  1. 50 years ago today, the crew of Apollo 17 took this photo of our planet. This picture is worth an infinite number of words.
  2. Han and Leia stopped trying to surprise Luke on Christmas. He always sensed their presents.
  3. James Dean hated Christmas. He didn't want to be like everyone else with their caroling and decorations and gift-giving..... He was a rebel without a Claus.
  4. Kirstie Alley will always be Lt. Saavik to me. She totally nailed the role in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.
  5. Kirstie Alley, who won an Emmy for her role on “Cheers” and starred in films including “Look Who’s Talking,” died Monday. She was 71. Alley died of cancer that was only recently discovered, her children True and Lillie Parker said in a post on Twitter. Alley’s manager Donovan Daughtry confirmed the death in an email to The Associated Press. “As iconic as she was on screen, she was an even more amazing mother and grandmother,” her children’s statement said. She starred opposite Ted Danson as Rebecca Howe on “Cheers,” the beloved NBC sitcom about a Boston bar, from 1987 to 1993. She joined the show at the height of its popularity after the departure of original star Shelley Long. Alley would win an Emmy for best lead actress in a comedy series for the role in 1991.
  6. Watching the Giants-Commanders highlights. Near the end of regulation, a Giants receiver is juking his way towards the end zone, and a Commanders defensive back doesn’t even bother to try to tackle him. He just sticks out his shoulder and arm in a wimpy attempt to ram him. I see this crap every week. CRAP, I tell ya…..
  7. Florida QB Jalen Kitna, son of former NFL QB Jon Kitna, was arrested for child porn.
  8. Packers played their hearts out in a losing effort to Philly. Too bad that their defense SUCKS. I needed a calculator to count all the missed tackles.
  9. Friends don't let friends go near Twitter.
  10. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button First time I’ve watched it from start to finish. I had seen a few parts here and there and some of the ending, but after seeing the entire film, I was blown away. Amazing film.
  11. I will always remember listening to a classic rock station one particular day. The DJ was taking live requests on the air. No lie.....the DJ took a call from some dim-sounding guy who only said, "Hey, could you play that song where he's singing to that girl...." There was a pause....(I imagined the DJ doing a huge facepalm)......and then the DJ replied, "Who is 'he' ? What girl? What are you talking about?" The caller couldn't provide any more information....
  12. PLEASE, disconnect from Twitter. Your life will be much better if you do. Seriously, free yourself from that pestilence. There are far better things in life to do.
  13. That's probably the joke that was rattling around in my head when I wrote my weak version of it.
  14. My wife and I decided to not have any kids. We're dropping them off at their adoptive parents' home this afternoon.
  15. It’s up to you to stop her. Lay down the Law with her, and don’t be meek about it.
  16. They spent all their good mojo on the hated Cowboys. They played like they were ready for their mini-bye.
  17. Darrell Brooks will spend life in prison six times over for the death and injuries he caused in the 2021 Waukesha Christmas Parade attack. Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Jennifer Dorow on Wednesday formally sentenced Brooks to consecutive life sentences for first-degree intentional homicide, with no chance of parole, in the deaths of Tamara Durand, William Hospel, Jane Kulich, Leanna Owen, Jackson Sparks and Virginia Sorenson. She also sentenced Brooks to 17 1/2 years for each of the 61 counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety, or a total of 762 years of initial confinement and 305 years of extended supervision; and 25 years each for the six hit-and-run counts running concurrent to the reckless endangerment charges. In all, beyond his life sentences, he was sentenced to more than 1,200 years, including extended supervision. [Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel]
  18. Pshaw....give everyone 10 sq. ft. to stand, and everyone would easily fit in Connecticut.
  19. -- Herschel Walker I'm breathin' in good emissions It's giving me excitations (Oom bop bop) I'm breathin' in good emissions (Good emissions, oom bop bop) It's giving me excitations (Excitations, oom bop bop) Good, good, good, good emissions (Oom bop bop) It's giving me excitations (Excitations, oom bop bop) Good, good, good, good emissions (Oom bop bop) It's giving me excitations (Excitations)
  20. Just a simple thing like cancelling my newspaper subscription. How many times do I have to say "NO"?
  21. I fully expected Dallas to win. So did all the Packer fans and sportswriters. So did pretty much everyone else. How much do you want for CeeDee Lamb?
