Today is my Grandmother's birthday (no, don't say Happy B/Day as she's been dead for many years). But she raised me and I was thinking of how much I respected and honored her. Even when I was a young smart-ass who thought I knew it all, I allowed her the wisdom she gathered in her many years.

The man on the L is Len Goodman, one of the judges of Dancing With the Stars. Here comes the tie in of respect and age. Len is 67 and has danced ballroom in England (The source of ballroom) since he was 19. Len is a purist and knows dancing. He's fair, honest and an encyclopedia of dance. I've always agreed with him and honored his judgment.


  1. nice to see him as a young man! :) he's still very handsome now.

  2. I seldom watch regular tv but I saw that part about Len because I hadn't switch the channels after the local 6 o'clock news. Anyways, it seemed to me that Len backed off to spare the contestants' egos despite being right on critiquing how the badly the pair applied their moves to the particular style of dancing.

  3. Hello fellow hopper!

    So glad I was able to visit your site! :) I am visiting from the Coffin Hop--I am # 63-- and happy to take part in this hop also. This Halloween I will be dressing as a swashbuckling pirate. Two of my favorite scary books are The Witching Hour and Let the Right One In. A fave movie is Bram Stoker's Dracula. I love this time of year--we get to indulge in a bit of darkness. Please hop over and visit me if you like at where I am giving coupons to your choice of my books and you can enter and win a NOOK! Thanks and hope to see you there!
