she did have a few singles out, including a song from the "butterfly" ost which did pretty well despite her horrendous voice and vomit inducing lyrics. I do recall, after looking it up, that she also had a duet with jermaine jackson. she was THAT hot back in the day...

She was in a labor camp for 5 years and after liberation she was an Israeli pioneer who was there at the founding of that country.

She was married in Israel and emigrated to the US with her husband and kids to try for a better life in America. None of them spoke a word of English. The husband went to College in the US and became an engineer. Their children were very successful and she now has 7 grandchildren. Every one of them graduated college with advanced degrees from places like U of Chicago and Johns Hopkins. She was not boastful in the least but grateful. God Bless America and only in America.

that's a fantastic story, rnoldh! thank you very much for sharing.

My buddy updated my OS, and did all of these other upgrades to my computer. I am not totally sure I understand what he did, but it made a great computer awesome.

The Replacements last night were just awesome. Had some flubbed lines and confusion that you might expect from old guys who just started playing together again after 20 years (and I don't think they planned out a setlist in advance...) but they really sounded great. It was worth stepping away early from the Pixies (who were good but weren't blowing me away) to get into a good position since all the old folk in the crowd certainly weren't letting any stragglers in.

Their sound seemed modernized a bit. It didn't have a lot of the 80's shimmery treble and harmonics that I actually find a little bit grating (my ears start to get tired after too many replacements album recordings)

I will say that I was surprised by how good Blink 182 was. I saw them in 2001 and lets just say that 12 years of practice with their instruments has done them good.

Everyone is unhappy and their unhappiness is caused by something.

 

Yawn.

One of the characteristics about Gen X is extreme adaptability so I'll never stop learning.

When I go to the dentist to get my teeth cleaned up, them fools give me a free toothbrush. Hey, why should I buy the cow when I get the milk for free (buy a toothbrush)?

If only they'd give me a Fructis when I got my hair cut.

smile.gif You are both quite correct.

Jlib was a Rhodes Scholar and I went to Rice U.

Jan is probably a little older and wiser than me too. And my Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll Days are OVER. Ambien, viagra, and Testosterone don't count of course biggrin.gif

I used to know many famous people but many are dead, like Roy C., and Craig C. What a thread there could be about Cohn but I don't want to say anything about dead people.

And Roma, I still owe you that present. I'll spoil the surprise, and tell you that it's a Marilyn Chambers Ivory Snow Soap Box, unopened ( a porn "personality", now deceased gave it to me ). I think I can still find it but I'll find something more symbolic and representative of the Lower East Side and the hippie era for you and the kids.

I would love to start a thread featuring the Holocaust Survivor that I mentioned a few pages back. She would not mind a bit. But no one seems to care about historical threads but me.

Oh well, off to see MNF. I'm in a good mood.
