this is a 1919, comic strip re-print book. .i had NO IDEA it had been around this long:
"Bringing Up Father" was a comic strip created by George McManus that ran from January 12, 1913 to May 28, 2000. Most readers, however, called it Maggie and Jiggs, after its two main characters.
The strip was about an Irishman named Jiggs living in the United States who comes into wealth but still wants to keep his old pals, eat corned beef and cabbage (sometimes called Jiggs dinner), and hang out at the tavern, much to the consternation of his wife, Maggie, a social climber.

If there is a castle that comes close to matching Harlech Castle in historical importance, that castle is surely Chepstow. Chepstow is a Norman castle perched high above the banks of the river Wye in southeast Wales. Construction began at Chepstow in 1067, less than a year after William the Conqueror was crowned King of England. It was his master castle builder in the person of his loyal Norman lord William FitzOsbern. FitzOsbern's fortresses were the vehicles from which the new king consolidated control of his newly conquered lands. Chepstow Castle became the key launching point for expeditions into Wales, expeditions that eventually subdued the rebellious population.

"I was terrible shy and I used to work on myself to keep from showing it."

You have to watch this amazing clip! The Ross Sisters--Aggie, Maggie, and Elmira--were three teenage girls from Texas who combined average singing skills, a bit of dancing, acrobatics, and some startling contortions in their unique act. This is a clip of the Ross Sisters in the 1944 MGM technicolor musical Broadway Rhythm performing Solid Potato Salad. It is their only known performance that was recorded on film. When this movie was made, the girls were 14, 16 and 17. Their memorable appearance in this film earned them a certain degree of acclaim and some stage bookings afterwards--including a United Kingdom tour in 1946 where they gave a command performance for King George VI. By 1950, however, the sisters' showbiz careers had sputtered to an end. All three had gotten married, and there is no record of them performing anywhere after that year.

Here's a short-lived sitcom from the 1970s that, if it's remembered at all, it's mostly recalled by teenage boys. Sugar Time aired on ABC for just 13 episodes in the 1977-78 season. The show revolved around three attractive young ladies who formed a musical group called Sugar, but also held regular jobs. The threesome tried to break into the singing business by working free of charge at a local nightclub. The show's stars were Barbi Benton (as Maxx), Marianne Black (as Maggie), and Didi Carr (as Diane). Four episodes were aired in the summer of 1977. According to the reference book Total Television, the remaining nine episodes were scattered "irregularly thereafter." This is the opening montage. (An odd snippet of trivia: Didi Carr did very little acting after Sugar Time was cancelled in May 1978. She married a rabbi in 1984--and apparently is still wed to him--but she became a staunch atheist! That must be awkward!)
