July is gone and so is another group of celebrities. Hopefully they are all buried somewhere OTHER than the Chicago area since it has been the wettest month ever in the area. Don’t anyone build a swimming pool or you will have dead celebs popping up like in Poltergeist. It has also been one of the hottest Julys ever so I am doubly glad most celebs don’t live around here. Let’s get to it shall we?

Fred Scialla – 56 – Actor and Danny DeVito stand-in – July 7

Until next time, remember … I am running out of battery so I don’t have time to think of a clever quote. Good night everybody!


A Few Quick Things

Posted in Nonsense with tags , , , , , , on July 12, 2011 by Bob

A pretty bad storm rolled through here yesterday morning. A lot of people still don’t have power and may not have power until Saturday. Fortunately, we were lucky enough to not lose power. Maybe if we did, I would be better prepared for this weekend camping.

Betty Ford died and I missed it. Today, I had to read, HOURS after it was posted on Facebook, that Sherwood Schwartz died. He crated Gilligan’s Island, who incidentally, also did not have power for the entire time they were on the island.

They didn’t have power or air conditioning on Gilligan’s island. However, if you look back on it, air conditioning really wasn’t in every home as standard until maybe starting in the 60s – 70s.

Young people today don’t know anything about life back then. They have always had AC. They have also always had large TV screens. I don’t think they realize that the tablets that are promoting ways to watch tv on the go, are just fancy replacements for the 5 inch portable tvs that I had in high school.

Speaking of small tvs, I think of cell phones and how when they started they were huge, then they got smaller and smaller, and now they are going to be so big again that you won’t want to make a phone call on them.

Phones won’t need to be small though because no one is going to call anyone anymore. This is sad because I am going to want to call someone, anyone to come and rescue me from camping. It is going to be in the 90s, and I won’t have any AC.
