  1. The NFL draft is now swallowing up and choking off my whole neighborhood. They are taking over every square inch of space all the way up and down the Parkway. More so than with the Pope's recent visit.

  2. so here's this sheet this morning about trump's approval numbers being the lowest this early on since 1945...


    of course I saw on fox yesterday 'the new media's 100 day war against president trump' which explains everything.


    anything to make it up to the democrats whom they let down so badly last year. :(


    reporting that his approval rating is below zero even ain't gonna stop the juggernaut that has been unleashed.



    Juggernaut? That is a reassuring term. I'm waiting to be carted off to jail in the middle of the night.

  3. I believe they went swimming at Miller's Pond.  There were several vacation spots mentioned, including Friends Lake, Shadow Lake, Crescent Lake, and Crystal Falls.  I don't know the name of the park where they played sports.  Could it be simply City Park?


    In my previous question, I asked for Beaver's elementary school.  It was Grant Avenue Grammar School.

    Friends Lake was the one usually mentioned. The athletic field was Metzger's Field. Your turn.

  4. I saw Sue Randall the other night on Perry Mason playing a very dramatic role.

    Seriously, she really does resemble my second grade teacher.

    Getting back to my question, I'm looking for ___________Pond and _________Lake. To add to the question, when the boys play sports, they play at ___________Field.

  5. Top psychiatrists at Yale conference warn that Trump has a ‘dangerous mental illness’-


    “We have an ethical responsibility to warn the public about Donald Trump’s dangerous mental illness,” said Dr. John Gartner, a practicing psychotherapist...


    “Worse than just being a liar or a narcissist, in addition he is paranoid, delusional and grandiose thinking and he proved that to the country the first day he was president,” Gartner explained. “If Donald Trump really believes he had the largest crowd size in history, that’s delusional.”


    Dr. James Gilligan, a psychiatrist and professor at New York University, said...

    "....I can recognize dangerousness from a mile away,” he said. “You don’t have to be an expert on dangerousness or spend fifty years studying it like I have in order to know how dangerous this man is.”....




    An easy argument is that that it's irresponsible to make psychiatric judgments from afar. Can't he be forced to be personally examined and evaluated by a few of them?

  6. Very good, DGF.  



    Diane Brewster



    Sue Randall 


    Sue Randall was a Philly girl.  Perhaps you knew her, DGF?  You're up next.

    She was my second grade teacher...................Staying with Beaver, Name two bodies of water that the kids or families went to for recreation.

  7. My mistake.  Lloyd Corrigan played Wally's father on "The Adventures Of Ozzie and Harriet".  That's what I first looked at before looking at "Leave It To Beaver".  It was indeed Karl Swenson as George Haskell.


    Now. staying with "Leave It To Beaver", Beaver had two teachers in elementary school.  The first actress only appeared in a few episodes before she was replaced by another actress.  Can you name the two actresses and their character's names?  Bonus points if you can name the elementary school where they taught.

    Off the top of my head, I know it was Miss Landers and Miss Canfield.

  8. Thanks Lav.  The clues to this next couple may sound familiar, but it's not the couple just mentioned.  


    He was a veteran of Broadway, TV, and movies.  He starred in a Broadway show and recreated his Broadway role in the movie version.  He appeared in movies with Dustin Hoffman and Audrey Hepburn.  He also starred in a sixties sitcom that lasted for one season.  In his long career he played both heavy drama and light comedies.  Never a leading man, he was often cast as a friend of the star or a henchman of the villain.


    She was an actress known mainly for TV, although she was in a few movies as well.  She was in many TV shows from the sixties to the nineties, including being a regular on a sixties sitcom and a nineties drama series.


    Who are they?


  9. I had to work a bit to find this answer.  On "Leave It To Beaver", the father of Eddie Haskell was played by Lloyd Corrigan as George Haskell, George Petrie as George Haskell, and John Alvin as Frank Haskell.  They made rather infrequent appearances.  Since Eddie always referred to his father as "my old man", none of the viewers really knew what his first name was.

    Karl Swenson also played George Haskell. Your turn.

  10. I just re-watched the scene when Joan hears, on the radio, that Charlotte is back in production and that she has been replaced by Olivia. Then comes Joan's mad scene, worthy of grand opera; exit Mamacita; cut to Olivia's arrival, embrace by Betty, and Coke commercial! Brilliant, worthy of Eisenstein for sure.


