    Such a marvelous actor and activist. Reading his bio in the news piece shows what an awesome man he was...so important to theater, especially in LA.

    I've never tried it, but even so, I project that there is bad product marketed as one would expect, or jonesing, at least hope to aquire.

    I'll admit to trying different flavors over time that didn't always measure up to what one expected when they paid for it.

    Way to go to both of them. Or not.

    Either they loved each other that much, or they put up with one another for 65 years and more.

    Either way, something notable, in this day and age.

    Former big league shortstop & manager Jim Fregosi passed away yesterday. He was 71. He had been on a cruise of old time baseball players when he had multiple strokes. He was transported to the hospital & put on life support, but when they removed it he passed on. He'll be completing double plays forever now. He was one of my first favorite players, since I grew up an Angels fan. RIP Jim!

    I always loved his work. If I'd know he was in NCIS, I might have watched at least some of it.

    It seems the Henson men are destined to bring us much happiness but they must do it quickly. If you've forgotten, Jim Henson also died young at just 54.

    How terribly sad. Both father and son died far too young. His poor children .
