Sunday Support Group: Super Bowl Self-Pity

Well, boo-hoo. My buddy Jerry is having a Super Bowl party tonight, and lots of my friends will be there. Darlynn is doing the cooking, and others are bringing desserts and hors d'oeuvre s, which means there will be tasty food aplenty. I bet it's going to be a good time. It was last year. And I can't go.

A Goodbye

One of these was Michou who was a very eccentric showman who owned a cabaret that put on shows featuring transvestites. (La Cage aux Folles was based on this) He only drank champagne and only wore blue and was said to be a very kind man. He died recently-he was in his 80’s-and was buried in the small local St Vincent Cemetery in Montmartre where many locals are also buried. I...

No One Knows Who Took These Superb Hand-Colored Albumen Prints Of Japan In The 1890s

In the 1850s Japan permitted Western barbarians to trade in its ports for the first time in an age.
