Rest in Peace Eartha Kitt


I just saw that one of television's Catwoman and singer of the popular Christmas tune "Santa Baby", Eartha Kitt, has died of colon cancer at the age of 81. My Dad died of the same cancer. While cancer of any type is scary to have there are some that over time have become more curable and less scary then others. I hope one day to hear that colon cancer is one of the more curable ones. I just wish they could have done that before my Dad found out that he had it.

Video of the Week:Norelco Santa Ad

I can't believe that I have gone nearly the entire Christmas season and seen alot of Christmas ads. However, this is one that I use to see every year but not this year. Thanks to YouTube I can remedy that for readers of On My Mind. Here is the video of the week a 1970's version of the Norelco ad with Santa riding on an electric razor.

Davy Jones Christmas CD


I just learned from Monkees Home Page
that Davy Jones has released another Christmas CD. Davy must love Christmas. He released his first Christmas CD twice and it contains the best version of Silent Night I have ever heard. Now comes his newest one of which you see the cover above. He did a special study to find out what Christmas means to everyone and found that most of what they think about are kids, Reindeer and
parties- and Religion. He had to commission a special study to find that out? You can read about it if you click here.

Dr. Who Meet Dr.Who

I just saw this video "Time Shift" They have a clever why of having the current Dr. Who meet the 5th Dr. Who. The ending I believe is how the creators of the current series must have felt about the 5th Dr. It ends with them doing the intro to one of the Dr.'s Christmas episodes.
