Well, you've read the notes, the notes were both digital and hi-def, and now it is time for you to post until the hi-def cows come home.

The first novelty song that I actually can identify as such and that I bought was a song that came out after the movie Jaws. The song actually "sampled" other songs. Jaws was being interviewed and his answers were the the song samples. I think the song was called Mr. Jaws

I actually woke up a few minutes before my alarm clock went off, so that was a good sign. But then I checked the current weather forecast for today, and that was not a good sign. The main reason I had planned to head to Philly today was because today was supposed to be "the best day of the week", but now they're calling for rain both here in NYC and Philly. Actually, it's already drizzled a little bit here in my 'hood, and NYC is under a flood watch until this evening. So... No scrapple for me this morning in the Reading Terminal Market. :(

We have some installation also (actually more like rip-up) here at the office. The carpet arrived on Tuesday. It says on the box that it has to sit in the room where it will be installed for 48 hours. Today the carpet men arrived and are ripping up the old dirty carpet in preparation to installing the new industrial strength carpet squares. They have gone down to the bare floor. I don't know if they will have to sand the wood in prep for putting on adhesive. If so, it will be a noisy day. There has been no indication that I am about to be moved but I would think, if there is sanding being done it would be smart to move the employees in the general vicinity. I'm just sayin'

Good morning, all! I had a horrible night of poor sleep, but I reckon that means perhaps a good one tonight. I'm really sick of all this crap. My first jaunt this morning is to Pearl Paint on Canal Street to exchange some tape and then a meeting at Toyland. After that, it's back here for more work and some phone calls on THE MOST HAPPY FELLA.

My mother loved novelty songs, so we learned them direct from World War 2. The ones she sang the most were "Mairzy Doats" and the one about the thee 'iddle fiddies who swam and swam all over the dam.  From the 50s, I remember the big Sheb Wooley ones: "Chipmunk sng," "Witch Doctor" and "Purple People Eater," but the one I really loved was the "Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini."

I recall a LP recording that came out when I was either in high school or college, entitled SMASH FLOPS.

It contained such delightful tunes as:

"Bon Voyage, Titanic!"
"Congratulations Tom Dewey!"
And once that went something like: "We're waiting for you to really come through and defeat the Sioux, General Custer".

Classics, all.

Sorry about your night, DR Elmore. Believe me, I can empathize.

I had one of the most horrific nights of my life. Took me two hours to find somewhere in the house and a position to get in where I could sleep. Three hours later, sleep was finished with blinding pain, and I have just been waiting this long, long morning through so I could get to the doctor and hopefully get some answers.

Send up a little prayer at 10:40 this morning that something else can be done. What we've done so far hasn't worked.

To try to keep my mind off the throbbing in my arm, I've been watching my next review project - NCIS, Season 6. Having seen all the episodes during the regular season, I could afford to get up and walk around whenever I felt stiffness and aching that wouldn't allow me to remain seated.
Title: Re: THE INSTILLATION OF THE DIGITAL HI-DEF THINGEE
Post by: Jrand70 on August 13, 2009, 06:53:35 AM
I first heard Witch Doctor and Purple People Eater on the radio - each song had a very distinctive opening so I would listen for them and run to the radio (some Top 40 station) each time one of them came on.

I liked all of the ones already mentioned.....heard and sung most of them.  I also liked All of the Monkeys Aren't in the Zoo and Does Your Chewing Gum Lose It's Flavor on the Bedpost Overnight.

The great thing about novelty songs is that you could hear them once or twice and sing them yourself, they were so catchy.

I got four episodes watched, all that were on disc one. There is a bonus feature on disc one that I didn't watch yet, but I'd have to take notes with it, and I didn't feel like writing, so I stopped there. Hopefully I can pick up with it later this afternoon.

Just a reminder to you, bk, about HD channels.

I don't know how they work on dish, but on digital cable, we have both the standard definition channels and the corresponding high definition channels located in a completely different area of the digital numbering system.

e.g. local CBS affiliate is channel 2 on the cable listings. The high definition version of CBS is channel 225.

