    As a kid I don't think I miss a Captain Kangaroo show with Mr Green Jeans.

    As a teen in the 70's Saturday night live was always good, commentary on life, not political left slanted stuff that's on all the time now.

    Then there was also a local show on Saturday night same time as SNL. Dr Sanguinary's Creature Feature. It played some of the greatest horror films, a lot of B movies. The Blob, Dracula, Godzilla, Frankenstein, Night of the Living Dead, Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Fun stuff.

    That reminded me of the great one, Alfred Hitchcock.

    Can anyone recall the name of a magic show on TV years ago. I think it was a husband and wife team and it was geared for children. I just can't recall the program name and the names of the two people.

    I remember Doug Henning's World of Magic. That was mid 70s. But I don't think he was married. (Not that there's anything wrong with that)

    And I'm assuming your screen name refers to the blizzard of 78 we got. I never put it together.

    Yeah, that was a doozy.

    Lived east of the river and use to commute to work for a HVAC Contractor located on John Fitch Blvd. ( route 5 ) in South Windsor. Included condo work, among other type of work. They where somewhat of a hack company IMO. Burr Meadow to Chapel Hill and others condo projects in the general area. Mid 80’s or thereabouts. They where a GlowCore dealer at one point.

    I lived pretty close to lime rock racetrack .awesome place! And Jon Fitch was a resident there, (shall we say )
    He had Fitches garage in Falls Village and was the inventor I believe, of the sand barrels that that you would see at bridge abutments and that type of thing as a safety device on roads.
    As a kid I love to see those Vettes come snarling out of that garage.

    Not to derail the thread so I will have to interject that all this was of course while waiting for the next Batman show lol! At the neighbors house.

    I think those condos at Chapel Hill had gas heat and straight A/C? whereas Burr Meadow had Heat Pumps and electric backup. Another condo project in Manchester had GlowCores A/C believe they where rebadged Heil/Whirlpools. Pleasant Valley condo off pleasant valley rd. was another condo we where involved with. There’s a fair amount of condo projects in South Windsor.

    Also Sea Hunt, yeah I was dumb enough to do light commercial diving during the Winter for a while. No one came up behind me and cut my Hoses, LOL. Lloyed Bridges, must have been stone deaf not to hear those old single Stage regulators, coming up behind him.

    David Letterman had a house in New Canaan, I think one reason he sold it was due to he use to have a persistent female stalker years ago..
