THE STANFORD AGENCY "LION MANURE"

I worked at the Stanford Agency, in the 1970s.  The agency was named after Bob Stanford, and was 7-Eleven's in-house agency from 1956 - 1989.
In 1989, when the Southland Corporation parent company of the Stanford Agency went bankrupt, thousands of artifacts such as reels of commercials were destroyed.
I am helping lead an effort to gather as many of those artifacts together and hopefully put them into a collection at a major academic library.
Other writers and producers have helped us gather hundreds of commercials.
We are also writing a book about what it was like to work in a place in which the kind of humor you can listen to if you play this QR Code below was required on a daily basis!!

Stay tuned as the book gets published.

IN THE MEANTIME,.
Here is a:60 RADIO COMMERCIAL - "LION MANURE" written by the late BOB STANFORD. Voices are BOB STANFORD, DAN McCURDY,  and SUZI HUMPHRIES.

ARDUOUS कठिन beschwerlich ardu 艱鉅 つらい и взрывоопасных مشکل

WHO AM I?
     I hope that this is an arduous time for you.  Arduous, or “tough” times mean you are being challenged and tested by life.
     How much “grit” do you have? Grit is comprised of determination, willingness to withstand the pain. To call forth determination, or grit means that you are willing to sacrifice for your goal.
     Big goals call forth big challenges.
     That means you are rising to the challenges by growing, learning, gaining experiences. The more difficult the experience, the harder you have to work.  The harder you work, the greater the capacities you develop. The greater capacities, the more you can accomplish and achieve. That means your life can become more abundant. The more abundant your outer life becomes, the more inner strength you have.
    
WHY AM I HERE?
     The challenges we receive lead us to the fate we have for our life. That fate and those experiences are directed by the star our spirit self has chosen to follow.
     Is it you who is finding your fate, or is your fate finding you?
     Is it your star which you are following? Or, is the star leading you, drawing you forward into the future you know nothing about?
     As you move forward on your path, you may begin to realize that we must have challenges, a path, fate and a star, otherwise, our struggles seem random and meaningless.

WHAT DO I WANT?
     What is the gift we receive? We receive the giver.
     Who is the giver?

“I feel my star,
My star finds me,
I feel my fate,
My fate finds me.

My life and the wide world are one.

Life grows more abundant for me.
Life grows more radiant within me.
Life grows more arduous for me.”
-   Rudolf Steiner

     This is a time of testing.
     Why in the world would anyone want their lives to be more arduous?

WE NEED MORE GENE AUTRY COWBOY CODE

          Gene Autry – The original “straight shooting” cowboy star of radio, television and film. Autry created “The Cowboy Code” for the “young” (or old) listeners of his radio program:
1.         The Cowboy must never shoot first, hit a smaller man, or take unfair advantage.
2.         He must never go back on his word, or a trust confided in him.
3.         He must always tell the truth.
4.         He must be gentle with children, the elderly, and animals.
5.         He must not advocate or possess racially or religiously intolerant ideas.
6.         He must help people in distress.
7.         He must be a good worker.
8.         He must keep himself clean in thought, speech, action, and personal habits.
9.         He must respect women, parents, and his nation's laws.
10.       The Cowboy is a patriot.[1]
            The Cowboy Path is a path of self-directed moral behavior which we can use to guide our vision, our inspiration. This is the kind of thing Aristotle would have suggested to young Athenian “cowboys” with his admonition, to “Be Good, Do Good.” This also rolls along side the “12 Steps” program or other moral anti-addiction programs practiced today.