I have had friends who were tuned to regular channels and disappointed HD didn't look better. They had no idea HD was on another part of the numbered tier.

This also goes for cable channels like TNT, USA, or FX. Completely separate listings in different areas of the channel numbered tiers.

My favorite growing up was "They're Coming To Take Me Away, Ha! Ha!" by Napoleon XIV.  It was the kind of song that was appropriate to start singing in a number of situations and everyone could join in.  It also seemed to get a great deal of radio play in two to three year cycles.

Thursday morning greetings!  I slept late today and my agenda includes visiting my mother.

TOD - my father used to sing:

While the organ peeled potatoes,
Lard was rendered by the choir.
While the sexton rang the dish rag,
Someone set the church on fire.

“Holy Smoke,” the preacher shouted,
And in the rush he lost his hair.
Now his head resembles heaven,
For there is no parting there.

I was stunned to hear Garrison Keillor sing it during a "silly songs" segment on A Prairie Home Companion.

Post by: Ron Pulliam on August 13, 2009, 08:05:41 AM
Novelty favorites include just about any top 10 hit by Ray Stevens, including "Gitarzan" and "Little Sheba."  There was also "Alley Oop" sung by the Hollywood Argyles (and later the Beach Boys and Sha Na Na)...lots of fun!  "Spiders and Snakes" by Jim Stafford is also a fun song.

And Brian Hyland's version of "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie (Yellow Polka Dot Bikini)" was a lot of fun, along with Sheb Wooley's version of "Purple People Eater".

Good Morning, once again!

I went ahead and walked down the street to "Jumbo Hamburger" (Since 1968), sat down at the counter and had one of my favorite breakfasts: corned beef hash, two eggs over easy, home fries and toast.

I've always wondered if some sort of study has been done on the minds of line-cooks - whether in a greasy-spoon diner, or even some high-end restaurants.  I always marvel at how they can keep track of all the orders being called out to them without writing anything down.

In any case, it was a good, cheap breakfast, and I also got a chance to read the New York Times not on the web.

Another novelty song I'm fond of I learned from a Brit during my NATO tour in Naples, Italy, back in the 1970s:

"Lloyd George Knew My Father", sung to the tune of "Onward, Christian Soldiers!"

"Lloyd George knew my Father,
Father knew Lloyd George,
Lloyd George knew my father,
Father knew Lloyd George!"

"Lloyd George knew my Father,
Father knew Lloyd George,
Lloyd George knew my father,
Father knew Lloyd George!"

"Lloyd George knew my Father,
Father knew Lloyd George,
Lloyd George knew my father,
Father knew Lloyd George!"


I believe it might more appropriately be called "a pub song."

Sorry to add to the "litany of woe" a certain DR complained about, but I could use some major vibage--I have had a tender knee for months, which I just racked up to age and the fact that I walk so many miles for exercise each day.  Well, something major happened last night.  Suddenly I literally could not bend my right knee without an amazingly sharp and painful twinge shooting down the right side of my calf.  I got no sleep last night and am off to an emergency appointment with my clinic.  This could not have happened at a worse time.

My favorites would be MONSTER MASH, THE NAME GAME, and SURFIN BIRD.

I spoke to my guy who installed my stuff - he said HDMI is the way, but he said if I'm worried about them doing it, to just have them do what he did, and then he'll come and do the HDMI stuff in a day or two - I may go that route.

TOD"  My grandmother used to sing, "Three Little Fishes" to us when I was little.  My great aunt would sing MacNamarra's Band and do a little jig for us.
Growing up at the same time as many of you, I was bombarded with "Witch Doctor" "Me-O and Cleo"  "Itsy Witsy Teeny Weeny Polka Dot Bikini."

"Spiders and Snakes" still gives me a headache; it was popular on the jukebox at a pizza place where I worked as a teenager, and I got tired of hearing it 30 times a day.

I actually rode my bike for the first time in about 3 weeks. Between my lower back and being sick i just did not have the energy.

