I Wrote a New BOOK!!!!

I’ve been working on this secret project for more than a year just after I bought my laptop computer back in December 2016.  The new book is called:

The Outside In View of Uncommon Bostonian: 

What a Autistic Black Woman Sees

I went to the publisher called BookBaby to create both a paperback book and an ebook.  It includes the blog posts I made when the orignal Uncommon Bostonian blog was connected to The Boston Now dailey newspaper back in 2007 to 2008.  It also has some of the essays I’ve written in recent years and some of my black and white paintings that I made in the last couple of years.  I write about the Beatles, the soap One Live to Live, the Dave Clark Five, the Monkees, and other things.  I created the artwork on the cover.  It’s my Purple Haze painting.

Here’s a picture of both the front and back cover of the paperback.

Happy Birthday, Bill!

Happy Birthday, Bill Clinton!

The former President of the United States is celebrating today.  Hope you’re having fun, Bill!  I met him once several years ago at a book signing.  He was very nice to me.

Recently, Bill was in Texas with former President George W. Bush and posed with the two statues of George W. and his daddy, George H. W. Bush.

Julie also guest-starred on Star Trek.

Julie shows off her piano playing on My Living Doll, a TV series that she did with Bob Cummings.

Last but not lease, Julie made a guest appearance on The Monkees.

Vacationing at Old Orchard Beach

I am glad to be on vacation.  Once again, I have journeyed up to Old Orchard Beach, Maine, to get some relaxation.  Not a moment too soon!  I was hoping to write in this blog last week, but I was so preoccupied with other things.

On the bright side, I went to see Earth, Wind, & Fire with Chic featuring Nile Rodgers at the Boston Garden last Saturday night.  I loved it because it was the second time I have seen Earth, Wind, & Fire and the very first time I have seen Chic.  Great music.

I drove up to Maine using my new Mustang that I got last Fall.  It did well going beyond 70 mile speed limit on the Maine Turnpike! Glad that no cop pulled me over for going at 80!!!

Time for some relaxation now.

 

Dr. Doom Movie Star?

It seems that, instead of another Fantastic Four Movie, 20th Century Fox is going to try a stand alone movie featuring their archenemy, Dr. Doom.  Legion showrunner Noah Hawley revealed this at the San Diego Comic Con last Thursday.

Full story is here at Newsarama’s website.  Doctor Doom Movie In Development at 20th Century Fox

Here’s a YouTube video explaining the origin of Doctor Doom.  It sounds like a good movie.
