Not me ,altho I was a natueral blonde in the 50's.
"Hello Seventh Fleet" look is still alive just buried.
Ever heard of
"Snow on the roof and fire in the furnace"? thats whats going on here. Passion goes to the garden.

At that particular moment in time, it seems that "passion" (or a bawdy equivalent) was on the sofa.

(Let the record show that I'm not being judgemental, since I spent decades as a bottle blonde in lipstick, esp. in the late 70's disco places, with a collection of high heels that any diva would envy. Ugly true confessions !!!)

So I wonder if 3D will really catch on this time. It's neat and all, but I hate paying the higher price, and to me it's really just as good to see a show in 2D. I don't really feel like I'm missing out all that much.

Jo, it seems no one learns anything from their elder's experiences. They have to find out all this stuff on their own. Those tats are pretty baaaad (and I'm not using that term to mean cool)!!!!! No tats for me, thanks much. I have a SIL who is addicted to getting them. Adds a couple more every year. She likes how it feels when they're putting it on. Won't go any further with that one!

I am not a temprence person by any means but alcoholics are sad and tradgic. Ex SIL proclaimed he was a "functioning alcoholic" for years .His friends and family tried to get him treatment.
He asked his wife for a divorce and lost 2 jobs. He still wasnt looking at the big picture.

Alcohol is also a depressant. He shot himself just before Crismiss. I was relieved when he asked my daughter for a divorce.She quickly agreed. Little did he know we were all relieved,he had made her life utterly mizerable for 23 years.

He believed the divorce was his last act of controle. How naieve. He wanted to come back 3 years later. He was gently turned away for 6 months. I guess the depression got him.

Sorry this isnt much Entertainment.
Lets move on with the guy who can sing Queen from the back of a squad car.LOL

I read The Hunger Games and couldn't put it down. It was awesome! Takes place in the future, where our country is basically run like a dictatorship, and they have these games every so many years (2, I think it is), where they choose 2 young people from each district to participate. They have no choice about it, they are forced into it. It's a game where they are put into this huge arena with varied terrain. They have to live by their wits and survive. Kill or be killed. Only one person survives in the end, and is richly rewarded. It's a game that is televised all over the districts. By the second book you find out some people are trying to rise up against the government. I have not read book three yet.

Victor, I enjoyed Captain America, too. I love the Marvel movies.

Bill, I love Shameless also.

I saw the season finale of The Walking Dead a few weeks ago. Awesome, awesome, awesome!

Curry was the "peacekeeper" for over a decade...not much else.

She was over-promoted past her skill level, and thus, bit the dust.

(I'm hoping to see an environment in the future that is purely rated on news-worthiness, not about personalities.)

Cyd Charisse was tall for a dancer, and was forced by producers/directors/leading men to wear flats (shoes that were not high heels), in order to look height-appropriate.

As many people know, this is not an elegant look, and she was annoyed by it (but probably more comfortable).

Especially with Fred Astaire, if memory is correct.

"Interestingly in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Europeans in North America were far taller than those in Europe and were the tallest in the world. The original indigenous population of the Plains Native Americans was also among the tallest populations of the world at the time. Several nations, including many nations in Europe, have now surpassed the US, particularly the Netherlands, and Scandinavian nations. "

Info from Disabled World

the men's average is now 5'10" and I think not too long ago it was 6'...I need to find that info, read it somewhere

"Most of the average height gains came during the 1960s and 1970s. In fact, men in their 40s were slightly taller than men in their 30s and 20s in 2002"


If 40 year olds were TALLER than men in their 20's or 30's in 2002, that means the older generations was taller

Don't know spotify. You create your own stations by choosing an artist. Then they play their songs, as well as others similar in type. You give each song an up or down thumb and it creates the playing list. A down thumbed song will never be played again. You put up with some ads and an occasional break, but it's very tolerable. It is free so you expect that.

I was of mixed feelings about this post, but finally decided that it was entertaining (to everyone but me).