The temps this week are very hot and sunny and humid. But the ride was great!

My right lower back is still not healed. But it's fine most of the time (except when i try to lift something). So i just put the bike pack in my basket instead of resting on my back. And my back did not hurt at all during the ride!

I saw 2 interesting movies in the past 2 days from the library.

I did not really expect to love either But i ended up really liking them both.

The first is called CROSSING OVER with harrison ford and ashley judd. It's a drama that focuses on many different people And it's about immigration issues in LA. It was quite enjoyable.

The second, I really did not know whether it would be my cup of tea was PAUL BLART MALL COP starring kevin james and jayma mays (charlie from Ugly Betty). Sometimes with comedies i am not sure whether i will find them funny. But this was also a romantic comedy. And i liked it so much more than i thought i would. I"m not sure if others would find this funny. But i found kevin james' character sort of endearing. And i really like jayma mays, who i did not even know was in it.

Post by: Jennifer on August 13, 2009, 10:30:59 AM
I also (from the library) got PRISON BREAK THE FINAL BREAK. What an interesting idea (to make a straight to dvd movie explaining how the ending of the series happened).

SPOILERS

I really liked it. We got to see so many of our favorite characters. And it sort of went back to the basics by having michael try to break sarah out of jail.

There were certain things that were obvious if you've watched the show (like who would not be in that parachute). But there were also some really great things.

I do think that anyone could watch this (even without having watched the show). The only thing is they didn't really go into too much detail about who everyone was and their backstories. So i'm not sure people who haven't watched the show would really understand how everyone fits together or what sarah and michael mean to each other.

Sorry to add to the "litany of woe" a certain DR complained about, but I could use some major vibage--I have had a tender knee for months, which I just racked up to age and the fact that I walk so many miles for exercise each day.  Well, something major happened last night.  Suddenly I literally could not bend my right knee without an amazingly sharp and painful twinge shooting down the right side of my calf.  I got no sleep last night and am off to an emergency appointment with my clinic.  This could not have happened at a worse time.

ask for an MRI; I'm convinced back and spine problems are the source of all leg and shoulder ailments.

This is today's rant. I got down to Pearl Paint at 308 Canal Street by taking the No 1 subway to 42nd Street and transferring to the N Train, which let me off at Canal about two blocks from Pearl Paint. Their employees are so polite and friendly and helpful, I was sure I'd gone into another era, time warp, whatever. I got a credit for my wrong order, took an elevator to the fifth floor and bought the correct tape I use for taping orchestra parts.

The problem, after leaving Pearl, was the easiest way to get to 27th Street and Sixth Avenue, so I decided to walk west on Canal to Sixth and pick up a bus.  The walk was a little longer than I thought, and by the time I got to Sixth, my leg was beginning to ache.  However, I didn't know where the Sixth Avenue buses stopped so I had to walk north on Sixth until I got to a bus stop. I finally came upon one just below Spring Street, and there I waited, standing on my bad leg because there was no bench or official sheltered bus stop with several chairs.  The schedule, which is all lies since the MTA board has screwed up the Manhattan transportation, said the No 6 bus came at 11:08, 11:18, 11:33, and 11:48. I arrived around 11:20 so I figured with luck I'd catch one shortly. So, I stood for 20 minutes on my bad leg until at 11:41 a bus showed up. I suspect the MTA asses have cut the buses to one every 30 minutes, but I also think their forcing an old coot to stand uncomfortably for 20 minutes with no ability to sit is both rude and inhumane. I wish the MTA board members all a violent and grisly death ASAP.

Waited for 90 minutes at the MRI place (45 of which I was the only--and I mean only--patient there), and never got called.  So I told them I was done waiting and they could reschedule me.  The Percoset has at least taken the edge off the pain, which is all I'm really concerned about.  The doctor said usually with something like this it's just PT that helps anyway, so a few days to wait for the MRI shouldn't make any difference.

