Knock, knock.
Who’s there?
Weasel who?
Weasel while you work.
Among Kentucky Derby champions, what was unique about Canonero II, the 1971 upset winner?

He was the only foreign-based horse to win the Run for the Roses. He was from Venezuela.
“Good night, and good luck.”

Possibly the most famous sign-off in TV history, this phrase was coined by 1950s CBS News personality Edward R. Murrow. He got his start on radio during World War II, broadcasting from the rooftops of London buildings during the German blitz. Murrow used the line in an earnest attempt to reach out to the audience and provide comfort. He kept the line after the war and when he moved to TV.
Lyle Wagggoner was fired from The Carol Burnett Show for posing nude in Playgirl magazine.

I wondered what happened to Waggonner !
I had figured that he left because either
A) He was SO HANDSOME no one could stand it
B) He left to be on the Bionic Woman show

for the fascinating tidbits and
for allowing me to contribute !

I BELIEVE what you post but a lot of the time
I am so intrigued that I want to learn MORE.
Hopefully I am sharing and adding points
of interest and NOT BABBLING BORINGLY !

Have a Super Sunday !
