My above post was intended to show that in a few years, what is considered entertainment now will be just about as silly as those programs from the 60s and 70s.
And in 30 or 40 years, who will they get to do the old folks commercials? The Fonz, Trapper John, 6 million Dollar man and Pat Boone won't likely be walking to show us One Reverse mortgages, Walk-in-bath tubs, or Bionic Hearng aids.
Maybe they can get a new batch of lawyers that want you to sue because you have some newly named old disease from a lifetime of working, or had the wrong kind of vaginal mesh or hip replacement. GEEZ.
You know though AW if a child sits down and watches Andy Griffith he or she might learn a life lesson that some parents just don't teach. Unfortunately, programs that I've noticed since the 1990s haven't been that great. My partner abhors shows that Andy Griffith starred a role in. But I have a difference in opinion. Programming is getting worse and worse. I don't like blood and gore and the closest to vampirism I like is the first four seasons of Dark Shadows and that's because of Jonathon Frid's role as Barnabas. Personally, MacGyver has been my all time favorite, of course, minus all the mushy love scenes. As my dad says,"That stuff's not fit for dog." LOL. I agree.

If you have not seen it, Google Andy Griffieth's "What it was, was football". That is his standup comedy routine that propelled his career. Most funny. As far as old shows, I just don't know how many times Matt Dillon can get shot or Joe Cartwright can fall in love. I suppose I do not have any all time favorites, just a few I refuse to watch and the few is steadily increasing.

I once was wondering what ever happened to Lamont Sanford and looked it up and he became a preacher. I think Aunt Ester arguing with Fred made that show. I especially liked the show where she wanted to hold the Wednesday night prayer group at the junk yard. LOL

Hi all. We have a channel here in Western KY called "Retro TV". It has a lot of those old shows: Emergency, Adam-12, Partridge Family, All in the Family, Maude, Gidget, and more more more. I got peed off about two years ago and dumped satellite tv and since then have only used rabbit ears. Retro TV is one of the free local channels. We actually pick up several local channels. If I would put up an outdoor antena we would pick up a lot more. I do like those old shows.

I like the line where the guy slapped him on the back and says "here buddy, have a drank". He says, "why thank you, I thank I will have another big orange" LOL

Getting this topic back on track, birds are guided by Earth's electromagnetic field and recent seismic activity in the New Madrid fault line has upset the balance. It happens about every 200 years in this area. Look up the quakes of 1811-1812 and you will hear the same accounts recorded from that era. A quake that size now would devastate surrounding regions, back then it was sparsely populated and damage was minimal.

Yeah. "have a drank." I loved that about Andy and he seemed like a decent human being. Upon his passing this year, I told my partner that Andy Griffith seemed like a wonderful Gentleman and portrayed the role of Andy as down to earth-my children love the show- he pipes up that it was about time for him to go anyway! You know, the audacity to be that flippant and hateful. I almost said, buddy you're lucky i love you because that attitude shore stinks.

Rawhide was probably one of Clint Eastwood's first. He played the role of Rowdy Yates, the ramrod. Eric Fleming was the trail boss, Gil Favor. "Head em up, Move em out".

Johnny Yuma was "The Rebel".. I think that was Nick Adams. It was only on for a couple seasons.

Lee Majors early role was as the half brother Heath Barkley in the Big Valley.

Ward Bond was the Wagon Master on Wagon Train. Probably his only lead role even though he appeared in more westerns than anyone, having been in most all of John Wayne's westerns plus many more.

If the birds all dropped at once that is definetly something else because even if it was starvation or chemicals they would die seperatly not all at once. weird
