It's lovely! I might change the wallpaper in theory, but everything else, including the rug on the floor, is nice.

Talking about fashion though....do we think that the decade we're in now will have people looking back in 40 years asking "did all the males go to the same gym where the uniform was skinny grey trackie pants and North Face jackets?"

That one isn't particularly "70's". In fact, you could walk into something like that today.

The first two though..."Seventiestastic". I can almost hear this coming from the sitting room.

Virtue-signaling types will not approve of this 1974 Burger King TV advert...

...so I’ll post it up for that precise reason.

maybe that might be exactly the point.


There is nothing to be outraged about, but someone today who cried long enough, loud enough, and to the right people could find something to be "offended" by it.
