Don't look at me -- I only report the news . . .

Thanks to our friends at Stat Counter,
the data is in:



And the results aren't pretty.
At least, not for Eleanor.



















It's a fair question. Not a single hit for Eleanor Roosevelt since I posted her picture a week ago, but the Bob Barker requests keep pouring in.

H.L. Mencken may have been on to something when he said --

"Nobody ever went broke
underestimating the taste
of the American Public."




Bob sez:

Could be something to do with
those sequined dresses . . . ?

Maybe ya ought to do a Small Works piece of Bob and sequined dresses. I'd suggest stuffing those dresses - Big hits on the counter.

And colonoscopy wouldn't hurt either. bwhahahaha.

A Bob Barker piece is curiously tempting . . . since my work consists of "stuff I make while watching The Price is Right," it's only fitting. Can't believe I hadn't thought of it before. Any other great ideas out there? I could use some.

A whole game show series! Wheel of Fortune with those letters spelling out a message! Drew Carey, Kitty carlisle from What's My Secret!

Ok, maybe I need coffee before I come up with any good ideas.

Hearing the name Kitty Carlisle reminds me of a lot of great game show staples . . . Paul Lynde, Charles Nelson Reilley, Arlene Dahl, Phyllis Diller . . . and what about the Newlywed Game? Or the Dating Game? More stuff for the stewpot -- thanks, VO.

We had a dating game show here in Australia in the 80's called Perfect Match. I loved it.Eleanor must be truly miffed but she seems a gracious lady from what I've read, with a sense of humour.I love this quote from her..."I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue:no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall." Also Susan, thanks for sharing your trip to Vermont recently - I enjoyed that.

I had not heard that particular quote -- thanks for making my day, Pam!
