I don't even know what kefir is!

And 8 glasses of milk!!!!!! I can barely finish my one tall glass that I have on occasion with food.

Kefir = good stuff! Love the Lifeway brand (plain, not flavored). Comes in quarts in the dairy section. Thick, creamy, an agreeable sourness something between yogurt and buttermilk. Lots of good probiotics, too. If you buy any, just be sure to shake it reeeeally well...

I'm going to look for it and try it. Love trying new things!

:D You may like it. Lifeway has strawberry and blueberry flavors, I think, as well as the plain. I get the plain to avoid the sugar and just because I like the natural flavor of the kefir itself.

Behold! This made up story of a lady we drew in this picture. Restore deafness without an apparatus or drugs (not really sure what drugs they're talking about, anyway)! And I wonder if this lady who allegedly heard "peculiar noises" in her head was just becoming senile? Send away for this book with the magic spell needed in order to restore perfect hearing! :lol:

That's an interesting one. I wonder how many took the bait! "Observe her delight in this hypothetical illustration" Lol. Somehow that seems a little less than convincing. The precursor of: "I'm not a doctor, but I play one on TV" perhaps?

Yes, the alleged "peculiar noises" could be psychological, or it could be tinnitus, though I don't know if that would be termed "peculiar".

Whew. Here's a bad one. With one illustration it manages to be viciously racist while at the same time promoting two different stereotypes—all of which has nothing to do with GE ranges. :?

It makes me wonder why they wanted to go certain ways in advertising. It does get your attention, but come on! They couldn't have thought of ANYTHING else? I wonder when that is from?

Hard to tell for sure, but from the look of the appliance, I'd guess late 40's-early 50's.
