As you may be ale to tell by some of my posts. I am curious about the Stars Dying in Three’s. Is it true, do they really die in three’s? Celebrities die every day — there’s no pattern. But it does freak me out when three celebrities do die in a row.
Check out this post that I saw on Facebook. I was surprised on how old some of these stars are. And there were one or two that I thought had already pasted away.
Some of the actors and actresses on this list are my favorites. It will be a sad day when they do pass away.

Well, crap… on Tuesday, January 26, Abe Vigoda, Det. Fish on TV’s ‘Barney Miller,’ Died at 94.
I remember watching him on ‘Barney Miller.’ R.I.P. Abe Vigoda.
This is the second time that I posted about an entertainer and the pass away a couple of days later.

For the past couple of weeks, I have been on a mission to find old movies that I saw when I was younger. One of the movies that I have been looking for is “The Final Countdown” (1980). One of the stars of the movie was James Farentino, who on January 24, 2012, died of heart failure following a long illness. It’s so weird that I have been thinking about that movie and one of it’s stars passes away.
The Final Countdown is a 1980 science fiction film about a modern aircraft carrier that travels through time to just before the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor. It was directed by Don Taylor, and stars Kirk Douglas, Martin Sheen, James Farentino, Katharine Ross and Charles Durning. (From wikipedia.com)

I also should mention the passing of Joe Paterno, former head coach of Penn State. Regardless of the events that happened at the end of his coaching career, he was a great college football coach and should be remember for what he did.

So with the resents deaths of Etta James, Joe Paterno and James Farentino, that is three famous people who have past away.
