Garden Amaryllis

I made some changes in some categories so some things won't work anymore. The Garden Pics and now going to be just that and I dropped the Gratuitous from them.

This Amaryllis has been in our garden a few years. Last year the deer got to it before it bloomed, this year they were nice to us.

Even the flying insects,as you can see, think it is nice.

Old Bond Defends New Bond

Roger Moore, who I never liked as James Bond defends the newest James Bond.

Moore played Simon Templar for five years on the TV series The Saint and I thought he was great in that role. Bond IMHO just never fit him.

Really not much else to say about Roger except he is still busy doing movies and voice things.

As Himself

In 1958 there was a somewhat lame movie about the acceptance of Rock and Roll named Let's Rock. In this this movie there were some wellknown people playing themselves like Paul Anka and Della Reese,Also playing himslef was a somewhat less well known actor named Wink Martindale.

In a career most actors play many characters, Wink had gone through almost his entire career playing himself.

He went through the 60's playing himself or as host of a number of forgetable gameshows like What's This Song and How's Your Mother-in-Law before finally hitting it big in 1972 as the host of Gambit which ran until 1981.

Those were Wink's golden years as he overlapped as the host of The New Tic Tac Dough which ran from 1978 through 85 and the short lived Password Plus.

Towards the end of the 80's he was host of a show called High Rollers which had originally been hosted by Alex Trebek before he moved on the Jeopardy fame.

Stan Lee

Stan Lee should be one of the richest men in the world.
He will certainly go down as one of the more creative.
The period in the 60's where he created Spiderman, the Fantastic Four and all the rest of the Marvel universe was amazing. The fact that most of his creations from that period are still going dtrong is proof of his genius.

Somehow he managed to lose control of all that and now he is content to do cameos in the movies that have made mega bucks from his characters like Spidey 3.
