April 12-#100happydays

So, being woken up at 6:00am every damn day doesn’t really make me happy. I don’t know why my kids are early birds.  

 But our mornings together are alright.  I get the kids oatmeal on and get coffee going for myself. (Usually can’t feed myself til later).  


Then as a treat this Sunday morning, my 3 year old wanted to watch sesame  street. So we all cuddled on the couch for a bit. Maybe TV isn’t the best for the kids,( as I keep hearing) but what the hell. Everyone is happy!  



‘SNL’ Where Are They Now: The 1990s

SNL has been one of my favourites for as long as I can remember.
It was so huge for me in the 90’s. This is a great list.


SNL 90

Thanks to the changes made during the late 80s, Saturday Night Live started the 90s on a high. But while there was more stability and certainly more star power in this era, the show still slogged through an uncomfortable period of transition between the gold standard cast of Phil Hartman, Dana Carvey, and Mike Myers, and the cast that was fronted by Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon.

All told, there were 34 cast members that belonged to the 90s. Some blew up, some faded away, and others popped on our screens for only an instant. Read down to see what they brought to Saturday Night Live and what they’ve done since they graduated (or were tossed aside). After that, be sure to check out our look back at the 70s cast and the 80s cast

My little voice is telling me to watch more 80’s TV crime dramas.

I don’t know why, but I thoroughly enjoy old TV crime dramas from the 80’s.
The plots were easy to follow, the special effects were laughable, but every once in awhile the story line was really good!
I can remember being a little kid and watching Hart to Hart with my mom. I recently found this classic on Netflix, and I just finished the entire series. Here’s a summary of the show.
Hart to Hart

It was pretty cheesy, but somehow this wealthy couple solved a murder every week! And seriously, I want to be Jennifer Hart. She has got it all.

When I worked in California about 10 yeas ago, I did straight nights. I would get home about 7:45 am. I found an awesome channel that showed Magnum PI at 8, and Quincy ME at 9.
I love Magnum. I’ve watched the entire 8 seasons. If for some strange reason, you’ve never heard of this great show, here’s some info for you. Magnum pi
I’m also a big Tom Selleck fan. I think he played the character very well. Many layers to Thomas Magnum.


I quite enjoyed Quincy as well, but unfortunately I often fell asleep watching it. However I love medical dramas, and the cases were really interesting. Even if the show was dated, the medical stuff stays the same. I remember one great episode that focused on botulism. I have to find Quincy on line or get some DVDs, and catch a few more. Here’s the synopsis. Quincy

Simon and Simon- ok, but I just never was as invested. Did love the San Diego scenery though.
Anyone have anything to add?
