Big John, Little John (TV show)

I’m probably the only one here who remembers the TV show, Big John, Little John. Weird to see it on YouTube.

Now if I could only remember the name of the show about a dune buggy that can fly. Anyone remember that show? That’s another one I’ve had memories of for 30 years that no one else can remember. Does anyone remember a cartoon called the Barbapapas? (My spelling might not be correct.) TV memories are strange.

The 6 Truths Of Life

  1. You cannot touch all your teeth with your tongue.
  2. All idiots, after reading the first truth, will try it.
  3. The first truth is a lie.
  4. You’re smiling now because you’re an idiot.
  5. You soon will forward this to another idiot.
  6. There’s still a stupid smile on your face.

I’d change #5 slightly:

You soon will forward this to another idiot or blog about it.

Contribute To CBC Radio’s ‘Spark’

CBC logoI might be on CBC Radio‘s ‘Spark‘ program next week because of a comment I posted at their blog-like site concerning How-to videos. The show’s producer emailed me, asking me to leave an audio recording of my comment:

We’d love to use your voice on the show. I’d need this in the next day or so to include it on next week’s episode. Oh yes, and make sure to include your name for the credits.

I love the CBC.

What’s The Going Rate For Teeth?

caitlyn's missing tooth 2007From CNN, Tooth Fairy economics ain’t nickel-and-dime:

According to a 2006 survey of 150 mothers conducted by eBeanstalk.com, an online toy store, the Tooth Fairy is giving an average of $2.64, with 60 percent of respondents reporting that they give less than $3 per tooth.

Three bucks?! 30 years ago I was ecstatic to get a quarter. I wouldn’t have guessed that the Tooth Fairy got so generous over the years, although I must admit: the children in our household receive a dollar for their teeth.
