Gosh! Just watching this video makes my head hurt… I get the feeling that these dancers woke up with a major headache the day after they filmed this? Yikes!!!!!!!! Can you imagine going to a wedding reception and dancing to one song like this?

If you didn’t catch the PBS series on the Pioneers of Television, they are starting to re-run it this week on Tuesdays at 6 pm CST.  It starts with the Sci-fi genre then Westerns, Crime dramas and local kids tv. Excellent walk down memory lane!

* Linda in North Carolina:

Thanks so much for the big print. I read the whole issue every time and learn something new every time! Thank you for being who you are and for sharing what you know.

* Pat A in Pennsylvania:

Great issue, Blaine. I especially loved the Valentine steps and the stuff on Gratitude, but the Rescued Human part was the best! Thanks!

* Karen in New New Jersey:

Glad you enjoyed Katie Up and Down the Hall. 

 As you know we are big cocker spaniel fans and our Vanessa was actually Katie’s “aunt”…her littermate being Katie’s mom. ..Sweet Sue.  It was great to see the photos in the actual book and see so much of our former pet…especailly Katie eating from all of the dishes on the table.  The breeder,  Betty Campbell was recently a winner in the cocker spaniel group at the Westmnster Dog Show in NYC.

* Scott in Pennsylvania [on mention of Murry Raphel, my marketing guru]:

Their GORDONS ALLEY, outdoor shopping district helped revitilize the AC downtown in they days before casinos.Murray Raphel used to run GORDONS , a clothier in Atlantic City.

* Ken in New York:

Was that one of the jokes [the website allowing folks to test the impact on budget cuts in North Carolina] you were referring to when you mentioned the readers’ popularity choice who participated in your survey?

MY RESPONSE:

No. Do try this one. You’ll find it very enlightening.

* Deb in New Jersey with her take on the above website:

The first time I tried it, I didn’t reduce the budget enough.  I kept imagining how I’d feel if it were my job that was cut!  Then I took it again, being a little more cutthroat — and this time I balanced the budget.  But when I looked at the bottom and saw how many jobs I cut (without realizing), I decided that I wasn’t any good at this and gave up.  Yes, it’s difficult. I definitely wouldn’t want to cut social services or health care that indigent people depend on.  But there are other ways to balance a budget that weren’t given as choices.  How about increasing taxes on corporations?  Or increasing taxes on those with very high incomes and material holdings?  Sure, it wouldn’t be popular with corporate CEOs, but at least the fewest number of people (and those who have a lot anyway) would be affected.
