  1. Bernie, thank you for finally saying this. And yes, your voice is an instrument. Wear and tear on your singing voice is a difficult process to recover. The desire has to be there also. However, I could listen to a full CD or a concert of just Eric playing the piano.

  2. WHEN WE LAST SAW OUR HERO’S, THEY WERE INADVERTENTLY SENT TO A DESTINATION, BY AUNT CLARA OF BEWITCHED FAME, THAT MAY BE TOO MUCH TO HANDLE...OR IS IT EXACTLY WHAT THEY NEEDED... ERIC-“Wow, where the hell are we”? AMY-“Let’s take a look...” WALLY-“Holy cow...Let’s go out there and see if we can figure how to get out of here...” AS THE FOURSOME HEAD OUTSIDE, THEY RUN INTO A BEAUTIFUL LADY... KAY-“Hey? Who are you”... BEAUTIFUL LADY-“I’m Glinda and welcome to the Land of Oz”... ERIC-“Please help us...We are trying to get back home to Cleveland but through a series of circumstances, we ended up here... GLINDA-“All you have to do is follow the yellow brick road and the great Wizard of Oz will grant you one wish...So now you know...Just follow the yellow brick road...TaTa...” ALL FOUR-“Let’s follow the yellow brick road...” AS THE FOUR SET OUT ON THEIR JOURNEY TO OZ, THEY ENCOUNTER A GENTLEMAN... WALLY-“Hey sir, can you help us? My name is Wally and this is my wife Kay...and this is Eric and his wife Amy...and who are you ?... MAN...I’m Dr. Oz and you are in the Land of Oz... AFTER OUR FOURSOME EXPLAIN THEIR DILEMMA, DR. Oz tells them to simply follow the yellow brick road... ... AFTER OUR HERO’S HEAD OFF TO FOLLOW THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD, THEY ENCOUNTER ANOTHER GENTLEMAN... GENTLEMAN...”Ah, hi kids...Welcome to the land of Oz.. ... ERIC-Hey it’s Ozzie Nelson...Ricky’s dad...” OZZIE-“Oh, you guys know my son...Just follow the yellow brick road and you will meet him... WALLY-“Thanks Oz...Nice to meet you...” THE FOURSOME CONTINUE ONWARD AND MEET THEIR NEXT PERSON... ERIC-“Hey, look who we have here”... NEXT GENTLEMAN-“Hi guys... “I’m Ozzie Smith...Former baseball player known as Wizard of Oz...” AMY-“ AMY-“So you are the famous Wizard of Oz that will help us?” OZZIE SMITH-“”No-Follow the yellow brick road and he will help you...“ AS OUR HERO’S FOLLOW THE GOLDEN BRICKS, IT SUDDENLY COMES TO THEIR ATTENTION THAT THIS MIGHT BE SOME KIND OF JOKE... ERIC-“So far, everybody’s name is Oz and they keep telling us to follow the yellow brick road...I hope we don’t find Elton John...” WALLY-“It’s too late to turn back now...” ERIC-“Oh great...That could be the joke...Maybe we’ll find Cornelius Brothers and Sister Rose...Tee Hee”... AS THE FOURSOME REACH THEIR DESTINATION, THEY KNOCK ON THE DOOR AND ARE AMAZED AT THEIR GREETER... DOORMAN-“Welcome kids, come on in...Welcome to the Land of Oz”... AFTER THEY EXPLAIN THEIR DILEMMA, THEY ARE ASSURED BY OZZY OSBOURNE THAT GLINDA, THE GOOD WITCH WAS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT... OZZY-“But first, We have a big concert here tonite and you kids can be my guest...After the show, I will grant Whatever your wish is...” WALLY AND ERIC-“We are musicians too... We will really enjoy this...” OZZY-“Come with me backstage and you can see our performers for tonight...” WHEN THEY WALK BACKSTAGE, THEY ARE IN AWE OF WHO THEY SEE... ... ... WALLY-“This is incredible, Lennon, Harrison, David Bowie, Ricky Nelson and two members of my favorite all time band, Brian Jones and Charlie Watts of The Rolling Stones...We wish we could play with the Stones...” OZZY-Well, I told you that you had one wish and you’re wish is my command...You can play with the Stones...” ERIC”-No, that’s not the wish we wanted...We wish to go back home..” BUT IT WAS TOO LATE...THEIR DREAM WAS ABOUT TO TAKE PLACE... OZZY-“Goodbye and hope you have fun playing with the Stones...Yabba Dabba Doo” STAY TUNED FOR OUR NEXT EPISODE WHERE ERIC AND WALLY GET TO JAM WITH THE STONES, FRED AND BARNEY...

