~Packers/Steelers ~ Jack LaLanne ~ Lucy ~ Peanut Butter Day

Good 33º morning.
Started the day out on a sad note, Jack LaLanne died yesterday.
He was 96 and apparently worked out every day, still.
He was certainly amazing.
Ok, I'm sad for the Bears and the Bear's fans. My friends, Suzanne and Phil, were there watching their team hit the skids. I can't believe it wasn't snowing  in Chicago!  So then, the Jets and Steelers. Oh my.... Thought for sure the Jets, my Kristen's team,  were going to pull it out. What a game. And 8º at the stadium in Pittsburgh! With the wind chill it was -1º. Oh my goodness, BURRRRRRR! So now, I'll be with the Packers when they play the Steelers ....The Packer's QB, Aaron (what a great name!) Rogers was born on the same day as my Darling, December 2nd. He is a California boy, born in Chico and went to Butte College. Go Aaron!!!!!! Besides, the Steelers have had enough SB plays and wins (6 and 1 ... they've made the trip 7 times!!!)  Tired of  Ben Roethlisberger, anyway!
So, Friday, after cleaning cupboards... I was watching I Love Lucy. The channel was KTLA in Los Angeles. Cal Worthington was advertising his cars from Long Beach. I couldn't believe that old codger is still alive!!! OMG, he looks soooooo old. Remember when he'd have a lion or tiger, or seal, or bear, laying on the hood of a car, calling him "my dog Spot"???    
Well I looked him up, born in 1920, he's 90 years old and still doing commercials!!! Amazing.
Oh and on California's Gold, Huell was at a See's Candy factory and talking about Lucille Ball doing that show on the candy conveyor belt....
 That was coordinated by See's Candy and one of their managers. Always so funny to watch! In fact, that show was on Friday too!
Historically this date....
not much of interest happened!
But, births this date include....

  Interesting read,
especially about his death.

No dinner. Snacks watching football. Oink oink. Shudda been careful about the eating.... Oh well.... Had a nice fire and was snuggy. 
Too much excitement for one day. Next weekend is the All Stars and then on February 6th, the SuperBowl.
Happy Monday. Ciao.
