Re: Allright, we'll try this again.........

I’m spreading the word on (gasp!) Facebook and if it gets half as many sales as it does likes it’ll be a best seller.

Re: Saw STAN AND OLLIE last night.....

I could easily imagine Stan absolutely wanting to call it quits with the big studios in 1944, with Babe's reaction being "last time you went searching for greener pastures it brought us here -- and you've been miserable ever since!" So most people here are right, there were lots of opportu...