It is a digital channel but is not high def so your general set-up for your regular channels will carry over for it, too, Yes, it should pillarbox most of the movies it shows and windowbox the widescreen ones.

Depending on your television, it's sometimes easier to select "Native" on your DirecTV box, that will automatically adjust to whatever AR the station is broadcasting in.  Everything on DirectTV is digital, that has nothing to do with the AR of the broadcast, simply the mode of its delivery.  You will notice that TNT for example does regularly stretch programming.

My mother loved novelty songs, so we learned them direct from World War 2. The ones she sang the most were "Mairzy Doats" and the one about the thee 'iddle fiddies who swam and swam all over the dam.  From the 50s, I remember the big Sheb Wooley ones: "Chipmunk sng," "Witch Doctor" and "Purple People Eater," but the one I really loved was the "Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini."

Does anyone remember a commercial from a couple of years ago (I forget what for...some weight-loss product, I think...and it might've just been regional), where they used the "Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" song?  However, they rerecorded the song with these lyrics:

"She wore an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini
That she wore for the first time today."

Seriously!  That's what they sang!  It makes absolutely no grammatical sense! 

The correct lyrics are, "It was an itsy bitsy...bikini that she wore..."

DR MattH, I had 2 herniated discs in my neck pressing on my spinal cord in 1999. By the time my HMO sent me for the MRI in October, I had seen every specialist they could recommend over a period of two months while I stumbled and became more incapacitated till I could hardly walk. When I would swallow food, the esophagus expanded, the disc pressed on my spinal cords and my leg twitched. Meanwhile, I couldn't hold a pencil, make a fist, or move without great difficulty. My surgery was Dec. 7, followed by six weeks of physical therapy, and I've been doing okay, although I suspect some of my current problems are from more herniated discs.

I am so happy you've finally been diagnosed.

The plumber is here, he has been for awhile. I knew there would be problems when I saw how close the waste pipe is to the bottom of the sink.  So he's putting in a new waste pipe, adding a vent I didn't have and got a "special basket"  lol.  I know that means more expensive.  I have no idea what this is going to cost me, but I've had drain problems a number of times over the past year or two, so if this fixes that, it will be worth it.

To make room for the plumber to cut the waste pipe (which was amazingly clean)  I had to move all the boxes out of the storeroom and put them somewhere else.  The good news is, I was planning to organize this room as soon as I finish the kitchen project so I have somewhere to neatly put some of the clutter around here.  Now I've got a good start.

Thanks for the good wishes, folks. I am slightly encouraged after seeing the doctor today. Oh, the diagnosis was upsetting, but if it means some relief, I don't care even if I end up being one of the 10% who need an operation to correct the problem.

I have (he thinks) a herniated disc in my neck. And MRI will reveal much, and I'm waiting for the call to schedule that to be done.

Meanwhile, I've started on steroids for the pain.

DR MattH, I had 2 herniated discs in my neck pressing on my spinal cord in 1999. By the time my HMO sent me for the MRI in October, I had seen every specialist they could recommend over a period of two months while I stumbled and became more incapacitated till I could hardly walk. When I would swallow food, the esophagus expanded, the disc pressed on my spinal cords and my leg twitched. Meanwhile, I couldn't hold a pencil, make a fist, or move without great difficulty. My surgery was Dec. 7, followed by six weeks of physical therapy, and I've been doing okay, although I suspect some of my current problems are from more herniated discs.

I am so happy you've finally been diagnosed.

Thank you, DR Elmore. I really hope I won't have to go the operation route, but honestly anything is preferable to what I've been enduring. Yes, I also have Vicodin along with the steroids.

And thanks to others like DRs George, FJL, and Arnold who sent good wishes. Much appreciated.

It is a digital channel but is not high def so your general set-up for your regular channels will carry over for it, too, Yes, it should pillarbox most of the movies it shows and windowbox the widescreen ones.

But it doesn't do it right now - I have to select pillarbox.  Is there some way to have it "know"?  As I said, on my regular channels, the local ones, it does it automatically - full screen for HD and pillarboxed for non-HD, but when I then go to TCM it's stretched.

