Tinker Toys The Tinkertoy Construction Set was created in 1914—one year after the A. C. Gilbert Company's Erector Set—by Charles H. Pajeau and Robert Pettit in Evanston, Illinois. Pajeau, a stonemason, designed the toy after seeing children play with pencils and empty spools of thread. He and Pettit set out to market a toy that would allow and inspire children to use their imaginations...

American Ingenuity in the 30s This is an original idea, but I think I'd rather just stay on shore.

KOLCHAK THE NIGHT STALKER    Opening Network series that ran from 1974-1975. Carl Kolchak, played so well by Darren McGavin, was a reporter for Chicago's Independent News Service, and a magnet for situations involving the supernatural. He turned his investigative skills to vampires, werewolves, zombies and all kinds of legendary creatures, but in the end he always failed to convince his skeptical editor, Tony Vincenzo, played by Simon Oakland, that the stories weren't just products of his own overworked imagination. I was so faithful to this show, and was so disappointed when they cancelled it.

NIGHT GALLERY   THE CEMETERY  Ending For those old enough to remember, Night Gallery was created and hosted by the great god of imagination Rod Serling, as a follow-up to The Twilight Zone. The opening was set in a shadowy museum, where Serling unveiled a dark and disturbing collection of canvases as preface to a highly diverse anthology of tales in the fantasy, horror, and supernatural vein. The first story from the 1969 pilot of Night Gallery, entitled The Cemetery. A black sheep nephew (McDowell, naturally) murders his ailing uncle (George McReady) for the inheritance, only to find some disturbing changes in the old man's painting of the family graveyard. Some good acting as well from Ossie Davis. The night I first watched this I was all alone, mom was working late, dad was sleeping, and I was on the floor in front of the tv having the living daylights scared out of me. I just loved it!!

THE HAUNTING   Trailer   1963 Forget any other horror film, or any other film about the supernatural you've ever seen, this will scare the c*** out of you, no joke. I was raised watching these types of films, with my mom, so I've seen them all, but this scared me to death. It's what you don't see that will get to you. And there were no special visual effects, like in so many other films of this type, it was all done with sound effects, relying on your imagination to finish the job. Shirley Jackson wrote the book, from which this was taken, in 1959, titled The Haunting of Hill House.

Happy Birthday PAUL WILLIAMS      Sept 19th 1940 Paul Williams wrote the soundtrack for a generation. His songs were everywhere in the 1970s -- you could hear them on the radio, television, movies, and The Muppets. The simple honesty of his lyrics still captures attention and spurs the imagination. This song, The Rainbow Connection seems to fit him so well. Happy Birthday Paul Williams, you've given us happy memories!

Brooklyn Bridges 125th Birthday One Hundred and Twenty-five years after it's construction, the Brooklyn Bridge remains a powerful symbol of engineering might and imagination, and a revered fixture in the landscape of the nation's largest city. And it can still attract a crowd, like the one at the bridge's 125th birthday blowout Thursday night, May 22, 2008, which featured fireworks, a Navy flyover, a colorful new lighting scheme, a musical tribute to honor the storied span, and even a birthday cake in the shape of the bridge. ********* More Info in Comments:

Apollo Animation Screens I remember watching live the excitement unfold on our TVs of the moon landing. But there were times when there was no communication between the spacecraft and Houston; we had to stare at these animations and use our imaginations.

President Tyler Has Living Grandsons The tenth President of the United States was John Tyler. Elected as vice-president in 1840, Tyler assumed the presidency when President William Henry Harrison suddenly died in office in April 1841. Tyler thus became the first VP to replace a sitting president. Not a great chief-executive by any stretch of the imagination, Tyler's political opponents mockingly referred to him as "His Accidency." Tyler completed Harrison's term and did not run for re-election in 1844. Incredibly, Tyler, who was born in 1790, has two living grandsons as of March 2015! This genealogical chart shows that Tyler's 15th child (Lyon, who was born when his father was 63) fathered two sons when he was a septuagenarian in the 1920s. The magazine Mental Floss learned about Tyler's octogenarian grandsons in 2012 and published a tidbit about them. This led to the 'boys' being interviewed for an article in New York magazine. Shortly thereafter news agencies around the world relayed the remarkable and curious story that a U.S. president born in the 18th century had two living grandchildren in the second decade of the 21st century.
