    Sunday

    Morning y'all, another cloudy start to the day and it is currently 71F and 87% humidity. Expecting a partly cloudy afternoon and a high of 84F. I've heard that Fick does have a 14 incher, but it's not attached to him, it's not real, and you don't really want to know what he does with it.

    That is a very disturbing photo and on so many levels. I'd say Fick really does need to see a doctor. A doctor of psychiatry.
  6. No, he really was not an international sensation.

    Morning all. 67F under clear skies, with 97% humidity. Slight chance of showers and storms early, then decreasing clouds. Humid. Winds out of the SW at 10-15 MPH. High of 85F. The Iowa Hawkeyes beat the Iowa State Cyclones, 18-17, in a twice delayed game due to lightning. The game took 5 hours, 53 minutes to complete. The first delay was 49 minutes, while the second was 2 hours, 6 minutes. Iowa's team managers and state troopers had an assist in the Hawkeyes' 18-17 win over Iowa State on Saturday in a game delayed nearly three hours by lightning. Iowa Coach Kirk Ferentz said that during the second lightning delay, which spanned 2 hours, 6 minutes, Iowa's managers left Jack Trice Stadium and scoured the area for sandwiches. Helped by a police escort, they brought back about 60 sandwiches for the Hawkeyes players from three different local eateries. "I don't know where they stopped exactly -- I didn't get one of [the sandwiches]," Ferentz said, "but I did see somebody with like a 12-incher or 14-incher." I do hope he was talking about a sandwich. Herr Fick on the other hand...

Jane Wyman ***A button-nosed star actress of the 1940s and 50s, Jane Wyman began her career as a radio singer and entered films in the mid-1930s as a bit player and chorine using the name Jane Durrell. Jane Wyman was born Sarah Jane Mayfield on January 5, 1917, in St. Joseph, Missouri (she was also known later as Sarah Jane Faulks). Wyman was pigeonholed as a peppy blonde, sometimes wisecracking, sometimes ditzy, with occasional leads in mostly low-budget fare and plenty of supporting roles in more important films. She acted such roles for a decade before garnering recognition for her sensitive performance in Billy Wilder's harrowing "The Lost Weekend" (1945), opposite Ray Milland. Invariably a close-cropped brunette after that, Wyman went on to distinguish herself, typically as sensitive, intelligent, placid types, in several fine dramas and the occasional (if generally less worthy) comedy or musical. Among her career plaudits were her four Oscar nominations for Best Actress for her dramatic roles as a stern mother in "The Yearling" (1946), as a deaf-mute rape victim in "Johnny Belinda" (1948, which won her the award), as a self-sacrificing nursemaid in "The Blue Veil" (1951) and as Rock Hudson's "Magnificent Obsession" in the 1954 Douglas Sirk melodrama. Jane Wyman In the mid-50s, Wyman appeared regularly on TV as host of "The Jane Wyman Theatre"; though her feature stardom began to slide rather abruptly, she also continued performing in films including Sirk's fine "All That Heaven Allows" (1956). One of her last notable feature leads came in the Disney film "Pollyanna" (1960), in which she revisited the role of the stern matriarch who learns to love which she had played in "The Yearling". Following an absence of several years, she resurfaced in a number of TV-movies and later emerged as Angela Channing, one of America's favorite nasty matriarchs, in the popular CBS TV soap, "Falcon Crest" (1981-90). Wyman's second husband was actor and future US President Ronald Reagan, with whom she collaborated to produce daughter Maureen Reagan, sometime actress, singer and White House adviser who died in 2001. They also adopted a son, Michael, a radio personality. She later twice married and divorced Fox musician and vocal coach Fred Karger. Jane Wyman died at the age of 90 at her Rancho Mirage home on Monday, September 10, 2007, having long suffered from arthritis and diabetes. TRIVIA: Height: 5' 5½" (1.66 m) Her name changed to "Jane Faulks" when she was unofficially "adopted" by the Faulks family, middle-aged neighbors of her single mother. Moved to So. California with Mrs. Faulks when she was widowed in 1928. Several sources have given her date of birth as January 4, 1914, which would mean she was one of the first (and one of the very few) actresses to make herself older. She is a serious convert to Roman Catholicism, attending Mass with good friend Loretta Young. Bell Telephone Ad - September 1944

    Here we have a rare photograph of Herr Fick, Hanz and Franz, and the rest of his comrades. Hanz and Franz are inserting eggs into Herr Fick's arse. Fick's arse made a vunderbar incubator. Soon the chicks will be born, and Fick will go back to being the squads man whore.

  12. I have absolutely no recollection of him or those songs, so had to look up his discography. Seems not to have had much exposure outside North America. RIP Eddie...
  13. So long, Eddie, you had one hell of a ride! Not exactly the performer of the year in terms of his moves on stage, but had some great songs and a bit of a unique voice. I wonder what he could have done if he had not fallen into the trap of alcohol and drugs. One of my favorite songs.

    We have often wondered as to why Donnie passes out at the sight of big boobs, but I don't think that's the reason. As a member of the medical community, it is my professional opinion that when Donnie sees big boobs, he gets excited and his body diverts the blood that normally flows to his brain to another region of his anatomy, leaving him very light-headed and prone to assuming a prone position.

