How would you like your employer to hand over the business to his employees to run and own the business.? WOW! What a great boss.

This is the one of the best presentations of the sixties that I have ever seen online.

It is very well done .

Just click on the link and sit back and enjoy the memories.

Great photos and facts.

If you are not quite old enough to have been there, feel free to pass it on to someone who is.


This is soooo precious it will touch your heart.
The dad did a fabulous job filming this short movie.

Pat in California:

Wow, you have fun!! FYI: I did my longevity calculator — it is 102!! [which, given my living parents’ ages of 90 and 91 respectively, could entirely be true…]


Donna in New Jersey:

I didn’t realize “Men” was cancelled!!! I just watched the season finale (I DVR it) & loved the way they wrapped up a couple story lines. This was a good show!! I’m disappointed that this season of TNT’s other hit, The Closer, is coming to an end. I believe they are spinning this one off to “Major Crimes” for next season with some of the same characters. Another new favorite this summer is Memphis Beat……check it out.


Walter in Pennsylvania:

Didn’t know that “Men of a Certain Age” was cancelled. Taped it every week and related to the characters always. Who do we write to support or is it to late?

RESPONSE (to Walter, Donna and others, too):

I think it is too late, but no harm in writing. I did, sending an email to: I’ll also write TV GUIDE, seeing it it can help get support for the program. The address there is:

In the meantime, click this link for an insight column on the program:


David in New York:

O.K., here’s a weird one. My book is the basis for today’s New York Times Acrostic Puzzle.


Marilyn in New Jersey:

I’ve been a follower of yours for many years and always enjoy your missive. I love hearing about your family, the good, the bad, and the sad. I enjoy “most” of your jokes (), reviews, computer tips and the “hamish” way you write your Newsletter. I like reading about people’s accomplishments and admire the fact that you freely compliment those who deserve it.

I’d like to tell you something about my younger daughter, Beth, who was recently hired by a start up company, Eyefly is a subsidiary of, an online retailer dealing with high end merchandise at reduced prices. Eyefly, as I’m sure you’ve already guessed, sells prescription eyeglasses for $99/pair. They have a really nice selection of high-style frames for much less money than you’d normally pay for your eyeglasses.

Beth is the General Manager of the company. We’re very proud of her accomplishment in having gotten this position and for getting it off the ground. I’d like you to take a look at the site and if you think your readers would be interested, maybe put it in the Newsletter.

Thanks . . . and I hope you like it!!

Wonderful as usual [BLAINESWORLD #774] . . . however, the jokes really got to me…here I sit laughing…and I haven’t finished my coffee…BTW: it is hard for me to even mumble before coffee let alone laugh and type….those were great!


Richard in North Carolina:

Thanks for your mention of our concert on the 5th in BLAINESWORLD! Some other excellent info as well… Hairspray & SART info, the list of two types of people and the question “which one are you,” and info about Dillard’s Clearance Center.

Ingrid in Pennsylvania:

You had asked for a blurb for the newsletter about the rescue I am associated with. Almost Home Dog Rescue located in Doylestown seeks volunteers to foster their dogs mainly coming from down south from overcrowded shelters. They have meet n’ greets three times a month at local pet stores for people to come and visit and meet the dogs and hope that a dog will find a forever home.
Their link is:

I also recently offered to volunteer my time with a collie rescue. They are located out of Ambler and I am associated with people in our neighborhood who run the rescue. They are the Collie Rescue of Southeastern PA, Inc. This rescue also looks for foster homes until a permanent home can be found.

Since Almost Home does out of state transport, all dogs are spayed or neutered prior to transport, given the mandatory vaccinations, and receive a health certificate which is required to cross state lines. If any of your readers have any questions in general or about rescue work, they can contact me. We rescued our first wonderful companion 11 years ago.

I appreciate your making everyone aware of these two rescues and bringing this to the attention of people raises awareness overall of how many animals are looking for loving homes.

PS. As a side note – Our foster has taken our hearts and has a wonderful personality considering her start in life that we have agreed as a family to adopt her. We are waiting word from the rescue to make it official. One less dog waiting for a home.
