Pictures That Changed America

I’m watched the TV show,  “The 80’s: The Decade That Name Us” on the National Geographic Channel.

As I was watching it,  they started talking about Calvin Klien and his underwear.

Then this picture popped up on my TV screen.


My jaw dropped down on my desk.

Tom Hintnaus is also known as the first model in the underwear advertising campaign of designer Calvin Klein. The photograph by Bruce Weber of a well-muscled young man in white briefs, leaning against a thickly white-washed chimney on Santorini Island in Greece, became the iconic image of “male as sex object” in the 1980s. American Photographer magazine named the photo as one of “10 Pictures That Changed America.” (From

And I have to agree, this was a picture that changed America!

The Cross in the Woods

Places in Michigan.

I was reading a list about Michigan and the was on the list.

The Cross in the Woods Catholic shrine in Indian River has a 31-foot high crucifix, the largest one in the world.


I have been to Indian River a couple if times. The Cross is so beautiful. When your in the grounds,  it’s so peaceful. If you ever get the chance, you really need to visit The Cross in the Woods Catholic shrine in Indian River.

Kip Addotta

Do you remember?

Kip Addotta… I remember watching him on Make Me Laugh.


Kip Addotta (born 1944) is an American comedian notable for often being featured on The Tonight Show and the syndicated show Make Me Laugh. He was also featured on The Dr. Demento Show for his novelty music, the biggest hits of which are “Wet Dream” and “Life in the Slaw Lane,” a series of fish puns and vegetable puns that, together, form a storyline. He also released a parody of “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” titled “I Saw Daddy Kissing Santa Claus.” Addotta also hosted the adult game show Everything Goes on the Playboy Channel, and has made a number of film and TV appearances, including on the Larry Sanders Show.

Reflections of My Life

Heard this song the other day and I’ve must have watched the video (three different versions/time periods.)

Reflections of My Life
by Marmalade

The changing of sunlight to moonlight
Reflections of my life
Oh how they fill my eyes

[Repeat: x 2]
The greetings of people in trouble
Reflections of my life
Oh how they fill my eyes

Oh my sorrows
Sad tomorrows
Take me back to my own home

[Chorus: x 2]
Oh my crying (Oh my crying)
Feel I’m dying, dying
Take me back
to my own home

The changing of sunlight to moonlight
Reflections of my life
Oh how they fill my eyes

I’m changing, arranging,
I’m changing,
I’m changing everything
Everything around me

The changing of sunlight to moonlight
Reflections of my life
Oh how they fill my eyes

The world is
a bad place
A bad place
A terrible place to live
Oh but I don’t want to die …

[Chorus: x 2]