    Earlier, Joan had said that Loretta Young and Barbara Stanwyck had been approached about replacing her (is that true?), but they were friends of Joan's and turned it down. Thank goodness! Those ladies' acting skills pale when compared to the great Olivia.


  11. of course he is somewhat out of his element...he is a non-career beltway politician and a shrewd businessman.


    we tried the one way for more than 200 years so maybe he can do better.


    for all I know, TheCid, your only reason for hating him is that he sided with the moral traditionalists in the GOP. :P

    There are many businessmen out there who are far shrewder than he is. Maybe one of them should be Prez.

  12. I knew Rob Petrie had several 'dads' on The Dick Van Dyke Show, ​but I thought they were all named 'Sam'....  Dads were Tom Tully, Will Wright and J. Pat O'Malley and IMDB all lists them as 'Sam"...am I on the wrong track?

    Yes you are. This was the father of a juvenile.

  13. "clickety clickety click, I can see it perkin' " -Humph Bogart, the desperate hours


    now here's whatz gonna happen tonite in georgia...nuthin'! :lol:


    this scrawny lookin' guy that the dems think is gonna pull an upset. he looks kinda like anthony weiner. :lol:


    this is all because there ain't no way that the dems can stay glued together under trump for even 2 years. so ALREADY they're jumping the gun.


    the desperate stupes. :lol:

    You don't want scrawny guys holding office. Fat blimps like Trump are far preferable.

  14. Believe most pro golfers would say the U.S. Open is the one they'd like to win the most. Arnold Palmer & Tom Watson never won the PGA Championship.

    I believe most European golfers would most want to win the British.

  15. Yes, and the movie that they were both in was "Good Morning, Miss Dove" from 1955.  You're up next, DGF. 

    On this popular sitcom, the father of one of the characters, during the course of the series, had two different first names, and was portrayed by three different actors. Characters' names? Actors' names?

  16. Thanks.  In the fifties, two real life brothers played the same character in a movie, but at different ages.  One was about four or five years older than the other..  Later, they each became semi-regular cast members in a popular sitcom, but the older brother left the sitcom several years before the series ended.  The younger one stayed until the end.  Can you name the brothers, the movie that they were both in, and the popular sitcom?    

    Stanley and Tiger Fafara? 'Leave it to Beaver"?

  17. It's always entertaining to watch a shifting leaderboard on the final day of a golf tournament, especially for a major championship.  The first time a foreign player won The Masters was Gary Player in 1961.  Of the 81 winners at Augusta, 22 have been foreign-born.  This year was the first time a foreign-born player won the Masters with a year ending in "7".  There were only 3 Americans who finished in the top 10 at Augusta this year.  Matt Kuchar and Kevin Chappell shot a 67 and 69, respectively in the 4th round to finish in a tie for 4th and a tie for 7th.  Ryan Moore, who shot a 74 on the final day, finished tied for 9th.  Kuchar and Moore were Ryder Cup winning teammates from last fall.


    As for the long-shafted putters, I think they're still allowed by the PGA.  However, anchoring them against your body while putting has been outlawed.


    Tiger Woods won't catch Jack Nicklaus' all-time record for major wins, but the guy's impact on prize money and sponsorships in golf can't be overstated.  When Woods won The Masters for the first time in 1997, he took home $486,000.  Four years later, when he won the tournament for the second time, he pocketed $1,008,000!  For his win this year, Sergio Garcia received $1,980,000.  Every other tournament on the PGA Tour has seen large increases in prize money over the years too. 

    A common argument is, which major has the most prestige. The PGA is the only one that clearly is not. The British is the oldest. The U.S. Open is the most difficult. The Masters has the legendary course and the green Jacket

  18. Yes Miles,that's it. I can remember reading in Life Magazine, back in the day, how David Merrick made a big deal about it and refused to let Richard Zanuck and 20th Century Fox off the hook.


    In the end Zanuck relented and paid a couple of million dollars to get an early release of late 1969--two years before the release date as the show was still running on Broadway.


    Fra and Miles can toss a coin on this one and hopefully one of them will post before the parade passes by--

    Name two legendary 1950s rock and roll pioneers who are still alive.
