Don Grady 1944-2012 I'm surprised that no one had posted anything about the passing of Don Grady. Grady was born Don Louis Agrati on June 8, 1944. He was one of the original Mousketeers from the Mickey Mouse Club. However, Grady was most famous for playing middle son Robbie Douglas on the long-running sitcom My Three Sons from 1960 to 1972. Eldest son Mike, played by Tim Considine, left the cast in 1965. (The storyline had him getting married and moving away.) Thus Robbie assumed the new dynamic of being the oldest brother to Chip and Ernie (who was newly adopted). Grady was a musician whose band, The Greefs, made a handful of appearances on the show. Grady later composed musical arrangements, including the theme for The Phil Donahue Show. He died of bone cancer at age 68 on Wednesday, June 27, 2012.

Ernest Borgnine 1917-2012 It has been reported that Oscar-winning actor Ernest Borgnine has died at the age of 95. Renal failure was the cause of death. Borgnine usually played tough characters, but he won his Oscar in 1955 for the title role of Marty, a gentle-hearted butcher who fears he will never find true love because he is unattractive. The movie was made on a small $350,000 budget but became something of a beloved classic. While Borgnine admitted the Oscar did wonders for his acting career, it may have also indirectly led him into disastrous marriages, including one to Ethel Merman which lasted only a month.

Oliver Sipple - The Man Who Saved Gerald Ford On September 22, 1975, 33-year-old Oliver Sipple (the man with the sideburns in the left of the photo) was walking past the St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco where President Gerald Ford was scheduled to speak. As Sipple moved forward to better hear Ford's speech, he noticed a woman standing next to him (later identified as Sara Jane Moore) reach into her raincoat and pull out a revolver. Sipple yelled, "Gun!" and instinctively grabbed for her arm and deflected it as she pulled the trigger. The bullet, intended for the president who was just 40 feet away, ricocheted off a wall and slightly wounded another bystander. Sipple, a decorated Vietnam vet, tackled Moore, prevented her from shooting again, and handed her over to the Secret Service. Oliver Sipple now became a reluctant celebrity. He was immediately hailed in the national press and received thousands of letters praising his heroics. However, President Ford only sent him a short note and avoided a personal meeting. News organizations wondered why the White House was avoiding Sipple. Although he was openly gay, Sipple’s sexual orientation was a secret from his family and employers. Accordingly, he asked the press to keep his sexuality off the record. However, news organizations refused to comply. The gay community saw the situation as a great opportunity. While discussing whether or not Sipple’s sexuality ought to be disclosed, prominent gay San Francisco's councilman Harvey Milk noted: “For once we can show that gays do heroic things, not just all that caca about molesting children and hanging out in bathrooms.” Milk further suggested that Sipple’s sexual orientation was the reason he received only a note from Ford rather than a formal invitation to the White House. Herb Caen, a columnist at The San Francisco Chronicle, outed Sipple as gay. The Chicago Sun-Times called him a ‘Homosexual Hero’; The Denver Post used the more pithy term ‘Gay Vet’. In Detroit, Sipple’s staunch Baptist family became the subject of ridicule and abuse by friends and neighbors. His mother refused to talk to him. When she died in 1979, his father told him not to attend the funeral. Sipple filed a $15-million invasion of privacy suit against seven newspapers and various publishers, but after a long and bitter process, the courts held that Sipple himself had become news, and that his sexual orientation was part of the story. Oliver Sipple sank into a downward spiral of depression, alcoholism, obesity and drug abuse. By the time he was found dead with an empty bottle of bourbon in 1989, Oliver Sipple was already a forgotten footnote to ethics and freedom of press. His apartment was littered with press clippings about that fateful day in 1975 when he saved a man’s life and subsequently ruined his own.

TV Disaster - My Three Sons Final Season My Three Sons ran for 12 seasons (1960 through 1972), first on ABC then on CBS. It is the second-longest running live-action sitcom in American TV history, behind only The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet. Despite plentiful cast changes, the departure of three major characters, and implausible plot twists, it remained a reliable ratings-grabber year after year. For most of its time on CBS, MTS enjoyed a favorable Saturday 8 p.m. time slot. Prior to what would be its final season, CBS decided to give its hugely popular new series All in the Family the time slot MTS was accustomed to having. MTS was moved to Monday at 10 p.m.--a horrible time for most kids to watch it. In addition to the time change for the twelfth season, a bizarre storyline was introduced: Fred MacMurray, who played family patriarch Steven Douglas, took on a second role--that of his cousin the Laird (Lord) Ferguson McBain Douglas of Sithian Bridge. English actor Alan Caillou's voice was dubbed for MacMurray's whenever Lord Douglas spoke. The plot centered around Lord Douglas' arrival in Los Angeles from Scotland. He came in search of a First Lady to marry and return with him to Scotland. He found Terri Dowling (Anne Francis), a waitress at the Blue Berry Bowling Alley. While initially reluctant to give up her life in America and return to Scotland as royalty, she finally accepted. This odd storyline was a continuation of a plot idea that originally began in the fourth season, when the Douglases visited Scotland on the pretense of having been told they had inherited a castle. With a later time slot--well after many younger MTS fans had gone to bed--the show finished the season outside the Top 30 for only the second time. In an attempt to save the series, CBS moved MTS in midseason to Thursday at 8:30 P.M. Nevertheless, MTS ended its prime-time run in the spring of 1972. Fred MacMurray, bitterly disappointed, protested the show's cancellation to CBS head honcho Fred Silverman, but to no avail. Although MTS was a staple on the rerun circuit for many years, the awful twelfth season was generally not included in the episodes made available for rebroadcast.

THE Rotary Phone The rotary dial with holes was first introduced in 1904 but did not enter service in the Bell System until 1919 Have you ever watched an old television show and seen a rotary style telephone sitting on the table? Ever wonder how to use that phone? Well today is your lucky day! You are about to find out how to do just that. 1Remove the handset from the cradle.(The cradle is where the phone rests when not in use) 2Place the handset to your ear and listen for a dial tone. 3Use the index finger from your other hand to dial the first number. Do so by placing the finger in the dial's hole that is above the number you wish to dial. The dial, is also called the finger wheel, is circular. 4Rotate the dial clockwise until your finger touches the metal stop. Remove your finger from the opening to allow the dial to rotate to its original position. 5Find your second number and repeat step three and four. Do this for the remaining numbers. When you are finished with your conversation, simply place the phone back on the cradle. NOTE, If you have long or decorated fingernails, and are concerned that dialing might damage them, you may use the eraser end of a pencil to dial.