We had our dress rehearsal of H.M.S. Pinafore last night. The costume crew was decimated by illness and they barely got me Sir Joseph Porter's silk trousers by show time. All went well til the final curtain calls. As I stepped up and bowed, the temporary stitching gave way and my pants dropped to my ankles! (Luckily I had white tights on underneath.) Unfortunately the majority of the audience and cast thought I had planned it that way! I may never convince them that it was a wardrobe malfunction.

LOL! Too funny!

Watched Gran Torino with my sister and nephew yesterday. Love that movie. Clint Eastwood is usually really good.

Waiting anxiously for the 3rd season of The Walking Dead to start. Not for another month.

And to think these are the best of the best.The show was a bit draggy.I was able to go to sleep at 9 o'clock. I watched Homeland.Thats the kind of gripping writting that puts regular cable shows on the back burner.

Hi folks. I had a great time at the unveiling of the 22 foot tall Rocky Marciano statue yesterday. Did I post a link to the statue assembly blog last week? That was fascinating but the big hoopla was Sunday.
Like the awards shows it was too long but this means a lot to our fair city. The guests gathered at Georges Cafe for lunch to arrive in good spirits. Here's boxing promoter Don King looking at Larry Holmes.

Not a fan of awards shows here, either.

Great shots and blog, Andy! Thanks for sharing.

Went to see Finding Nemo in 3D this past week. Love that movie. Personally I don't care to pay extra for 3D, but I was taking one of my special needs ladies to see it, so it's paid out of petty cash.

Only a few more weeks till the Walking Dead 3rd season premiere. Can't wait!

To me there's not a whole lot of difference seeing a movie in 3D or 2D. I enjoy a movie just as much in 2D.

Have not heard of Last Resort, Jen. I wanted to see Vegas tonight on CBS, but got caught up in a movie on Netflix called Girl Interrupted. That was really good. Will catch Vegas on demand another day.

I started to watch Vegas last night and totally couldn't understand anything that was going on, which I guess is a good thing I don't need to get into another show

That depends of how you look at it, Jen. I really love the movie, regardless of whether or not it's in 3D, so it was nice seeing it on the big screen. If you spending the extra dollars doesn't leave you short, go for it.

I will catch Vegas soon. How was Last Resort?

Don, I have not seen Hugo.

I saw a very good documentary on demand on Netflix today called The Elephant In The Living Room, about the rapidly growing problems of people who keep exotic pets. They particularly focused on one man who lived in Ohio and kept a pair of African lions, one of which he raised from a cub, a male named Lambert, and a female he got for companionship for his male. He was very attached to them, especially to Lambert. He had them for about 4 years, and about the third year the female had a litter of 4 cubs, one of which died. He raised them like they were his kids. Anyhow, he eventually had to give them up, as caring for them was becoming too physically demanding for him. I won't say anything more in case anyone else wants to watch it. I highly recommend it. It was really done very well.

I don't believe in keeping exotic animals as pets, most of them, anyhow, and especially if the person is not capable of taking proper care of them, as in good vet care, etc. But I especially thing the more dangerous ones should not be messed with. What's wrong with domestic dogs, cats, pigs, horses, etc?

Yes, dangerous to keep "exotics"; illegal for a reason !

A guy in NYC showed up in an emergency room some years back with 2 puncture wounds from the incisors of a "big cat" (a tiger or something), and the authorities had a heck of a time shutting down his apartment!

(Remember, our tax dollars pay for these chores.)

Why do people skip common sense?

BA, unfortunately it's not illegal in many states to keep these exotic, dangerous pets. That man in Ohio who got the lions did so when it was legal. A friend gave him a cub. Anyhow, since then they have passed, or are trying to pass a law now making it illegal. They said there are more tigers in the state of TX than there are in India in the wild. Crazy!

I saw a great documentary today about the elephant keepers in India called Queen Of The Elephants. Indian elephants are endangered in the wild. Most elephants over there in captivity are treated with great respect and love and care, unlike most elephants kept for circuses. Those elephants have a sad life.

Speaking of elephants, here's a great story of a friendship between an elephant and a dog. http://youtu.be/cBtFTF2ii7U
