Air Travel in the Jet Age

Last Sunday, ABC premiered a new TV show about the jet age in the '60s based on iconic Pan Am airlines.  What was it really like flying around the world in flashy jet planes just sixty years after Orville and Wilbur first took to the sky?  Is "Pan Am" based in reality or is it more fiction than fact?

If you've been surfing Google recently, you've probably seen Big Bird, Cookie Monster and Oscar hanging out at the top of your screen.  And if you're like me, you've spent this week reminiscing about the fun you had watching Sesame Street as a kid.  I remember trying to eat dessert like Cookie Monster and carrying around my Big Bird doll everywhere I went.  And when the theme song started, I plopped down in front of the TV and didn't move until the show ended.  I still have fond memories of Big Bird, Oscar, Bert, Ernie and the whole bunch.  
 
As a kid, I thought the show was all about fun.  I had no clue I was learning counting, colors,...

Famous TV Chefs

I don't cook much.  My oven still looks like it came off the showroom floor.  And when Hurricane Ike rolled around, nothing much changed for me food-wise.  Peanut butter and crackers?  No problem.  Soup or beans?  I have it covered with my trusty can-opener.

Hulu.com: A New Way to Watch TV

When I was a kid, I remember rushing home after school to watch my favorite cartoons like He-Man and Thundercats (I had a big brother so I rarely watched girly stuff). If I didn't make it home in time, I wouldn't catch the beginning of the show - or I might miss it altogether! Those were the days before we had cable TV and we only had 6 or so channels to choose from and we had to actually get up and walk to the TV to change the channel because we didn't have a fancy-schmancy "clicker." Eventually, we got cable TV and later a VCR. Finally, we could record things and watch them whenever we wanted - as long as we remembered to put in a blank tape and set the VCR to record. Fast-forward to adulthood and TiVo. Oh, how I have loved my TiVo!...