Hopefully you guys will have better MRI machines than what i had.

I know there are the tunnel ones. And the ones with the sides open. The tunnel ones make you feel like you're in a coffin. And for someone who is claustrophobic it can be awful.

But to me the worst part (and the part i was not expecting) was the excrutiating noise. It was almost unbearable (especially considering that i was being treated for a migraine!). Hopefully these machines have gotten better.

Sorry to add to the "litany of woe" a certain DR complained about, but I could use some major vibage--I have had a tender knee for months, which I just racked up to age and the fact that I walk so many miles for exercise each day.  Well, something major happened last night.  Suddenly I literally could not bend my right knee without an amazingly sharp and painful twinge shooting down the right side of my calf.  I got no sleep last night and am off to an emergency appointment with my clinic.  This could not have happened at a worse time.

I set my DVR on a high-definition channel and then select "Full" for the image (on my remote).  This gives me the proper anamorphic image.  After that, channels that are not high def revert to pillar (which is the correct ratio for older shows and movies) or letterboxed.  I often select "Zoom" to watch those and then change back after the movie ends.

I wish mine "knew" automatically what to do with each occurrence -- or could be programmed to know -- but I don't "know" of a way to make it "know" how.

The temps this week are very hot and sunny and humid. But the ride was great!

My right lower back is still not healed. But it's fine most of the time (except when i try to lift something). So i just put the bike pack in my basket instead of resting on my back. And my back did not hurt at all during the ride!

Good Evening!

So... Over the course of the past couple of hours...

-I had lunch with a concert pianist.
-And then was treated to an impromptu performance by said concert pianist.
-Took a nice walk around the Upper West Side.
-Enjoyed a Frozen "Wicked" (spicy) Hot Chocolate at Jacques Torres (http://www.jacquestorres.com/).
-Walked into the middle of photo-shoot and press event for AnnaLynne McCord (http://www.annalynne-mccord.com/) at the Time-Warner Center. I had no idea who she was/is, but it was interesting to note that more paparazzi were in attendance than fans.
-Stopped back into Casellula (http://casellula.com/index.html) to say, "Hi," to Tia, their fromager. She had been away for a couple of days at the American Cheese Society Conference. Wine (a quite refreshing grüner veltliner), cheeses (smoked ricotta and a edam-style sheep's milk cheese), pickled purple okra and garlic scapes, roasted bone marrow, goat's milk dulce de leche, chocolate truffles... YUM!
-And it turned out that the two gentlemen sitting next to me at the bar were two major figures in NYC's food scene: one a cheese "shaman" (I came up with that term for him - he's going to add it to his business cards), and the other one is a well-known and well-respected food writer who's currently with "Gourmet" magazine.  Needless to say, the conversation was amazing!!!

So... I guess I don't feel so bad about not making it to Philadelphia today after all.  ;)

My parents were looking to buy their first house when I was almost 9 years old.  When they walked down the basement steps of one my dad said, "SOLD!" because of the player piano.  We lived in that house until I graduated from high school.

One of the first mysteries they solved after we moved in was how the piano got down there, given the configuration of the stairway.  Neighbors told my dad that the previous owners had taken the piano apart in the driveway, taken the pieces downstairs, and reassembled the piano at the bottom of the steps.

We had great fun with the piano rolls and my dad played for relaxation.  He'd never had training, but played the way Scott Houston, the Piano Guy, teaches on PBS.  They left the piano behind when we moved to the Detroit 'burbs and, the last we heard, subsequent owners hacked it up for firewood  :'(

DR Jennifer headsets likely worked as well as ear plugs.  Ouch, to do that with a migraine. 

I have always been given, without asking, ear plugs.  Some were better than others.  I suggest testing them a bit first or asking for two sets of ear plugs or additional cotton or something.  I also take a very mild tranquilizer before doing an MRI.  Of course that requires someone drive you.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.  However, the "announcement" was funny...

I tried "native" on the DVR but it didn't fix the TCM stretch.  I'm pack to pillarbox as a setting and that seems to work.  My HD channels are widescreen, as they should be, and everything else is pillarboxed.

DR Jennifer headsets likely worked as well as ear plugs.  Ouch, to do that with a migraine. 

I have always been given, without asking, ear plugs.  Some were better than others.  I suggest testing them a bit first or asking for two sets of ear plugs or additional cotton or something.  I also take a very mild tranquilizer before doing an MRI.  Of course that requires someone drive you. 



I think i said it wrong. There was nothing to block out the noise. I was thinking that the noise came from a headset. But maybe not. There was no offer of anything to block out the noise.

I had the coffin MRI with it closed on both sides. That in itself was really bad for me. I wasn't sure i could do it. But i kept my eyes closed and counted.

I find it hard to believe that there is no way they can do it without the noise. But i guess minus the migraine and with earplugs maybe it could be okay.

So, I'm gathering that via HDMI any digital station automatically adjusts for the ratio that's correct.  And I gather that TCM isn't digital and therefore stretches the picture unless you specifically select pillarbox.  Does that sound right, oh experts?

It is a digital channel but is not high def so your general set-up for your regular channels will carry over for it, too, Yes, it should pillarbox most of the movies it shows and windowbox the widescreen ones.

But it doesn't do it right now - I have to select pillarbox.  Is there some way to have it "know"?  As I said, on my regular channels, the local ones, it does it automatically - full screen for HD and pillarboxed for non-HD, but when I then go to TCM it's stretched.

My digital cable box has a "settings" section that is pretty foolproof. But all of these services are different from one another.

Oy! is right. I've never had an MRI, and I've received no phone call, and since it's after 5, I guess they won't call until tomorrow at the earliest. Darn! I want to get this over with as soon as possible.

DR Matt H, when you get to the MRI, tell them you need earplugs and they should give you a pair. Trust me, you should use them!

Thanks for the tip! I have seen them on medical shows, of course, but nothing is like being there yourself!

I remember it George.  That always bugged me too.  Some friends of my parents had the piano player roll of itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini, so we used to play and sing it when we went over there.

I loved our player piano and was kind of bummed when my mom sold it.  Has anyone else had one?

We have a modern version, it plays discs.

Of the two other bonus features I watched tonight, one was Pauley Perette recording a song ("Fear") for the soundtrack of an episode. Not very good.

The other had the producers and cast talking about the decision to split up the team at the start of the season and the on-going story arc about finding a mole within NCIS. All pretty basic stuff but I enjoyed hearing their motivations. And it did seem to bring back the audience. NCIS had its highest ratings ever this season, its sixth on the air. That's VERY rare in today's TV world to be able to build an audience after so many years on the air.

Thanks for the good wishes, folks. I am slightly encouraged after seeing the doctor today. Oh, the diagnosis was upsetting, but if it means some relief, I don't care even if I end up being one of the 10% who need an operation to correct the problem.

I have (he thinks) a herniated disc in my neck. And MRI will reveal much, and I'm waiting for the call to schedule that to be done.

Meanwhile, I've started on steroids for the pain.

Oy.  Maybe we should re-acronym this site MRI.

On the way to the hospital this afternoon I picked up a library copy of the OBC recording of Next to Normal.  Even though the catalog record says "Synopsis and Lyrics in Container," I find no booklet in the box.  Guess I'll have to call the library tomorrow and see if they can track it down.  At least, they need to flag my record so I don't get blamed for losing it.

We also stopped at a Laz-E-Boy furniture store and I've pretty much been talked out of a chair-and-a-half.  Doug, the salesman, said they're pretty useless and uncomfortable unless you have a small child or animal to share it with an adult.  Having neither, we're exploring other options.

A few years back, Steve bought a double La-Z-Boy recliner.  What a great chair. -And he also bought one of those "lift-top" coffee tables.  It was the perfect set-up for whenever we wanted to eat dinner in the living room while watching TV.

