A Very Bing Birthday

Among family, friends and my online pals. I've had a pretty good birthday so far. Several of my email newsletters have sent me special emails, also wishing me a happy birthday. (and I also got an email in my spam folder from a "young woman" who wished me a happy birthday and would give me a "special present" if I clicked on the enclosed link. I was tempted, but...)

Bing also sent me birthday wishes earlier today on their home page; the images were animated, but I just took screen shots.

Make a wish?  Sure, so I clicked the button and got this:

I don't know how magical Bing is, but if my birthday wish comes true, I will be a lottery winner sometime this week.  I hope it's the Powerball because it's MUCH larger than the Mega Millions or the Texas Lotto jackpots.

You Wear it Well - Rod Stewart & Faces

This sounds a WHOLE lot like "Maggie May".

Maybe that's why he had to read the lyrics off a piece of paper.

She Wears it Well

There are 7 points on the crown of the Statue of Liberty.  They represent the 7 continents and 7 seas of the world.

R.I.P. Roger Moore

R.I.P. Roger Moore (1927-2017)

While I liked Sean Connery in the iconic role, he was the "rough-edged" James Bond;  Moore added the debonair, suave quality Connery did not possess.

adjective [uhl-truh-kerp-i-dair-ee-uh-n]

1. noting or pertaining to a person who criticizes, judges, or gives advice outside the area of his or her expertise

2. an ultracrepidarian person

I see a LOT of ultracrepidarians every day while online.

The Internet is full of 'em; childless people who know what's best for your child, people who comment about politics yet only listen to one side of an issue and just about every conspiratorial nutjob there is on the World Wide Web.

That's Weird

Weird doesn't follow the "i before e" rule.

That's pretty weird.

The Difference An "R" Makes

Too funny and a weird coincidence:  I was just checking my Facebook news feed and saw one of those hilarious greeting cards on a wall, but what they described on it happened to me just yesterday!

I was flipping through the channels and stopped on Batman Begins but it had already been on for thirty minutes or so and I wanted to watch the entire thing, so I didn't stay long. I watched long enough to see a scene with the young Jim Gordon and the actor looked familiar so I went to IMDb to see the cast of characters and found out the actor was Gary Oldman. To be honest, I wasn't all that familiar with him until his recent role as Sirius Black in several of the Harry Potter movies.  I had seen him in several of his earlier movies, such as JFK and Hannibal, but I guess he just didn't make that much of an impression on me or I didn't recognize him in the different roles.

I went to Google to view some of his photographs just to see how he's aged over the years and how he looked in other movie roles.  I quickly typed in his name, but made a typo.

Trust me, you don't really want to view the pics of "Gay Oldman". (well, maybe you DO, but I sure didn't.)
