I see we have a comedy thing going on, but I don't think anyone here will win an Academy Award, or a Pulitzer, for that matter.

It is good that Fresno got dragged into this game. I have intended to post a Fresno picture for quite a while, but have not gotten around to it yet. When I first saw the one wagga posted, I was hoping it was the Bonnie and Clyde posse, which would have justified a comment about Faye Dunaway in her heyday. Too bad -- right general era, wrong state

Well, you could pull up a map (or Google Earth) downtown Fresno, and pretend to pedal around the neighborhood on your bike.

Does "lauched" mean "launched" or "lunched"?

Don't know whether there is a connection, but . . .

Does anyone remember the Lone Pine Bakery and what it was famous for?

OK, back from a terrific Yosemite trip, nobody seems to have gotten the bakery - so here are some healthy clues:

Two Fresno natives could have visited the bakery. One actually wrote about it. That person won both the Academy Award and a Pulitzer Prize, being the only American to win both. You would think they would name a local theater after them.

The other almost certainly was seen there - you could guess by the surname (if used). This person is the sole winner of an Academy Award, a Grammy Award, an Emmy Award, three Golden Globes and a Cannes Film Festival Award among others for work in film, music and television. And is the only person in history to have received all of these awards.

What In The World Happened Here? XXIV:

This could be the lady's pajamas.



In Yosemite I saw many very tall waterfalls.

I refuse to push that button (yet).

Two New York City natives (Richard Rodgers and Marvin Hamlisch) won Academy Awards and Pulitzer Prizes. Also Emmys, Grammys, and Tonys. Both could have a local theater somewhere named after them. But, in addition to being from Fresno County, I live in Glendale, which is not Yerevan but it's close. So I know who you meant.

That's about as much trivia as I can handle in a day.

There is a singer from El Centro who later dropped out of Fresno High School. Doesn't normally use two names but my Glendale comment applies to the original surname.

Speaking of Greg Allman. I saw The Allman Bros. the first time in 1970 at The Whiskey A GoGo.Stood with my elbows on the stage. I was blown away with the dualing slide guitars in perfect sync with Duane Allman and Dickey Betts.Gotta love Southern Rock.Saw Duane Allman with Derrick and the Dominos AKA Cream(Eric Clapton et al) with Duane Allman and Steve Winwood.Crazy good times.That was definately "happening" there.

Layla. Good choice Harvey
So I researched my own comments and I was wrong about the make up of Derek and the Dominos. I said Cream plus Duane Allman and Steve Winwood but it was actually Blind Faith that was Cream plus Steve Winwood.
Derek and The Dominos was Clapton with the bass and drummer from Delaney, Bonnie and friends, and Duane Allman. FWIW."It has been a long strange trip". Oh so long ago 41 years.

Not currently fresh water.

Waterfalls are mostly, but not always where you expect to find them.
