There Is No Cat

Groovy '60s Sounds from the Land of Smile!

If they were me and I was you / Would you have liked a present too

I'd like to wish a Happy Birthday to Rat Scabies, drummer for original punk rock band The Damned, and to Paul Anka, who's having your baby. Also to Lisa Kudrow, an actress last seen on Bob Newhart's wonderfully funny but ill fated television show "Bob", where she played the wacky friend of Bob's daughter. And to Arnold Schwarzenegger Kennedy, washed up ex-body builder. Anita Hill, Happy Birthday! Felicitous regards to Vladimir Kosma Zworykin, the great uncle of television. Helene Blavatsky, noted Theosophist, would have been 171 years old today if she had lived. Happy Birthday to Emily Bronte, who we unfortunately have to hold responsible for the career of Kate Bush, also born today. The city of Baltimore is 273 years old today; happy birthday, Baltimore! The US motto, "In God We Trust", is 46 years old. Can that be true? Only 46? Must be another one of those Cold War relics. Happy Independence Day, Vanuatu! And finally, a happy 139th birthday to Nazi sympathizer and war profiteer Henry Ford. Some days, I feel 139 years old myself.

To celebrate, why not visit, search for your name and those of your family members, and tell them to remove you from their database. It won't work (they added me and mine again after I told them not to), but it's worth trying.

Boy, you really don't watch TV do you? Lisa Kudrow was on "Bob"? THAT is where you know her from????

Anywho, Happy Birthday to Ralph Brandi IV. He was once appeared on NPR's "On the Media."

I share my birthday with Jewel, Drew Carey, and Rosemary Clooney (rest her soul).

Nah, I think he was just in denial. Please tell me I'm right. :)

Happy birthday, bro.

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio

There used to be a cat