  17. Belmont Radio Ad - September 1943 1939: U39 attacks a battle group led by the Aircraft Carrier, HMS Ark Royal. She fires torpedo's at the carrier, but these miss. 3 Destroyer's of the Ark Royal's escort, launch an immediate counter-attack against U39 and sink her with depth charges. U39 gains the dubious honour of becoming the first U-boat to be sunk in the war. *Danielle Darrieux 1940: Congress passed the Selective Training and Service Act, providing for the first peacetime draft in U.S. history. 1940: Hitler again postpones operations 'Sea-lion'. This time till the 27th September, the last day of the month with suitable tides. Danielle Darrieux 1941: Army Group Centre completes the encirclement of two Soviet armies at Kiev. 1941: Rommel launches a probing operation with the 21st Panzer Division towards Sidi Barrani in the belief that a British fuel dump was located there. The British forces begin to fall back. John B. Stetson Company Ad - September 1944 1942: Counter-attacks by the Soviet 62nd Army in Stalingrad fails as the 6th Army renews its attack against Stalingrad. The Soviet 62nd Army is hemmed into a narrow strip of land no more than 10 miles at its widest and 4 miles as its narrowest. However, a shortage of troops meant that the 6th Army could only attack on very narrow frontages. Couple this to the fact that the 6th Army was fighting in built-up areas, meant that progress was slow and losses high. Even so, the 51st Corps advanced toward the inner city and the Central Station. 1943: Heavy fighting continues in the Salerno bridgehead, with another German counter-attack. A U.S. paratroop battalion is dropped behind German lines. French commandos land in Corsica to help patriots fighting the Germans. British Special Boat Squadron occupies Kos in Aegean. 1943: The Germans begin to evacuate Bryansk, some 200 miles Southwest of Moscow. Danielle Darrieux 1944: Russian troops reach the Vistula river in the Praga suburb of Warsaw, as planes drop supplies to the Polish Home Army which is trapped inside the city. Three Russian Baltic fronts launch an offensive with 900,000 men, 3,000 tanks and 2,600 aircraft against Army Group North which is forced to fall back to defensive positions around Riga. 1944: The French battlefleet enters Toulon. Danielle Darrieux *Danielle Yvonne Marie Antoinette Darrieux (born 1 May 1917) is a French actress and singer, who has appeared in more than 110 films since 1931. As one of France's great movie stars, her eight-decade career is among the longest in film history. Born in Bordeaux, France, she is the daughter of a medical doctor who was at the time serving with the French Army during World War I but died when she was seven years old. Raised in Paris she studied the cello at the Conservatoire de Musique. At 13, she won a part in the musical film "Le Bal" (1931). Her beauty combined with her singing and dancing ability led to numerous other offers, and Mayerling (1936) brought her to fame. In 1935, Darrieux married director/screenwriter, Henri Decoin, who encouraged her to try Hollywood. She signed with Universal Studios to star in "The Rage of Paris" (1938) opposite Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.. Afterwards, she elected to return to Paris. Danielle Darrieux Danielle found herself working under the scrutiny of the new Nazi regime. She made the best of things, continuing to star in films and entertaining the occupation troops as a singer. Unfortunately, this latter activity caused Ms. Darrieux to be labelled a collaborator by the French underground, which at one point targeted the actress for execution. After the war, there were some awkward moments for Danielle, but the death sentence was allowed to lapse. After her divorce, she fell in love with Porfirio Rubirosa, a Dominican Republic diplomat and notorious womanizer. They married in 1942. His anti-Nazi opinions resulted in his forced residence in Germany. Darrieux accepted a promotional trip in Berlin in exchange for Rubirosa's liberation. They lived in Switzerland until the end of the war, and divorced in 1947. She married script-writer George Mitsikides in 1948, and lived with him until his death in 1991. She has continued to work, her career now spanning eight decades, most recently providing the voice of the protagonist's grandmother in the animated feature, Persepolis (2007), which deals with the impact of the Islamic revolution on a girl's life as she grows to adulthood in Iran. She was paid homage to in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds (2009): when Shosanna Dreyfus is preparing to take the Nazis down, her assistant calls her Danielle Darrieux. On May 1st, 2017 she celebrated her 100th birthday. Danielle Darrieux died on 17 October 2017 at the age of 100, due to complications from a fall. Kodak Ad - September 1945

    Morning y'all, it's Friday the 13th! If you see this guy thumbing for a ride and pick him up... your day is probably not going to end well. Cloudy skies, 87% humidity and 73F. Expecting this Friday the 13th to be cloudy, a slight chance of scattered showers, and a high of 75F. Summer returns with a vengeance tomorrow. Hopefully it won't be lopping off people's heads, unlike the fellow pictured above.

    Thursday

    Around here, the Poplar trees have had yellow and falling leaves for the past three weeks, but that's normal for the Yellow Poplar trees native to Virginia. They are the very first trees to change color and go from green to yellow to brown near the end of summer.
