“You know stop lights don’t come any redder than the one you just went through”

“Relax the handcuffs are tight because they’re new. They’ll stretch after you wear them a while”

“If you take your hands off the car, I’ll make your birth certificate a worthless document”

“If you run,you’ll only go to jail tired”

“You don’t know how fast you were going? I guess that means I can write anything I want to on the ticket, huh?”

“Warning! You want a warning? Okay, I’m warning you not to do that again, or I’ll give you another ticket”

“Fair? You want me to be fair? Listen, fair is a place where you go to ride on rides, eat cotton candy and corn dogs, and step in monkey crap”

“Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets and my wife gets a toaster oven”

“How big were those ‘Just two beers’ you said you had?”

and the winner is…

“You didn’t think we give pretty woman tickets? You’re right, we don’t.  Sign here!”

Surprisingly this was The Lovin’ Spoonfuls only number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.  It made number 1 on this day August 23, 1966 and stayed for 3 weeks.  John Sebastian’s younger brother Mark wrote this song and John made it a bit more upbeat.  You gotta love those ‘pork chops,’ ahh the 60’s.  Thanks to Alquit2 for the video.

Another chart topper today, only in 1974 was Tell Me Something Good by Rufis featuring Chaka Khan.  This is a really good video to get your FUNK ON, Live in NEW YORK’S Central Park! sadly the author did not allow embedding but it is worth the click.

After seeing the photos, I wonder why I never watched the show Sex in the City.   I remember Kim Catrall from a silly but funny movie Mannequin.  She was born Clare Woodgate in Liverpool, England, UK on this day August 21, 1956.  She is a Golden Globe and Emmy nominated actress who is probably best known today for her role as Samantha Jones on Sex and the City.  She has had a very successful acting career long before Sex, in movies that are to many to list but here are a few that I recognize, Mannequin, Police Academy, Porky’s, Tribute, Masquerade, Big Trouble in Little China, The Bonfire of the Vanities, Exception To The Rule, Live Nude Girls, Robin Cook’s Invasion, The Return of the Musketeers,  and for all the Trekkies out there, Star Trek 6: The Undiscovered Country.  Not only do I not recall seeing Kim in some of the movies I listed above or the fact that she made about a zillion more movies than I listed, she also had many television appearances and stared on Broadway in numerous shows.

I was surfing the net and ran into my Grandfather, no actually I ran into this article at LiveScience about Time travel and the new concepts and theoretical forms of matter, ect, ect. I’m rambling, but the article was interesting and at the bottom there is a link to a short movie.  Worth a look.

“We know that bending does happen all the time, but we want the bending to be strong enough and to take a special form where the lines of time make closed loops,”

OK, so I’ll fess up, not everything I listened to was heavy.  Since The Police brought me back to 1977, it just so happens that this song Read the rest of this entry »

stainglass.jpgJust a thought I’m having.  Thinking back a long time ago, when I was a teen, I remember seeing Billy Graham on Television (I didn’t have a good opinion about televangelist or even religion at the time) but what He said made me think.  He said (something like this, I don’t recall his words exactly), either Jesus was and is who we believe Him to be, the Son of the Living God or He pulled the biggest prank in the history of the world.  That made me stop and think about how He, Jesus fulfilled  all the prophecies He fulfilled, like the prophecy of His actual birth.  We as a people record Time by His very existence.  If He did pull a prank like that, then we should worship Him just for pulling off such a prank! IMHO 

Jesus Is Lord
