Here are just a few examples: Video Phone – just about every episode included a conversation between George Jetson [...]

The classic comedy “Cheers” was set in a sports bar in downtown Boston. Owned by ex-major league pitcher Sam Malone, the show’s name came from the regular outpourings of emotion as the locals enjoyed baseball, beer, and the company of other rabid fans.

Fries = Salad

I’m not inherently a fan of conspiracies. I don’t believe the moon landing was a hoax, Paul McCartney died in a car crash in 1966, or there’s an ancient race of lizard people controlling humanity (although at times the reptile overlord theory certainly feels not all that far-fetched). However, there IS truth to the [...]

Zoomify me

One of the by-products of the great lockdown has been the Zoomification of many businesses.

I spy a skunk

I’m not sure about you, but I always love a good spy story. Just recently, I came upon the true story of a CIA agent who, incredibly, was able to sell government secrets to Russia for almost ten years before finally being arrested by his superiors. It was the mid-eighties, and Aldrich “Rick” Ames was desperate [...]

The wind in your sails

Herman Watzinger: [about the ropes that kept the raft united] It’s our only chance. Our only hope now is to try and reinforce the ropes. Tighten up everything again. Thor Heyerdahl: Herman... We have built this raft just like Tiki did, and he made it there. And so will we. This is the faith [...]
