It Is Time For a Bad Joke

Posted by Drew Z.:

From time to time we like to share bad, old or corny jokes on twitter. We thought we would share them here from time to time as well. Here is our first bad, old and or corny joke for this blog.

A woman went to the doctor's office where she was seen by one of the younger doctors. After about four minutes in the examination room, she burst out screaming as she ran down the hall. An older doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was, and she told him her story.

After listening, he had her sit down and relax in another room. The older doctor marched down the hallway back to where the young doctor was writing on his clipboard.

"What's the matter with you?" the older doctor demanded. "Mrs. Terry is
61 years old, has four grown children and seven grandchildren, and you told her she was pregnant?"

The younger doctor continued writing and without looking up said,
"Does she still have the hiccups?"

Connie's Cross-Stitch Blog Cross Stitch Poll - Silk Gauze

Posted by Drew Z.:
As we were surfing the net the other day we came across a very interesting cross stitch blog post with a poll attached. It was very interesting and in a very small way it mentioned abullrun. Anytime anybody mentions abullrun we are interested. The blog post is from Connie Barwick and is on About.com. Connie is great, she writes a lot about cross stitch and probably the best cross stitch writer there is (although I like that guy from abullrun a lot). You would be wise to follower her blog if you like cross stitch. If you are twitter fan you can follower her at www.twitter.com/crossstitcher.
Her blog post and poll is about silk gauze cross stitch. She recently purchased a 40 count silk gauze cross stitch kit from abullrun. It was the beautiful Silk Gauze Design Kit Siamese Cat. The photo is at the top of the page. She would like to know if anybody has stitched silk gauze before and what do you like and dislike about it. Take the poll question and help out. Click the web address below and you will be taken to Connie's blog post and don't forget to vote. Have a great day.

3D Reconstruction, of Flight 1549 Hudson River Ditching

Posted by Drew Z.:
From time to time we find some very cool videos on YouTube and we want to share them with you. About one year ago on January 15, 2009 US Airways Flight 1549 also known as the Miracle on the Hudson was successfully ditched in the Hudson River by captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger (a graduate from the Unites States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs) six minutes after departing from LaGuardia Airport. The plane had struck a flock of Canada Geese which resulted in an immediate and nearly complete loss of thrust from both engines. As you know all 155 passengers were saved.
If you would like to see the complete story click here and you will be taken to its Wikipedia page.
Janis Krums from Sarasota, Fla. posted the first photo on Twitter from his iPhone, if you would like to see that photo please click here.
Here is the cool YouTube video. It is a 3D reconstruction, of flight 1549 Hudson River ditching on Jan 15, 2009. The video goes for 7:22. The flight takes off 1:25 into the video and ends when the plane lands in the Hudson. The producers of this film did a great job of making it seem like you were there. We think you will find this video entertaining, educational, and sense of being part of history. Take a look and we think you will like it.

The Carol Burnett Show and abullrun

Posted by Drew Z.:

Today we wanted to share a moment that abullrun had the other day about watching an old tv show that brought back some great memories and a lot of laughs. The story goes like this, abullrun's dad brought himself over for some dinner and he brought over The Carol Burnett Show Stoppers Show on dvd for some entertainment after dinner. We had all watched The Carol Burnett Show and the out takes are now legendary and we all remember laughing very hard when Tim Conway would crack up Harvey Korman. If you don't remember the show or you were to young and have never heard of the show click here and you will be taken to the Carol Burnett show Wikipedia page. We were all excited to see it and the dvd did not disappoint.

The first part of the show has Carol, Tim, Harvey and Vicky showing and talking about some very funny clips. The clips are great and we are all laughing out loud. Some of us are getting close to rolling on the floor laughing. The key word in the last sentence is "close". Anyway it was a great family moment and the stories and the jokes that we told during the show (of course we had the show on pause) although probably very corny, and not as funny as Carol, Tim, Harvey, and Vicky, sure added to the fun.

We were just halfway through the show and we knew that we had just experienced one of those times that you will not forget. The second half of the show is not as funny as the first half. It included a little more singing and dancing and a tribute to the Bob Mackie, who was the costume designer for the show. Yes, they showed Carol wearing the drapes as a dress from their parody of Gone With the Wind. The singing and dancing was always part of the show but just not as funny as the comedy sketches were. So there was no rolling on the floor laughing but we were still telling corny jokes having a great time and just enjoying ourselves. A great time had by all.

The Carol Burnett Show Stoppers Show will make you laugh. The show was originally broadcast on CBS in 2001 and that is all you get on that dvd. There are no special features and without the commercials the show is about 40 minutes long. The skits are edited for just the big laugh and the cast does a lot of talking with the audience and among themselves. There are clips from this dvd on YouTube, you can buy the dvd we are sure at a lot of locations including Amazon, and we are sure you can rent this dvd out at several locations as well.

Here is the disclaimer, we are not getting paid for this post, we are not recommending or recommending this dvd, just sharing a family moment which brought a lot of laughs to us. We can all use a smile now and then. Have a great day.

Frankenstein, Thomas Edison, Mary Fuller, YouTube, and More

Posted by Drew Z.:

Every once in a while you come across an article or blog post that is so cool that you just want to share it. We came across such an article the other day. It is from our Twitter friend @andotherstuff (Cliff Aliperti). He sells collectibles online and you can read more about him at http://www.things-and-other-stuff.com/faq/history.html


This article is interesting in three ways. The first way is how a simple transaction and a simple e-mail lead to such great information being shared.


The second way is the information in it self. The story of early, and we do mean early, film star Mary Fuller is a great read and very informative. If you like the early days of the movies or you like history you will like this story.


The third way is technology. It is also a story of the technology at the start of the 20th century and the technology at the start of the 21st century. There is a clip from the famed 1910 Edison production of Frankenstein from YouTube. As we watch this clip of Frankenstein on an iPhone we could not help wonder what Thomas Edison or Mary Fuller would be thinking if they could see how 100 years later we were still watching their Frankenstein.


Please take a look at this great article at


http://www.inherited-values.com/2010/01/history-through-sales-trading-card-of-early-film-star-mary-fuller/


And make sure you watch the YouTube clip of Frankenstein it only goes for 12 minutes and it will be well worth it.

Have a great day.
