    I hope that you had “Heard it through the Grapevine”

    There are commercials and the there are commercials. Will Vinton made some great ones. Will’s creations moved well past the success of commercials into movies and “shorts” that made people smile.

    Most of today’s commercials have me running for the remote.


    Will Vinton, filmmaker and animator who created the California Raisins, dies at 70

    It is quite liberating that I have reached the age where I simply don't give a $$$T whether I offend someone with the things I like!

    Well Gail, you should feel ashamed. Every raisin is a small part of a bottle of wine that never happened.

    I agree Gail, but it was so long ago that I don't remember my age at the time.
