Davy Jones

Another part of my childhood has been taken away, Davy Jones of the Monkees has died of a heart attack at the age of 66. The Monkees was must see tv back in the 60's, sure they were a made up band for television but they could sing and the music is just as fresh today. Davy was the old style "song and dance" man of the group and teen heartthrob for the girls. Thanks Davy.
rest in peace

I wanted to say Happy Birthday to Dad, who turned 87 years young today.
He had a shrimp dinner and birthday cake so he was happy.

Whitney Houston Found Dead At 48

So much talent and Fame all thrown away because of crack. Addiction claims another . So now her daughter is left without a Mom because of the drug use most likely weakened her heart.
Not surprised. Who's next? They go in threes

Fez Wearing Comedian/Magician was manic ball of energy, i only ever saw him on the Ed Sullivan Show and his tv show was briefly syndicated  to PBS ( where i got see and love many British acts like Dave Allen ). Tommy died doing what he loved his act dropping dead on stage.
Does anyone even remember him?

Invading My Personal Space

As you know i'm agoraphobic ( i know it's stupid ailment to have ) and i HATE meeting strangers, especially when they come to house and invade my space. That's seems to be happening a lot lately, i'm so stressed out these days. I'm spending too much time online. This winter sucks we've only had handful cold days it;s too much like early summer. The recent invasion of the Travelling Comedy and Hate show ( ie the Republicans) invasion of Florida was so over bearing even Republicans we're sick of it. Romney, cult memeber and Millionaire bought the primary, Newt the crook just fumed and sputtered and looked impotent as usual,this guyis so slimey he makes Mitt and his magic underwear look trustworthy.Ron Paul said fuck it and left the state,Santorum (spelling) had family crisis and left early and no real chance. Watching those idiots made me so angry and sick and made wonder if there is any sane republican left in America. The teabaggers are doing a great job of killing off the party. Obama is shoe-in for re-election.
I want it all go away and leave me alone.

Thanks for all the soul Don, maybe you'll find the peace that seemed to wanted.
