Hi Everyone, 

I’ll be coming out of retirement to make a first ever appearance along with hundreds of other TV personalities atThe North East Comic Con & Collectibles Extravaganza on December 5th & 6th. at the Shriner's Auditorium in Wilmington off Rte 93 ( I will be signing and offering pictures and DVDs of the actual shows from the 60s. Anything you can do to spread the word would be appreciated. “Bozo’s Big Top” was syndicated nationally in the 60s from channel 5. I’m looking forward to meeting some of my fans who are now in their 40s and 50s and remember that I was a part of their childhood.Hope you'll stop by and say hello!

Class Distinctions:
Dutch Painting in the Age of Rembrandt and Vermeer at MFA Now - January 18

Organized by the MFA, this groundbreaking exhibition proposes a new approach to understanding 17th-century Dutch painting. Through 75 carefully selected, beautifully preserved portraits, genre scenes, landscapes and seascapes borrowed from European and American public and private collections—including masterpieces never before seen in the United States—the show reflects, for the first time, the ways in which paintings represent the various socioeconomic groups of the new Dutch Republic, from the Princes of Orange to the most indigent. Paintings by artists such as Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Jan Steen,are divided broadly into three classes—upper, middle and lower. Nobles, merchants, and milkmaids , reflecting the social order of the new Dutch Republic. A final section explores the places where the classes in Dutch society met one another. Opportunities for these encounters arose in the city and the country, winter and summer, indoors and out, at leisure or at work, on the threshold of a house or of a business.

Unlike any pita you’ve tasted before, this Medeteranean-style eatery is also unique in that there is no printed menu.  It’s all in large letters on the wall and offers choices,such as.Grilled chicken  in a specially created sauce, delicious meatballs, Ground black beans and beets, mushroom lentils and fresh thyme,.

There’s varieties of hummus, chopped salad, and home made soup available as well.Three choices of tea with some scrumptious home-made desserts.It’s a find!  A one of a kind Don’t worry about the line out the door.
