Seems like only 50 years ago these were around. :beer:
America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. Abraham Lincoln

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power. Abraham Lincoln

Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm. Abraham Lincoln

The clip from the dance show on KTVI reminded me of a kinescope (transferred to tape) my late father - who had worked at KTVI - showed us of Ike and Tina Turner appearing on that show in the very early years. Another clip of Ike on that station has been posted to youtube, as well.

The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

GREAT Post! Thank you much. Took me back to when I parted my hair down the side instead of all across my head. As we said back in the day, "F*ckin' A!"  :thumbsup2: :thumbsup2: :thumbsup3:
