Boy Meets Girl…

Once more, we have broken down our blog into three departments. One we call “Bits and Pieces of an Ordinary Life (some of which are not so ‘ordinary’). Another, “Begged and Borrowed”, includes items lifted from outside sources that we feel would be worth passing on. We call the third “Etc. Etc. Etc.” for just what that expression implies.

Each article for this week is located in a drop down menu in the bar above the main photo. Just hover over the category with your mouse and select the entry you wish to read. You may also access the individual articles by selecting “open” at the end of each preview below.


To do justice to this blog’s ‘Bits and Pieces’ submission, ‘Welcome to Showbiz’, and out of consideration for our readers’ time and energy, we have again broken it down into short easily bookmarked chapters. We must bow to the reality that in this world of high-tech information delivery, a reader’s attention span is often measured in seconds.

Welcome to Showbiz

Chapter 1:  Hollywood CallsGeoff Nate’s big chance… Movies, TV, beautiful women… What more could a Minnesota boy ask for?   (Open)

Chapter 2:   “So This is Hollywood”… Our very own network show by that name bombs, but we learn how to con the TV viewer.  (Open)

Chapter 3: Arthur Godfrey…  Big Time television: Arthur Godfrey and the realities of sex and sin, and the education of a new kid in the Biz.    (Open)

Chapter 4:  The Marx Brothers…  A wild day with a couple of Hollywood’s famous characters.   (Open)

Chapter 5: The Secretary…  A sad saga of innocence deflowered.  (Open)

Chapter 6: Out in the Cold…  From big-time network television to the ranks of the unemployed.    (Open)


Every day we come across something in the media, on the internet or in other peoples’ blogs that we find interesting or important enough to republish for others. It’s sorta like sharing something one has run across in a newspaper or magazine without the postage.

Preview:  Big-time showbiz ladies’ man unmasked, thanks to the LA Times.   (Open)


Etc. Etc. Etc. could be just about anything else we would enjoy sharing with our Blog family.

Preview:  Geoff Nate loves country. Thanks to YouTube we can replay this short David Allan Coe classic.   (Open)