Ginny, the EXACT same thing happened to me with our library's copies.  I checked it out and there was no booklet, at all.  I had ordered my own copy (it hadn't arrived yet) and what happened was that the booklet was too thick to fit into the regular CD cases (our library repackages the "digipak" cardboard cases) so they just cut them out and threw them away.  The cataloguer put that note in the bib record, but the convertors didn't pay attention and take that note out.  I spoke to their supervisor and she said that they really should have put the disc with the complete original packaging into a bigger case so that it all could be saved.

Me, too.  Catalogers and book prep staff rarely think of the public service implications of their actions.  In the first library where I worked professionally, all the call number labels had to be exactly one-inch from the bottom of the spine.  As a reference librarian, I found that immensely inconvenient when, to meet that requirement, they'd covered up the guide letters on encyclopedia volumes.  Eventually, I convinced the powers-that-be to be more user- friendly.

There are some adult moments in the show, but it's all done with a great sense of humor and no malice.  If she's seen an R-Rated movie, she - and you - should be fine.

I think.

Look at that, look at that
He's just as proud as he can be
Of his anatomy
He goin' give us a peek

Oh, yes, they call him the Streak
Look at that, look at that
He likes to show off his physique
Look at that, look at that
If there's an audience to be found
He'll be streakin' around
Invitin' public critique

(Reporter):
This is your action news reporter once again, and we're here at the gas
station. Pardon me, sir, did you see what happened?

(Witness):
Yeah, I did. I's just in here gettin my car checked, he just appeared
out of the traffic. Come streakin' around the grease rack there, didn't
have nothin' on but a smile. I looked in there, and Ethel was gettin'
her a cold drink. I hollered, "Don't look, Ethel!" But it was too
late. She'd already been mooned. Flashed her right there in front of
the shock absorbers.

DR vixmom - Seriously - See the show! Yes, the puppets - and the humans - do get "adult" at times, but the show also has lots of Heart.  And, frankly, I don't think anything could possibly match the Broadway company - especially Ann Harada since her songs were written for her. Additionally, Jennifer Barnhart is still with the show, and has been with the show since Day 1!

My doctor's office called the office and told them my blood work was fine and I should call to schedule my colonoscopy.   There are several problems with this.  One, I specifically told them not to leave messages at my office. Two, I didn't do any blood work when I went to the doctor, and three I was supposed to do a sonogram of my gallbladder not a colonoscopy.    I decided not to do either and will call if I have any more problems

Maybe you should call them and let them know they mixed up patient files.

I did talk to them. I explained the situation and the only response I got is what I posted.

I took a bit of a nap this evening, so I hope I can get to sleep tonight. I did not intend to nap, but I was watching an old Tom Neal movie where he goes around shirtless a lot. Unfortunately, there was a scene in which he was fully clothed and that is when I dozed off.

HOw could I have neglected Benny Bell's immortal "Shaving Cream?"

I have a sad story to tell you
It may hurt your feelings a bit
Last night as I walked into my bathroom
I stepped in a big pile of ...
Shaving cream, be nice and clean
Shave every day and you'll always look keen

I think I'll break off with my girlfriend
Her antics are queer, I'll admit
Each time I say, "Darling, I love you"
She tells me that I'm full of ...
Shaving cream, be nice and clean
Shave every day and you'll always look keen

Our baby fell out of the window
You'd think that her head would be split
But good luck was with her that morning
She fell in a barrel of ...
Shaving cream, be nice and clean
Shave every day and you'll always look keen

My old lady died in a bathtub
She died from a terrible fit
In order to fulfill her wishes
She was buried in six feet of ...
Shaving cream, be nice and clean
Shave every day and you'll always look keen

When I was in France with the army
One day I looked inside my kit
I thought i would find me a sandwich
But the darn thing was loaded with ...
Shaving cream, be nice and clean
Shave every day and you'll always look keen

And now folks my story is ended
I think it is time I should quit
And if anyone of you feel offended
Push your head in a bucket of ...
Shaving cream, be nice and clean
Shave every day and you'll always look keen
