I can't wait til he wins!


You Can't Vote for him
You Don't have to live under him

So other than brain dead - WHY??

PS: Keep it cool so Mr. Taylor won't blow this away Big Grin
OK, time to blow up this thread. Smile

I've been wondering, assuming that Trump and Clinton are the nominees, how badly does Donald lose?

Nobody could ever approach Jefferson's winning percentage, but I'm thinking that Hillary could challenge for the #2 slot given all of the gifts that Donald brings. Among female voters, could Donald get 25%? Latino voters?

What do you think?

Yeah, the leader of the free world doesn't affect the rest of us at all...what was I thinking?
Just heard from a friend yesterday that Paloma matriarch Barbara Richards passed. I only had the pleasure of meeting her once, but my wife and I spent a very pleasant mid-morning with her and my buddy in her kitchen and back porch.
It was the complete opposite of the normal Napa visit and was quite literally a visit with an old friend in their home.
Unfortunately all my Paloma Merlot is gone or I'd open a bottle and enjoy it in her memory. She definitely left an impression on me and her passing brings a bit of sadness this morning. RIP Barbara.

I think it's bad juju if they do a retrospective of your career on TV at that age. Our local news just did a piece on Jane Little the oldest member of the ATL symphony and she died a few days later.

Did you notice his role as Rod Taylor's neighbor in The Time Machine?

Also if you've never seen it, there's a special feature on the DVD. Taylor comes back to London for return visit and meets up with Young. It was made, I think, just for the video and it's very neat to see the two of them together again much older.

"In 1993 a combination sequel-documentary short, Time Machine: The Journey Back, directed by Clyde Lucas, was produced. In its third section, Michael J. Fox talks about his experience with the Delorean sports car time machine from Back to the Future. In the short's final section, written by screenwriter David Duncan, Rod Taylor, Alan Young, and Whit Bissell reprise their roles from the original 1960 film."

This was apparently done for PBS. Both actors of course were 23 years older than in the original movie. When the movie was released on DVD they cut everything else out except for the reunion scene of these two actors.

My mother took me to it in 1960 at the great Avalon Theatre in Chicago. The Morlocks scared the shit out of me. Funny now when you see their "scary" eyes are simply light bulbs.

How very sad. I enjoyed meeting his wife, Molly, one time but never had the privilege of meeting Donn. Very good wines, although their Signature bottling unfortunately (for me) became a bit rich for my taste.

I wish I had seen it.
Rick MacLeish, ex-Flyers great. Scored arguably the biggest goal in team history. A smooth skater in an era of few of them, possessed a deadly wrist shot and all around cool guy. I got to meet him several times at a local watering hole in my home town.
