Re: The Muppet Show

I did it! Too, too funny.
Thanks for sharing all your great memories of the Muppet Show.
I didn't get all the references when I was kid, either, just like I didn't get all the references in The Carol Burnett Show and all those old variety shows. I just knew they were funny!

Was Dean Stockwell the most beautiful child ever?
What a face.

The Muppet Show

I forced the kids to watch The Muppet Show season 1 this weekend. I hadn't seen it in so long, and forgot how many wonderful stars appeared. Does anyone remember Kermit singing Groucho's Lydian, The Tatooed Lady while a tatooed pig danced around him? I though my four year niece was going to split he...

Re: WHAT FILMS HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

I watched My One and Only , 2009 with Rene Zelwegger and Kevin Bacon. The story line was loosely based on George Hamilton's life and how he and his mother ended up in Hollywood. It was more of a character/period piece. The jazz score and 50's clothes and street scenes created the atmosphere to tell ...

Re: 'Round the World Weather Report

No, the 5" was snow...on top of the existing skating rink. You can see patches of our road today, so there must be some meltdown. I'm staying in!

Re: WHAT SILENTS & PRE-CODES HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

I watched 3 Girls About Town with Joan Blondell. I think I'd seen this before, but am glad to now own it as I'll be watching it over and over. Is there anything funnier than trying to hide a dead body? What can I say, I'm easily amused. This is one of Eric Blore's best and I don't know why I couldn'...

Re: The whiny thread

Alison, What can you let go of that will help you? I don't know how dedicated of a housekeeper you are, but I recommend taking your contacts out. If you can't see it, you won't care. Is there any way you could hire an eensy bit of help? A teenager or anything? I appreciate your friendship here so mu...

Re: 'Round the World Weather Report

Is everyone here and accounted for? Internet has been sporadic. We were right on the ice line; a couple of hours north of here they got 2 feet of snow and we got several inches of ice. Most of the area was without power. Most for 8 - 12 hours; some for up to 48 hours. Amazingly, we were one of the f...

Re: 'Round the World Weather Report

The sleet started yesterday and has continued off and on all day today. I just got internet back and thought I'd jump on to wish all my friends here at SSO the best in this weather. Lots of people all around us are without power including the entire town where I work and also into Indiana. Unbelieva...

Thinking of each of you and hoping you stay safe and warm. Nancy, I can't believe your pipes burst. THAT proves it, doesn't it. It's a super-winter. After all, it's not like we not used to getting cold at all. But compared to Klon's def of cold...brrrr. At least we are hovering near freezing this we...

Re: Hats in Movies

Loved all those pictures, Wendy and PT, the highlight of my night.
Thanks for the vote of confidence, Klondike, I may try out a veil at the library tomorrow. Can't you picture it?
