R.I.P. Jim Lange

This morning I was so sad to hear that another TV personality has past away.

Jim Lange, the first host of the popular game show “The Dating Game,” has died at his home in Mill Valley, Calif. He was 81.

I loved watching him on the game shows he hosted:

The Dating Game
$100,000 Name That Tune
The $1,000,000 Chance of a Lifetime
Hollywood Connection
The New Newlywed Game
Bullseye

The theme song from The Dating Game is one of my favorites.

So, R.I.P. Jim Lange. I was a fan of your while I was growing up.

“Big kiss!” and “I can name that tune in 4 notes!”

Make it a great day.

So long, Sochi

So long, Sochi.

The 2014 Winter Olympics Ceremony closed with humor, hair, and a giant bear on Sunday, Feb. 23. With athletes participating from all corners of the globe, Sunday’s Closing Ceremony was a spectacle.

Here are some pictures from the closing ceremony.

I enjoyed watching the Winter Olympics from Sochi. I’m looking forward to watching the 2018 Winter Olympic Games will be held in Pyeongchang.

And before those games, the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio is just two years away.

R.I.P. Harold Ramis

Harold Ramis
(November 21, 1944 – February 24, 2014)

Harold Ramis has died. This man is responsible for the funniest laugh out loud, quote them forever, movie moments. 

Look at this list: 
Ghostbusters 
Groundhog Day 
Back to School 
Caddyshack 
National Lampoon’s Vacation 
Stripes 
Meatballs 
Animal House
Analyze This

Ghostbusters (1984)

Dr. Egon Spengler: I’m worried, Ray. It’s getting crowded in there and all my data points to something big on the horizon.

Winston Zeddemore: What do you mean, big?

Dr. Egon Spengler: Well, let’s say this Twinkie represents the normal amount of psychokinetic energy in the New York area. Based on this morning’s sample, it would be a Twinkie… thirty-five feet long, weighing approximately six hundred pounds.

Caddyshack (1980)

Carl Spackler: Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a mirac… It’s in the hole! It’s in the hole! It’s in the hole!
(Directed by)

Thank you for the laughs then, now and in the future.

The Best Peanut Butter Cookies

I remember this recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies from a cookbook that I had when I was in the 3rd or 4th grade.

I need to make them again.

Haunting Photos of the Abandoned 1984 Winter Olympics Facilities

PUBLISHED ON FEB 17TH, 2014 

In 1984, Sarajevo hosted the Winter Olympics. Just a decade later, the region was torn apart by a bitter years-long conflict, leading to widespread death and suffering. One not-so-familiar effect of this war was the toll it took on the Olympic infrastructure which had been built not that long ago. Today, these structures stand as a visual reminder of how quickly things can change.

While these photos offer a stunning glimpse of the decayed grounds from the 1984 Winter Olympics, it’s important to also remember how devastating the 1990s war was for the region. The Siege of Sarajevo was the longest siege of a capital city in the history of modern warfare. The sports complex built for the 1984 Winter Olympics was utilized as a graveyard due to high casualties. The story of the 1984 Olympics doesn’t have the happiest ending, but it’s definitely a story worth knowing.

As the article says, these pictures are stunning for what use to be compared to what it is now.
