Happy Birthday, Betty White

January 17 was Betty White's birthday, and she is 93, and still continuing a long and storied acting career which includes her '70s run on The Mary Tyler Moore Show.  But, for the '80s, she will be long remembered for her role as Rose in the '80s classic The Goldern Girls. I found this video on Youtbe featuring clips of her best Golden Girls moments. 
Happy Birthday, Betty!

Back to the Future to 2015


Back in 1989, the sequel to the classic '80s flick Back to the Future offered a vision of what 2015 was supposed to be like. They got a few things right, missed some things, and a lot of things wrong.  Here's a report on the scorecard.
Alas, contrary to the film, there are still roads, there are no flying cars, and Jaws ceased making sequels long ago.
On the other hand, theyre working on a hoverboard prototype.
And, cell phones and the internet are two things completely missed by the film.
Its still an entertaining '80s vision of the future, and anything '80s is always fun!
Here's another take on the same 2015 predictions.
