He was 94 years old.


Watched all of them in the early 70's... Lolly's Adverbs for Sale, Conjunction Junction, I'm Just a Bill, also liked Rufus and Pronouns for sure! Literacy would be way higher if these songs were available in today's classrooms.

RIP Bob, a heartfelt Thank You as well.

I remember most of those cartoons (and their messages), too. Those songs really stick in your head. Maybe someone should send a compilation dvd to a certain someone in D.C. to learn about grammar and how Bills are formed.

Abbas, R.I.P.

While I’m confident most are not aware of his photography, he was a talented photojournalist IMO. I always felt I understood the narrative of his work.

At first I thought you were referring to Abbas Kiarostami, someone else who most people are not aware was a brilliant photographer (in addition to his filmmaking)... and I thought you were a few years behind in hearing about his death.
