DU ladies: Remember this guy?



About those ads for home security systems . . .

It was actually about the stewardesses of the '60's. That was back when it was glamorous and fun. The more manageable 707 instead of the huge 747; the uniforms, the fancy meal service; the travel -- I wanted to be a stewardess. I am lucky I was too short to qualify; by the time I would have finished school and been ready to start applying to the airlines, it was already going downhill. I would have been very disappointed. But it must have been wonderful back then.

Hard to say why the restaurant didn't last. I hear restaurants have the highest failure rate of any type of business.

OK. which one of you has been in my building?

There is a stiletto-heel shoe that's been riding up and down the elevator for two days now. I don't even want to know how it got there!

"Tudors" is on BBCA!

Always wanted to see it; I wonder how long it's been on there and I didn't run across it.