  7. Margaret Hamilton was fantastic as the Wicked Witch. She was hospitalized from pyrotechnic burns during the filming as was her stunt double. Later in life she came into our living rooms as Cora.

  9. Welcome, Rhonda! Your story is like everyone’s story…something about Eric’s music talked to all of us! Make yourself at home. Take your shoes off. We’ve built a pretty close community here. Above all else, have fun! Bernie

  10. Boy oh boy...This is gonna have to be a calculated response...With AOC firmly entrenched in the harem, we need to measure every word...Maybe, I will be able to formulate a proper politically correct response after Thanksgiving, maybe on Black Friday...DAMMIT...BLACK Friday...There's a violation right there... About the only automatic response that I could feel with certainty isn’t offensive is that, indeed, Hillary was much hotter when her body was docked at the White House...Oh God, another violation...WHITE House???...and I mentioned God...another violation...That’s three violations in one post and that, my friends? is a TRIFECTA...

  11. Well, to make a long story short. AOC was able to obtain a special presidential decree, forcing The James Harem to bake the cake (ie: allow AOC entry into The James Harem). A 2nd decree imposed an injunction forcing The James Harem to fire all of its members so AOC could have James all to herself. When told by The James Harem´s HR department, that AOC would have to apply and be accepted for entry based on merit, like all the other chicks. AOC laughed and stated she would be approved for entry because: she´s a chick, she´s Latino, she´s probably scudubied with another chick,...and most importantly, she´s screams and calls people false names louder than anybody else. The James Harem is a harem that respects reality, and had to agree thus that AOC´s case for entry was strong, so AOC was given exclusive membership. Then Hillary showed up!......(.. oh lands ..) ......she said she´d be damned if she´d allow some other chicks´ claws to draw blood from James´ back during scuduby time. So AOC scoffed, called her a dinasour and a carptebagger,...and told Hillary she ought to take her game to Panamá, where whales like her are appreciated... as whale watching is a big tourist attraction and the whales are given a lot of free food via propinas from the tourists. AOC further stated that given Hillary´s recent photos, it was clear she was requiring a lot of food to maintain her figure, and that the skim from the Clinton Foundation would likely not be able to finance that many calories, and that Hillary better, for her own calory upkeep, take advantage of the whale gig. AOC then bragged to Hillary about AOC´s record breaking time in the beer fetching trials at The James Harem´s most recent tryouts, to which Hillary had to concede defeat, as AOC is a very fast beer fetcher, and Hillary´s strong suit was always the toenail cutting event. Anyway, so Hillary acknowledged reality, wished James and AOC all the best, and finally mentioned to AOC to enjoy James´ gifts, and laughed, reminding AOC to remember that size is not important. So Hillary went off into the sunset guffawing...and guffawing....and guffawing, while, James and AOC got into the hot tub, AOC was looking very hot, while James was reminiscing about the good old pre-whale days with Hillary....and then....and then....and then.....oh lands.... As James began to put thoughts of Hillary to bed, and realize being in a hot tub with the smokin hot AOC wasn´t the worse thing in the world, ....MAXINE WATERS showed up !!!!!!....demanding SHE had seniority over AOC in all matters, including dibs on James´ "talents". OMG TO BE CONTINUED

  12. PPS .... when I think of a witch, I still immediately picture The Wicked Witch of the West in my mind's eye. That's how great the actress played that role. She's never been touched on that front.
