Pepsi Serving Tray 1905
Healthful This is the oldest Advertising/Serving tray Pepsi produced. American "pop" culture can be reflected in the history of soda pop. From soda's early days touted as a medicinal aid, as it searched for a marketing niche, to today's perception of it as an unhealthy product that should be banned or taxed out of existence. That's a wide dietary swing. The truth is that it is neither. People like it. In my opinion it was never medicinal, or is it today's health curse. Pop can be indicative of an overall bad diet, or may it be a friendly social mixer without alcohol.

Scenes from the Alarc 2013 Polar Plunge, Excelsior MN
The temperature at jump time was 10 below zero. The frigid stillness was daunting and kept most of the spectators relaxed and warm in the nearby lounge. Mixing with the crowd and the press was the founder, Bill Wenmark, who exhibited a congeniality that gave the event a personal charm. This was his, and two others, 20th jump. He displayed his achievement with an "Orca 20" hooded warming robe. Very handsome. ALARC founder Bill Wenmark Just before his 23rd dive. Under the cool and watchful eye of the Southlake Minnetonka Police.
