so.....an apple a day really does keep the doctor away.
I don't think I'll comment on taxi brawls and constructed time gaps.

Hey Laura,
That version of the George Gershwin classic is very good. Always liked that tune and it reminds me of 1940's New York.
Oh, we were subjected to that Presidential 'debate'. It just about cured my insomnia listening to that from 2 until 3:30 in the morning.
Take care, Gary

Magical Mystery Tour outtake was so cheerful, I wish they'd left it in. But "The real Time Warp?" alarmed me because an extra 297 years will make me 360 years old. If our calendar is corrected, I don't think Social Security could handle the retro checks.

From the ridiculous (Mitt) to the sublime (There is honest good). I snarled and then my eyes leaked. Thank you. Its always nice to finish on a high note.

Oh my, as I am reading the article about the meningitis outbreak, a news story came on the TV about it. My daughter gets shots every few months for back pain suffered in a car accident years ago. It is too early in the morning to call her so meanwhile I will worry if she has had a shot recently.

That's funny, the two articles Lawless said she wasn't going to comment on, are the two I read. ;)

I can't imagine being a cabbie. Well, I can now. Holy hell. What a story.

And that site is pretty cool with the real Time Warp article. I'm glad he debunked it in the end as historical timelines are already hard to get my head around. But I know the church did fudge things quite a bit.
