Featured Member- ChowDog aka Steve I was born and raised an "Army Brat" in Ft. Campbell, KY(1956) and lived the Army life until I was 10 years old. At which time my dad went to Vietnam and moved us back to my mom's and his hometown of Rockingham, NC which I still call "home". I had the typical home life and my parents were the best in the world as far as I'm concerned. I have moved myself several times since then to include a tour in the Air Force from 1974-1978. Went to college at UNC-Greensboro from 1979-1981. Didn't graduate though. Got married and moved back to Rockingham. That one didn't work out! But good things come to those that wait and married the true love of my life, Mary, in 1995. We have lived in Myrtle Beach, SC since then, but prior to that we lived in Atlanta, GA. Life has sure had it's ups and downs, but my "best friend" Mary always seems to make them OK regardless of what happens. We don't have any children but we do have 2 dogs that have us trained very well! I've had several professions over my life time to include working for Campbell Soup for awhile. But the past few years I have been heavily involved in marine electronics installations with my own business up until 2007 when doctors told me my right hip and my back just couldn't take that any more. What do doctors know huh? At least that was my thinking but boy did they prove me wrong! (So did my back and hip!) Got a job with Kodak after that as Director of Photography and Training at the Hard Rock Theme Park in Myrtle Beach that went belly up after their first year and now on lay off. BUT WAIT! Someone actually bought the place and looks like I may be back at work. Keep those fingers crossed!!! I stumbled on to YRT about a year ago. And for awhile my wife would literally have to make me come to bed! I couldn't get enough of this site! The past few months I went through surgery on my back and was laid up for awhile, was getting better, got a nasty sinus infection and that laid me up as well! (Talk about bad luck!) But all is better and I'm back at it again with new stuff to upload. Steve has made on heck of a site! While I don't know him or others on here personally I can tell you out of all the sites on the internet this is most certainly my favorite. People like "Jedgwrn" who supplys tons of trivia, "Marty6697" with all those great videos (where does he find all that stuff????) and "Lava1964" who I believe has every single episode of "What's My Line"! (I love 'um Lava!!) There are others but I've bored everyone enough. :-) One things for sure, Steve deserves massive "Kudos" for all his efforts! A "YRT" fan forever... The other "Steve", "ChowDog"

Les Paul and Mary Ford How High the Moon Not only did Les Paul invent the electric guitar but also "over sampling" an editing trick that made the sound even bigger.

Olympic Cheater Boris Onischenko At the 1976 Montreal Olympics a scandal enveloped the modern pentathlon competition. It centered around the Soviet Union's team captain Boris Onischenko. Entering the fencing part of the event, Onischenko, a skilled swordsman who had won medals at both the 1968 and 1972 Olympics, was paired against British captain Jim Fox. Fox complained that something was amiss with Onischenko's epee. Officials seized it and determined it had an illegal grip. Onischenko was given another epee and the match continued with Onischenko winning easily. However, further examination of Onischenko's original weapon found it had been electronically altered to register phantom hits. The Soviet team was immediately disqualified. To their credit, the rest of the Soviet modern pentathlon team shunned Onischenko (whom the world media dubbed Dishonest-chenko) for his shenanigans. The Soviet men's volleyball team threatened to throw Onischenko from the highest window of the Olympic village if they encountered him.

The Importance of Correct Spelling During the 2010 Illinois gubernatorial election, Green Party candidate Rich Whitney was the unfortunate victim of a spelling error on the electronic voting machines used at the advance polls. Whitney's surname somehow was misspelled without the 'n'--thus his name appeared on the screen as 'Rich Whitey.' Moreover, of the 23 advanced polling stations, 12 were in predominantly black areas. The 55-year-old Whitney was predictably miffed by the gaffe. Election officials apologized for the spelling error--which was noticed too late to be corrected--but stressed that 90 percent of Illinois voters typically cast paper ballots on election day--where Green's name was spelled correctly. Green finished a poor fourth in the election. He garnered less than three percent of the vote.

1964 Hairstyles Here is the brunette Colleen Corby in the August 1964 issue of Seventeen magazine to remind us all of what a girl had to suffer before she could create her hairdo! Ouchie! Whether you used these brush hair rollers or orange juice cans for curlers, sleeping in these was a chore, not to mention a pain. Anything for beauty, right? But once you got the important stuff out of the way, like rolling up your hair, THEN you could concentrate on your chemistry homework and fidget with your slide rule, a portable mechanical analog computer. To sum it up, today we use handheld electronic calculators; But women STILL go to great lengths and pains for their hairstyles!
