The Honeymooners for the Middle of the Week

In the early 1950's, Jackie Gleason created a unique sitcom...The Honeymooners.  Ralph and Alice Kramden (played by Gleason and Audrey Meadows), lived a working class existence in New York City. This clip is  part I from a show that aired in October 1955.  Includes the opening theme and credits for the show and is pretty clever and fun to watch.

The Hefner Wedding is Off...

I know that I have been anxiously awaiting the exchange of vows between Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris this Saturday, but now I have to find something else to fill in the 10 or 15 minutes reserved for the ceremony.  Hugh is 85 (and looks pretty darn good) and Crystal is 25 (but looks older).  It would have been Hugh's third marriage and Crystal's first venture down the aisle.

If you are wondering what happened, well it seems the 25 year old changed her mind -- Hugh is not going to be the love of her life.  There is also a rumor that one of Dr. Phil's sons was involved in swaying Crystal away from the altar, most likely by playing old clips from his father's shows.

It just shows that love is a tricky thing no matter how old you are, how well you write your prenuptial agreement, how good you look in bathrobes or how much stock you own in Viagra.  There are no guarantees when it comes to matters of the heart.

I have heard that Hugh is heartbroken but also busily arranging his next pool party at the Mansion where, no doubt, a new love will soon emerge from the long list of Playmates who love to frolic with Hugh and his 2,000 closest friends.   Healing is on the way, Hugh...

Dogs and Alcohol

I guess stories and pictures of dogs that supposedly have had a bit too much to drink are as popular as posting intoxicated celebrities!  This was sent to me and so I have to pass it along...

My house was broken into last night by two robbers who locked me in the bathroom, and proceeded to steal all they could carry.  My watchdog, "Sunshine", did not alert me, and for this reason I am giving him away. I no longer want a dog - I'm installing an electric fence and detection devices with alarms. They're cheaper and more reliable.  For those interested in adopting the dog please send an e-mail urgently.
