Steve Garvey

A fan most treasured during his day, you never hear about him anymore it seems. From what I can tell… Arguably the most popular player on those outstanding Dodger teams of the late 70s and early 80s. . Garvey was also, I believe, an under-rated hitter. . He was so popular, in fact, that any teammates called him “Mr. Senator” because his clean-cut, all-American image seemed perfect for politics. That squeaky clean image fell apart in his final playing years and in early retirement, however, due to allegations of adultery, financial problems and a messy public divorce. . Garvey laid low for several years, but always remained close to the Dodgers. For all the complaints about current Dodger owner Frank McCourt, he has shown a great respect for Dodger history and heritage, and has gone out of his way to keep former players coming back to the Stadium. He named Garvey a team Vice-President, basically in charge of public relations. Most recently, Garvey has spoken up about the team’s current turmoil caused by the Mccourt Divorce saga. . He said he would often form an ownership group, made up of former Dodger stars, to buy the team from the McCourts. Although it’s doubutful Garvey will be able to raise that kind of money, it would be nice to see the team return to the “family” feel it had when he played for the team and the O’Malleys owned it.

Harriet Beecher Stowe

Hey, Abraham_Bomba, knowing that Harriet Beecher Stowe is butt ugly, isn’t exactly helpful. I need this for a class assignment. After speaking to others on the web, I found the answer. Harriet Beecher Stowe was an American writer and philanthropist, After writing her novel she spoke out against slavery. Harriet Beecher Stowe (June 14, 1811 – July 1, 1896) was an American author and abolitionist, whose novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin (1852) attacked the cruelty of slavery; it reached millions as a novel and play, and became influential in the U. S. And Britain. It made the political issues of the 1850s regarding slavery tangible to millions, energizing anti-slavery forces in the American North. It angered and embittered the South. The impact is summed up in a commonly quoted statement apocryphally attributed to Abraham Lincoln. When he met Stowe, it is claimed that he said, “So you’re the little woman who wrote the book that made this great war.”[ Check out the websites below.

Ginger Rogers

It’s such a lovely hairstyle. I don’t know if it’s her real hair or an extension piece. Anyone who has any experience in hair styling, please help. Here’s the link: I was happy to learn… Hi Muriel, Awww Ginger Rogers, love her. She’s just so elegant and glamorous. – Most likely this will have been her real hair. It’s just cleverly pinned and doubled over so it looks very full. She will have curled her hair first (probably hot rollers would be best) as this helps to add texture to the hair and you will recognize that there is a nice wave near the crown of her hair. – Once you have curled your hair, either comb it through with a wide tooth comb or soft brush and run your fingers through it to turn the curls into soft waves. – Part your hair in the centre, take two sections from near the parting and push the hair slightly forward to create any volume. Secure this in place with either any hair grips or two decorate, hair comb slides which would have been very fashionable in Rogers era – You then want to start styling near the nape of you neck as you want to keep the hair low – Take a small section of hair from either side, twist these sections with your fingers (so that it creates a smooth and neat appearance either side) and pin these into place using kirby grips underneath the rest of your hair – Starting with the top layer of hair near the nape of your neck, you will want to split this into at least 3 sections (more if your hair is quite thick). Take the first section of hair and wrap this around your finger, rolling your hair up towards the nape of your neck. Slide your finger out of the curl and start to pin into place either side of the curl you have created. Spray this in place with any firm holding hairspray – Repeat the above step until all sections of hair have been curled and pinned into place – Do the same for the rest of the hair. You should start to find that you will have to pin curls on top of curls to create the look in the image your provided. – If you wanted to create a tighter, modern version of this look then you could just twist your hair with fingers instead of trying to create loose curls with them and then pin these into place – You may need any normal pins as well as kirby grips to help secure your hair in place You can also try and use curling tongs instead of your fingers if you find this easier but sometimes it’s awkward if they have that bit to clip the hair into. I hope this helps a bit, I have provided any links below that may also help you. It’s a great hairstyle but it may take a little practice to perfect. Great taste. . Good luck. X

Nancy Walker

Does anyone remember a movie, maybe a made for TV movie, I’m not sure, where Nancy Walker played God? I vaguely remember it, but can’t remember what it was called. Basically… . I seem to remember a film, where she played God, as well; I think that it was a made-for-television movie, a comedy I believe, called “Human Emotions” or “Human Feelings”, or something like that. . . . Might actually warrent a little worthwhile research. . (edit) . . Yep, it WAS “Human Feelings”, from 1978. .

Gary Moore

What do we think of him??? He is one of my favourite guitarists I love his song still got the blues anyone else like him??? All that have answered and other answerers wats ur fave song by him ???? I think still got the blues is awesome. I was so happy to find this — Gary is the only guitarist under the cloud of Blues that injected Hard Rock with a metalish point of view sometimes . . . So he’s a genius who included (Blues Rock / Hard Rock of the 70s) and (Metalish Hard Rock / Virtuoso of the late 70s and 80s) in his style WOW…… . He also did an underrated project with my all-time favorite after Zeppelin band (Thin Lizzy) , so that gave Moore a share push in my heart . . . . ***Parisian Walkways , Still Got The Blues . . Etc.

Paul Revere

Well I am doing a school project and he is my person so when did he die. What I found out was – Paul Revere was born on January 1, 1735 in Boston, Massachusetts. He studied at the North Grammar School in Boston. He served for a short time in the French and Indian War. After the war, he married Sarah Orne and entered his father’s silversmith business. Paul Revere soon became interested in the issue of American liberty. He received lots of attention from political cartoons he drew. Paul Revere was a member of the “Sons of Liberty. ” On December 16, 1773, he took part in the Boston Tea Party. On April 18, 1775, Revere and William Dawes were sent to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock of British plans to march from Boston to seize patriot military stores at Concord. A signal was established to warn if the British were coming by land or by sea. From the steeple of the Old North Church in Boston, two lanterns would mean the British were coming by sea, and one would mean by land. One lantern was lit. The British were coming by land. Revere left Boston around 10 PM. Along the road to Lexington, he warned residents that “the British are coming.” He arrived in Lexington around midnight riding a borrowed horse. At 1 AM, Revere, William Dawes, and Dr. Samuel Prescott left for Concord. Revere was captured. Only Prescott got through to Concord. Revere was released without his horse and returned to Lexington. At Lexington he joined Adams and Hancock and fled into safety in Burlington. Revere returned to rescue valuable papers in Hancock’s trunk. When the British arrived on April 19, the minutemen were waiting for them. In 1778 and 1779, Revere commanded a garrison at Castle Williams in Boston Harbor. Revere left the service in disrepute. During and after the war, Revere continued his silversmith trade in Boston. He died on May 10, 1818.
