Did you notice the site looks different?
First up, check out the CHALLENGES BY MY PALS page. As I discover people who participate in my challenges who have Weekly Challenges of their own, I’ll be adding them to this page. You can add your challenge to the comments if you like so I know. But I reserve the right to say no and delete the comment. If you aren’t an active part of our community I can’t see my promoting your site … yet. That may sound unfriendly but I think it’s fair.
As for the new look of the blog. I’m experimenting. My theme has different layouts and I’m going to see what I like.
I’ll be putting videos at the top of the sidebar and for now those will be the LAUGH of the WEEK. You don’t have to leave the sidebar to watch or listen to it. Click the play symbol in the center and you’ve got it.
I won’t be doing a post each week about the video I show. Instead, it will be there on the sidebar for you to click and watch if you like. I intend to keep them as short as possible. This weeks is longer than the ones I will like to normally use of no more than 2:00.
Let me say a little about this weeks LAUGH of the WEEK.
At 4:55 it is worth it to see Tim Conway attempt to make Carol Burnett break character during a skit where four characters are playing Password. Tim has just said Elephant, which is wrong, in response to Carol’s clue. All Carol has to do is get Vicki Lawrence, Mama in this skit, to begin her part by giving a clue to guest star Dick Van Dyke. But Carol has to be able to speak in order to do it.
A little backstory to this segment. There were rehearsals earlier in the day. Even then, Carol was having a difficult time keeping a straight face. The director came through during makeup and told Vicki Lawrence, of Mama’s Family fame, actually the youngest member of the cast who played Mama the one in glasses and the grey wig, that the Elephant story had changed and to be prepared for anything.
Vicki knew it would be trouble trying to get through the skit with a straight face. Her husband, the makeup man on the show, told her to get Tim Conway for a change because Tim was always trying to crack people up, even making Harvey Korman, who some may know from Blazing Saddles, pee in his pants during the famous Dentist skit. Vicki had a difficult time in the past doing anything off script because she was so young and felt she shouldn’t. Her attempt to ‘get’ Tim has a word in it that I don’t use. Watch and see what happens.
