Let's wrap up at Tennessee Ernie Ford's place for yodeling, some honky tonk country music (the kind I like) and, finally, a prayer before beginning to eat. Remember, Thanksgiving is about giving thanks - if nothing else, thanks that things aren't worse than they are.

Did you enjoy Thursday night's episode of The Office? if so, or if you missed it, you might want to check out the "producer's cut" of the November 20th episode. From the press release: On Tuesday, November 25th, users can log onto NBC.com to stream the expanded episode, which will include additional scenes and extra footage not shown in the broadcast version. Fans will be able to stream both the broadcast version and the web-only, expanded version on NBC.com. The announcement was made today by Vivi Zigler, President, NBC Universal Digital Entertainment. "What fan of 'The Office' wouldn't want to see more," said Zigler. "There is such great material with 'The Office' and it doesn't always fit into the TV show.

In a bit of a shock, Bill Maher's Religulous - the highest-grossing documentary film of the year - was not on the list of 15 semi-finalists for the Oscar in that category. Guess God wasn't amused...
Bob Huggins writes: "I just read Kevin Butler’s blog entry on Fred Scott and his involvement with Captain Video and His Video Rangers. It’s ironic, but Alpha Video is releasing four episodes from the series next Tuesday. To my knowledge, it’s the first widely available commercial release of this series, though I don’t know if Mr. Scott appears in any of the episodes on this DVD. Amazon carries it. And a full description of the release can be found at the Oldies.com site."
to the product description I just read: Direct from the year 2254,
Captain Video roared onto America's TV screens fighting evil with amazing
futuristic weaponry and technology. Aided by the Video Ranger, his teenage
sidekick, and an army of Video Rangers around the globe, Captain Video
rocketed around the galaxy protecting the weak and defenseless from bizarre
cosmic villains, usually led by his nemesis, Dr. Pauli.
Ken Holet asks, "I found your (Christmas Specials) page, which is the first time I've found some info about two Christmas specials that I remember as a kid. I thought they had aired in the late 50's or early 60's. I saw that The Spirit of Christmas is available on DVD; is The Night Before Christmas also?"
I can still vividly remember that version of Twas The Night Before Christmas which was produced by Bell Systems, the old telephone monopoly, starring the Mabel Beaton marionettes. I could be totally confused but I recall it being shown at school when I was a wee lad. Anyway, here's the film thanks to You Tube:
Whatever happened to that Dallas big screen movie starring John Travolta? Weren't they actually filming at one point?
