Waco Handheld Slot Machine

Waco has been making very nice toy slot machines for years. This is a battery operated model with actual pull handle and stop buttons. It still operates despite being manufactured in the early 1980's.

Some toads attacking at Stonehenge. In the movie "Help!" the Beatles performed "I Need You," and "The Night Before" on the Salisbury Plain not too far from Stonehenge.

The Very Last Baseball Post

Oakland A's Bleacher Seat Stubs

I saw Ken Burns "The Tenth Inning" documentary tonight on PBS. Wonderfully obsessive that Ken Burns! Baseball was once the bargain basement of live sporting events. Baseball is now expensive, and memories are cheap.

The Burgie Moon Man

Falstaff brewed Burgie in San Francisco, California in the 1970's. The Burgie Moon Man appears in David Lee Roth's video "Just a Gigolo," and the Spice Girls video for the song "Say You'll Be There."

Ventura County, California

Here's a few places from the county where I reside. For all those missing baseball, the kids, or home, this is for you!!!

Mike Lyman's Grills, Los Angeles, California

Menu, Mike Lyman's Grills, Los Angeles, California
Mike Lyman opened his first "Grill" in 1935 at Hill and 8th Street in Los Angeles, California. His restaurants were a great piece of California and Los Angeles history. Mike passed away in 1952, George Burns and Chico Marx both attended his funeral.
