Here's wishing you a great holiday season, and may you find peace, happiness and good fortune in 2014 and beyond!


  1. Thanks, Brian, and the same to you. Some of the definite highlights of the old year 2013: every time you posted a new article. So thanks for that too!

    1. Thanks Bill! Have yourself a wonderful New Year's!

  2. You can't go wrong with a Santa Claus movie with Martians and starring Pia Zadora! (It really is a stinker, though.) Happy holidays to you and your family!

    1. Hi Rick! Yeah, Santa Claus Conquers is pretty weak, even for Saturday kiddie matinee stuff. I had forgotten (or never knew in the first place) that Pia Zadora was in this. Believe it or not, Pia and I are neighbors (kind of). She's been in the papers recently (unfortunately not in a good way), and the general vicinity of her neighborhood is close to where I live.

      Have a great New Year's!
