Norm!

Cheers (1982-1983) Regular customers and employees share there lives over drinks and work. Everybody knows your name! Full cast & crew at IMDB I’m currently re-watching Season 1 of Cheers and, honestly, this was one of the funniest shows to come out of the 80’s! Of course, now that I am older, the jokes, puns and innuendos make so much more sense that when I … Continue reading Norm!

But, this one was a bit more difficult than others … Continue reading 14th Birthday

The costumes where “futuristic” – you know, women dressed in flowing robes, polyester body suits and sometimes … Continue reading Buck Rogers

Home Computers

Commodore 64 (VIC-20) A childhood friend of mine had a Commodore! A HOME COMPUTER! WHOA! It was awesome! I remember staying up late on weekends playing Global Thermal Nuclear War (kinda boring), Star Trek (awesome!), States & Capitals, Chess, Asteroids and Centipede. Yeah, the graphics were a bit clunky and not much better than the Atari 2600. But, it was a COMPUTER! It would be … Continue reading Home Computers

CHiPs

CHiPs action, crime drama ran from 1977-1983. Starring Larry Wilcox, Eric Estrada and Robert Pine. A NBC production. I remember my brother, Kraig, just had to watch this show every week! I think he looked up to Eric Estrada’s character as a role-model; somewhat rough around the edges. But, still a good guy! Although the show was classified as a drama, there was always some … Continue reading CHiPs
