Groundhog Day - Random Topics
After going through some bad winter weather, I took heart that my 'regional' groundhog, General Beuregard 'predicted' an early end to winter but right after the 'prediction' our area got hit by even WORSE winter weather THEN I found out that General Beuregard's actually a STUFFED critter. Yep, they actually paid someone to 'interpret' a stuffed critter's 'prediction'. Boo! At least Punxsatawney's Phil's an actual living creature. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 28, 2015, 12:28 pm

Avengers, The - TV Shows
Patrick Macnee just went to his reward at age 93. He had been a soldier in WWII and saw so much carnage that he refused to have his character [Steed] carry a gun so they asked him what would he have as a weapon and Mr. Macnee replied in that desperate moment 'an umbrella'! YES, that's how Steed got to have one as a weapon. RIP, Steed. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 28, 2015, 12:20 pm

Sex and the City - TV Shows
Correct me if I'm wrong but, from what little I stomached of it, it seemed to be about a group of entitled, tacky backbiters who obsessed over first world problems and dissed the men in their lives for being as shallow and one-dimensional as they themselves were to men. The only good thing about this, as far as I could tell, is that it had a catchy theme song. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 28, 2015, 12:15 pm

World War II - Random Topics
Infyrin, You just rattled the WRONG cage! I very recently lost my father in his late 80's who was a World War II veteran. Hence not just for his sake but for the sakes of his comrades, our nation, the world and generations to come, I will talk about how and WHY this war was so vital and not leave out its shadowsides as long as I have breath in me and a single memory cell in my noggin! I used to think what you're thinking about the US Civil War but I've come to realize that it's important for us to know about all its sides and intricacies since there's not a single person in our nation not impacted by what happened 150 years ago [yes even those who had no ancestors here back then] even though I never knew anyone who remembered it [though my parents did as children]. Well, World War II has had its impact on every part of the world and it's echoes can STILL be felt so both to understand WHY and how to learn lessons to improve our world, it's vital that we keep talking about it. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 22, 2015, 12:34 pm

Leonard Nimoy - Celebrities
May I add that if Mr. Nimoy didn't use his abilities to turn what could have easily been a one-note automaton into someone who virtually every viewer could relate in many ways, I seriously doubt "Star Trek" would have lasted 13 episodes. There I said it. R I P and Shalom, Mr. Nimoy. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 16, 2015, 3:41 pm

Never knew about the inventor's deal. Just never saw the appeal of buying dried mini shrimp that would just float around then die after a short time. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 16, 2015, 3:35 pm

Nostalgia - Random Topics
I'm wondering where I can apply for a transfer to 1979 since there's a LOT I'd like to warn folks about. Just saying. .. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 16, 2015, 3:33 pm

Texas - Random Topics
DolFan, I HAVE been to Texas a few times and I can say that that's only true of the half of the state between El Paso and Ozona. Between Ozona and San Antonio, the Hill Country while not lush, iis greener and somewhat reminds me of East Tennessee's Cumberland Plateau- and San Antonio itself is well worth a dedicated vacation spot since it's chock full of good sites like the Alamo [a wonderfully preserve Spanish mission] to the River Walk to Germantown [a German colony started there as early as the 1830's]. With all these influences, there's quite a good variety of foods to indulge in. Around Dallas and Fort Worth, it's somewhat like the Plains. Galveston is an amazing beach barrier island but seeing the remains of the pre 20th century city, one is reminded of the USA's most deadly historic natural disaster to date. Anyway, there's a great deal worth seeing in Texas if one knows to look! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 16, 2015, 3:32 pm

Father Knows Best - TV Shows
spacer, I liked the show too- and I always thought the interaction between the parents Jim and Margaret was cool. Still, I have to admit that it might have been better had it ended a few years earlier when poor Kitten went through rather awkward teens [though, it turns out they were FAR less traumatic onscreen than off for her]. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 4, 2014, 10:23 am

Ambien - Random Topics
Big Al, TOTALLY agree! Why do so many folks get into stuff that even their own disclaimers show has WORSE 'side effects' than what it purports to cure? And whatever happened to just drinking hot cocoa, taking a hot bath and curling up to a good book when one had trouble sleeping? Works for me and I don't make the docs or pill companies any richer! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 4, 2014, 10:20 am

