So far everyone has gotten #14 WRONG. You have to be a space geek to get it correct!


Sure I have a retirement plan, I plan to build and race slot cars.

Don Maclean  gave a concert to my high school class when the American Pie song came out. I know we were his target audience for sales but it just seems weird to me now that he would give a free concert at a small school.

 

I also remember Peter and Paul of Peter, Paul and Mary singing a few songs at our high school gym.

 

Anyone else watch ME tv? They mainly have shows from the 1960's and 1970's. I saw O.J. Simpson in his first "acting" role on an episode of Adam 12 from about 1969. Weird.

I think "Gunsmoke" had more cameos than any other show of the time. Burt Reynolds got his start there as the blacksmith. But it seems every episode had some name star in a secondary role. You only found out about it during the credits at the end.

Route 66, The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock, were all shows that have very early appearances by future stars. We were recently watching some of the final series of “Homeland”, with Beau Bridges as the President (of course, I watched his father in “Sea Hunt” most days after school for a time, must have been reruns I guess). So then I took a quick look at an early “My Three Sons” that I had on the dvr, and there’s a barely recognizable teen-age Beau playing a high school classmate of the oldest son Mike (who left the show partly because he wanted to race fast cars and bikes). The actor playing Mike was Tim Considine, who became (among other things) a highly respected Motorsport historian with several good books to his credit.

Yes you are, "Sputnik" literally means "Satellite" in Russian.

I can only guess that you are thinking of either the Vostok ("East"), Voskhod ("Sunrise") or Soyuz ("Union") which were manned spacecraft.
