Thank you for service... even though you were a waitress.  May you rest in peace.

In a way, it kind of feels like closing a page on a chapter in history.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

So the last living participant in the Great War is no more.  That is incredibly sad.  I have spent much of my career reading and researching that war, and between 1995 and 1996 I interviewed eight surviving U.S. World War I vets.  Three of them had fathers who had served in the Civil War; one's father was born a slave.  Those conversations were an amazing chance to touch base with men whose lives began in the 1890's.  It saddens me that they are now all gone.


Rest in peace, dear lady, and all who served alongside you.  You earned it. Cheers

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