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo - TV Shows
I couldn't change the channel fast enough when the COMMERCIALS for it flashed by. To each their own but IMO what a NASTY show this was and I feel sorry for the poor girl who was badly exploited by her so called parents AND this network. Yeah, I'm relieved they cancelled it [and what a rotten thing her so called mother did to her and her sister] but why did this network ever air this in the first place? TLC USED to be The Learning Channel and I can recall when it showed FANTASTIC actual documentaries about NASA and the space program. Is it too much to hope that they may start working back toward their former quality programming? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 4, 2014, 10:16 am

Great Space Coaster, The - TV Shows
For some reason, they had Marvin Hamlish be on something like half the episodes. Yeah, I know he was a talented composer but, as a performer, he made George Lucas seem scintillating. What was up with that? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 15, 2014, 3:05 pm

Casey Kasem - Celebrities
On June 15,2014 [Father's Day] Casey Kasem was released from this mortal coil at age 82 but all his talent and good works down the decades will keep him immortal. I also pray that a result of that sad last part of his life , folks will start treating Elder Abuse seriously and that will become PART of his legacy. RIP, Mr. Kasem. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 15, 2014, 2:49 pm

Casey Kasem - Celebrities
As of May 12, 2014, Mr. Casey Kasem's whereabouts are unknown and even Mrs. Kasem's lawyer claims to have no idea except to say that Mrs. Kasem has had Mr. Kasem taken out of the US to an unknown foreign locale and she has the 'right' to do that despite Mr. Kasem's children [by his earlier union's] wanting to see that he's okay. The judge in this case has ordered Mr. Kasem to be found- and the scary thing is that the man's in his 80's has advanced Parksinson's Disease and can no longer talk so WHY has he been hidden from his children and possibly taken abroad [and how likely would that have been HIS idea]? I had nothing against Mrs. Jean Kasem and thought she was okay in 'The Tortellis' but for her to evidently do this to his family [hom no one has alleged were a danger to him] is rather appalling IMO. What will it take for our nation to take Elder Abuse seriously? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 13, 2014, 12:11 pm

Wings - TV Shows
I never got the hype over this. It seemed a passable thing to watch once in a while but no great shakes to seek out. Oh, and I disliked how we were supposed to root for the snotty kid bro while jeer at the rival owner merely because the rival owner was fat and older. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 30, 2014, 1:46 pm

2010s - Random Topics
While there have been some incredible technological innovations in this decade, IMO it's not been without its problems. One thing I dislike a great deal is how no one is allowed to simply have quirks or foibles, they must have 'syndromes' which 'require' drugs and there are huge drives to push as many folks as possible to get hooked on them even having advertizements that tout said drugs as invaluable keys to getting the most out of life [even with the voiceovers spelling out that the side effects are often WORSE than what the drugs claim to cure]. How can we expect youth to want to be clean and sober when the message of 'you're doomed to be a miserable mess unless you get drugs to cure ALL your woes' get pushed down everyone's throats? Not only has Jefferson Airplane's 'White Rabbit' come to fruition but that movie "Road to Wellville" which appeared to satire the turn of the previous century's obsession with quack cures but, now appears to satirize OUR OWN. If there's anyone left in 50 years, they're wonder what was this decade THINKING via this philosophy! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 30, 2014, 1:32 pm

Olympic Games - Random Topics
Does anyone else find it incredible to think that yesterday [February 12,2014] it was 50F [10 Celcius] in Sochi and they were worried about all that ice and snow melting during athletic competitions while Atlanta and a good part of the US Southeast got pummeled by a crippling ice storm? Russia being warmer than Georgia,USA who'd have thunk it! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2014, 12:33 pm

Capital One - Random Topics
Mythigator, I agree that they've been long since worn out their welcome [as has Progressive's Flo] but at least they seem to no longer be running Alec Baldwin ones anymore so there's hope that it won't be too long before get the message that most folks are sick of the Vikings. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2014, 12:20 pm

Your Show Of Shows (The Sid Caesar Show) - TV Shows
On February 12, 2014, Sid Caesar died at age 91 and I know I've already discussed a good part of his legacy in the post below but I thought it would fitting to add something else worth noting. Anyone here recall the scene in "Blazing Saddles" in which this tough hombre punched out a HORSE? It may have seemed a physical impossibility for a person to be able to do that but it was based on an actual incident in which Sid Caesar himself punched out a horse on a dude ranch after it had gotten too jittery for his wife to ride! R.I.P. Mr. Caesar. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2014, 12:15 pm

Deadliest Catch - TV Shows
Has there been anything fun on the show since Phil Harris's death? Sad to say,IMO he was really the only reason to keep watching otherwise it was just ice,storms and arguments. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 23, 2014, 10:12 am
