Record Players, a blast from the past. In my opinion the record player reached its zenith, possible in the 1960’s with the popularity, and the help of  the British invasion, Motown, and the rise of the great folk artist like Bob Dylan, and Joan Baez.






Zenith color TV’s, the first color TV we ever had in our house was a Zenith color TV; I remember the exact day we got this TV, even though it was 1968 almost 50 years ago. I would say that is pretty amazing to have that recollection. The only reason I remember use getting this TV there was a very significant live TV announcement make by the President of the United States Lyndon  Johnson. The day this 25 inch color TV arrived at our apartment in Sunnyvale California was the same evening Johnson made the announcement he will not seek, or will not accept another term as president of the United States.


The Day was March 31, 1968; This was amazing I got a change to see the President in color, and all the shows I’ve watched in black, and white now in color it was major cool. Batman TV show, Ultraman, Speed Racer, this really cool show called Rowan & Martins Laugh-In, and lots more. I don’t remember seeing it in the store, help picking it out or nothing, it was just there in the living room one day. This picture was close to the one we had. It’s amazing how drab these TV’s looked back then.

Who owns Zenith  now, that would be LG Electronics

The world seemed real, when it was in color, even the news when it showed the worst of the worst. I don’t see Zenith TV’s out there on the market anymore, at Walmart or any retail stores, but Zenith Electronics is still a very big corporation. Zeniths parent company of LG Electronics headquartered in South Korea. The screen size was similar, and the legs were like this one. This TV traveled around a lot over the years after we moved from California. I’m not sure when it departed, but it had maybe a 10 year run in our household.

Al Capone was the undisputed king of the Chicago underworld, from the early 1920’s, till he was marched off to prison for income tax invasion in 1931; Unfortunately there is no know recording of Big Al speaking, as with many famous people of that era, but all we have is many photos, since Scarface was not camera shy. The bizarre thing for me about Al was. When he was at the zenith of his power in the mid 1920’s; He was only in his mid twenties, and when he was released from prison in 1939; Al Capone was only 40 years old , and dying just a week after his 48th birthday in 1947

Al Capone assumed command of the south side gang in 1925

The Chevy Camaro in my opion is the best of all sports car, that is in an affordable range. I currently own a Camaro convertible, and  have driven the Dodge Charger, and Challenger which are very good on the affordability of sports cars, as well as the Ford Mustang. When I test drove my Camaro in June of 2015, after driving all the others. I said this is the car for me.

The Chevy Camaro went on sale first in 1966

When are the 2017 Camaros coming out. When I saw the 2016 Camaro style I was not really moved by it, but at the end of the year when the 2017 comes out. This car is noticeably different in many ways. Where the best dealerships in WV to buy a Camaro. Moses auto has purchased the C&O Motor Co, which is good for Moses because they were not Chevrolet dealers before. When I’m ready to trade my 2015 in I can stick with Moses who treated me very well, and purchase a new model.

The Chevy Camaro second generation began in 1970 to 1981

The 5th generation began in 2009, and is the body style that is most familiar today , with the 6th generation out in 2016, with some slight body changes, but the Camaro, will be my car of choice for years to come unless something else comes out that can top with perfect vehicle.




who was the first super bowl mvp


What Network is televising the Super Bowl. You will find the big game on CBS this year. With Phil Simms, and Jim Nantz. I like these guys. They have been together for years calling games. Phil Simms the color, and Nantz one of the best at play by play.

How much is a 30 second ad the the Super Bowl, it’s 5 million dollars. The reason the Super Bowl is the biggest of all sports championships. It’s one game, no best of 5, or 7; just playoff rounds to get there.

Where is the Super Bowl played this year, In Santa Clara,CA at Levi’s Stadium. The home of the San Francisco 49ers. Which is a ball field that’s been around only a few years, and the first time the big game will be played there. I lived in Sunnyvale as a kid in the late 60’s which is just around the corner.

Who were the first Super Bowl teams. The Green Bay Packers, and The Kansas City Chiefs. This is when both teams were in totally separate leagues. The Packers in the NFL, which was the original league, and KC in the new AFL, that just been around for 6 years.

When did the the NFL and AFL merge. The both leagues became one officially in 1970; with The Baltimore Colts winning the first Super Bowl in the post merger era. We had the Baltimore Colts defeating the Dallas Cowboys 16 to 13


Who performed the first Super Bowl National Anaheim. University of Arizona, University of Michigan Marching Bands & UCLA choir.

New York has by far the most historic office building ever constructed. My favorite of all the buildings is the Metropolitan Life Insurance building that opened in 1909, and was the tallest building in the world until the Woolworth bldg opened in 1913; Many of the old historic buildings have been converted to very expensive apartments.

The Daredevil is my favorite of all the Marvel comics, because he didn’t have any Superman like powers, and he was a New York City super hero, we can see the Manhattan back drops. This is an early Marvel Stan Lee creation debuting in 1964
