LHOP - The Pride of Walnut Grove The concluding six minutes of The Pride of Walnut Grove--a terrific episode of Little House on the Prairie. Here's the plot: Mary does so well on a math exam that she qualifies to enter the state mathematics contest in Minneapolis. The Ingalls family has just $2 to their name, so it looks like Mary's trip to the big city is off. However, the school board votes to foot the bill for Mary and Caroline to make the trip. Since the town is paying her expenses, Mary feels especially pressured to win. This scene opens with another girl named Mary finishing first and Mary Ingalls placing a very respectable second--but the latter feels she's let Walnut Grove down by being runner-up.

1913 Advice for Husbands and Wives Two helpul advice books for British married couples, Don'ts For Wives and Don'ts For Husbands, published in 1913, are experiencing a renaissance in sales today. Here are some of the timeless pointers contained on their pages: FOR HUSBANDS: DON'T try to "drive" your wife. You will be much more successful if you "lead" her. DON’T scoff if your wife wants to drive the car. DON’T keep up the “poor little woman” pose too long. A woman may like to be a plaything for a little while but the novelty soon wears off. DON’T rush out of the house in such a hurry that you haven’t time to kiss your wife goodbye. She will grieve over the omission all day. DON’T dwell on the beauty of other women if you know your wife to be sensitive on the point. There is no sense in rubbing sores, although some men seem to find a strange pleasure in it. DON’T spend night after night at your club, leaving your wife alone to count the hours until your return. DON’T forget to buy your wife a pair of gloves occasionally. She will always be pleased to have them. FOR WIVES: DON’T think your husband not “manly” because he happens to be short and thin and not very strong. Manliness is not a pure physical quality. DON’T moralize by way of winning back the love that seems to be waning. Make yourself extra charming and arrange delicious dinners which include all your husband’s favorite dishes. DON’T expect your husband to be an angel. You would get very tired of him if he were. DON’T try to dictate to your husband on any subject. He won’t stand for it and there will be trouble. DON’T nauseate your husband with talking “baby” all the time. As baby’s father, he will stand a good deal of it, but remember there are other interests in the world. DON’T be jealous of your husband’s bachelor friends. Let him camp out with them for an occasional weekend if he wants to. He will come back all the fresher and full of appreciation for his home. DON’T say, “I told you so” to your husband, however much you feel tempted to. It does no good and he will be grateful to you for not saying it. DON’T let breakfast be a “snatch” meal. Your husband often does the best part of his day’s work on it and the engine can’t work if you don’t stoke it properly.

Brampton Centennial HS School Shooting - 1975 The first school shooting in Canada in 73 years occurred on Wednesday, May 28, 1975 at Centennial High School in Brampton, Ontario. Just before noon, 16-year-old Michael Slobodian walked onto the campus with two high-powered hunting rifles and at least two ammunition belts. He killed John Slinger, a 17-year-old student, and Margaret Wright, a teacher in the English and art departments. Slobodian wounded 13 others before taking his own life with one of the firearms. “It was a beautiful spring day,” recalled Lorna (Matthews) McClusky, a Grade 10 student at the time. She walked into a hallway and heard what sounded like fire crackers. Then a girl who had been grazed by a bullet encountered her and yelled, “There’s someone shooting at people out there!” She and others quickly retreated to a nearby classroom. They remained there, hidden, until police gave the all clear to leave. She still remembers hearing wounded students moaning and calling out for help. That morning, 14-year-old Pam (Read) Hand was headed to her locker across from the first-floor boys' washroom. In one of those washroom stalls, Slobodian was loading his rifles to begin his deadly shooting spree. Hand remembers stopping in the cafeteria just long enough to greet a friend and take a bite of her donut. Meanwhile, in that washroom across from room 112, Slobodian had already fatally shot Slinger. The young victim managed to stagger into the hallway, where he collapsed and died. Nineteen-year-old Michael Gibeault was also in the washroom at the time. He was shot three times in the stomach and once in the arm at close range. He was able to stumble out before collapsing. Critically wounded, he would survive. Slobodian then opened fire on another boy as he made his way into the hallway, firing randomly at students in that section of the building. He walked around the corner to an art room, where he shot Mrs. Wright and another student. A note police found in his home indicated Slobodian planned to kill Wright, science teacher Ross Bronson, and anyone who got in his way. It is unclear what the teachers had done to trigger such hostility. The school was reopened shortly afterwards and the students were urged not to dwell on the tragedy. According to a news report on the 37th anniversary of the shooting, a movement is afoot to erect a permanent memorial to the two victims killed by Slobodian.

