Old Time Sunday Newspaper Flyers

Four advertising flyers have recently been added to my classic newspaper site, STLPapers.epizy.com. They’re all complete and in full color. From 1975, there are flyers from K Mart and Walgreens. Techies will love the two flyers from 1990 – Best Buy and Radio Shack flyers feature the best of 22 year old technology.

Your House Painted For Free

Adzookie states on their site –

We’re looking for houses to paint. In fact, paint is an understatement. We’re looking for homes to turn into billboards. In exchange, we’ll pay your mortgage every month for as long as your house remains painted. Here are a few things we’re looking for. You must own your home. It cannot be rented or leased. We’ll paint the entire outside of the house, minus the roof, the windows and any awnings. Painting will take approximately 3 – 5 days. Your house must remain painted for at least three months and may be extended up to a year. If, for any reason, you decide to cancel after three months or if we cancel the agreement with you, we’ll repaint your house back to the original colors. If you’re prepared for the bright colors and stares from neighbors just complete the submission form below. We review every submission. If your home meets our criteria, an Adzookie team member will contact you.

Egads! Using an operating system is going to become like attending an online CLE, requiring you to pay attention enough to click to continue at the appropriate time? Even worse, in the version where the operating system disables functionality not only will you need to click to continue, but you are going to have to stop doing whatever it is that you are doing and pay attention to the advertisement!

Can’t wait to see what Apple does with OS11.
