Lucy!!! You've got some 'splainin' to do!
via a friend on Facebook...

In honor of today's 50th anniversary of Star Trek, we're celebrating the woman responsible for saving the iconic science fiction show -- comedian and entrepreneur Lucille Ball! In 1964, Ball was the sole owner of Desilu Studios and the first woman to ever run a major Hollywood studio. At the time, Desilu producers were looking for ideas that could be developed into new series and they contracted two ambitious writers to develop pilots: Gene Roddenberry with "Star Trek" and Bruce Geller with "Mission: Impossible."

Desilu took the Star Trek pilot to CBS with whom they had a first-refusal agreement but the network rejected it and opted to pick up another new space-themed show "Lost in Space." The studio then took the pilot, "The Cage," to NBC which called it "too cerebral" but, rather than rejecting it outright, they took the unprecedented move of ordering a second pilot, "Where No Man Has Gone Before." The network decided to order a season but the Desilu Board of Directors balked. Fearing that the studio was overstretching itself with three expensive new programs -- Star Trek, Mission Impossible, and a western called The Long Hunt for April Savage -- all but one of the board members voted to cancel Star Trek in February 1966.

Lucille Ball, however, had high hopes for the fledgling show and was impressed by Roddenberry’s vision so she used her power as board chair to override the decision. Production of the show continued and the first episode aired in September of that year. As studio accountant Edwin Holly later conceded, "If it were not for Lucy, there would be no 'Star Trek' today." So the next time that you’re watching Star Trek -- or one of the many science fiction future worlds that it inspired -- remember that you have one more reason to love Lucy!

Yea. Sadly this was a photoshopped picture. But Lucy was a good looking lady for sure.

It would appear that the Heroin Addiction is growing. Way too many people don't understand addictions. It's not just drugs. But this particular drug is wiping out many a life.

I've a friend who's daughter lost her battle with it, via an OD. I'll share that in another post.

No more monkeys driving... OK. I'm up for it. I'll ditch owning at least one of my cars so I can ride in an autonomous car to and from work. - But what about the classic road trip, or sunday drive? Will that become a thing of the past?

Trust me, I'd love to be able to, when I start feeling groggy on a long drive home to let the computer do the long, boring interstate slog home.  I just enjoy driving and don't want to lose those skills or not be permitted to say, take a motorcycle out on the open road.

Tasty Food. Love their Hash Browns. They're the same as they were when I was a kid. Reminds me of when I was a kid on a road trip with the family. - Their Double Cheeseburger is more than a mouthful.

There's a very GOOD reason there's typically a line here. They've got some excellent chef's. A Great menu, and part of the fun of the visit here is to hear what the daily special's are. Love their Quiche Lorraine. They're known for huge (perhaps a full pound of meat?) corned beef sandwiches, and latkes. They're also known for their Saturday Prime Rib dinners. They're closed on Sundays.
