News is really making a lot of headlines for Florida mrs. occur we haven't seen in awhile gas they weren't analyzed. Does question the timing of this because they are gas prices are likely to be higher the next couple of years but I think it's just Ford's way of saying you know. We're hip Burrell event we're cool. It was certainly generate a lot of buzz fans can't wait for the Fort Bragg that in his bed at the dealership cents ethylene iconic. Car yes you be. Interesting to see who I think what I think that fifty something male isn't really gonna love this character because they can relive their youth so I think there's a lot of hype and excitement over this one who is not taking it back to the eighties when we're talking fashion so we went back to the big bank holds and dig out some things don't like Fister and that I can see why with so that this is the sort of been going on the fashion industry for some time. But now it looks like it's really yours so yes the shoulder pads the rock all the denim skirts. Even the Fanny packs out. Some people don't like this trend but it's definitely out there you it's been walking around and noticed. It's it's sticking. Okay I'm CN of the eighties fashion I don't know how how appropriate would be for the workplace but I guess you can incorporate little elements highlight these things about it the Fanny packs knots in my not so much and make them. OK and vinyl records are making a retirement percent to a sixteen. It was a banner year for them because of David Bally's the final record I really put vinyl record sales over the top.

Thing here is I think a lot of things are coming back it's just movie inspired trolls for example that some Libyan starting point it's really popular now. So that's part of it but there's also the big nostalgic element with a parent in the parents want the kids to have the same sort of enjoyment where the Tories that they did growing. It gives them a sense of you know bits is an emotional attachment kind of things so yes we're saying a lot of that and it's morphing out beyond toys is going to lunch boxed merchandise clothing so.
