    The good ones from my era are leaving – my age is showing. PP&M were always a delight when PBS did their pledge drive. Henry was great on Boston Legal. They’ll be missed.

  2. Morning peeps,
    Nothing like waking up and finding one of the dogs has been sick overnight, yuck!

    Yes Bev, our ages are showing and it sucks!

    I agree with both of you, Bev and Brian. It definitely sucks!

    This doesn’t surprise me:

    Teen birth rates highest in most religious states

  6. Nanny I suspect so called religious people aren’t exactly having healthy frank conversations with their children regarding sex either.

    Healthcare industry loves Baucus’ bill. Just more proof that it isn’t good for the people.

    The Weavers were probably the first folk group to bring folk music into the mainstream, but PP&M were the first to really unleash it on the popular masses. Without them laying the foundation for this sort of popular adoption, it makes one wonder if all those who proceeded them would have been so successful. And that is a very, very long list.

    As to this getting old thing, frequently friends kids who are in their teens or twenties are showing me what’s on their iPods: Beatles, Stones, the Who, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, the Grateful Dead, etc.

    They all tell me how lucky I was to be growing up when these bands were in their heyday. I can only smile at them and say: “yup.”

    It’s official — the Respect for Marriage Act has been introduced and now it’s time to repeal the discriminatory so-called “Defense of Marriage Act.”

  13. dnd you have to learn to read between the lines, what they are saying is they are amazed you’re still alive and able to take care of yourself!

  14. Bird moron is a gross understatement.
