Autographs and pics

Some of my collection of autographs. Sorry for terrible scan quality! As a child and teenager I collected them, and am now thinking I would like to reprise this hobby.  UPDATE!!RICHARD KLINE!!  Not exactly an autograph, but it MORE than counts. I wrote to Richard Kline – Larry Dallas from Three’s Company – because he’s in a big new show asking for an interview for my blog and got such a nice surprise to come home to this reply today. Standby for a celeb interview on my blog!!!  “Daley” Thompson…

Agatha Christie’s Birthday 15 September

Agatha Christie’s Birthday 15 September

RIP John Ritter 1948 – 11 Sept 2003

RIP John Ritter 1948 – 11 Sept 2003

Something strange has happened to me. I’ve become a fan of someone 10 years after he passed away. I’m a stargazer. I love my celebrities. But this one’s different. In the past I’ve always become a fan of a person in their lifetime. I’m talking about JOHN RITTER. I always LIKED John Ritter. But to be honest, I didn’t know that much about him, I’d seen him in Problem Child and I remembered that he’d been in Three’s Company. And I was sad when I heard he died, specially since…

Interview with authors Jassy McKenzi and Joanne Richards

My friend Lornette Joseph and I were fortunate to attend a Bloggers get together held at Skoobs in Monte Casino recently.  We are bloggers (Check out Lornette’s fantastic Madiba related post Forever A Man of the Times here) and as if the thrill of attending such an event in such an eclectic venue wasn’t enough, we were fortunate in that I was selected as one of the winners to interview authors Jassy McKenzie and Jo- Anne Richards! Jassy Mackenzie is from a family where books weren’t just more important than television; they were so important that television was banned from the house….
