  1. Holy crap, the David Soul - Lance Kerwin version of Salem’s Lot gave me nightmares! To this day, there are scenes I try not to think of for fear of a sleepless night. What ever happened to Lance Kerwin? He was everywhere for a while back in the day.

    Bob Roll, isn’t it? Bob Ross is the “happy trees” painting guy, yes?

    From Across The Pond: Royal Weddings and Scandals

    By the time I was 6, I had lived in two foreign countries and three states. Just don’t ask me what I remember about it. Do you think the current generation of royal schoolkids will be sent to boarding school as young as their parents were? Especially Archie, whose mother has no experience/family tradition with shipping little kids off to live at school.
  5. When did “welp” become a replacement for “well” - as in “Welp, that episode sucked!” - and why?

    Indispensable Kitchen Gadgets

    I had checked the reviews on many of those convection/microwaves and most either don’t mention toasting things like bagels or say they can’t toast. I was hoping someone here might have hands on experience with one. Granted, I could just buy a toaster, but then we are back to more clutter, not less.

    Indispensable Kitchen Gadgets

    Does anyone know if such a thing as a combo microwave/toaster oven exists? Since my mother has started using a walker, I need to get rid of a kitchen cart and combining those two appliances would help. We can’t stack them, since she would be unable to reach the toaster oven (that would have to be on top). I have a small kitchen so getting more “open space” hasn’t been easy.

    Discontinued Foods You Miss

    I miss Pina Colada Oreo Thins. I really liked those. I think they were the only one of their limited run flavors I cared for.

    The picture of Meghan and Harry threw me for a minute - my mind went to “yellow brick road” and I couldn’t figure out why they were having a big Wizard of Oz to-do.

    House Hunters International

    I couldn’t decide if the Cambodia guy was creepy or pathetic or weird or all of the above both. I always wonder about people who move to a country where they will always look like an “outsider” - do they ever get treated like they belong? Or are they destined to be an outsider forever?

    In Memoriam: Celebrity Deaths

    Thank you for posting this! I have been wracking my brain trying to figure out who I had Torn confused with.
  12. I once saw a newspaper ad for rototiller pups. I don’t know if it was a typo or truth in advertising. Either way, I laughed so hard I sprained a lung.

    From Across The Pond: Royal Weddings and Scandals

    In the Church of England (That is what they are being baptized into, correct?), do godparents serve a particular role? (Besides supposedly supporting the child within the faith.) Are there defined roles for godparents, or rules for qualifying to be one? As someone baptized Catholic, I only had one set of godparents. The whole royal issue of having a whole flock of GPs seems odd to me. Do “regular” churchgoing folks in the U.K. do the same?
  14. Because people think they are being clever when they use it? (They are not.)

    I first read it as the Earl of Foofar, which really did make me giggle out loud.
