This is one of my favorite scenes with Bea Arthur.
I have added four more pictures of the Guthrie Drug Store Museum to my Photostream. There is one more place in Guthrie that we visited – the State Capital Publishing Museum – but I haven’t decided yet which pictures of that I want to post. I’ll try to get around to it sometime this week but don’t be holding your breath in anticipation.
By now you probably know that Bea Arthur died Saturday morning. Neatorama has a nice tribute with 5 Things You Didn’t Know About Bea Arthur. That should be six things because I’ll bet most people didn’t know that she was quite an attractive lady when she was young.
Photos from Cassini – beautiful
8 Food Myths – I already knew all of them except the Alka-Seltzer thing. I’d never heard that one before.
Curvy house – I can’t see myself living there but it is beautiful, in a way.
Morgan Cars – Still making them they way they used to.
Warmth – great painting
Russian Prince Seeks Bride – Amazing palace photos. If it weren’t for that creepy first photo I’d almost feel sorry for the guy.
I am really hating UPS right now. I’m so mad I can’t think about anything else so this might be all the blogging you get for a while. Until now I have trusted UPS. I’ve never had any trouble with them at all. I don’t want to go into detail. I’ll only say that there must be a new driver on my route because until now no UPS driver has ever been too f*cking lazy to open the damn gate and drive up the driveway to deliver a package. I’ve come to expect that from Fed Ex but never UPS.
The really bad part is that he put a note on the gate that says it’s the Final Notice but it is, in fact, the ONLY notice I received. And the really really bad part is that I can’t contact an actual person at UPS. Every phone number I can find has one of those automated answering systems and there is no “Press 4 if your delivery driver is a lazy-ass f*cking moron” option and there’s no way to get to a live person. Their website is not any better. It just leads you around in circles like most commercial websites. I did fill out their contact form but I fully expect an annoying automated answer and still no way to contact anyone.
UPDATE: I tried the suggestion in the first comment and got a very nice lady on the phone. The package is supposed to be delivered tomorrow.
I had never heard of Gethuman.com. What a great website! Very useful.
