mike, some of my happiest childhood memories are of spending saturday nights at my grandparents. lawrence welk came on at 1900, with champaign lady norma zimmer, guy and ralna, anacani, tanya welk, tom netherton, etc. they sang as grandpa and i played chess and dominos. after that, "hee haw" came on. that mildly entertaining idiocy lasted another
hour, then it was time to go home. grandpa is gone now 17 years and i miss him as if he died yesterday. please excuse the nonextropian nature of this post. {8-] spike
