The longest year in history



was 1972.

Remember the power of three? There's one of those going on again, this time it's with the year 1972.

First off - Moody Blues, Nights in White Satin - a song I thought, from the very first day I heard  remembering hearing it, was a cheesy 70s rambling poem song about King Arthur so I paid no attention to it. Anyway, it popped up at me on the weekend and I took the time to listen to the lyrics - which are everything but knights in white satin. New old favourite!

Then I was looking at old Honda motorbikes online and came across this vintage ad from 1972. The truck and camper (and mini bike) equate to the elimination of the living in a van down by the river scenario created by the Vancouver rental pool.



Finally, Tuesday night I was looking at residential architecture and up pops this beauty. West Vancouver's Helmut Eppich house designed in 1972 by Arthur Erickson Architects (and sold in 2010 for $4.8 million.)
