The Birdwatchers from Miami 60s Finally I found a clip from my high school days in Miami from 1966! The Birdwatchers were a garage rock-pop band in the Miami area. They dabbled with an Everly Brothers sound in their early career (1964), even releasing a version of "Wake Up Little Susie" on a local Florida label. In 1966, the band released a clutch of garage-pop 45s, including this one called, 'Girl I Got News for You'. I don't think they ever got much further than this, even though they did have an appearance on Hullabaloo.

And Away We Go Surprising as it may be, 'The Great One' made only one appearance on The Tonight Show, this was in 1985. A six-pack a day smoker for years, he battled colon cancer, liver cancer and thrombosed hemorrhoids even while he worked. He was hospitalized at one point in 1986-87, but checked himself out and died quietly at the age of 71 at his Inverrary, Florida home on June 24th 1987.

Three Legged Man Frank Lentini Sicilian-born Francesco (Frank) Lentini was a familiar figure in the early years of the 20th century for an obvious reason: He was born with three legs. One of the legs was malformed (probably from a twin that did not develop properly in his mother's womb). It served no useful purpose other than providing Lentini with a portable stool! Lentini's father was ashamed of him and exiled him from home. Lentini grew up withdrawn and depressed until he visited a home for the handicapped and saw children who were far worse off than he was. He emigrated to America in 1898 at the age of nine. Billed as the Three-Legged Wonder, Lentini appeared in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show and Ringling Brothers' circus. Lentini eventually married and fathered four normal children. He died in Florida in 1966 at the age of 77.

Featured Member  Naomi Iím a transplanted yankee from the Bensonhurst area of Brooklyn NY . Iíve lived in Florida since I was 8, when my family dragged my sister and I out of Bíkln and down to MiamiÖ..but Iím NOT a Florida Cracker! Iíll be a Yankee until my dying day and proud of it. My blood is comprised of 60% olive oil, and 40% chicken soup. In June of í65 I graduated from High School and met my husband Larry, who was a radar operator for the USAF, a few months later, and the rest is history..weíve been married for 43 years and have three great kids: David, Jessica and Kimberly. My first job after graduation was as an operator with Southern Bell , when you could actually dial 0 or 411 and get a live person. Over the years (before I retired) I worked mostly secretarial jobs, my longest being at the University of Florida, and my last being at a correctional facility for youthful offenders. In 1980 I had an editorial column in our local paper, which lasted a few years. Iím mother to a 100 lb golden retriever named Buddy-Beans, a 27 yr old cockatiel named Beeper and at least 500 wild birds and other assorted wildlife that I feed and spoil on 8 Ĺ acres that we call ďClackumís CornerĒ. Even though I was raised in the city, I love living in the country now and could never go back to the noise. Iíve been an animal lover ever since I was a child, and Iím now referred to by the neighbors as that crazy bird lady. After my family, my greatest pleasures are wildlife photography and writing.

Bo Diddley Passes May 2nd 2008 Bo Diddley, a founding father of rock 'n' roll whose distinctive "shave and a haircut, two bits" rhythm and innovative guitar effects inspired legions of other musicians, died Monday after months of ill health. He was 79. Diddley died of heart failure at his home in Archer, Fla., spokeswoman Susan Clary said. He had suffered a heart attack in August, three months after suffering a stroke while touring in Iowa. Doctors said the stroke affected his ability to speak, and he had returned to Florida to continue rehabilitation. The legendary singer and performer, known for his homemade square guitar, dark glasses and black hat, was an inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, had a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, and received a lifetime achievement award in 1999 at the Grammy Awards. In recent years he also played for the elder President Bush and President Clinton. Diddley appreciated the honors he received, "but it didn't put no figures in my checkbook."
