Looked at the review....and don't disagree with some of the observations....but I'd still bet you'd be entertained. Looks great....sounds good. Grab some popcorn and a favorite beverage. Fire up the big screen...turn up the volume...and enjoy. I'm betting you'll have fun. But then again I'm fairly easily amused.


Anyone see Altered Carbon on Netflix?  Nice combination of Mystery and Science-Fiction.

It was fun...ready for another season already. Doctor Smith is a darker version and most effective in giving me the creeps.

Only see the digests here at the front checkouts at grocery stores like Foodland and Safeway.

Lots of opportunities and openings in retail.....so probably there is an even better job coming your way soon. If you enjoy retail work (and it isn't for everyone for sure) you'll find the right spot. I was in retail for the same company for thirty-five years and enjoyed my job, but retirement is even better. :coolsmiley:

gulp....starting to sound a bit crazy like the former queen. Nah....couldn't be.

Okay...here is one of my favorite Deja Vu combos. Give good old Archie 10 years to rethink it and he opts for both Veronica and Betty :)

And same gag....different books and characters. Sometimes these are almost like those spot the difference puzzles.

All About Archie / Deja Vu

One of my pleasures in collecting Archie Comics is finding those I call the Deja Vu issues. It is a fairly usual practice for Archie Comics to use covers from the Golden Age to repeat in the Silver Age. Usually the same gag and cast with some updates in the look. I think the theory was that the average enthusiasm for comic fans was 10 years or less, so there was no need not to recycle a good cover with some updates. Here is Pep 72 from March 1949 and Archie 120 from June 1961.

Did anyone else have the pleasure of enjoying the Freddy the Pig series in their younger days? Absolutely wonderful books by Walter R Brooks and all were illustrated by Kurt Wiese. Great adventures for younger readers, but still stand up nicely when you read them again as adults.

Well so long Ronnie. I hope you and Alexandra find some board where foul language and negative attitudes are more appreciated and you'll have a good time.

Best of luck.

I'll echo that thought....good job. And now we can go back to enjoying discussing Archie comics and knock off the drama. The return of civility will be a refreshing change.

Uncle Scrooge? Good stuff always and a natural for an Archie reader. Try Super Duck some time.

I think destroyed might be a bit of a stretch....seems more like annoyed

Sigh and poor Alexandra keeps mistaking rudeness as humor. I wonder why her karma just keeps going negative. Perhaps she just needs to find a board dedicated to herself. Seems she is quickly wearing out her welcome here.

Why not try being a little more considerate and you might fit in a bit better. Worth a try.

Well I hadn't thought about those cafeterias in stores for quite a while, but it was the norm in the sixties/early seventies. K-Mart usually had the as did my old employer Murphy Mart in Bethel Park PA. Even Sears had one at the anchor Sears at the mall. Usually pretty cheap and mostly decent food. Sort of good the way food in bowling alleys tend to be good. Often it was in a raised area a couple of feet off the store sales floor so you could gaze out at your next purchases as you grazed on the food.
