Oh, that is so sad about Laura/Kasey...one of the last Bewitched cast members and of course she appeared a few times on Perry Mason as well as lots of other TV shows.

That is very sad  :'( and I am very sorry Bruce, I know you really liked her.

She was a swell woman, and she lived until eighty - pretty damn good.  Her performance as Mrs. Haines is one of the all-time great performances in a Hitchcock film.  I will watch Strangers On A Train this weekend in her honor.

Dear Friend BK, I'm so sorry about your friend's death.

The house is quiet tonight.  Mattie, Max and I have watched several LAW & ORDERS, MONK and now PSYCH.  We will soon pass out.

I went down to a plaza outside the Promenade tonight and saw Kelley Hunt and her band. Good blues. I think she's from Kansas City. It was a great night for it.

Just came back from the Colony Hotel where I saw Jeff Harnar perform his 1959 Broadway Songbook show (also available on cd).

Alex Rybeck was a the piano and did the great arrangements. I have been fortunate to get to know Alex these past few years as he has played the piano for several of the performers I have seen live including Jason Graae, Liz Callaway and Faith Prince.

Could your life BE any more structured?

Exactly as it has to be for me to get anything accomplished. Otherwise, I would go to sleep every night and not accomplished anything constructive EVER.

That is sad. Bewitched has always been one of my favorite shows and now it is
Bernard Fox, Alice Ghostly, Charles Lane (Who played many different clients), Dick Wilson (the bar drunk), the Murphy Twins (Tabitha), the Lawrence Twins (Adam)
Did I miss anyone?

Watched about five MARY TYLER MOORE episodes tonight before the USA season premieres started. Three of my all-time favorite MTM shows were on the first disc of the 4th season -

"The Lars Affair" which introduced Betty White as Sue Ann Nivens who was stealing Cloris leachman's husband out from under her nose.

Cloris won the Emmy that year for her performance in this episode.

"The Lou and Edie Story" in which Mr. and Mrs. Grant separate which of course became permanent.

Writer Triva Silverman won the Emmy that year for writing the best comedy episode of that season. She was also named Series Writer of the Year.

"Lou's First Date" where by a mistake, Lou Grant is "fixed up" with an 80 year old woman for his first date after his wife left him.

All superb episodes.

I also began watching YOLANDA AND THE THIEF. Hadn't seen it in awhile, and after the sticky sweet A DATE WITH JUDY today, I guess I wanted to see an MGM musical with a little more sophistication. Didn't get very far into the movie - perhaps 35 minutes, so will have a good portion of it to watch tomorrow.

I got the idea for watching it from seeing the "Coffee Time" excerpt in THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT III yesterday.

I just read this and excuse me if it has been mentioned.

But it was revealed that actor Benjamin Hendrickson from Another World committed suicide. I am sure his friends and co-stars are wondering if they could have helped him. But he must have been so troubled not to reach out to his friends and family.

MONK had an OK season premiere episode, but as wonderful an actor as Stanley Tucci is, I didn't think the writers got everything out of him that could have been gotten with him in the episode.

Certainly were some good laughs, however.

Vinnie came over, but unfortunately we couldn't do the clone because we have to get the serial number from the backup program company and they won't be back until Monday.  Stupid.  They send the serial number in an e-mail, which I saved.  But, when the computer was going nuts about five days' worth of e-mail saves got nuked, including that one.  So, we're booted up again off the external drive and I'll work this way until we can clone the hard drive come Monday (or sooner if they get my e-mail and send it again).

And then the series premiere of PSYCH. It was funny and certainly different. I enjoyed about 85% of it. The 15% I didn't like were because of Dule Hill as his wise-ass, constantly complaining partner-in-crime. I mean, I get his purpose in the show, but that constant complaining and criticizing grew very tiresome to me over the course of a 90 minute premiere. I hope that aspect will be downplayed a bit on subsequent episodes.

I see that the DVR will be recording this week's LOVESPRING INTERNATIONAL (which is being rerun tonight). I wanted to see it since Eric McCormack (who also produces the show) is guest starring on it as a character very removed from Will Truman. Should be fun to see that.

I have the "season pass" button on now so I won't miss any more of the episodes due to my senility.

Got the serial number via e-mail, so Vinnie will come back tomorrow and we'll do the clone then.  Now, the question is do I eat anything else?  I ate at eleven-thirty, and still feel slightly full - I had three eggs, bacon, some hash browns (not that much), a salad with ranch dressing, and about a quarter of a piece of pie.  Hmmm.

Congrats to Matt's 17,000!

I'm now watching "Psych" on TV.  I watched a preview of the episode on the Internet earlier this week and thoroughly enjoyed it!  My TV has much better visual quality than my computer monitor...but TV has commercials. :P
