Barry Manilow Somewhere in the Night Originally recorded in 1978, this clip is from his live show 'Manilow Music and Passion' Live From Las Vegas. It was originally taped in December of 2005, in celebration of his 100th performance at the Las Vegas Hilton. This show garnered him his second Emmy. Las Vegas Hilton executives in a press conference with Manilow on December 14, 2004, announced his signing to a long-term engagement as the house show. In March 2006, his engagement was extended through 2008. Barry first recorded this song in 1978.

Who has owned a restaurant the longest? Here's a challenge for you. In my community there is a restaurant called Ramon's Cactus Patch, and it's been owned and operated by Ramon Sanchez since 1938. I admit that most of the work is done today by his son Roque (pronounced Rocky) and his daughter Ramona, but Ramon, in his mid-nineties, is still the boss! Can you come up with a restaurant still operating with the same owner for a longer time? Not just the same family, but the same individual. The Cactus Patch has been in its present location since 1962.

Sad Decline of Benny Hill In 1990 The Benny Hill Show was airing in reruns in 97 countries around the world--but not in Great Britain where it had originated. The scourge of political correctness had forced Thames Television to end its association with Hill in 1989 after 20 successful years. Thames defended the move by saying Hill's periodic specials were becoming too costly, viewership was down, and the 65-year-old Hill was looking tired. However, by the late 1980s it was becoming unfashionable for Hill's sexually charged farcical comedy skits to be shown on British TV. (One anti-Hill crusader wildly blamed The Benny Hill Show for all the sexual assaults in the UK!) Hill did not need the money, but he did miss being on TV. He had open offers to appear in Las Vegas and name his price, but Hill did not want to make the journey overseas. Hill was a true loner who never married and was not known to have had a long-term relationship with anyone. The few friends he had said his dismissal by Thames was akin to handing Hill a death sentence. With assets worth more than 7.5 million British pounds, Hill was a bit of a miser. He never owned a car, he did his own shopping, and he lived in a very modest flat. He was also a slob. His flat was usually filled with dirty dishes, papers strewn everywhere, and dirty clothes on the floor. A friend once asked him why he threw his clothes on the floor. "Because they won't stick to the ceiling!" was his pithy answer. In February 1992, the 68-year-old Hill suffered mild heart attack. He was ordered to go on a diet. Two months later he died of another heart attack while sitting in a favorite chair in front of his television. His body was not discovered for three days. Hill's will had not been updated since 1961. The will's beneficiaries (his parents and his sister) had already died. The comedian's vast fortune was eventually split among nieces and nephews whom Hill had barely known. Among those who considered Benny Hill a comic genius were people as diverse as Charlie Chaplin, Michael Jackson and Walter Cronkite!
