Today Paul McCartney turned 70 years old and only a few months ago the only other surviving Beatle, Ringo Starr celebrated his 72nd birthday. Crazy isn’t it, who would have ever thought considered any of those guys in their 70′s. I think I’ll see if I can find the old Beatle movie “A Hard Day’s Night” on Netflex, or even the other hit movie back then “Help” both would be good give another watching soon.

My parents always watched The Tonight Show, although back in their day they had Johnny Carson as the host and these days we have Jay Leno, of which I enjoy watching each night while I am trying to fall asleep. One of my favorites is on Monday evenings when he always has “Headlines” which are always funny and entertaining.
The one thing that they do on the Tonight Show is the “Jay Walking” where is talks to people on the street and asks them simple questions that they never seem to know the correct answer to. For some reason it really bums me out to see the large amount of people that he talks to that are so completely ignorant and don’t seem to have a clue most of the time when he asks them these questions. I hate to think that the world has so many clueless people in it, but it certainly does have it’s fill.
One of my favorite new TV shows (well new to me anyways) is The Big Bang Theory. This is one of the few shows that actually entertains me in a variety of ways, unusual for a show that comes on one of the four local channels here. I had to let go of my cable for a few months and have been stuck watching a very limited selection of TV lately, sigh……
My best friend and I went totally ga ga over the book, The Outsiders, by S.E. Hinton, way back in junior high school. We completely devoured that book in a matter of days, and were most pleased to find that in 8th grade English class that it was one of the required readings, which needed a book report done on completion. We knew we had it made it the shade for that one, and we did.
It was most unfortunate that when the movie came out that we were not happy with it one bit, the actors that they had picked for the parts were all wrong and they left out so very much that was awesome in the book, but we watched it anyway, for what it was worth.
Hard to believe that Halloween will be here soon, I’m so sad to see the summer come to an end. Don’t get me wrong, the fall weather will be a welcomed change of pace from all of the extreme heat we have had to deal with this summer, but with the coming of fall means that winter is right around the corner and I just hate the winter. Besides the cold weather and the snow and everything that goes along with all of that, it also means that Christmas will be here before we know it. Funny how when we are kids it seemed that Christmas never got here quick enough and when we get older it seems to get here quicker and quicker with each coming year.
Anyways, this year I really want to buy a new Halloween costume so I have been looking around on the Internet to see whatÂ can come up with before all the good Sexy Halloween Costumes are sold out. Check out this cool looking Lady Gaga Born This Way Costume that I found at Halloweencostumes4u.com, not sure if I could pull it off though. I find it interesting that there are so many celebrity costumes out there this year. I see that they even have costumesÂ of the Jersey Shore cast, now who would have thought?
