Help for tired, listless and run-down folks

Just received my new TV Guide with an ad for the “first ever” “I Love Lucy Vitameatavegamin Doll!” The 14-inch “poseable” doll wears blue gingham and pearls, speaks in Lucy’s own voice, plays the “I Love Lucy” theme song, and is endorsed by CBS and Desilu, too.

“Mercy Street” PBS flop

Mercy me–“Mercy Street” on PBS is truly awful. I started watching out of boredom and continue to hope (obviously against all odds) that this sorry mess of a Civil War tale will improve. A few of my complaints: the terrible and inconsistent accents, turgid dialogue laced with 21st century expressions, the ill-fitting costumes and wigs, the dime store fake Victorian jewelry, even a buzz cut on the actor playing a preacher, Gary Cole’s unkempt hair and beard, and bad casting choices. A completely lackluster production.
