• The stage beckons...
    When I was in high school, I was in all the plays and musicals. I was/am an actor. My whole life I pretended to be other people I'd seen on TV or read about. I was bitten by the acting bug (Thespianactorus Onstageus) when I was the lonely drifter in "Stone Soup", in third grade.

  • The year 1987 in music was astounding, yet most would argue with you if you said so…
    If you were into pop, soul, dance, heavy rock or glam-metal, even thrash; you cannot deny the importance of the flood of music that was released. In this blog, I will remind you of the incredible albums that came out that year, since half of the releases are celebrating their 30th Anniversary this year! I’ll add several albums in each of my blog entries as we go through the rest of the year, to jog a memory or put a smile on your face as you recall buying it on cassette (maybe CD or vinyl) and playing it until it sounded horrible and you needed to buy another, to replace it! Feel free to add your comments or memories of whichever one clicked with you! I’d love to read your memories!

What they didn't realize was there is a restaurant in full view of the water...and there was a wedding going on when they stripped down. Tomko and O'Neil are now facing disorderly conduct charges but the bride Leah Allen doesn't seem mad.
