"In Search Of" was MUST SEE TV for me as a child. Mr Nimoy's voice was so captivating, even more so at times than the conspiracy subject matter being discussed. Of course, later on I'd find out how wonderful he was as Spock. His talent is with us forever to be enjoyed at nearly the drop of a hat, just like how it should be in the future...

3. Divine Discontent! rpannier! Nice to see you both.
:yourock: :grouphug: :fistbump: :pals:

I had totally given up on DU2. Did the Enterprise's science officer do us a solid before Scotty beamed him up one last time? (RIP)

Hope everyone is well.

Boston is buried, but I am trucking along just fine.

Also, glad you made it through this winter. Boston Strong. Indeed. :headbang:

6. Nimoy's final tweet:

Enjoy the garden.





Nimoy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nimoy is a surname, and may refer to:

Leonard Nimoy (19312015), actor, director, and musician best known for playing Spock in Star Trek
Jeff Nimoy, Emmy Award-winning voice actor and writer, (second cousin, once removed, of Leonard Nimoy)
Adam Nimoy, television director (son of Leonard Nimoy)
Sandi Nimoy (19272011), American actor
Susan Nimoy, American actor


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nimoy





Not so sweet as his final tweet: he left his first wife, Sandra, on her 56th birthday. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandra_Zober

On the plus side, he seemed very happy with his second wife, Susan Bay. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susan_Bay







He was born in the West End of Boston, an area that has been changed drastically since the 1920s by "urban renewal," though the world renown Msss. General Hospital (in various stages of sprawl) has been a constant in that neighborhood long before Nimoy was born..

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonard_Nimoy

http://www.cityofboston.gov/neighborhoods/westend.asp A bunch of relatively soul-less 1950s-1970s architecture there now, instead of a tightly-knit neighborhood.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_End,_Boston

WGBH, Boston's branch of PBS, did a show with Nimoy showing folks around "his" Boston, but I never saw it, except for the trailer.
