A Muppet Moment

I admit I love the Muppets.  Jim Hensen in the mid 1950s took the art of puppet making to a whole new level.  I have seen (several times) one of his early efforts,  Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas which gives you a glimpse of how Muppets began and how far they have come.  Jim Hensen went on to create the characters for Sesame Street, The Muppet Show and numerous other movies and television shows.  Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy are now known around the world.

One of my favorite characters is the Chef and when I saw the clip below I loved it.  It made me smile.   So Happy NFAL and thanks to Jim Hensen and his wonderful Muppets.

One small note...there is a brief commercial (sorry) before the Chef appears...

A Moment to celebrate Veteran's Day

In case you missed the memo, today is Veteran's Day and there are many solemn celebrations for the women and men who have served our country over the decades.  I also believe that NFAL has a place among the men and women who wear uniforms and serve our country.  Here is my tribute to them...and as veteran, myself I can really relate to this tribute.

Kathy & Mo - The Angel Skit

In 1991 Kathy Najimy with Mo Gaffney did the Kathy & Mo - Parallel Lives Show.  Kathy went on to roles in the Sister Act movies, several television shows and most recently was the voice of Peggy in the King of the Hill animated show on Fox. 

This clip is from the Kathy & Mo show and involves two angels who are creating people on earth. 
Happy NFAL

Ellen & Chelsea

Chelsea Handler is big right now and I say enjoy it while you can.  She appeared several months ago on Ellen DeGeneres' show, and the clip is pretty funny and will probably encourage some of you to read her latest book--Chelsea, Chelsea, Bang Bang.    If you happen to love dogs then there's a bit about her dog, "Chunk" along with his picture.

May it make you smile:
