BTWF: Marc Price and Dan Frischman on Archie Bunker’s Place
June 29th, 2020 under Before They Were Famous. [ Comments: none ]

Before all of the Keatons hated Marc Price on Family Ties, Archie Bunker hated him on Archie Bunker’s Place. How cute was little Skippy when he was 14 years old in that 1982 episode?

That episode had another ’80s sitcom star appear on it. The mime is a 23-year-old Dan Frischman from Head of the Class.


Just what the doctor ordered, General Hospital is getting back to work
June 29th, 2020 under TV Soaps. [ Comments: 1 ]

A week and a half ago, The Bold and the Beautiful went back into production after being on hiatus for three months because of the coronavirus pandemic. They had a successful first day, but they had to take a few days off because the testing facility they used gave them inaccurate COVID-19 results. Once that problem was resolved, they have been back nonstop since last week.

Since they seem to have gotten the kinks worked out, its companion show, The Young and the Restless is going back to work next Monday.

Now that the two CBS Soap Operas are back on the job, General Hospital is getting ready to do the same. According to Deadline, they are hoping to start filming again in mid-July.

Unlike the other Daytime Dramas, Days of Our Live still has a few more months of new episodes in the bank. Therefore, we don’t know when they will get back to work. The other three shows have been without new episodes on the air for over a month. In the Soap world, that is an eternity to a Soap fan.


Good Morning Baltimore, Nikki Blonsky is coming out
June 29th, 2020 under Hairspray. [ Comments: none ]


Hi, it’s Nikki Blonsky from the movie I’m Gay! ##pride ##imcomingout ##hairspray

♬ I’m Coming Out – Diana Ross

Nikki Blonsky was big news when the unknown actress landed the lead role in the musical version of Hairspray. Now, she has some other coming out about her. The 31-year-old actress broke her news by doing a dancing TikTok to Diana Ross’ song I’m Coming Out, and that is her way of coming out.

Hopefully, now that that is out in the open, she can be who she wants to be and date whoever she wants.


Broadway is taking the rest of the year off
June 29th, 2020 under Broadway. [ Comments: none ]

On March 12th, Broadway did something it has never done. The curtain went down for several weeks. Then those weeks turned into months. Today, The Broadway League announced that the Great White Way would remain dark for the rest of 2020.

As of now, they are hoping for the curtain to finally go up again in the early part of 2021. There are just a lot of things that need to be fine-tuned so that they can open up safely in the COVID-19 world.

Chairman of the Board of The Broadway League Thomas Schumacher said, “The alchemy of 1000 strangers bonding into a single audience fueling each performer on stage and behind the scenes will be possible again when Broadway theatres can safely host full houses. Every single member of our community is eager to get back to work sharing stories that inspire our audience through the transformative power of a shared live experience. The safety of our cast, crew, orchestra and audience is our highest priority and we look forward to returning to our stages only when it’s safe to do so. One thing is for sure, when we return we will be stronger and more needed than ever.”

I am sure they will come back even more even stronger and with more energy than revivals like Chicago, Cabaret, and La Cage aux Folles. Manhattan needs them to come back. Heck, I need them to come back. I need to add some new songs to my repertoire because my cat is sick of me singing songs from Cats. Who am I kidding? I would not even hiss the songs from that show. It is all Rent, Little Shop of Horrors, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Cabaret, Annie, Hamilton, Wicked, Hairspray, Hair, A Chorus Line, Hedwig and the Angry Inch and 42nd Street at my place!

On that note, we need to hear the Lullaby of Broadway roaring from The Lion King again. We need actresses to sing Dance Ten, Looks Three, aka T!ts & A$$. We cannot wait 525,600 minutes for another for the lights to go on again. However, we understand why! Come back when you can, we will be waiting for you.


The differences between lotteries worldwide
June 29th, 2020 under Uncategorized. [ Comments: none ]

Lotteries date back to the mid-1500s, when King Francis I of France, and Queen Elizabeth I, introduced them to raise funds for their respective states, but still to this day, they are an enjoyable, and thrilling, pastime for millions of people around the world. And, come on, how many of us haven’t dreamt about winning the massive jackpots involved? Some of us even go as far as googling which mansion, or super-yacht we’re going to buy with our winnings before the draw has even been made!

However, playing your national lottery once, or twice – whatever your preference! – a week can get very tedious. Well, thanks to sites like Mega Lotto, for example, you can now play over 20 of the best different lotteries from the world, all in one place – what’s not to love? Read on as we take a look at the differences between the best lotteries from around the globe!

Lotto Max – Canada

Lotto Max is one of Canada’s largest lotteries, with its highest jackpot pay-out reaching a whopping $65m – one of the biggest ever in the country! Single lines – which are made up of seven numbers – start from little as $3, and draws take place twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays, with jackpots starting at $10m and climbing up to a jaw-dropping $100m. That’s not all! When the jackpot reaches the $50m mark, additional prizes of $1m are offered.

Playing Lotto Max couldn’t be more simplistic. All you have to do is follow these three straightforward steps:

1. Pick seven main numbers between 1-50
2. Purchase your ticket
3. Match all seven numbers to win the jackpot

Of course, if you don’t roll-in all seven numbers, then not to worry, as prizes start from as little as $5 for three numbers, right to 2.5% of the jackpot for six – which is $1.25m if the jackpot is $50m, for example.

Powerball – United States

The Powerball was launched in America in the early 1990s, and it’s one of the giants in the lottery world. Powerball jackpots start at a huge $40m and have no upper limit – meaning punters can win not only millions, but billions! The US game boasts a world record pay-out of $1.5b, which was shared by three extremely fortunate players. Tickets cost slightly more at $3.50, and draws are made twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Playing the Powerball is slightly different to the Lotto Max, but you can still get involved in three easy steps:

1. Pick five numbers from the main pool between 1-69
2. Pick one further number between 1-26 – this is your Powerball!
3. Match all five numbers and the Powerball to scoop the jackpot!

Again, you don’t need to match all six numbers to win a prize. Rolling in just the Powerball will land you the smallest prize of $3.30, whilst landing five numbers will win you a whopping $834,000!

EuroMillions – Europe

The EuroMillions is Europe’s biggest lottery, with jackpots often unmatched by each country’s national version. Since the Euromillions first started back in 2004, it has quickly become one of the world’s favourite games, and that’s largely down to its mouth-watering jackpots! With a top-prize cap of €200m, people around Europe are sent into a frenzy to purchase their tickets for the draws – which take place every Tuesday and Friday. There are also a further 12 secondary prizes at stake in every draw.

To play the EuroMillions, you need to:
1. Pick five main numbers between 1-50
2. Pick two Lucky Stars between 1-12
3. Match all five numbers, plus your Lucky Stars, to win the jackpot

Well, what you waiting for? Lotteries from all around the globe are at your peril!
