Funny how Mr Natural never came up on some of those nostalgia threads... that's almost a signpost for a generation. In fact, probably not many outside of (our) generation even know who that is.

not familiar with that one at all. for us it was Captain Kangaroo, Loony Tunes Cartoons and others but to me the iconic ones were Rocky and Bullwinkle and Superdog. a bit later it was The Addams family and The Munsters because both of those fit my sense of humor much better. we still watch both of those once in a while. i don't know why but Mr. Roger's Neighborhood and a few of the other shows that were more popular with a lot of kids were either not on in our area or nobody in my family wanted to watch them. it also could have been they were on at a time when we were outside playing. we were often encouraged to go outside and get some fresh air. :)

Wrong!

Beyond elementary school, have you given any thought as to why that isn't spelled - Rong ? It's the Anglo-Saxon heritage to the English language. Many of the "w" sounds at the beginning of words were dropped by about 500 years ago ;). Strangely enough, people writing English 1) continued using the w, 2) dropped the w, and 3) decided to toss w's on the front of words that never had them before!

Here's an example of #3: "rathe” is an Old English word meaning “advice." It became "wrath!"

Ain't people funny ;)

I can hardly believe that masks became such a political bone of contention. If anything "is what it is" - it is that.

Dr. Lee Norman, the secretary of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment: “Some counties have been the control group with no mask and some counties have been the experimental group where masks are worn,” Norman said, “and the experimental group is winning the battle. All of the improvement in the case development comes from those counties wearing masks.”
