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 !!!)
Thats the most important part,Honesty. I see young people making the same dead end choices I did and wonder why no one has learned anything.
Luckily my past isnt as earth shattering at 76 as it was when I was in my late 20's.
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!
Had not heard about Hunger Games until days ago. Kids killing kids? Do we need to show this in a movie when it's happening every day in gangs in so many cities? What am I missing? Did anyone read the books?
My daughter read the book. She was jazzed about it.
I am not a "reader" but did like the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I have the latest in the series on disc ,waiting on netflix.
I saw the whole series made in Sweden i think.
it is a movie and the hype is just crap - there have been many movies in the past that had controversial story lines - they are selling tickets and the politically correct crowd is aghast - oh my...can't believe anyone pays attention to stuff like this
I didnt realize he was soooooo annoying until this season. He is cruiseing on his old accounts and not really active in the firm. I see trouble brewing too. Don doesnt like him. Heck he doesnt even like himself.
Ohhh gawd! ! ! I love drunks who are trying to sound so profound and cerebrial. Its ironic how when they are the least pulled together,they try to sound sooooo deep and with it.
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!
Sorry, I left that out didn't I? Yes, I would. It is marketed as horror, but it is more than that. It isn't out to scare you, not to me at least, but tips its hat to horror movies. Kind of hard to explain :) But yes, I recommend it (my husband hates horror and was totally fine with it - didn't jump once).
True, but I heard so much about this movie over the years. Was expecting a bit better. Some parts were downright laughable. He made the mom look so stupid. And the effects were horrible, even though this was many years after Star Wars and the other great effects movies so the technology was there.
There are some good marriages in the entertainment business.
Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon,Amy Maddigan and Ed Harris to name 2, or who knows,I am not a follower of the tabloids.
I just remembered another one.Mark Harmon and Pam Dawber 27 years.
Ahhhhhh the men!! never wanted to look short.
Not in the dancing catagory but Humphry Bogart was not as tall as Lauren Bacall and I heard
Allan Ladd had to stand on a box to kiss a girl.
Real women dont bother about those issues now days.
"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
I never dated anyone shorter than 5'10" I find short guys particularly annoying
you totally needed to see JP in the theater when it came out. No one had seen effects like that before. Seeing it after that doesn't totally work. Except as a warning when they talk about cloning dinos :P
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.
Jeepers, I'm strange, because I loved BOTH of 'em, Johnny Pesky (the "Pesky Pole" is named after him at Fenway Park), and Helen Gurley Brown...for my antiquated sexual liberation...(I was born in the 1950's).
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.
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.

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 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!
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.
