Off the Wall!!!

Now here’s a real ‘Off the Wall Topic’… 10 TV Shows after all these years (I admit) I still watch. This was television when the shows were rich in diversity. Everyone "on-set" wasn’t trying to “be” a movie star, or rich & famous. These were the days when it was all about family and the things families encountered on a day-to-day basis. A time when I recall TV life being rich and full of familial dealings!

1. The Cosby Show **Entire Cast!!!**
2. The Golden Girls **Sophia**

3. Family Matters **Urkle, Laura & the grandmother**
4. Andy Griffin **Andy and my favorite Barney Fife!!!*
5. The Brady Bunch **Entire Cast**
6. Sanford and Son **Fred G. Sanford!!!**
7. Good Times **Wilona, J.J. & Penny**
8. The Jefferson’s **Florence**
9. All In the Family **Archie!!!**
10. Leave it to Beaver **Entire Cast**

An Old Show I used to watch religiously that I wished still aired: Columbo!!!

New Favorites

Everybody Hates Chris **Chris & Rochelle**

George Lopez **George & Benny**


  1. Cool post! It is comfy to watch old fave shows and movies. The ones of your list that I remember watching are Andy, Brady, Sanford, Jeffersons and Beaver. Did you used to rush home from school to watch the 3:30 movie and afterschool reruns? That might be before your time but that was such a treat--- and I didn't realize Gilligan, bewitched, Partridge, ect were already reruns-- I thought they were new.

    Like your new header!


  2. Id add Prince of Bel air to that list ;) Now this is the story all about how My life got flipped.........

  3. The one I recall watching most after school was SPEED RACER... (that's how old I am... LOL!) And yes, Bewitched and Gilligan I watched too!

    And Hi Jessica! You know, I actually thought about the Fresh Prince! Love that show... Will and that darn Carlton, but it isn't aired at night like the others!!! ...And I do wonder how your life got flipped by the show.

It’s Official! RYCJs Top 10 Favorite Books in 2017

For those who will desire to miss it, (my You Tube video sharing what books enhanced my mood this year), I took time to spell out the list.

In no particular order:

- Yes, Chef by Marcus Samuelsson
- Pain Don’t Hurt by Mark ‘Fightshark’ Miller
- Love in the Driest Season by Neely Tucker
- Tha Doggfather by Snoop Dogg
- My Life, My Love, My Legacy by Coretta Scott King
- My Mistake by Daniel Menaker
- When I Was Puerto Rican by Esmeralda Santiago
- I Choose to Stay by Salome Thomas-EL
- The Journey Home by Clifton Taulbert
- Cold Hard Truth On Men, Women, and Money by Kevin O'Leary

Thank you, Authors. I HIGHLY recommend reading from this list. I've read many phenomenal books this year, and these rose to the top. Every one of the memoirs, not all written in 2017, kick-started my mood, were humorous in spots, touched me to the core, and in my estimation... promises to grow a Smart, Engaged, Literate Society.

Everyone Has a Story...

...the key is...How will you tell your story? And can you tell it well?

Just finished reading Pain Don’t Hurt by Mark ‘Fightshark’ Miller. (Thoughts here.)

How to Find Books Hard to Put Down?

Tiz’ the season, and joyously I’m starting to get in the Christmassy spirit.

I can’t count the number of reading advocates springing up everywhere posting reading and writing inspiration I respect. One of my favorites are reading lists presented in categories; 100 Books that will have your brows glued to the ceiling, or 100 Books that will have you crying the ugly face… or laughing your B-Hind off, or that other other one, among 101 plenty of others… 100 Books You Should Read Before You Die.
