 Remembering Back When:


Eva Pasco

As we continue to celebrate summer, flashback time once again as I offer another 60s reflection from friend and author, Eva Pasco.  The backdrop of this true childhood incident I'm about to relate occured somewhere in-between the late fifties and 1960.  During those wonder years of innocence, my steady TV diet consisted of the black and white frenetic antics of  Buffalo Bob Smith and his marionettes: freckle-faced Howdy Doody, whimsical Flub-a-Dub,  ear-wiggling Dilly Dally, bushy-browed Mayor Phineas T. Bluster, and the pantomiming Clarabell." Enjoy "Judy, Judy, Judy."  

You are invited to pick up Eva's new novel " An Enlightening Quiche."

Everybody is interested in saving money especially we seniors. I received a link from Linda Kowalski/Community Outreach you may want to check out. Many of these savings are not advertised and you may not know anything about them. Here is the link:



 Americans typically refer to this time of year as “fall,” while the British use the word “autumn.” Both terms date back to the 16th century but before that it was called “harvest.

Those who live closest to the equator, which is the center of the planet, never experience the season of autumn.

The pumpkin was first named by the Greeks. They called this edible orange item “pepon,” which means “large melon.”

 Men and women experience high levels of testosterone during the fall. This makes sense because more babies are conceived during the fall and winter.

Spotlight Artist

The RascalsThe Rascals are our Spotlight Artist for the month.  The Rascals, along with the Righteous Brothers, Mitch Ryder, and precious few others, were the pinnacle of '60s blue-eyed soul. The Rascals' talents, however, would have to rate above their rivals, if for nothing else than the simple fact that they, unlike many other blue-eyed soulsters, penned much of their own material. They also proved more adept at changing with the fast-moving times, drawing much of their inspiration from British Invasion bands, psychedelic rock, gospel, and even a bit of jazz and Latin music.
