Nostalgia and Something New

So, yesterday's post brought up the memory of the "Great Space Coaster" which I had totally forgotten. In fact, before yesterday, I would have sworn up and down that I had never even HEARD of the "Great Space Coaster" much less seen it. But then, I went to YouTube and watched a video of the opening credits and found myself unconsciously singing along. I KNEW THE WORDS!!! So, I guess I AM familiar with it. I had just forgotten about it. How I miss those wonderful "Sesame Street," "Electric Company," "3-2-1 Contact," Sid and Marty Kroft days!!! I think the creator of "Family Guy" must be my age because we have all of the same cultural references. In fact, he even had a reference to the "Great Space Coaster." So, there you go.

In other news...

I am excited to announce that my friend Gary and I are launching a new blog together. We have been having great discussions lately about faith and spirituality and decided to make our "conversations" public. The format of the blog involves me writing Gary a "letter" and him responding. We'll be reading books together and discussing a variety of topics. Our first book will be MERE CHRISTIANITY by C.S. Lewis. I hope you will all stop by if you are so inclined.

The blog is called THROUGH THE WARDROBE. (but the link uses the spelling of "thru")

I am really looking forward to reading your new blog. I came by to look at the religious books you recommended a week or so ago.

Thank you Purl. I'm really looking forward to this new blog. It will be the fourth blog that I author but I think it will give me some much-needed self-expression. Feel free to join in on any of the reads we will be doing!

Oh, cool! I'll have to pop over. I love, love, love Mere Christianity - it's probably due for a reread, soon.

Hi Bookfool! Feel free to join us in reading MERE CHRISTIANITY if you want. Gary and I will be covering lots of Christian literature, movies, articles, etc. Everyone is invited to participate!
