine.com/about-us/history/and yes, they DO have a flag and made in Britain  legend on some belly bands. Here's the evidence ...

And finally for now, a happy shot from elsewhere on the web. No matter what age we reach, old seafarers can always appreciate a well presented young lady!
Gee! She's even using a notebook and a camera. Now that really IS cool!
