Thank goodness for video records…

…because of video archives of the works of Harvey Korman we will not be without his humor.  Harvey Korman died this week.

More than anything, it was the way he played off the other actors – Carol Burnett, Tim Conway and others… Just HIlarious!

This morning’s conversation over coffee was about the sketches we could think of at the time – but there are SO many – I hope you think of his work and smile.  Also, check out this one I found on the Interwebs.  This is one of the best…  enjoy…



Big Bird!!

Your Score: Big Bird

You scored 68% Organization, 41% abstract, and 74% extroverted!

This test measured 3 variables.

First, this test measured how organized you are. Some muppets like Cookie Monster make big messes, while others like Bert are quite anal about things being clean.

Second, this test measured if you prefer a concrete or an abstract viewpoint. For the purposes of this test, concrete people are considered to gravitate more to mathematical and logical approaches, whereas abstract people are more the dreamers and artistic type.

Third, this test measured if you are more of an introvert or an extrovert. By definition, an introvert concentrates more on herself and an extrovert focuses more on others. In this test an introvert was somebody that either tends to spend more time alone or thinks more about herself.

You are very organized, both concrete and abstract, and more extroverted.

Here is why are you Big Bird.

You are both very organized. You almost always know where your belongings are and you prefer things neat. You may even enjoy cleaning and find it therapeutic. Big Bird is never sloppy and always under control… pretty good for a 6 year old bird living without a family.

You both are sometimes concrete and sometimes abstract thinkers. Big Bird can be quite dreamy at times and has no problem using his imagination. At the same time he is also practical and can be methodical in his search for answers to questions. You have a good balance in your life. You know when to be logical at times, but you also aren’t afraid to explore your dreams and desires… within limits of course.

You are both extroverts. Big Bird gets along with everyone. He makes friends easily and always has a positive attitude. You definitely enjoy the company of others, and you don’t have problems meeting new people… in fact you probably look forward to it. You are willing to take charge when necessary or work as part of a team.

Check it out for yourself!

Memorial Day


Day is done,
gone the sun,
From the hills,
from the lake,
From the skies.
All is well,
safely rest,
God is nigh.

Go to sleep,
peaceful sleep.
May the soldier
or sailor,
God keep.
On the land
or the deep,
Safe in sleep.

Love, good night,
Must thou go,
When the day,
And the night
Need thee so?
All is well.
Speedeth all
To their rest.

Photo Hunt: Shoes

A memorial to some of the Holocaust victims in Budapest, Hungry…

“The composition entitled ‘Shoes on the Danube Bank’ gives remembrance to the people shot into the Danube during the time of the Arrow Cross terror. The sculptor created sixty pairs of period-appropriate shoes out of iron. The shoes are attached to the stone embankment, and behind them lies a 40 meter long, 70 cm high stone bench. At three points are cast iron signs, with the following text in Hungarian, English, and Hebrew: “To the memory of the victims shot into the Danube by Arrow Cross militiamen in 1944-45. Erected 16 April 2005.” (source: MTI, Saturday, April 16, 2005.)

My Birthday…

…that’s today!  I was lucky enough to spend it with my best-est friends at a neighborhood Mexican restaurant.

Years ago my Dad told me that he was very happy to see that I have a group of wonderful friends here – and he was right then and is still right today!

God has blessed me in my life more times than I can count – and tonight was one of those blessings!

Thank you God, thank you friends!  YAY!  It’s my birthday, and it was a great day.
