Not too long ago I bought a box of old magazines from the 70s and 80s. I find it fascinating and often educational to look through them. Call it cultural archeology, semiology, or an exploration of things that made up the world I once knew and which shaped my psyche. Those amongst you who are sympathetic to what I'm talking about will understand. In this particular issue of Ladie's Home Journal from February 1983 I was delighted to find, amongst the ads for Maxi Pads, cigarettes, weight loss products, and salad dressings, an article about the stars of the television show One Day at a Time. Ed and Valerie Bertinelli had recently gotten married and the write up includes some candid photos of them in domestic newlywed bliss. There's not much to the text, though Valerie mentions that Ed's Mother was an excellent cook with an expertise in spicy Indonesian food. It sounds like there was something of an "Odd Couple" dynamic going on from the beginning, as Valerie was a neat freak, though Ed was slob who had to spend two days cleaning up his music room to impress her Father when her parents visited. I'll bet I'm the first AGFer to ever reference Ladie's Home Journal.
