For the past several months I'd catch one of several ads Honda was running on TV.  A real catch 'upbeat' jingle with varying appropriate lyrics for the particular product...

and all the time I kept thinking "I 'know' that jingle".

I caught this one last night and all of a sudden it hit me that this was from a Christmas movie from yesteryear!

Happy Honda Days Sales Event “Holiday Road-Trip - Fit/HR-V” :30


So, I got to trying to push my feeble mind back to try to 'recall' the jingle and the movie.

I think I finally figured it out!

The song was on one of the National Lampoon Vacation movies too.  I was surprised it originated from Lindsey Buckingham.

I was surprised when I figured out the connection too.  Sure is a catchy tune though :) :) :)

I wonder if Honda has to pay him for using the tune?

The video I posted is a trailer for that first 'vacation' video.  I was originally thinking that it was the holiday vacation one but it was the original.

They had the huge ugly station wagon that broke down regularly.  I'm surprised Honda would risk the 'tie' to the movie.

An interesting sidenote...   a young gal that was born here in Monroe got some interesting exposure in her career!

I found this yesterday and what I've watched so far has been very interesting.  I wasn't very big when they were building the bridge and although I followed the progress I really didn't comprehend the time constraints they were working on at the time.

Does anyone know if there were any Monroe area workers that worked on the project?

With a little more daylight it would be possible to have seen me in the back yard drinking a beer.

Hopefully, you'll be dressed for it and have an insulated koozie on the beer so it don't freeze solid.

This is an interesting YouTube I've been watching bits and pieces of while I 'sit out' some of the cold weather.

I'm sure it's not for everyone but gives some good insight to how we got to where we are today.

One of my pet peeves is people texting (and quite often just talking on their phone) while they're driving...

this video makes a great point!!!

Keep your eyes open and watch for the dog to walk behind her...
