Hey Rev... I used to try to watch the Beav, but he got in SO much trouble that I found it concomfortable to watch! LOL Yeah I was a weenie. Oct. 4 is also the day Janis Joplin died in 1970. Here's somethin' I posted last year about that:

there's a great story about Sputnik in the newest Newsweek. Interesting stuff that I hadn't seen before.

janet--
1970-71 was a rough year for me, my senior year of high school: janis died, jim morrison died, jimi hendrix died, duance allman died, my best buddy died.
the death of janis kicked it off, and it ended a year later when duane died.
i always think about those guys, but prefer to yak about the beav.

thanks for reading, thanks for commenting, and thanks for the link. i have a big stack of janis vinyl, don't ya know.
