    Oh man….. I can still remember this. Dan Rather was promoted in 1981 after Walter Cronkite retired. Cronkite’s famous sign-off was “…and that’s the way it is” followed by the date. Dan spent some time trying to figure out how to end his broadcasts.

    The phrase “I’d rather be pulled over carpet tacks and dipped in rubbing alcohol” made me laugh so hard when I first read it back in 1986 that I still use it to this day.

    That’s the one!

    Close, but not quite. The creator of Peanuts passed away in the year 2000.

    I always have to double-check because it seems to me like it was only a couple of years ago that Mr. Schulz passed and Peanuts ended. Then, when he is referenced, somewhere I look it up and realize how long it’s been.

    As part of my job, I find myself making a lot of step-by-step guides to complete a processes. Given the right audience, the final step of many of those guides is either “profit” (South Park) or “Enjoy a Milk Bone in a Commie Free World.” Nowadays a lot of people don’t “get” either of those references. Of course, nowadays, I don’t really care. :)

    It just started snowing here about 10 min ago when I put the dog out (4:05 a.m.) – so for me this strip is accurate to the minute!

    I remember my dad always saying that his favorite Holiday was Thanksgiving. As a kid, I always had Christmas in the number 1 spot. Now that I’m a dad myself, I’ve come to understand my dad’s point of view. Thanksgiving has become my favorite holiday and is my favorite meal of the year.

    Our town did Trick or Treating last night. The weather was warm so there was a pretty good turn out. We probably had 200+ kids. It’s mostly young families with little ones that are knee-high on a grasshopper. They run it from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. so the vast majority of it is happening when it’s still daylight. Once the sun goes down we get the occasional group of teens but it’s basically over at that point.

    I’m enjoying this discussion. LoTR fans come from all walks of life and everyone has their own take on the story and preferences. My one regret: I went to Michigan Technological University to get my engineering degree in the early 90’s. This was before LoTR was on my radar (I had just tasted fantasy writing for the first time by reading the Dragonlance series.). MTU had a literature course dedicated to The Lord of The Rings. I believe it was the only one in the country at the time. Like all students, engineers had to take humanities classes (something we all needed even though we weren’t thrilled about it). If I’d have understood what it was at the time, I’d have signed up in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, in my ignorance, I passed on it.
