    But Ricky didn't write it. I was astonished when I learned Gene Pitney had written it!

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    ...take a nap, read War and Peace... Has anyone ever been on one of those European River Cruises? Someone my SIL met on a bus tour of England told her it's not as great as the ads have you believe. Many of the riverbanks are built up, so all you see are walls and you waste a LOT of time in locks, waiting for them to either fill or empty.

    Help me, help me! I dreamed I was singing the Liberdee, Liberdee, Lib Er Dee jingle.

    Y'know, they dropped "Oil of" a few years ago. It's just Olay now. I guess we'll never know what an Olay is that they got the oil from. On another note: I know many of us here can't stand the Consumer Cellular ads, but I have them as my cell provider and, since I have a "dumb phone" and want no parts of a Smart one, it works well for me. They just emailed me with an offer - for an additional $3/mo, they'll sign me up for Roadside Assistance with "Signature Auto Club" - So I went to Signature's website and it turns out it's run by Allstate, just like the roadside assistance I was getting from AARP - MUCH cheaper. The AARP motor club was costing me $59/yr. With this other club, it's on $36, so I'm happy. It doesn't give you trip routing service, but the AARP Motor club won't send you paper maps anymore, either - they'll email the route to you, which doesn't work for me. How the hell are you supposed to follow an emailed map when you're driving? Asshats. Anyway, the Consumer Cellular offer is what I need - lockout service, towing, jump starts & fetch gas for you. What else do you need? friendperidot - Pushing 70. LOL. I'll have to change it to 71, since 70 pushed me back. I can add that to the list of exercises I do: Running my mouth, rolling my eyes, jumping to conclusions and diddly-squats.

    I think they think it's sexy.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    The park is Isle Royale, which I always thought was pronounced like it looks, but lately I've heard people who should know pronounce it Royal. Roey, like I would have done, said Royale, which Alex corrected to Royal. He shouldn't have been dinged for it (and wasn't) because mis-pronunciations that include the correct amount of syllables don't get dinged.

    It's probably from some Hebrew name like Ronel. Edgar 3 names: I pre-guessed Poe, too, totally forgot about Hoover, but went straight to Edgar Lee Masters. I wonder who the other, unrevealed, two were.

    I just saw this on FB where someone referred to it as a Wo-Mansion. Hahahahaha.

    I love jetpunk - that's how I knew North Macedonia. I don't do the capitals - too many of 'em I don't know - but, jeez, Bujumbura? Warren Zevon wrote a song about Bujumbura and the Tutsi vs. Hutu. Never recorded it. We Zevoneers only know of it via a "field recording" of a show where he sang it. ETA - I laughed when I realized the FJ was Izaak Walton

    Sorry I left out the m in Holmberg. It ain't easy using a laptop when there's also a cat in your lap.

    I think Mr. Holberg missed the part about "trick-or-treaters"... 😉

    That one guy in the Revitive ad, too...you know, the "Quality of Life" guy that sounds like he's about to cry... Then there's a Lipozene (?) (The Holly R. Peete one) where they say you can lose 4x more!! More than what?
