She is Ann Turner Cook , born today (20 Nov) in 1926.

This 88-year-old American great-grandmother is the original Gerber baby. She’s also a mystery novelist (as in mystery novels, geddit).

Man, they sure know how to pick a baby model in those days! She looks great even now.

As a Gerber baby myself, this woman is my hero.

She turned from a sketch into a person — how crazy is that…?

What the heck is a Gerber???

The food was … well … so-so, but the bottles were fantastic.

Give it a few more years and she’ll be back to eating Gerber herself and using diapers, if not already. (Sorry, just kidding.)

If she’s that old … R.I.P. Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben

You can read about Gerber’s (not-such-a-big-deal) branding blunder in Africa.

Site Update: Wallpaper for November

Saturday 15 November 2014, 7.06am HKT


6.45am local time, 24°C (75°F), cool and slightly breezy

BECAUSE of a subsystem error routine in my right shoulder, I’ve not updated the background image for last month and only now getting round to the November one.

It’s not the best of wallpapers, but you get the idea…
