Again I have to say WOW! I know I have posted contest in the past few months on my sites but this time I entered one on Comic Coverage. It was called White Christmas and you had to name the most of 18 characters whose name had the word "white" in it. I knew 14 thinking I may lose. I mean there had to be someone who knew all of them but Mark said I submitted the winning entry. My prize is a DVD of The Christmas Story. Thanks Mark and as Brenda Song would say on the Suite Life, "Yeah me!"

My Pop Shop

I just opened a little store on line that I call My Pop Shop. You can get t-shirts, mugs etc. there. At present there are only two designs. If you are a Monkees fan you might like this design.

If you like to play golf then you may like the this design.

So take a look around the store to see if there is anything you want. I plan to add more in the future.

Rest In Peace Beverly Garland

I just heard that actress Beverly Garland died December 5th after a long illness. She made her film debut in the movie D.O.A. in the 1950's. She made many B grade movies but to many she is better known for her television work. From 1969 to 1972 she played Barbara Harper Douglas on the hit sit-com "My Three Sons" when her character married Steve Douglas played by Fred MacMurray. This was the first time I had ever seen her work and the one she is best known to me and others of my generation. In the 1980's she co-starred as Kate Jackson's Mother on "Scarecrow and Mrs. King." In the 1990's she had a recurring role on "Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" as Ellen Lane. From 1997 to 2004 she had the role of Ginger on "7th Heaven."
She also owned and operated the Beverly Garland Holiday Inn with her husband Filmore Crank. Her husband passed away in 1999 and Beverly ran the Inn till her death. Her daughter Carrington Garland played Kelly Capwell on the soap opera Santa Barbara.
Television won't be the same without a chance to have a visit with Beverly Garland. She will be missed.
