  1. #128 is now safely home in York,PA!!
  2. Brought a tear to my eye and goose bumps all over! Beautiful work, Bernie! BRAVO!!
  3. Never say, "Never"!!!
  4. We have Dr. Sugar the dentist, Dr. Docktor, an MD and Dr. York who all practice in York, PA. Because I work for the post office, I see the most unusual names. The ones I liked best were Buffy Boots and Candy Cotton. Almost forgot Anne Amal and Bethany Beach. My favorite street has to be Sillyman St. Yes, it actually exists. Then there are the unusual last names such as Peed, Belch, Boose, God, Hooker, etc. and some that would probably get censored. Just can't imagine going through life with those last names! There are also many ordinary people who are given famous names, such as Courtney Love. We see them all the time! My cat's name is Chloe. Since I couldn't have kids(people) of my own, I started naming my pets names I would have given actual children. Today my pets truly are my children. I have always liked the name Cooper for a boy, but the kids on the playground would have had a field day with "Pooper Cooper"!!
  5. I like diet sodas that don't taste like diet. My favorites currently are Sprite Zero (aka Diet Sprite), Diet Sierra Mist and Diet Dr. Pepper. Just wondering if Eric calls soft drinks "pop" like my realitves do in Akron, OH?! What does everybody else call soft drinks in their hometown? In York, PA we say "soda". We call those long coldcut sandwiches, "subs". Other areas call them hoagies, grinders, heros, etc. But basically we are all talking about the same thing! When I vacationed on the Jersey shore a few years ago in Springlake, we ate at a restaurant in a bar and they had a menu item listed as a "bar pie". Little did we know, they were talking about pizza!!
  6. I always enjoyed watching "Press Your Luck". I think you can still find re-runs airing on GSN (Game Show Network).
  7. "Peppermint Twist" by Joey Dee and the Starlighters, on 1/25/62. I believe this song was featured in the movie American Graffiti, which I believe took place in 1962.
  8. It's funny that you mentioned Rogers and Hammerstein's made for TV production of Cinderella. Always my favorite as a little girl in the mid 60's, I just rented it from Netflix and had a wonderful afternoon reliving the memories and enjoying the beautful music and lyrics. Today's kids would probably find the production dated and slow moving (no amimation), but to me it warmed my heart just as it did those 30 some years ago. I could still sing along with all of the songs, I guess your memory does remember everything! I believe this originally aired in prime time and ran for 2 hrs. Can you imagine this in today's prime time line-up?
  9. As I was driving home from work last night around 1 AM a public service commercial came on the radio. It was about lung cancer and the fact that 60% of those who are diagnosed have never smoked or quit many years ago. I thought of Dana Reeve and wondered how she was doing in her struggle with the disease. I was totally shocked to read the headlines this morning and learn that she has passed. How ironic that she was in my thoughts last night. It just gave me chills. My heart breaks for their son.
  10. William Cowsill, lead singer of the Cowsill family has died. He was 58. His death was attributed to emphysema.
  11. Eric in concert??!! One can only hope!! and Dream!!
  12. I'm having fun bidding! Some items are going quite high already! Good luck everyone!
  13. Uh oh, now I feel bad for using a nickname, instead of my real one! Not trying to be anyone other than myself. Just thought another Julie on the board might be a bit confusing since there are already 2 Julias and 2 other Julies.
