    Aaaah! I was already going to watch this to try and catch the Beatles appearance, but if the Carpenters are on it, I'm sold. :D (hoping they actually appear and this isn't like Carol Burnett.)
     
  3. "Decades" did not mention Karen's death date (Feb 4th) this year. I was disappointed. Considering that Karen was a major music star and the fact that her passing brought the whole anorexia issue to the spotlight, it seems to me she should have been recognized...This "network" seems to thrive on mentioning important dates in history, they did a whole segment on Madonna (I think it was her birthday), but they couldn't give a mention of Karen, or The Carpenters for that matter...

    On a different topic, I've just joined imgur.com so am hoping to work out how to post some photos and articles, when I've got time. I hope any dummy can do it.....otherwise I won't be able to work it out.

    [​IMG] Carpenters Souvenir I'm making a bit of a hash of this. Here is a link to a photo I took this morning of 'Special Souvenir' book with pull-out poster, 36 pages, published by Phoebus Publishing, London, UK, around 1976, and also available in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa at the time.

    This is my first attempt at posting links to my photos. I hope to make better posts and take better photos as I get more used to the whole thing.

    Already attracting a not funny comment about eating on I imgur.com. Have to work out whether I can keep images private there and still link them to this forum.

    [​IMG] Carpenters Souvenir I was experimenting with my imgur.com post, above, and deleted the image on the link so am now creating another link. See above for a description. I hope this works.

  10. Heh! Ansett Airlines

    We had booked a trip to Australia for October of 2001, our first-ever trip there. Air New Zealand was the big flight to Sydney from the US, and then all of our little flights within Australia were to be on Ansett.

    Days before we left, we got notice that Ansett was no longer flying. They were going out of business, so we had to attempt to rebook on Qantas, which was the only game in town at that point. We had to shuffle a few dates and cities around that too. Not fun.

    Seems the kangaroo was never meant to fly. (That was Ansett's insignia - 'The Flying Kangaroo').

    Then we had Tiger Airlines. Tigers are no better at flying than kangaroos were. Let's not even mention Jetstar. Virgin and Qantas at least fly - roughly when they are scheduled to fly, too!!

    Returning to my post earlier, I didn't see them in this episode- was rather bummed. I actually did see them on an episode running on the 14th- they were the first performance. I've seen that footage a dozen times at least and was still mesmerized. As I was able to save it to DVR, I watched it several more times. :D

    Madness.
