Nov. 16 is the 100th anniversary of the patent for the design of the Coke bottle.
The design patent is US 48,160 to one A. [Alexander] Samuelsson [of the Root Glass Company; the patent application sketch was made without the signature embossed Coca-Cola script lettering. ].

The motivational issue was that competitor brands like Koka-Nola, Ma Coca-Co, Toka-Cola and even Koke copied or only slightly modified the spencerian script Coca Cola logo on generic bottles. The Trustees of the Coca-Cola Bottling Association sent a challenge to glass companies to create a “bottle so distinct that you would recognize if by feel in the dark or lying broken on the ground.” As inspiration for a distinctive bottle design, the container was said to have been modelled after a component of the Coca-Cola beverage: the Cocoa Bean Pod, which has a similar bulging middle.

The color of the bottle was to be German green, which later morphed to Georgia green.
Color trademarks were another 80 years away. But note on April 12th, 1961, the Coca-Cola bottle was recognized as a trademark, in part supported by the fact that a 1949 study showed that fewerthan 1% of Americans could not identify the bottle of Coke by shape alone.

Returning to Sunday Morning, note Nov. 22, 2015 is the "food issue" of Sunday Morning.
Recall for example, from IPBiz of November 18, 2012:

Charles Osgood, in a red blazer and green pants, introduced the stories for November 18, 2012, the "food issue" of CBS Sunday Morning. Eat, drink and be merry. Lee Cowan did "feeding frenzy," the cover story, with Wolfgang Puck. Second, Barry Peterson, marijuana as a food ingredient. Third, Michelle Miller with John Goodman doing food in New Orleans (easy does it). Fourth, Martha Teichner, food matches. Fifth, Bill Geist on "The Big Texan Steak Ranch."

Moment of nature. Field of sunflowers in the village of Lempaut in the south of France. This "moment" is a recycle from June 28, 2015: We leave you this Sunday in a field of sunflowers in Lempaut, in the south of France.
