Hi All...Ed wasted no time getting into Christmas shows. He couldn't wait another week or two? We have a classic Lux however!

Note: I'll be traveling this week and won't be home until 12/3. I will try to get a BB thread up next Sunday, but it might not happen.

Sounds neat. Do they ever air George Burns and Gracie Allen radio shows?

I had an audiotape(part of a “Radio Reruns” release) of one of their episodes with Jack Benny as their special guest star. I played it for friends who weren’t familiar with them and they found it hilarious.

Hi, Vision!

Thanksgiving was really nice, and the trip, although an eleven-and-a-half-hour pain was smooth.

Did you have a good one?

Yea, it was freezing here today. Tried to have a cigar outside and only lasted through a little bit of it...38f at 4pm. Worst time of the year weather wise...cold and dark. Luckily the holidays are around this time.

Nice on the book. Don't forget The Secret Race. I'll be listening to the Kindle on my flight tomorrow to LA.

Because of Obamacare coming,I scheduled surgery on one shoulder in Jan. Eventually there’s going to be rationing, but liberals are too dumb to understand that.

It really is insanity. The worst part is trying to stay out of arguments with people that should know better.

At least we have the Bible to warn us that evil insanity will indeed rule in the last days. Forewarned is forearmed, even though it does not take away the pain of watching unnecessary idiocy.

Ain’t nothing like the smoothness of Bing.

Did you know about how he got his nickname “Der Bingle” because he read U.S. propaganda for the Germans during the War?

Didn’t know that.

And it was more than the amazing voice, he exuded Americanism.

From the quasi-reliable Wikipedia:

“Crosby made numerous live appearances before American troops fighting in the European Theater. He also learned how to pronounce German from written scripts, and would read propaganda broadcasts intended for the German forces. The nickname “Der Bingle” for him was understood to have become current among Crosby’s German listeners, and came to be used by his English-speaking fans. In a poll of U.S. troops at the close of World War II, Crosby topped the list as the person who had done the most for G.I. morale, ahead of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, General Dwight Eisenhower, and Bob Hope.”
