As Americans mourn the passing of Neil Armstrong, earlier in the month of August, NASA has breathed new life in the American spirit by the success of the Mars mission - Curiosity

Free - Free
A trip

To Mars
For 900
Empty jars


Baby boomers may remember that little ditty from the shaving cream - before the company was bought up by Philip Morris.

This teaser is a continuation in my series -

American Ingenuity (AI).

Because of formating issues, the bulk of this article is at my blog - where embedded links and videos can be displayed.

But this article in the theme of American Ingenuity will connect the dots with the following -

* The clever Burma Shave road signs - with the promise of the free trip to Mars and how one customer took them up on it and the company came good on it - back in 1955.

* The passing of astronaut Neil Armstrong August 25, 2012 and a lament of America in Decline

* The triumph of the landing of the Mars rover (August 5, 2012) - Curiosity, reviving the spirit of American Ingenuity and Exceptionalism

To continue reading about this, you may

* cut and paste this link (AD doesn't do many outside links)

or click on the link at the bottom of the page.

Please, please feel free to comment ...
