Solar Eclipse

The last solar eclipse happened back in 1999, I was 16 and enjoying my summer holidays after finishing my GCSE exams – ahhh the good old days.  Most of the shops back then sold out of special eclipse viewing glasses so I resorted to viewing it through a reflection in a plant pot filled with water, obviously I had a lot of time on my hands.  In contrast, here at GRIN HQ we were lucky enough to see a glimpse of the eclipse this morning on our door step whilst looking through the office’s tinted windows – cue cheesy photograph…

I also noticed that various brands cleverly exploited todays phenomenon in their advertising. Unsurprisingly most of my favourites eclipse-related ads were related to food and drink – two things which I am very fond of.  Take a look at some of my favourites below;
