Tang you very much!

TangI loved drinking Tang when I was a kid. It was a treat. Kool-Aid was our primary source of liquid refreshment. Grape and cherry were the hands down favorites. But, on special occasions, we’d get a glass of Tang…usually for breakfast. It was afterall, what the “astronauts drank on the way to the moon.” So, I guess it was ok for a me and my brother to drink it on our way to school.

This morning I was reading about the greatest Baby Boomer brands. Being a member of the Boomer Generation, I agreed with the writer UNTIL I realized Tang was not on the list. Dang! No Tang!

For some reason, I decided to do a little research about Tang. I like knowing odd ball things which I can use at a party to strike up a converstion with total strangers. “I was just reading the other day about Tang,”…

Here is something I wish I hadn’t read…and I quote, “lime and rust deposits often build up on the insides of dishwashers and pipes…citric acid will take off those lime and rust deposits…for a deliciously hands-off method, fill the detergent reservoir with the old-school drink Tang…the run your dishwasher through the cycle…no more sleepless nights freting about the inside condition of your dishwasher.”

I have a lot on my mind these days, starting an agency, getting kids through college, health care reform. But at least I know one thing for sure, when I am tossing and turning at night, it won’t be because I am freting about the inside condition of my dishwasher or colon. Thanks to Tang, both are obviously free and clear of rust and lime buildup.