Buddy Holly True Love Ways Recorded in 1958, but not released until 1960 after Buddy had left us for a better gig. Though co-credited with Norman Petty, I think this beautiful song clearly demonstrates Buddy's emotional depth. Sure, he made some of the greatest rock 'n' roll songs the radio ever heard, but there was so much more to him than that. I've often thought about what Buddy would have done if he had lived. Would he have gravitated to the country music scene like Jerry Lee,Carl Perkins and Conway Twitty? Maybe, but I think Buddy had a lot more going for him than the rest of the pack. I'm just grateful he left us so much in such a short space of time to remember him by.

Link Wray Rumble 1958 When Link Wray released the thrilling, ominous "Rumble" in 1958, it became one of the only instrumentals ever to be banned from radio play – for fear that it might incite gang violence. By stabbing his amplifier's speaker cone with a pencil, Wray created the distorted, overdriven sound that would reverberate through metal, punk and grunge. Wray, who proudly claimed Shawnee Indian ancestry and lost a lung to tuberculosis, was the archetypal leather-clad badass, and his song titles alone – "Slinky," "The Black Widow" – convey the force and menace of his playing. "He was fucking insane," said the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach. "I would listen to 'Some Kinda Nut,' over and over. It sounded like he was strangling the guitar – like it was screaming for help." When Wray died in 2005, Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen both performed "Rumble" onstage in tribute. "If it hadn't been for Link Wray and 'Rumble,'" said Pete Townshend, "I would have never picked up a guitar."

Missing Beaumont Children - 1966 This is one of the saddest stories I've ever come across: Australia's most famous abduction case. On January 26, 1966, three siblings under the age of 10 vanished from Glenelg Beach on Australia Day, the country's national summer holiday. To many Australians it is the day their country lost its innocence. The three Beaumont children -– Jane, nine; Arnna, seven; and Grant, four -- headed alone to the resort town of Glenelg Beach, a five-minute bus ride from their Adelaide home at about 10 a.m. Due back at 12 noon, their parents raised the alarm when they failed to return by 3:30 p.m. Several witnesses said the three Beaumont children had been spotted in the presence of a blond man at the beach. He was never identified and the children have not been sighted since. Their disappearance spawned one of the largest police investigations in Australian criminal history. Understandably, it forever changed parents' attitudes in Australia about how they supervised their youngsters. In all likelihood, the children, who had often traveled to the resort without their parents, had become friendly with their abductor in earlier visits to Glenelg Beach. After one such visit, Arnna told her mother that Jane "had a boyfriend" at the beach. The mother assumed Arnna was talking about another child--not an adult. On the morning the Beaumont children vanished, Jane bought some treats from a refreshment stand with a one-pound note. Her mother had only given Jane enough coins to cover the children's two-way bus fares. The case remains unsolved.

Celebrity Sweepstakes - Game Show Celebrity Sweepstakes was an NBC game show that aired from April 1, 1974 to October 1, 1976. It was hosted by Jim MacKrell. Here's how it worked: A panel of six celebrities was asked a trivia question. The members of the studio audience, through an electronic voting system, determined the odds of each panelist answering the question correctly by selecting who they thought was most likely to give the correct answer. Based on those odds, the contestants wagered money on a celebrity and then found out if the bet was a good one. Celebrity Sweepstakes was originally slotted against Search for Tomorrow where it did not fare well against the popular CBS soap opera. It was then moved to 10 a.m. where it routinely bettered The Joker's Wild in the ratings. However, when CBS expanded The Price is Right to an hour, Celebrity Sweepstakes was blown away. For years it was believed all Celebrity Sweepstakes episodes had been erased by NBC, but obviously this one survived. This is the final eight minutes of the final show from October 1, 1976.
