Acts, Not Words.


On one hand, I want to say it's sad to see our old veterans passing, but the man has earned his rest.

Yahoo Entertainment - Sidney Poitier, Pioneering Oscar-Winning Actor and Director, Dies at 94

Sidney Poitier, the pioneering actor and director who became the first bankable Black leading man in Hollywood, has died at age 94, according to the Bahamian Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Poitier, who was born in the U.S. but grew up in the Bahamas, broke multiple racial barriers in his decades-long career, including when he became the first Black actor to win the Academy Award, for his role in 1963’s “Lilies of the Field.”

Age 65.  I didn't know he was quite that old but then again, that's way too young. 

We survive the indiscretions of our youth, only to live long enough to see our childhood slowly die with the passing of the entertainers we grew up with.

No kidding.

A lot of my childhood was spent watching him on "Full House" and on "America's Funniest Home Videos".

I usually don't post in these threads and can't believe no one did for this one.  Still can't figure out how to post pictures.

Magawa, the landmine-sniffing hero rat, dies aged eight

RIP little hero.  One of the charities I donate to is the mine sniffing rats.  I have currently "adopted" one named Ronin.  Magawa's spirit lives on in the band of rats who follow in his footsteps. 

ETA: The APOPO link in case anybody would like to donate to the program in Magawa's honor.

Ooops, see, I really don't pay attention to these at all.  I'll go back to ignoring these.  Carry on.

Charles Edward McGee, one of the last surviving Tuskegee airmen, passed away today at the age of 102. He served from 1942 until 1973 and flew a combined total of 409 combat missions during that time (WW2, Korea, and Vietnam).

It is with great sadness that we share the loss of Navy veteran and renowned artist Dick Kramer. Through his exceptional talent he traveled the world, met presidents, and honored those who serve by making them the focus of his keen eye and illustrious career.

Occasionally, he took a break from his serious work to create lighthearted cartoons for The Armory Life. Today, the whole Springfield family mourns the loss of a loyal friend, devoted father, loving husband and a true patriot.

Meatloaf. Age 74.
2022 came in with a list, I fear.
